All efforts will be made to see patients who telephone us with dental emergencies ASAP. However, due to our inability to accurately diagnose the severity of a problem over the telephone and time constraints due to scheduled appointments, patients are only guaranteed an emergency consultation/exam with Dr. Stamas. If time permits, treatment may be started. However, under most circumstances a future appointment will be scheduled to complete your dental care. There will be a charge for this emergency consultation in addition to the charge for the treatment rendered. In the event of an emergency occurring after hours, Dr. Stamas may be paged by calling the office number. This service is available to all patients of record in the office only.
