Rob Smith, DDS
Fresno, CA 93710
About The Office
Dr. Smith is one of a handful of general dentists in Fresno trained and certified to perform intravenous sedation dentistry. Dr. Smith has found that IV sedation is far more effective than oral sedation at calming the fears of his patients and allowing them to get the work that they need done. We see patients every day who have had a bad dental experience and have avoided the dental office for years, even since their childhood due to fear. We understand this and want you to have a positive dental experience. Call our office and talk with Melissa. She will listen to your cares and concerns and answer any questions that you might have. She understands–she fears dental work just as much as you do.
How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in FresnoOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
Fresno has around 400 dentists2 to cater to a population of 522,000. The same as everywhere else in the state of California, that’s a very high number. Even though it’s not too difficult to locate a dentist near you, it will surely be difficult to schedule a same day appointment when you’re facing a dental emergency. Dental emergencies can constitute more than a few conditions. Some of them are a knocked out tooth, a chipped or fractured tooth, a broken or lost crown, a tooth infection, or bleeding gums. Even if you have a jaw fracture or facial swelling, you should seek out an emergency dentist, and if you’re unsure where to find one, call us.
Unlike websites such as Google and Yelp, we will take a more direct approach when it comes to locating a dentist and scheduling an appointment for you. We are working closely with many dental offices in Fresno, and that cooperation gives us access to their appointment books. That means if you call us, we don’t have to call the dentist in return, but we can directly schedule an appointment for you. What makes our service even better is that it’s completely free. Any phone call directed to our US based call center will result in you having a scheduled appointment with an emergency dentist near you in less than three minutes.
A research done by McKinsey & Company shows that around 35% of Californians haven’t had a dental visit in the last 12 months3. Brushing and flossing your teeth every day after meals isn’t enough to keep your dental health is good condition. Dental visits are not just for when you have a toothache. You should go to the dentist every six months for a regular checkup and a cleaning. This will help the dentist discover any problems you might have before he needs to perform a costly procedure on you. Out of those 35% of people that haven’t been to the dentist in a year, 62% said that the cost was the main reason, according to the American Dental Association4. If you discover a cavity early, you might simply need a filling, instead of getting a root canal treatment or having to install a crown.
Things to know before your emergency dentist appointmentPreparing for your emergency dental visit will help minimize anxiety and reduce the overall time you will have to spend at the dentist office.
If you have scheduled your emergency dentist appointment through us, then you shouldn’t worry about any mistakes. However, if you do it yourself, either by calling the office, or through another website, we advise you to double check and call the dentist office at least 24 hours prior to the appointment. Like this you will make sure that no mistakes were made. If you’re a new patient, transfer your dental records to the dentist. You can ask your old dentist to give you a copy of the dental records, which you can automatically forward to the new one. It helps if the dentist can see your dental history before your scheduled appointment. If you are a current patient, tell your dentist about any changes to your dental health since your last visit. That includes any sudden pain, sensitivity to hot or cold, or even if you’re pregnant. You should also inform him of any changes you’ve made to your diet, medication and supplements you’re taking.
Before you show up for your appointment, make up your mind on how you want to pay for the service, and be sure to call the dentist office to ask them about it. It’s very easy to arrange payments, especially because most offices are more than willing to help you. They can offer financing on approved credit, or may even have internal payment plans. If you call us, we can find a dentist near you that offers help with financing.
We can help you locate a dentist that uses sedation if you’re suffering from dental anxiety. If you’re scheduling the appointment yourself, make sure to tell the dentist before your appointment or before your treatment starts. The dentist can be helpful if he knows you are feeling anxious. He can give you more breaks during the procedure, and even guide you through the whole process so you always know what’s happening. Try to distract yourself from the procedure by either bringing headphones and listening to music, or holding on to something, such as a stress relief ball.
Get a walk-in emergency dentist appointment todayCall us to schedule you an appointment with an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
Dentists are mostly working by appointment only these days. There are less and less dentists that accepts walk-in and we support their opinion. There are many reasons for it, one of them being that dentists have very busy schedules and walk-ins can often cause trouble for them. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, and the dentist turns you away, they risk getting bad reviews. On the other hand, if they accept a walk-in, they will have to either cancel someone’s appointment, or postpone multiple ones. In return, they risk bad reviews from those patients. Either way, you’re putting the dentist in a bad situation.
There is a much better way for you to get to an emergency dentist than trying to get a walk-in. By calling us, you are eliminating the chances of a dentist turning you away. If you are in need of an emergency dentist, we can make a same day appointment for you. There is no need to be worried about the dentist being in network with your insurance, or if the dentist will accept your form of payment. Tell us on the phone about your insurance situation, and we will make sure you see a suitable dentist.
In case your crown fell out or was chipped, we can locate an emergency dentist near you that can make a same day CEREC crown. These crowns are the same price as traditional dental crowns, but made with newest technology. Their biggest advantage is that they can be produced and installed on the same day, requiring you to have only one visit to the dentist. You will have to go to the dentist at least twice for traditional dental crowns, because you will need temporary ones installed first, before your real ones are manufactured. Both of these crowns are about the same price, but CEREC crowns have longer longevity.
Top emergency dentist procedures in FresnoLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
One of the most sought after emergency procedures in Fresno is a chipped or a lost crown. If a crown falls out, it means it doesn’t fit the tooth perfectly anymore. It is probably because the tooth under the crown is damaged. Your tooth might be very sensitive after your crown falls out, so it’s necessary to get to a dentist as soon as possible. Another reason to see a dentist quickly is that you don’t want the underlying tooth to get damaged even more. Don’t throw away the crown that fell out. The dentist may be able to reattach it if it still fits. If not, he will make a new one, even on the same day if you choose a CEREC crown instead of a traditional dental crown.
We can help you find a dentist for an emergency procedure even if it’s on a weekend. A research done by the American Dental Association showed that only 4% of dentists in the US work on Sundays, and 45% work on Saturdays5. This is why it might be difficult for you to find a dentist during off hours. If you call us at night, on a weekend, or even on a holiday, our dental referral specialists will answer your call and immediately schedule you an appointment with a dentist near you. Even if no dentist offices near you are open at the time of your call, we have access to dentists’ appointment books, so we can make sure that your appointment is the first thing in the morning.
