Dental Emergencies

Houston oral surgeons, Dr. Weil and Dr. Koo, or a back up dentist is on call at all times. If you have a dental emergency during normal office hours, please call the office. If you are a patient of record (you have been seen in the office by our dentists previously) and you need assistance after business hours you may call the office number (713) 783-5560 to have the answering service page the dentist.

If you are not a patient of record, you are welcome to contact us at any time for advice or possible dental care treatment if the situation is an emergency. It is not generally possible, however, for new patients to have a dental extraction performed after hours. You may be seen and treated in one of the local emergency rooms where Dr. Weil and Dr. Koo is on staff. Additionally, it is not possible, indeed technically not legal, for patients who have not been seen by Dr. Weil and Dr. Koo in the past to obtain prescriptions for any medications over the telephone. We are very happy to help anyone needing our services in any way we can do so. You are encouraged to explore the urgent dental care options we offer by contacting the on call dentist. If you have a problem that you feel is truly a medical emergency, please contact us immediately. We will arrange to provide care for you in the most appropriate setting, whether office or hospital.
