About Emergency Dental Care
Our family-owned Long Beach dental practice understands that emergencies can arise at any time, which is why we work earnestly to provide same-day emergency care to our patients. Dental issues such as a severe toothache, fractured, or lost tooth typically need immediate care and relief. If patients are in need of immediate dental care, they can call our office as soon as possible. Patients should be sure to communicate that they are in need of same-day emergency care, and we will do our best to get them in at the first available time. To assist the discomfort in the mean time, our office can provide short-term relief tips that may help. Please note that if patients have chipped a tooth that they should save all pieces if possible.
"My family and I have been going to Emigh Dental Care for years. EVERYONE is very courteous, helpful, and professional. All their equipment is state of the art. I have had terrific Dr. Bob and Dr. Pat as my dentists. My son schedules his appointments with Dr. Todd -- who he thinks is great! Yesterday I was introduced to Dr. Le. She is a wonderful addition to the Team!! I can't say enough about my super hygienist, Andrea! Emigh Dental Care is the whole package!!!!"- A.D. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2018
"Best dentists we have ever had. Our whole family goes there. My 7 year old daughter was petrified of the dentist after a bad experience with another dentist. We switched to the Dr. Emighs and now she is 9 years old and looks forward to going. Tammy is her favorite, but Jade and everyone is fantastic!!"- T.M. / Yelp / Apr 24, 2018

"Broke a veneer recently & made an appt. @ Emigh Dental based on all the positive reviews - the reviews don't lie - this office is great & Dr. Todd is just the best! Ended up having him replace all 6 of my prior veneers + do 2 more. The difference between my 'old' (if 7 years is old) & new veneers is like night & day! Huge relief to have found such a talented dentist - HIGHLY recommended!"- J.L. / Yelp / Apr 21, 2018
"Been coming here for 40 years. Excellent care, Staff are always welcoming with smiles. It's not just a dental office , it's like visiting family . Not only has my family had the pleasure of being cared for my Dr. Robert Emigh, now we have the pleasure of being cared for by his two sons Dr. Pat and Dr. Todd to carry on the family tradition. What a wonderful blessing they all are, to all of us to take such good care of us. You can always get an emergency appointment and get in immediately to be cared for. Thank you for continuous Service."- D.P. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2018
What to Expect
If patients are calling for emergency care during normal office hours, our practice will be sure to do our best in getting them in as soon as possible. However, for after-hour emergency dental care, patients should seek immediate care at the nearest ER. We recommend that patients still call our office to leave a detailed message about their emergency. Once our practice opens the next morning, our staff will contact our dentists to inform them of the issue to get the patient in for an early exam. Our dentists will then be able to examine the condition and prepare for emergency treatment if it's still necessary.
Usually after an emergency appointment, a follow-up exam will be set up to check on the condition. During this time, our dentists will be able to determine if additional work is required. Our top-priority is to ensure that patients receive the best treatment and care possible that will bring immediate and safe results. Our dentists will also provide important aftercare instructions that will assist in optimal healing and will help to better improve their discomfort.
