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)

What To Do For An Emergency

Business Hours

If your pet has an emergency within business hours call…

1800 838 336

Out of Hours

If your pet has an emergency outside of business hours (9am-5pm) call the North Shore Specialist Hospital in Artarmon on…

(02) 9436 4884.

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.

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).

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.

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.
