Dental Emergency − Tulsa & Sand Springs OKDr. Justin Emami on helping a patient who is in pain or having discomfort Read Transcript
I see a lot of emergencies every single day. A lot of patients come to me and they're in pain. “Justin, I haven't been able to sleep at night. I've been kind of putting this off. I've been concerned about the pain is there but also the pain of coming to the dentist and the fear of coming to the dentist,“ we get it a ton. We get it so much. The wonderful thing about my training and all the experience that I've had with dealing with emergencies whether they're really big or they're really small. Small toothaches. Large infections. Or even the fear that hovers above getting anything done.
So many people walk through those doors. Once they're able to make that phone call, once they move forward, whenever they get in here, the experience that they have is nothing but spectacular because I have been trained specially to make sure I can take care of pain. Make sure that I can get people out of pain. And so whenever they come in we address it quickly. Emergencies are definitely one that I do not wait on. I want to make sure that we take care of and address any pain, any issues that patients are having and we address it quickly.
So whenever people come to us and they are in pain, they have tooth that's just been abscessing, a tooth that's been infected, a tooth that's been broken, we address it fast. We try our best to always make sure we can do same day treatment especially whenever pain is involved. It's something I definitely know if I was in pain I would want something done as quickly as possible so I would so whatever it takes to get myself out of pain.
I treat my patients just that way, the exact same way I would treat myself. The exact same way I would treat my family because they're family when they walk in and when my family's in pain, I want to get them out of pain as quickly as possible.
