Dr. Gallagher On Call for Dental Emergencies

We are on call at West Park Dental after hours for emergencies. One new emergency patient was in town to give a talk at a conference, and while at the meeting he developed a toothache and was afraid it was so severe that it would prevent him from giving his presentation. One of the conference directors was a patient of mine and he called me and asked if I could see this man and get him out of pain. This was on a Friday afternoon and we got the patient into the office at about 6:00 p.m. We took care of the toothache, made sure he would be comfortable and he proceeded to give the lecture the next day. It was wonderful to be able to help out and provide care so quickly for this patient.

Another new emergency patient was in town with the Moscow Ballet as one of the chief ballerinas. She had a fractured tooth and would be giving a performance that same night. It was on a Saturday when a ballet staff member called us and asked us to help this ballerina. We took care of the ballerina’s tooth, and she went on to finish her performance that night. It was a great feeling to provide care for her when she needed it. The treatment we provided benefited the patient and the audience which was able to enjoy her performance that evening.

In addition to being available for emergencies, we are also more than willing to talk to patients by phone after hours as needed. We want to make sure that we answer all questions and of course we want to make sure that we can take care of patients who are having dental discomfort. We make it very easy for patients to contact us whenever they need us, including evenings and weekends.

Dr. Gallagher Says Patients Can Keep Teeth for a Lifetime

Some patients think that losing teeth is a natural part of the aging process. The myth goes back to the Middle Ages when there was no dental health care or an understanding of proper oral hygiene. When a tooth became problematic, the only option was to take it out.
