Toothache During Coronavirus But Nothing Is Open

You might be wondering what to do. What you don’t want to do is go to the ER. They are overflowing with people who need urgent care and your ER doctor is not going to know what to do with you and your toothache. Although all dental offices were instructed to close during this COVID-19 pandemic until April 7, 2020, we are healthcare professionals that are available to you for emergencies. Dental offices are closed for elective and non-urgent care.
