As we’ve become established in the community, our practice has been seeing more and more people walk through our doors to get dental emergencies treated. In our experience, those who don’t make an effort to visit the dentist regularly are more likely to experience dental emergencies.
As it turns out, over 1/3 of Americans don’t visit their dentist regularly, according to recent data from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. That means at least 1/3 of Americans are at higher risk of experiencing a dental emergency later in life.
We greatly appreciate those who come to the practice for regular visits, but we understand that many of our patients have friends and family members who may be experiencing a dental emergency. Instead of allowing their condition to get worse, feel free to refer them to our practice; we’d love to meet them and provide treatment!
