Emergency Pediatric Dentistry in Hurst, TX

Spend ten minutes at a playground, and there's a good chance that you'll see a child running and falling. What comes next? Lots of tears and, all too often, a broken or lost tooth.

Unfortunately, dental injuries are a part of life, but we are here to help. Hurst Pediatric Dentistry offers emergency care for children throughout the area. We understand that dental emergencies require immediate attention. We do our best to get your child into our office for an appointment quickly to give your child’s tooth the proper care it deserves.

Often when children suffer dental injuries, they feel scared or anxious. Our dentist, Dr. Lin, takes a gentle, kind approach. He has worked with many kids in emergency situations, and he knows the importance of presenting a calm demeanor to help kids feel comfortable and relaxed so that they can receive the treatment they need.

What to Do in a Pediatric Dental Emergency

If a dental injury occurs in conjunction with other medical or bone injuries, medical care should generally be prioritized over dental care. Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room if your child experiences any of the following:

  • Loss of consciousness.
  • Confusion/disorientation.
  • Nausea or vomiting.
  • Uncontrolled bleeding.

If your child does not exhibit those symptoms, then call our office right away to schedule your emergency children's dentist appointment. Do your best to stay calm, since children can often sense the emotions of others and may feel upset and panicked if they sense you are worried.

For your reference, we have provided some tips for how to deal with various dental emergencies in the “Dental Emergency Frequently Asked Questions” section below.

Why Select a Pediatric Dentist for an Emergency Case?

In contrast to family dentists and other general dentists, pediatric dentists are dental specialists who are required to complete additional years of training after dental school. This additional training includes instruction in emergency pediatric oral and facial trauma management. When you choose a pediatric dentist, you can trust that you are choosing someone with experience in handling pediatric dental emergency cases.

If your child has had a tooth knocked out or is experiencing any other type of dental emergency, time is of the essence. Visiting a dentist who is experienced at handling pediatric dental emergency cases can have an enormous impact on the success of your child’s treatment.

Dr. Lin completed his pediatric dental residency training at Boston Children’s Hospital, the number one pediatric hospital in the nation. There, he gained extensive experience working on complex trauma cases, including many cases involving coordination with multiple types of specialists. He has been specially trained to work with children to keep them calm, provide emergency pediatric treatments and coordinate with other doctors as necessary to ensure that his patients receive the best emergency care possible.

Dr. Lin is a godsend. He's incredible with kids and so good at calming them as they face "the chair". So kind, so patient...he even sings to them! The hygienists and office staff are very friendly and fantastic with children as well. Can't imagine a more ideal place for young ones to get their teeth (and their hearts!) cared for.

I recently had the pleasure of taking my 3 years old baby to Hurst Pediatric Dentistry, and I couldn't be more impressed with the level of care and professionalism we received. The staff were incredibly warm and welcoming. Once inside, Dr. Lin and his assistant, Ashley, were fantastic with my baby. They were patient, gentle, and made sure my child felt comfortable throughout the entire appointment. I highly recommend Hurst Pediatric Dentistry to any parent looking for a dentist who truly cares about their little patients.

I don’t have enough adjectives to describe how amazing this place is! As an adult who has past dental trauma, I prayed for a better experience for my daughter and I found it here. Dr. Lin was patient and easy-going with my daughter who can be quite stubborn. He made both of us so at ease and was so thorough. The entire experience from walking in to walking out was amazing. Kudos to the entire team and doctor. Can’t wait for her next appointment!

Dr. Lin and staff are the best!My daughter had to have 4 baby teeth removed. They went above and beyond making her feel comfortable. My daughter couldn't even feel them being extracted. Everyone is so patient and nice! The best pediatric dentist ever! They have cool prizes for the end of the visit and movies to help kids stay occupied during the cleaning.We've been coming here for over 2 years. They always get us seated right away and are fast and efficient. Definitely recommend!
