Are There Things an Emergency Dentist Cannot Do?

I’ve seen an emergency dentist before, for an abscessed tooth that (of course) chose to flare up while I was on vacation. I was several states away from my regular dentist. That got me thinking: I spend upwards of three months at a time in my vacation state, and I really like the doctor I […]
