What happens during an emergency appointment?

After filling out a detailed health history and registration forms, Dr. Codel will see you as soon as possible.

First, a detailed review of your health and dental history will be performed. This will be followed by a chance for you to describe the nature of your dental emergency. At that time any necessary x-rays will be taken to help diagnose your problem. Dr. Codel will perform an oral cancer screening exam and then evaluate the problem. Once a diagnosis has been reached, treatment options will be discussed. Every opportunity will be taken to resolve the problem. In some cases the solution may be temporary until definitive treatment can be performed in the future.
