Same-Day Emergency Dentistry

The goal is to alleviate pain and get the mouth back to a healthy state again. Since emergencies can happen at any time, dentists provide same-day, after-hours, or weekend appointments.

A Champion for Educational Care
However, after completing dental school, Dr. Ronan became discouraged with the field of dentistry, as every associate position she held constrained her in how she could treat patients. She knew that in order to practice according to her ethics and standard of care, she would need to open up a practice of her own! This is where the idea of Staten Island Dental Boutique was born.
Today, her goal is to provide patients with a comfortable environment in which they can receive exceptional care while learning about how to care for their smiles. Dr. Ronan will always do everything in her power to answer questions, help you understand any treatment, and empower you to make the best decision for your smile according to your lifestyle, budget, and personal goals. She always upholds the principles of honesty, transparency, and communication. Therefore, she vows not to commit to any treatment unless the patient themselves understands and is confident that this is the correct treatment for them.
What she enjoys most about being a dentist is being able to restore people's health while transforming their smiles aesthetically, too. Pairing her artistic eye with her extensive education and training, you can rest assured that your smile is in good hands with Dr. Ronan.
Outside of the office, Dr. Ronan can be found hanging out with her parrot, Lago, binge watching shows on Netflix, or exploring new restaurants with her husband. As a self-proclaimed foodie, Dr. Ronan is happy to dole out any restaurant recommendations if you’re looking to try a new place!
What to do in a Dental Emergency
KEEP CALM & REDUCE BLEEDING
Dental injuries can turn a normal day into a stressful and painful experience, but it's important to remain calm. Remember that we are here to assist you. By taking a few deep breaths and assessing the situation, you'll be better equipped to make the right decisions in an emergency. If your dental injury or accident is causing bleeding, apply pressure to the affected area with a clean piece of gauze. Keep the gauze in place until the bleeding stops or until you can reach our office for further treatment.
CONTROL SWELLING & PAIN
Pain medication such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can temporarily reduce pain or swelling. Avoid blood-thinning medications such as aspirin as they can make it difficult to control the bleeding. Along with medication, you can also reduce pain by using a cold compress, such as an ice pack, on the cheek or lip near the affected area.
CALL US RIGHT AWAY
After composing your dental emergency, call us right away. Even if you're not certain if your situation is an emergency, our team will evaluate the severity of the injury and schedule an appointment as soon as possible to provide the necessary care. That way, you can get out of pain and restore the health of your tooth.
The Importance of Prompt Emergency Care
Same-Day Dental Care
Looking for immediate care? Same-day dentistry gets you in our office right away, so you can quickly get back to a healthy oral state. During your visit, your dentist will examine the dental injury and craft an immediate plan to heal and restore your smile that very same day.
After Hours Appointments
Not all dental emergencies happen during business hours! That’s why we offer after-hours appointments for patients experiencing emergencies that can’t wait to be treated. Call our office to schedule an appointment if you are experiencing a dental emergency beyond our usual hours. Our team will do everything we can to work with your schedule, alleviate your pain, and get your smile back to thriving health.
If a dental emergency occurs over the weekend, there’s no need for you to wait in pain until Monday for an appointment. Our office provides limited weekend availability and appointments by request to ensure you receive the immediate treatment you deserve.
When issues arise, our team can perform problem-focused exams (also known as limited exams) to help address the issues. Limited exams allow us to focus on what’s hurting or injured so we can get you out of pain and back to normal again.
Digital X-Rays & Imaging
Better diagnostics means better results. With modern imaging techniques, we can quickly and accurately assess your dental emergency, and create a treatment plan right away, so you can relieve your dental pain and get back to your life.
