  • If your child has sustained a head injury, fracture to the jaw or other bodily injury, or he/she needs immediate medical attention you should visit your nearest emergency department.  Keep in mind that it may be quicker for help to arrive to you; in such cases, call 911.
  • For non-life threatening emergencies, during office hours, call our office at 646-558-6058 to inform us of the nature of the emergency so that we may prepare for your visit (such as dental trauma, toothache, swelling, etc.).
  • For after-hours questions regarding a dental emergency, you may leave a message for one of our three doctors. Please keep in mind these numbers are NOT intended for emergencies requiring immediate attention or for purposes other than dental-related questions. Please do not expect to receive an immediate response, but the doctors will do their best to respond ASAP. Please leave a detailed message regarding the nature of your call.
