We understand the urgency of dental pain and any kind of dental emergency. Our priority is to get people in as quickly as possible. We try to work them into the schedule that same day, that same hour if we can, just to let people know how much we care and the urgency of taking care of their problems.
If you call during business hours, our compassionate staff will schedule an appointment for you ASAP. If your emergency occurs outside regular business hours, your call will be routed to Dr. Betts, who can advise you on how to handle your emergency. Our system allows him to reference your current patient information and schedule an appointment for you himself if necessary.

Safety and Comfort Ease Your Emergency Care
Your family’s safety is a top priority in our Decatur, AL dentist office. It’s always important, but especially in an emergency. Every staff member is trained in health and safety procedures. Even some members of our front office staff are clinicians! We check and clean water lines and autoclaves every week, and we use special wraps on all equipment to make sure it’s sterile. We’ll also offer you goggles during every procedure to protect your eyes.
Our team has more than 100 years of combined dental experience, so they have lots of experience in soothing nerves. If you’re chilly in our chair, you can get a blanket. And a soft pillow will help you relax.
Nitrous Oxide Takes the Edge Off
Even if you’re calm under normal dental circumstances, an emergency can make you anxious. If it does, you can get nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), which is so safe we can even give it to children. It takes effect quickly and wears off quickly too, so you won’t feel groggy afterward.
If you have a dental emergency in Decatur, don’t panic! Call 256-274-8680 for fast relief.
