Emergency Dentist Appointment Booking & Teledentistry in Ontario
Immediate teledentistry care & rapid access to local in-person Emergency Dental appointments province wide.
ALL EMERGENCY DENTAL PATIENTS: PLEASE READ
Using our network of RCDSO licensed dentists, we are currently providing fast expedited local in-office emergency dental appointments to patients who need them all across Ontario.
All patients are required to speak with one of our dentists through online video consultation for assessment and triage prior to being given an in-person appointment if required. This speeds up the process of finding a dentist, booking an appointment and treating emergency situations. It also helps avoid unnecessary visits to a dental clinic, helping keep everyone safe.
Teledentistry consultation is available right away and it only takes a few minutes to book a subsequent in-office appointment for urgent emergency cases.
Our dentists are able to quickly assess the situation, deliver immediate care (guidance or medical prescriptions) and provide rapid in-office emergency appointments to patients who need help now.
Emergency patients can book an in-office appointment with a dentist near them in as little as 10 minutes by using our Teledentistry triage and booking service.

Emergency Teledentistry can help right away.
We all know that an accident can happen at any time and it can often be an overwhelming experience. Whether it’s a toothache, swollen gums, a broken or knocked out tooth, facial lacerations or oral pain – you need professional help immediately. The longer you wait the worse your symptoms may get and the more difficult treatment can become. While not a like-for-like substitute for an in-person appointment, speaking with a dentist virtually in a video consultation can help facilitate eventual diagnosis and treatment. Dental emergencies in Ontario can not only be triaged through teledentistry, but the problem can sometimes be solved with a prescription from one of the dentists through teledentistry. In many cases all that’s required is a professional diagnosis determining what’s wrong, how severe the problem is and what steps need to be taken to correct the issue. Hopefully all that’s necessary is treatment advice or a medical prescription, but if further assistance is required teledentistry is the fastest way to get an emergency dentist appointment in your area because you avoid the hassle of having to search for a dental office that’s open and available to help – we do the searching for you.
Rapid emergency dental assistance when you need it most.
If you’ve ever needed immediate assistance during a dental emergency, then you’ll know how frustrating it can be to find a dentist that’s available to help quickly. This is especially true right now, as COVID-19 restrictions have made visiting a dentist much more difficult. That’s why using a emergency teledentistry service is highly suggested and provides an easier route to professional care (including in-person appointments). Ontario emergency teledental enables you to get face-to-face with a licensed dentist quickly and get the help with your emergency. After submitting our intake form you will be immediately contacted to get registered and an appointment for a live video consultation with a licensed dentist will be arranged right away. This process is similar to being triaged at the emergency room of a hospital, but faster, easier and without the need to leave your home. During your online consultation, you will receive advice or diagnosis as to what the problem is and how to best deal with it. You may also receive medical prescriptions without visiting a dentist, and if needed, an appointment with a local emergency dentist that’s open will be quickly arranged.
Get medical prescriptions without visiting a dentist.
If after consulting with a virtual dentist it is determined that you need a medical prescription, your emergency dentist is able to provide one immediately. This not only saves time, money and hassle but gets you treatment sooner. Your teledentist can also provide detailed instructions on how to use any prescribed medications and explain your home care options if applicable. Being able to get a prescription from a licensed dentist via video chat is a useful benefit of our teledentistry service, especially during the current COVID-19 restrictions, when social distancing makes it difficult to visit a dental clinic in-person.
It’s easy to consult with an emergency dentist online.
Dental emergencies don’t make appointments and they don’t wait if you’re busy. No matter what you’re doing or where you are when an dental emergency happens, it’s important to consult with a licensed dentist as quickly as possible. That’s why using a teledentistry service during an emergency can get you the care you need right away. There is no need to visit a dentist office if it’s not necessary and our appointments are as flexible as it gets.

All you need is a smartphone, tablet or other camera equipped device and you can get professional dental care at a moments notice from wherever you are.

What is emergency teledentistry?

Our team consists of professional dentists from all over the province who operate dental clinics themselves and are now also providing teledental help to patients in need.

Can I visit an emergency dentist during COVID-19 restrictions?
Patients experiencing a dental emergency or an oral health concern that requires immediate attention are able to visit a dentist that is open and operating under strict patient safety guidelines as outlined by the RCDSO. However, the RCDSO has recommended that all emergency dentists provide and use a teledentistry service as triage for patients requesting an emergency appointment (similar to the intake procedure at a hospital emergency room). This is part of an effort to effectively examine and triage patients remotely, without the need for close proximity interaction, before providing in-person emergency appointments at a dental clinic. This helps reduce the number of appointments, keeps waiting rooms empty and helps everyone remain safe while being able to provide urgent emergency dental care.
