Call Us in Any Dental Emergency!
At Newingham Dental Center, your oral health is our number one priority. Since we began this practice, we have remained committed to providing the highest level of care and service possible and providing our clients with the treatments they need no matter what. If you are having a dental emergency in Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Franklin, Troy, or Royal Oak, please call our office immediately. We will do the best we can to see you on the same day and if possible within the next few hours. In some emergencies, seeing a dentist in the first few hours is critical to saving the tooth and preventing additional problems.
We Care about You and Your Family
If you call our office for an emergency, we give every effort to get you in that day. Sometimes it’s a situation where I need to just call you back and talk to you about what’s going on and give you a better idea of what you can expect moving forward and I don’t have to see you.
I can save you a trip to the office. Perhaps it’s better to come in the next day but if there is an emergency where it’s necessary for you to come in that day, you will absolutely be seen that day.
We will bring you in, we will give every single test we have available to figure out what is going on and what can we do to alleviate your pain. My patients, every one of my patients, gets my cell phone number. If you’ve had a procedure done, even if you’ve just shown up for one visit, everyone gets my cell phone number.
If they have any questions or concerns, I’m always available to talk. Patients call me on the weekends, late at night sometimes, I am not bothered by that. That is why I give out my cell phone. There shouldn’t be a time where you have a question and it can’t be answered by me.
Don’t hesitate to call if you are feeling strange or extreme pain in your tooth or mouth. Whether it is an infection, a large cavity, gum disease, or some other affliction, we will talk with you about it over the phone and schedule an appointment to see you as soon as we can. As a family dentistry, you can feel safe knowing that your family members are well taken care of and can be treated immediately after any type of accident or emergency.
One of the most common emergencies we treat are knocked-out teeth. If you or your child gets a tooth knocked out while playing sports or during another accident, try to recover the tooth and then call our Birmingham, MI office right away for a dental emergency appointment. If you find the tooth, rinse it off with warm water and try to place it back in its socket. If you cannot do so, place it in a cup or container and cover it with salt water or milk. Bring it to our office, and we will try to permanently place it back in your mouth. If you have broken a tooth, bring in the pieces, and we will work to repair the tooth and restore your smile.
We are Available at Any Time
After business hours, our phone will go directly to Dr. Newingham himself, so that he can talk with you about your problem and schedule a time to see you. Don’t hesitate to call us after working hours or on weekends. We are always ready to help you in your time of need.
