"For after hours problems, please refer to the
trouble-shooting guide below."

Most orthodontic problems are not medical emergencies and can be taken care of with one of these simple and quick remedies. Please call our office the next business morning so a follow-up care visit can be scheduled at your convenience. If the suggested remedy is unsuccessful, please contact our on-call staff member at 507-676-5824. There is an additional charge of $175.00 for after hours emergency office visits. Normal business hours are Monday Thursday 8 am to 5 pm and Friday 8 am to 2 pm.

If you are experiencing a true medical emergency such as trauma, obstructed airway, allergic reaction, or infection, call 911 or visit the nearest hospital Emergency Room immediately.
