Dental emergencies occur in unlikely places and at unlikely times. We want to make sure you receive the emergency dental care you need when you need it.

When to call 9-1-1

If you feel you have a life-threatening emergency, including but not limited to difficulty breathing, excessive bleeding, difficulty swallowing, or swelling into the neck, please call 911 or visit your nearest hospital emergency department.

When to call us at 253.525.4050

If your emergency is not life threatening, call our office line so we can assess your situation and quickly find a solution for you. Our goal is to get you in to have your problem addressed the same day, if needed. If we are away from the office, leave a detailed voicemail and someone from our office will call you back shortly. In the event Dr. Duffy is out of town or unable to care for you, we have several other doctors we have a close working relationship with who are happy to take care of you during your emergency.
