There were more than 2 million emergency-related dental visits in the U.S. This is according to a Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project study in 2018. Accidents can happen and people often find themselves in need of a dentist immediately. Emergency dental care is like a first aid service and has the same importance. It helps provide pain relief and prevent further damage. Accommodating emergency dental care in your practice can directly improve the lives of your patients, as well as the success and attention your practice receives.
