123 Dental Emergency Line
Many of our 123 Dentist locations are open evenings, weekends and even 7 days a week for you convenience. We do our best to fit into your schedule so you can see the dentist regularly and maintain your oral health easily. Between the hours of 6pm and 8 am, most dental clinics are closed so if you have a dental emergency–you usually had to wait until the morning to get some answers.
Dental emergencies can happen suddenly and without notice. Whether it’s a sudden tooth ache or a chipped tooth, most of us have experienced it in some form. When you have a dental emergency, many people don’t know what to do or where to go—especially if it happens after hours when all the dental clinics are closed. That’s why 123 Dentist created the After Hours Dental Emergency Line.
When you have a dental emergency, we’ll help you through it because we care about your oral health and your peace of mind. Our After Hours Dental Emergency Line is open 6pm to 8am, 7 days a week for your convenience. It’s a free service that allows you to speak to dental professional regarding your dental emergency.
When you call our Emergency line and speak to a real dental professional, we’ll help you understand what you should do and what you shouldn’t. We can also help you book the soonest possible appointment so you can get your emergency resolved right away.
If you have an after-hours dental emergency, call 604-805-2500 and we’ll help you through it!
Complimentary VELscope Screening Days
Did you know…
Oral cancer claims one life every hour. A VELscope exam takes 5 minutes and can save your life!
In honour of Oral Health Month, 123 Dentist and Willow Care Dental offices set out to increase awareness of oral cancer by offering FREE VElscope Exams on April 16th and 17th. As dental professionals, we were committed to support the fight against oral cancer so instead of collecting our standard fee for our VELscope screening process, we collected donations to Oral Cancer Research. Together, we raised $8, 164 for oral cancer research.
Thank you to everyone from Vancouver and the Lower Mainland who booked an appointment for their screening and donated to the BC Cancer Agency—we couldn’t have done it without you. We screened more people in our community for oral cancer, raised more money for oral cancer and this year’s campaign was our most successful yet. We hope to see everyone again next year!
The number of oral cancer diagnoses in North America are increasing. The five year survival rate for oral cancer is 52%–but it increases to 80-90% if it is discovered early. Our 123 dental professionals urge all of our patients to get regular VELscope screenings to ensure that they have good oral health.
A VELscope screening is a quick and non-invasive way to screen your mouth for abnormal tissue. The examination itself only takes one to two minutes. Your 123 dentist will scan your mouth with the VELScope hand piece and look for differences between normal and abnormal tissue. If any abnormal tissue is found, your 123 dentist will order a biopsy to determine the exact nature of the tissue.
If you missed our VELScope Screening Days, you can still get a VELscope exam at a 123 Dentist location near you. Early detection is the key to oral cancer prevention so make sure you book soon!
