The cost of your dental emergency visit will depend on a couple of key factors, including what the issue at-hand is and what treatment option you go with to provide you with lasting relief. Dr. Fitzgerald always takes the time to walk you through your options so you can make the best decision for your smile, and our team is more than happy to assist with any financial questions.
