About Emergency Dental Care
At Beachwood Dental, our patient's needs and care are our top priorities. In certain cases, same day emergency care may be required if a patient is suffering from severe tooth pain, a broken tooth, crown displacements, or other conditions that require immediate attention. Our dentists strive to provide prompt, same-day care for patients who are unable to wait for regular business hours. We encourage our patients suffering from an emergency to call our main office in Los Alamitos, CA and state their condition as an emergency. Our helpful medical personnel will give further directions and encourage you to seek attention during our operating hours. If patients are unable to reach our office, then we encourage them to visit their nearest emergency room to acquire immediate care.
"Anyone who is hesitant about these five stars review, HAVE NO FEAR. I would 10/10 recommend this clinic to ANYONE who asks (or doesn't). I was in town for my wedding and I visited my dentist in the area to get my final Invisalign check/retainers. I also wanted to straighten out my front tooth because it had chipped in the Invisalign process since I used to bite my nails. It made me super self conscious especially since I was going to be taking a ton of photos for my wedding this weekend and it had been bothering me since I got my attachments taken off. I had asked my dental clinic if they could even it out, but the dentist was not in so they weren't able to do anything for me... I was definitely 110% freaking out and so so sad. My dental office referred me to Beachwood Dental and Dr. Todd answered the phone. He so willingly accepted me last minute and really tried to work around my hectic schedule. I was late since I was running last minute errands and didn't expect them to take me so quickly (I called Thursday early afternoon, they told me to come in later that afternoon!). They were still able to fit me in with such warm attitudes and smiles. Dr. Todd, Stacy, and everyone in the office were so lovely, really (& I definitely don't say that lightly). They were able to fix me up (I couldn't even tell the difference!!!) and sent me on my way. I am forever thankful to this awesome team and appreciate you all (even if Dr. Todd is a USC fan...GO BRUINS). Thank you, Beachwood Dental!!!!"- H.S. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018

"Love love BeachWood dental!! I finally have a dental family that I can call home for all mine and my husbands needs. The dentists and staff are so friendly and welcoming. They’re even calming and comforting for people like me who get nervous when I go in. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great dentist!! JullieG~"- J.G. / Google / Aug 18, 2018
"The hygienist only uses the "Scraponater" (the ultrasonic tooth cleaner/scraper) on the heavy deposits not for the whole cleaning job. That thing feels like I'm scraping my teeth on a blackboard. The cleaning job is almost always done completely by hand. Then there is the digital X-Ray machine. Precious little radiation compared to the regular kind and the view is almost 3D. Teeth all bright and shiny, quick and painless. What more can you ask for?"- D.K. / Yelp / Aug 18, 2018
What to Expect
For after-hours emergency dental care, a patient should call our office and leave a message with our answering service. Most emergencies can be taken care of with a prescription called into a pharmacy, and the patient scheduled to visit the office first thing in the morning. If the patient has a true emergency of bleeding, intense pain, and/or serious infection, then help should be immediately sought at the nearest emergency room.
Our dentist will usually schedule a follow-up appointment to check on the patient’s progress or finish the needed procedures in aftercare. We will give each patient specific care instructions that should be followed for maximum relief. Patients should continue to schedule annual dental exams and bi-annual dental cleanings to catch and prevent any future problems that may require emergency care.
