What Sets Us Apart Why People See Us for Emergency Dental Needs 

Dentist preparing for emergency dental procedure


Many practices have to refer patients out for complex emergency dental problems. Our dentists at both of our Spring, TX, offices are prepared to handle virtually any dental emergency in-house. Under our care, people with dental emergencies don't have to shuttle from office to office.

Advanced Technology

We spare no expense when it comes to advanced dental technology. For example, many dental emergencies require crowns. Our dentists have invested in computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing technology that allows us to solve a dental crisis by providing same-day crowns. 

IV Sedation

Soothing Sedation

Dental emergencies are often painful. We do not want patients to experience any excess suffering once they step into one of our Spring locations. To heighten relaxation and prevent pain, our skilled dentists offer a number of sedation dentistry options. Depending on your needs, you can receive minimal sedation, moderate sedation, deep sedation, or general anesthesia. 

Outstanding Care by Leaders in Dentistry

Our team is renowned for considerate care, individualized treatment, and exceptional outcomes. Both luxury amenities and our empathetic team help make emergency dental situations as comfortable and calm as possible. We have been a pillar of the greater Houston community for years, and consistently add new patients to our dental family who are often referred by current patients.

Each of our dentists brings decades of experience, training, and skill to meet virtually any patient need. Drs. Robert Gatewood and Todd Swann honed their dental abilities during their years of service in the Navy and Army respectively. Dr. Jack Stephens graduated in the top 10% of his class at Houston’s University of Texas Dental School, and Dr. Christopher Pagano's professional honors include recognition of proficiency by the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology.

I had to have an emergency root canal on the very back tooth. (Hard to keep your mouth open enough). Dr. Swan was so patient as well as his assistant. I’ve had three different dentists here over the years and everyone is so attentive to your comfort and safety.
