We are now open for walk-in emergencies. If possible, please contact us in advance by telephone or email before visiting – it will save your time and ours. When arriving for unscheduled emergency treatment, please be here at 9 am or 2 pm and be prepared to wait, space permitted.

Due to a high volume of short notice cancellations and missed appointments, we will no longer be attending to emergency calls outside our normal business hours.

If you have an after-hours dental emergency and you are experiencing severe uncontrolled bleeding, swelling or pain you should contact the Association of Dental Surgeons of BC at 604-736-7202 for an alternate dentist recommendation or proceed to your nearest 24hr emergency facility.
