Emergencies

There are thankfully very few dental emergencies but some problems require prompt attention. There is a small window of opportunity to treat these problems. See the list and the images below for dental emergency situations:

Fractures of the teeth exposing the living tissue inside the tooth (pulp)

Teeth that have been pulled out completely – including the root(s)

Send An Emergency SMS Message
What To Do For An Emergency
If your pet has an emergency the best contact is to TEXT/SMS Dr Christine directly on 0408 782 611. Be sure to start the message with ‘EMERGENCY’ and leave the best contact number. Dr Christine will call you as soon as possible. Please be respectful of this excellent service and only text if you truly feel it is an emergency.
Alternatively, ring the Emergency Department at the Animal Referral Hospital Homebush on (02) 9758 8666, which is open 24 hours. They will contact Dr Christine as required.
Trauma patients – such as road accidents – may also have dental problems, but the importance in this situation is on stabilisation and critical care for your pet, not so much the tooth. Transfer to your local vet or emergency centre is the priority.

Booking An Appointment

Dr Christine Hawke consults and operates (by appointment) at the Animal Referral Hospital on Mondays and Thursdays. Other days can also be arranged as necessary, including weekends. To book an appointment, ring the Animal Referral Hospital Homebush directly on (02) 9758 8666.
Many dental problems can be treated professionally and safely by your own vet, usually at a lower cost and the convenience that all your pet’s treatment stays ‘in-house’. Complicated problems can be referred to Christine via your local vet. She prefers to work through referral as this provides much better continuity of care for your pet, especially those with previous dental issues or other health problems. She can discuss your pet’s health issues with your own vet, and access their medical records, blood tests etc. This also minimises the risk of a non-dental problem being discovered by Dr Christine at your dental visit, which would then need to be dealt with by your vet prior to dental surgery (resulting in extra trips between practices, and extra stress). However, Dr Christine is happy for you to contact her directly for advice if you prefer. Click Here

Call Dr Christine

Dr Hawke listens to her voicemail twice a day. Leave a message on 1300 838 336 and she will return your call. Alternatively (to avoid playing phone tag) you can book a phone call at a time that is best for you and she will call you to discuss your pet’s problems (see the section and tool below).

Book a Phone Call

The most convenient way to speak to Dr Hawke is by having her return your phone call at a predetermined time set by you. The benefit of this is that you will be free and she will have the time to properly discuss your pet’s problems. It’s a great way to avoid phone tag and to give you both the time to discuss your concerns. Book through the button below.

Email Dr Christine

Christine’s email address is christine[at]sydneypetdentistry.com.au. She gets a LOT of emails and will do her very best to reply within 24-48 hours. The quickest way to get a response is through the form at the top of this page. Please include as much information as you can.

Pricing

Dr Christine receives many enquiries relating to the pricing of procedures. This is completely understandable! While she can sometimes give a rough guide for fairly ‘standard’ procedures such as root canal treatment, the costs can vary depending on the individual problem, the size of your pet, and other medical issues affecting the anaesthetic. All procedures include the benefits of Dr Christine’s skill and experience, and the facilities of a 24 hour referral hospital. Click here for some pricing guidelines: Please remember that until she has examined your pet she cannot give more than a rough idea of a diagnosis or estimate of costs. A human dentist would not even consider diagnosing and estimating treatment costs without examining you. It is exactly the same for Dr Christine. Booking in a consultation is by far the quickest and safest way to ensure a correct diagnosis and treatment for your pet.

Getting to the Animal Referral Hospital

The Animal Referral Hospital is located at 250 Parramatta Rd Homebush West. Handy hint: make sure you enter ‘Homebush West’ in your GPS (as Parramatta Road changes numbers several times). You can download the Animal Referral Hospital’s referral form – clients can either bring this to the appointment or referring veterinarians can fax it directly to the Animal Referral Hospital on (02) 9758 8880. Important! Many pets require general anaesthesia for assessment and treatment. Usually this can be done on the day of consultation so it is best to not feed your pet the morning of consultation. Water is fine until you leave home.
