You've done your part to find us, we'll take it from here

No matter what kind of dental care you need, you'll be in skilled hands at Central Park West Dentistry

Emergency Dentistry

Maybe you just moved to New York and are having a terrible toothache, maybe you're visiting for the weekend and your crown fell off, or maybe you cracked a tooth and your regular dentist is unavailable. Either way, we're here for you to provide emergency dental care. We provide people with emergencies the same quality care we give people who've been coming to see us for a decade.

 

Chances are, at some point in your life you’ll experience a dental emergency, and when you do, Central Park West Dentistry is here to relieve you of your pain, even on the weekends. We’re open early mornings and late evenings, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays for emergency dental appointments. No matter what the trouble is, we’ll see to it that you’re taken care of, and back to smiling in no time. We’re not open overnight, but we do have a friendly answering service who can schedule you for a next-day emergency appointment, sometimes as early as 8 am.

When you call us to schedule your 1st emergency appointment, we’ll request your credit card number to reserve time with the doctor just for you.  This allows us to avoid double booking appointments (a practice common at other offices) and ensures you have the dedicated time you need with your provider. Once an appointment is booked- unless we hear otherwise – we’ll expect you’ll be there. Please let us know at least 48 hours in advance if you won’t be able to make it. If you cancel your appointment less than 48 hours in advance or skip it, we’ll charge your credit card a $75 cancellation fee. We promise we’ll only charge this card if you don’t keep your reserved appointment.

Some of the dental emergencies our dentists see frequently include:

  • Toothaches
  • Abscesses
  • Chipped teeth
  • Swollen gums
  • Dental trauma
  • Accidents
  • Crown repair
  • Root canals
  • Infections and inflammation

What People are Saying

OUTSTANDING Dentist and Staff. I had a dental emergency and he saw me that day, got me into a specialist the next morning and saw me later that day. The care that his staff and him put into the work was outstanding. He is a professional and at the risk of sounding corny, an artist. He took his time and gave me the best quality care I could hope for. Also I have anxiety at the dentists office because I have been so many times for the same tooth. For the first time in a long time I felt relaxed and able to trust in his work. I don't want to ever have another dentist.
Katrina S.
Literally saved me from enormous pain while visiting NYC. He is kind, knowledgeable and even gave me his cell phone to contact him with any problems. He called to see if I was ok, and text me back with any concerns I had. I will never go anywhere else when in NYC, although I hope to not need a dentist! If I do, he's the one...do not hesitate to see him, the office staff is also wonderful.
Carey K.
I never felt so comfortable in a dentist office, ever! I am extremely fearful of the dental procedures and have been for over 40 years, but the dentist and his assistant made my first "emergency" visit a good one!
Stacey C.
Great service! I just arrived to NYC and notices a minor thing with my temporary crown which I wanted to be checked out. I was pretty excited that this place is open until 9 pm and they were able to schedule same day appointment. I got in and out in the evening without any extra wait time. Everyone was super nice and welcoming. My insurance was accepted as well. I will definitely come back here if I ever need dental help in NYC.
Margarita K.
I was traveling from Florida to NYC on business when I broke off an old filling. It was Sunday so I called CPW from the airport. They were able to get me in first thing Monday before my meetings started. Everyone in the office -- from the person who took my call on Sunday to the Doctor, assistants, receptionist, the person handling the insurance and payment were simply outstanding. This place provides the type of customer service that should be the standard !!
Barry G.
We have been patients of Dr. Lhota for over 20 years. He and his staff are always very helpful. When I recently contacted him with a tooth emergency, he and Jung stayed late on a Saturday to make sure the issue was taken care of. Both Jung and Dr. Lhota display such professionalism, compassion and empathy it makes the whole experience of going to the dentist, even during an emergency, that much more comforting.
Craig K.
My husband needed to have an emergency meeting twice with this dental office. Both times were excellent!!!!!! His dentist is Dr. McLean who is amazing. The staff Jung, Georgette and Diane are so lovely. I could not be happier that we found such an amazing dental group. The whole family is now going to be with this office. I have never had a dental staff or doctor treat you as though you were an old friend. We have never had an experience where we were felt welcomed. Most of the time it was feeling like we were a part of a cattle call. Thank you to all of the staff and doctors for being so great.
