Why It's Important to Always Have the Information of a Nearby Dentist When Traveling
Posted on 9/21/2021 by Dr. Frank K. Sioda
When you are traveling, it seems a myriad of things can go wrong. For instance, if you are trying a local cuisine while on vacation, you may be more adventurous when choosing a menu item. If that menu item is too sticky or hard and causes your existing dental work to break, you will need the help of a local dentist.
Perhaps you are traveling with your son or daughter's sports team. If your child has an unfortunate collision on the field and makes contact with another player in the face, they could have dental trauma. You will need to know who to contact to know what to do to resolve the situation. For these reasons, it is important to always have information of a nearby dentist at your fingertips.
Talk to Your Dental Insurance Company
If your dental incident happens during regular business hours you can call your dental insurance company to get a list of dentists in the area that the dental insurance company has a relationship with. If you need dental help outside of business hours, you could visit the website of the dental insurance companies that emerge after a web search to find a list of dental providers. If you need dental assistance away from home and after business hours, and it is a dental emergency, go to the hospital and they can help find the right professional in the area to treat you.
