What should I do in a dental emergency?

At Lake City Way Dental Center, we understand that injury and trauma to your teeth and gums can be frightening and stressful. That is why we are here as a dental team to help you and your family through any dental emergency. Led by Dr. Obiora E. Nkwonta, our compassionate dentist, we can treat patients of all ages and facing any dental emergency. While we strive to offer fast, effective care, we encourage all of our patients who have experienced head or neck trauma to first visit the emergency room or make an appointment with your doctor. Once your health has been assured, we are here to help in any dental emergency.
