Need Emergency Dental Care? Call Us First!

Dental Emergency in St. Petersburg, FL at Jeffrey Spilman, DDS

Read Transcript

If an emergency patient calls our practice, the first question we ask them is “how soon can you be here”. If I’m busy or if I have a full office, I will see them right away, at least to understand what needs to be done and I will do my best to work them into the schedule as quickly as possible but they will be seen that day. Living in Florida and working in Florida, we are the sunshine state and we get vacationers coming all the time and it’s year round, it’s not just seasonal anymore because people love our beaches and living and working so close to the beaches, we see a lot of vacationers. When a vacationer calls and has a problem, we ask them the same question, “how soon can you be here”? So whether that would be getting them out of pain or resetting a temporary crown or even just temporizing them so they can get through their vacation and get home to their regular dentist. These patients are very grateful for anything you can do and we’re happy to take an x-ray and email that x-ray to their dentist or print out a copy if they need it to send them home and they also have a copy of my notes so their dentist at home has a heads up of what went down.

When you have a dental emergency, all you can think of is the pain in your teeth or gums. Calling a dentist’s office and finding out that they will not make time in their schedule to see you can be frustrating at best and devastating at worst. If you have a true dental emergency, you need immediate care, and Jeffery A. Spilman DDS can help you.

We will always see our existing patients right away, and if you are a new patient we will make time to see you, as well. We care for our patients, and we are committed to relieving your pain and giving you the dental treatments that you need.
