A: Call our office immediately: 619-435-6655. We are on call and prepared to help, even outside of normal business hours. If the situation allows, take a cell phone photo of the injury as it can be very helpful for the doctor’s remote diagnosis (can also be done after initial call is placed). For more information about specific injuries, please see “Dental Emergencies” under our “Services” drop-down menu.
Most importantly, if your child shows any sign of altered or loss of consciousness as a result of a head trauma, contact your pediatrician immediately or go to your local emergency room.
