Find an Emergency Dental Clinic

If your child has a dental emergency that requires immediate medical attention, you should call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

If your child is a Kool Smiles patient, and the emergency happens during business hours, bring your child directly to the office—no appointment necessary. However, you should call the office before you come so they know to expect you.

If your emergency occurs after business hours, call (855) 854-3621 and we’ll direct you to an on-call doctor. 

If your child is not a Kool Smiles patient and has a dental emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital ER.

Does My Child Need an Emergency Dentist?

There are many different reasons kids may need emergency dental care. Some common reasons for emergency dental visits include:

  • Broken or knocked out teeth
  • Bad cuts or bites inside the mouth that won’t stop bleeding
  • Painful and serious mouth and tooth infections
  • Lost fillings
  • Lost crowns
