Emergency Services

Throughout the spread of COVID-19, your Prairieville dental office has been practicing strict sterilization protocols while we monitor the situation closely. 

As your emergency dentists during a pandemic, it is our responsibility to help patients manage pain and infection so we can keep them safe and away from emergency rooms. 

Go to Your Dentist If You Feel Tooth Pain

Dental pain is never a normal occurrence and is usually an indicator of decay, disease, infection, or trauma. Infections and disease can quickly spread to your other teeth if left untreated, and the pain will only continue to get worse. 

As your dental healthcare providers, we never want our patients to suffer or compromise their dental health.

If you are in pain or have a broken tooth, a knocked-out tooth, or other injuries to your mouth, please see us. Dentists all across the US can see their patients during the COVID-19 shut down if they have a dental emergency.
