Rafael H.
I was very impressed with my experience. Hilda and Dr.Nathan made my visit very comfortable. They did a amazing job with my crowns. I would recommend this office for any future dental treatment .
Jennifer R.
Great work professionally done. They were able to fit my son in on a holiday weekend for 2 broken teeth. He was very happy with the work done and has already made another appointment.
Hung L.
Their payment plan is definitely a money saver. I can get all my services done at once and pay an affordable amount monthly. I love how they use a paperless process, took me less than 10 minutes. I’m so happy with the result.
Duyên V.
I had never been to the dentist before and never thought I would need to go to the dentist until I got a toothache late evening around 5 PM. I called everywhere and most of them close on Saturday or they are not taking any patients after 5 pm. But I called this office, the front desk answered very fast and they said they were willing to stay back for me. I got my tooth extracted and deep cleaning done right away and feel so much better. A 5-star to me!
Ian McKamey
Very patient focused experience. They aren’t just just trying to push you through as fast as possible. They listen and care. Entire staff is friendly. Great experience with Celene Pham. If I could give 6 stars I would.
Jackson C.
Heard a lot of compliments about this place so I gave it a try to get my root canal and crown done, surprisingly it is painless and so comfortable by using nitrous gas. The place is clean and neat, smell good. The staff is so friendly, we talk the whole time during the process. Highly recommended.
Hilda D.
Such a fantastic place! The office is impeccably clean and well-organized. Dr. Pham is incredibly kind and made me feel genuinely welcome, greatly enhancing my overall experience at the dental office. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a comfortable and pleasant visit.
Tử Á.
My visit to HWY6 Family Dentistry far exceeded my expectations. Both Dr. Pham and Dr. Nguyen provided top-notch dental care. Their meticulous examination and in-depth explanation about my wisdom and impacted teeth reassured me about the treatment plan.
Sufera S.
I feel so welcome and taken care of at Highway six family dentistry. The staff greeted me with a warm smile and answered all of my inquiries. It is evident to me that they have the patient’s best interest at heart. I will definitely be back for my future dental care needs. I have also recommended my friends and family to come here and they have also had a pleasant experience!
Proceso A.
They said going to the dentist is a pain. But not here. All the staff are nice and very attentive, Doctor is very gentle and the experience here is all positive, move from Chicago to Houston and I was worry to get a good dentist but I found this place to be the best that I ever had in the past. Highly recommended. If it was more room to give more stars this place deserves double the stars.
Nghi T.
HWY6 Family Dentistry is top-notch. We visited for my brother's braces, and the friendly staff immediately welcomed us. Dr. Alex Nguyen, a skilled and caring professional, recommended the best procedure for him.
Jose A.
I recently visited HWY 6 for braces. The process was rather quick and organized. Dr Nguyen explained every step of the process in very good detail, and her and her assistant Lydia were excellent in carrying it through. They worked with my income and provided me with a good and affordable payment plan that let me get my braces. I am very satisfied and highly recommend this office if you’re looking for a dentist or looking to change dentists.

RecognizingDental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can occur at any time and can range from mild discomfort to severe pain. Common types of dental emergencies include:

  • Toothaches: Often a sign of an underlying issue like decay or infection.
  • Chipped or Broken Teeth: Can result from an injury or biting down on something hard.
  • Knocked-out Teeth: Immediate action can increase the chances of saving the tooth.
  • Lost Fillings or Crowns: Leaving the underlying tooth exposed and sensitive.
  • Abscesses and Infections: Can be serious and should be addressed immediately.
  • Gum Injuries: Cuts or lacerations to the gums can lead to infection.

What to Do in a Dental Emergency

In a dental emergency, taking the right steps can make a significant difference in the outcome:

  • Stay Calm: Panicking can worsen the situation.
  • Assess the Situation: Determine the severity of the injury.
  • Protect the Tooth/Teeth: For a knocked-out tooth, rinse it and try to place it back in the socket or keep it moist.
  • Manage Pain and Swelling: Apply a cold compress and take over-the-counter pain relief if necessary.
  • Contact Us Immediately: The sooner you get professional dental care, the better the chances of a favorable outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions

How quickly can I be seen in a dental emergency?

We strive to see emergency patients as quickly as possible, often on the same day. Call us immediately for the earliest available appointment.

What if my emergency occurs outside of normal business hours?

We offer emergency contact options for after-hours situations. Your call will be directed to a team member who can advise you on the best course of action.

Are emergency dental treatments covered by insurance?

Many dental insurance plans cover emergency treatments, but coverage can vary. We will work with you to understand your benefits and discuss payment options.

Can all types of dental emergencies be treated at your office?

We are equipped to handle most dental emergencies. In cases where specialized care is needed, we will provide or recommend appropriate referrals.

Should I go to the hospital ER for a dental emergency?

For most dental emergencies, it's best to visit a dentist directly. However, if you have severe trauma, heavy bleeding, or swelling that affects breathing or swallowing, seek immediate hospital emergency care.

Can a toothache be considered a dental emergency?

Yes, a severe toothache can be a sign of a dental emergency, especially if accompanied by swelling, fever, or signs of infection. It's important not to ignore intense or persistent tooth pain, as it can indicate an underlying issue that requires immediate attention.

What should I do if I have a dental emergency while traveling?

If you experience a dental emergency while traveling, it's recommended to seek immediate local dental care for urgent issues. For less severe cases, you may manage discomfort with over-the-counter pain relievers and contact us for guidance or an appointment upon your return.

How can I prevent dental emergencies?

While not all dental emergencies can be prevented, maintaining good oral hygiene, wearing protective mouthguards during sports, avoiding chewing hard objects (like ice or hard candy), and keeping up with regular dental check-ups can significantly reduce the risk of dental emergencies.
