Emergency Appointments

We recognize that many times it is not possible to anticipate needing our services. Many dental emergencies, especially toothaches, arise during the night. If you awake in pain or have an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you the following weekday. If your dentist is unavailable, please call our office between 8:30 and 10:30 am in order to make an emergency appointment.

If you have a new dental emergency over the weekend, such as a loose filling or toothache, please call your dentist first. Usually, definitive dental care is not available after hours and on weekends for routine dental problems due to facility and staffing availability. Your local hospital emergency room can usually prescribe medication (after seeing you for evaluation) to keep you comfortable until your dentist can see you.

All patients of Dr. Mahar’s with postoperative problems or concerns will be able to speak with a staff member directly, during office hours. Information regarding how to contact Dr. Mahar will be given in your postoperative instruction packet.
