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.
"The front staff at Emigh Dental Care is very friendly and welcoming. There's even water and apple juice while you wait. The waiting room is open and comfy! There's also ample parking in the parking structure! I had my first examination with Dr. Reel today. She was warm, open and friendly! Freddy, the DA escorted me back to the exam room and explained everything thoroughly. I did share that I was worried about my teeth because I haven't had dental care in about 3 years (no dental insurance). After 3 years with no dental care, I have just 1 cavity. After seeing Dr. Reel, Freddy took me to see hygienist, Tammy. Like Dr. Reel, Tammy was warm and friendly. She explained all the things that were to come for my cleaning and the importance of flossing. On 9/17 my 2 year old son and husband saw Dr. Todd. Dr. Todd thoroughly answered all our questions re: jaw surgery for my husband and referred him to an orthodontist. Although my 2 year old son didn't cooperate by opening his mouth, Dr. Todd was able to entertain and make my son feel comfortable. Maybe next time, Dr. Todd will get to take a look at my son's teeth. I look forward to getting my cavity fixed and my next cleaning. Thanks Emigh Dental Care!"- N.S. / Yelp / Sep 21, 2018
"I highly recommend Emigh Dental. I have been coming to this office my entire life as well as most of my family and extended family. The entire staff is amazing.

"This place truly knows the meaning of customer service, I'm very impressed by the professionalism of the staff. I'm a new client and had to have a filling replaced that had fallen out of one of my back molars. I had an issue at my first visit, the first time they tried to refill it (it took two tries in the office) and then it fell out again, about an hour after I got home. When I came back to get it refilled again, I was not comfortable having the same dentist working on it because she had trouble getting it right the first time. I asked to see someone else. When I came back I was taken care of by Dr. Todd. He was very pleasant and made me feel at ease as soon as I arrived. He's an extremely caring person and more than qualified to fix this hard to fill filling. He not only fixed my tooth but he reassured me that the other dentist was also more than qualified to help me, but that he wanted to make sure I felt comfortable with the service I received. I absolutely love this place and how they treated me, they never made me feel weird for asking for another dentist to fix the issue. If you are searching for excellent dentists who provide impeccable care in a clean and friendly environment with a staff that really values the concept of customer service, I highly recommend the good people at Emigh Dental Care. I like them so much that I referred my fiancé to them too. Try Emigh Dental Care, you will not be disappointed."- S.V. / Yelp / Sep 13, 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.
