Dental emergencies tend to pop up when you’re least prepared. It might be on the weekend, at the end of the day when the dentist’s office is closed, or when you’re out of town on vacation. Right now, when most Marietta dentists are forced to close due to “social distancing” during COVID-19, you may be wondering if it’s possible to see an emergency dentist at all.
Here’s the good news: Marietta dentists can provide emergency treatment and other essential services during the coronavirus pandemic. But here’s the catch: They may not look like they’re open during traditional business hours.

But in order for us to treat you as soon as possible, you’ll need to call our office and follow the prompts. Your call will be put through to a staff member or you may need to leave a message, but one of us will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
