Dental Emergencies

When You Need Us, We Are There for You!

Accidents happen, but they can sure be scary! If your child experiences an accident, please call Noor A Shamim DMD as soon as possible.
 
The first 30 minutes of any accident are often the most critical, especially where dental care is concerned. So, call right away!

After-Hours Emergency Care Available

Emergencies rarely ever keep regular office hours. For that reason, we provide a pager / cell phone number on our answering line. You are welcome to call our emergency number to speak with someone right away.
