River Heights Dental Care received a call from frantic parents. The parents had an eight year old daughter and they got into quite a scare when they gave their daughter a caramel apple. She took her first bite into the caramel apple and she pulled out three teeth with that first bite. Their daughter never mentioned to her parents that she had any loose teeth so the parents wanted her to have a dental checkup with a great general dentist in SSP. The staff assured the parents that Dr. Christopherson would check their daughter’s teeth out thoroughly, and we got the family into the office that same afternoon.
The parents showed up with their daughter, and we took them right back to see Dr. Christopherson. Dr. Christopherson looked over the girls teeth, and let the parents know that what had happened was fairly common and they had nothing to worry about. The parents were very glad to have some of their worries put at ease because Dr. Christopherson reassured them that this often happens to children of this age, and it was very common. They scheduled another appointment with River Heights Dental Care, because they wanted to make sure that their daughter’s teeth would come in normally. They didn’t want to take any chances with their child’s teeth. They are just glad that they found a general dentist in SSP that could see them in their emergency, then put all their worries away.
