Emergency Appointments. Immediate attention for patients in need.

As life often dictates, unexpected emergencies often pop-up when we least expect them to. We understand that tooth ache can become unbearable and alleviating your pain is a matter of priority to us. Something as simple as a toothache, left untreated, can lead to infections travelling through the bloodstream and causing a host of other issues. If one of your teeth becomes chipped or broken, or you are experiencing toothache, swelling, pain or bleeding – emergency dental treatment may be required.

About Emergency Appointments at Drouin Dental.

At Drouin Dental, if you are in pain we will see you on the same day through our Emergency Appointment Guarantee. Emergency patients are treated at short notice as a matter of priority, whether you are an existing or new patient at our clinic.
