We always set aside emergency times for both of our doctors. We have two doctors on at any one time. We try to get them in that day. Usually, we can. If they call before noon, we can certainly get them in that day.
Few active families get through life without a dental emergency or two – and sometimes many more. Lakeside Dentistry can help you and your family out by relieving your pain and perhaps saving teeth you are in danger of losing.

Dental Emergency After Hours
Many dental emergencies don’t happen during regular business hours. But usually the sooner you can see a dentist, the better the outcome. That’s why our compassionate team will make the best effort to see you as soon as we can, even if it is in the evening or on a weekend.
Getting to our office in a timely manner is fairly easy with or without a dental emergency, thanks to our extended hours. We open at 7:30 a.m. on weekdays, and we stay in the office until 7 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Most patients, if they call in and there is an urgent need, we can get them in the same day. We try very, very hard to do that. Same day appointments most likely can happen. If it's an evening or a weekend, our home phone numbers are all on our recording, so you can always reach one of the three doctors. Any evening or any weekend, if we need to get in to see you, we try to make it happen. If we can do anything over the phone, too, we always take care of it.
- Broken tooth. Depending on how bad the break is, our restorative dentists will evaluate the break and fix it with either a filling or a crown.
- Knocked-out tooth. If your tooth gets knocked out, our dentists may be able to help you keep it. Place the tooth in milk and, if possible, try to gently work it back into your socket and then see us as soon as possible. If it can’t be saved, we offer tooth replacement options including dental implants, which can be topped with restorations such as dental crowns or dental bridges.
- Toothache. Tooth pain can signal decay and even infection. Depending on the severity, we will treat it with a tooth filling or a root canal.
