Injuries happen, which is the reason why our skilled team of dentists provides emergency care at our practice in Moodus, CT. A few typical dental injuries include broken and chipped teeth, or teeth that have been knocked out. Incidents could be caused by chewing food that is too hard for your teeth to manage, an accident when playing sports, a bad spill, or a blunt-force trauma. You might or might not feel discomfort, but it is important to get your mouth assessed following an accident to look for any damage. At East Haddam Dental Associates, we'll consistently make your dental crisis a priority by offering fast care along with steps to protect against future issues.
"I have been a patient of East Haddam Dental for very many years. I have at all times been treated courteously and professionally. Dr. Stofko and now Dr. Goldman have tended to my teeth with a maximum of skill and a minimum of pain. Dr. Pear has also pitched in in their absence when I had an emergency that could not wait. I have never had an issue with the front desk staff. When I have a problem with a tooth they are always sympathetic and do their best to get me an early appointment to get it fixed. As for wait time, my experience is that I'm usually seated within a few minutes of my appointment. On those rare occasions where I did have to wait it was only for 15 minutes or so. I always figured the Doctor was backed up because someone needed extra help and I was just happy not to be that person. Needless to say I am pleased with the quality of care I've received and intend to stay with East Haddam Dental for the foreseeable future."- T.B. / Yelp / Jul 28, 2018

"I was changing my dentist and this was my first visit to East Haddam Dental Associates.I found all the people working there very pleasant and knowledgeable and Dr.Goldman was very nice.

"I love East Haddam Dental Associates so much, I’m not sure where to begin. Let’s start with the office staff; Always welcoming and friendly the staff makes me feel comfortable, just like I am at home. When I have appointments I usually arrive at least 45 minutes early simply because I like how the staff treats me. The lady behind the desk actually talks to me as if she likes me. Because 6 months between cleanings is so long, I try to stop by the office for a casual visit in between appointments, and even though they are surprised to see me they let me sit in the waiting room and just relax for a few minutes. The dentist, Dr. Goldman is always very nice and informative. I’m surprised by how much he knows about teeth and the dangers of tooth decay. I call him Josh because he also made me feel right at home and as if I was a friend. He provided excellent service and I will be coming here for all my future dental needs!"- S. / Google / May 27, 2021

Occasionally, you will require emergency attention (a restoration or tooth falls out, you're in pain, or have a cracked tooth). In other instances, you might be uncertain how fast you require treatment (as an example, a loose tooth or recovery, a injury that does not result in bleeding or pain, or a chip in a tooth). Whenever you have a trauma to your mouth, such as your gums, teeth, and jaw, it is ideal to speak to our office. Our dental team will be able to help you determine when to come in, discuss strategies to control pain, and also educate you on how to keep your tooth or dental restoration. Even seemingly small injuries may result in larger issues if not handled as soon as possible, therefore it's ideal to contact our office immediately.

After our team understands the degree of your problem, we will speak with you about your options and develop your treatment program. You might require one or a number of visits to restore your mouth.

We can give you a prescription for pain medication or antibiotics, which needs to be used as directed.
