How to Keep Your Patients Out of the Emergency Room
On average, a trip to the ER takes longer than 4 hours and costs over $1,000. In light of these numbers, dentists can and should do more to keep their patients out of the emergency room. This is especially true considering that patients who visit the ER with a dental emergency are later sent to their dentist for follow-up restorative care anyway.
A dental emergency is a legitimate reason to worry, but patients can avoid the hassle and cost of an ER visit if dentists take just a couple simple steps.
