Pediatric dental emergencies can be handled at Smiles4OC in Costa Mesa

Many parents in the Costa Mesa area and surrounding communities are often interested in learning about immediate dental care when needed, though many are unaware that the practice of Smiles4OC offers assistance for pediatric dental emergencies. Drs. Rolfes, Do, and Dunne of Smiles4OC are ready and willing to help parents who are unsure of how to handle a dental emergency that involves their child. Whether it’s a knocked out tooth, excessive bleeding, or a cracked tooth, our team can help.

Most pediatric dental emergencies involve trauma to the face and/or mouth. This may result in a broken tooth, knocked out tooth, or even a severe bite to the tongue, lip, or cheek. Other common concerns include cold sores, canker sores, objects stuck between the teeth, and toothaches. All of these issues require immediate evaluation and treatment by a quality dental team, and the group of Smiles4OC can provide this care and attention as necessary.

Drs. Rolfes, Do, and Dunne of Smiles4OC have a 24-hour call line for parents to contact if they are in need of dental assistance. Depending on the time of day, parents may be able to bring their child into the dental practice immediately or may be advised over the phone how to handle the situation until they can get into the office. In some cases, the dentist may prescribe medication for parents to use until they are able to get their child into the practice. This is often done for unexplained toothaches or pain that may still be around after an oral surgery procedure. In severe cases, patients may be advised to go to the nearest emergency room for immediate treatment if deemed appropriate by our dental team.

If you live in or around the Costa Mesa area and want to have a dental team on your side in the event of pediatric dental emergencies, contact Drs. Rolfes, Do, and Dunne of Smiles4OC today. We can educate patients on the comprehensive dental services we provide for patients of all ages, and can get families started in our dental practice so their x-rays and health notes are readily available in our files.

    Dr. Rolfes and the staff are amazing. My family has been patients here for over 25 years and we just love the office. All of the staff are genuine and caring. I highly recommend this quality family practice.
  • Dentist Costa Mesa -  Star Reviews by Alicia F. I have been to several dental offices in the past and have had many terrible experiences when it comes to my dental care. Every interaction during my visit was not only positive, but reassuring, which truly helped me overcome my fears and follow through with my check-up and cleaning. Dr. Dunne and Nicole were most thorough with my exam, explaining each step and giving individual focused care, Karen took her time to get my smile pretty and white again with my cleaning, and both Vicky and Gail provided excellent support and professionalism from the time I came in to the end of my visit. In summary, my visit to Smiles4OC surpassed expectations. For once, I'm not only not afraid to go to the dentist, but actually welcome the thought of visiting again in 6 months! Thank you, Smiles4OC!~ Alicia F.

  • Dentist Costa Mesa -  Star Reviews by Hallie C.C. Dr. Rolfes always takes great care of my teeth. My cleanings go very smoothly, I have extremely sensitive teeth and I love that is requested, the hygienist will add an extra numbing cream on my teeth to make sure I am comfortable during the cleaning. They really dig in there to make sure your smile is perfectly clean so I appreciate the extra comfort. Dr. Rolfes has always been a very honest dentist and recommends the best treatment to keep my teeth healthy. After having many bad experiences, including bad fillings, at other dental offices I fully trust his knowledge and skills. For many years, he has kept my smile bright white and healthy. You will not be disappointed!~ C.C.
  • Dentist Costa Mesa -  Star Reviews by Cyndi H. A breath of fresh air!! I had a dental emergency while my dentist was out of town. A friend of my recommended Dr. Rolfes to me, who ironically was also out of town! The office staff was so kind and told me to come right in. I had a very positive experience from the moment I arrived. I was quickly taken back to meet Dr. Do and her assistant. This entire office made an extremely uncomfortable experience a pleasant one!! Not only would I HIGHLY recommend their office, I am switching!! They can even see my children. I can not say enough good things about Dr. Do and her office!! ~ Cyndi H.
  • Dentist Costa Mesa -  Star Reviews by Tamara S. Dr. Do and every person I come in contact with at this office is amazing! This is a very kid-friendly office. I was very concerned how my 2 year old son (now 3 years old) was going to take going to the dentist. Dr. Do and her staff are all super friendly and great with kids. On my son's first visit, their focus was just to get him comfortable with being in the chair and the equipment. They let him ride in the chair up and down, pick out his animal toothbrush, flavored toothpaste, and of course pick out of the treasure box. Now my son on his 3rd visit could not wait to go see Dr. Do. He said ,"Please can we go see Dr. Do." They have gotten my rambunctious 3 year old to get x-rays and a full on teeth cleaning. I am really impressed with what they have been able to get son to do. I really believe everyone one in the office goes above and beyond to make our visits a wonderful experience. Definitely 5 stars! ~ Tamara S.
