In compliance with state government orders and the expert recommendations of the ADA and CDC, we are restricting patient visits to urgent or emergency care only through April. In the event of a dental emergency, contact our office at 208-461-6000 and someone will assist you. Please do NOT go to the emergency room — call our office first.

If you have an appointment for routine care during this time (such as an exam or a cleaning), we will be contacting you to reschedule once we know when normal operations can be resumed.

What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?

Conditions that qualify for urgent dental care include:

  • Severe pain in teeth or gums
  • Swelling of your gums, face, or neck
  • Bleeding in your mouth that does not stop
  • Abscess or infection
  • Trauma (such as a broken tooth or jaw)
  • An evulsed tooth (a permanent tooth that has been knocked out through trauma)

We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We are serving you in the safest manner possible by following the advice of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In doing this, we will safeguard the health of our patients, our care providers, and the whole community. We hope you understand and we thank you for your cooperation.
