Virtual Appointments for Dental Emergencies in Princeton Princeton, NJ
Telemedicine Princeton NJ

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, dentists across Princeton and the greater United States have had to close their doors to anything outside of essential services, such as emergency dental treatment. But at Prime Dental Care, we’re making the most of this “social distancing” situation to introduce our patients to a little-known service: virtual dental appointments.

What is Teledentistry?

Chances are, you’ve probably already heard of telemedicine. That is, you talk to your doctor or another medical provider over the phone, via a FaceTime call, or through an app. You can share messages, photos, or even get prescription medication called in based on the symptoms you’re experiencing.

With teledentistry, we perform virtual dental screenings over the phone. No, it’s not the same as getting to see our Princeton dentist for a detailed emergency exam, but it does allow for us to assess the situation to determine what to do next.

Some of the reasons you might want to set up a virtual emergency appointment include things like:

  • Tooth pain
  • Broken or chipped tooth
  • Swelling in your gums
  • Injury to your mouth
  • Abscessed tooth

Virtual Dentistry: Safe and Affordable

Booking a virtual emergency dental appointment in Princeton prevents you from having to go out in public during coronavirus “social distancing”. But it also gives you the peace of mind you need when you’re in pain. Depending on what your emergency is, we can either arrange to meet you up at our office for treatment or prescribe appropriate medication until the COVID-19 pandemic dies down.

Looking for an online dental screening? Call our Princeton dentist today to learn more!

Ms P.

My husband has been going to Dr Ma and this practice for many years and swears by them so I thought I would try it out. Very pleasant and professional with a great location and good availability, they respond to queries in a timely way and provide reminders for appointments via text which is great since some practices appear to be in the dark ages on some of the practical stuff. Everyone seems to try to ensure you have a pleasant visit (in spite of being to the dentist!) so kudos to the whole operation. Also, a lot of care has been taken to go above and beyond the requirements of hygiene during this pandemic including state-of-the-art air filtration systems.

Jay J.

Starting from reception to the assistant to the doctors they are so amazing. I have major dental anxiety and they were above and beyond sweet and nice to me. I have come back after a root canal and I can go for a run I feel that good and comfortable with them. They rock! They are awesome- I highly recommend this place

Xiao L.

I’m experiencing a very painful toothache during the COVID-19 period. Thanks for Dr. Ma’s quick response using the “teledentistry”, I got a timely and precise diagnosis without having to step out of my house. I really appreciated their help at this moment!

Zoe F.

I have been here multiple times with Maggie and Dr.Patel. Both of them are amazing and make you feel very comfortable the whole time!

Prime Dental care has a great friendly staff. I had a wonderful experience with my hygienist Kate, she was very thorough, professional, and kind! Dr. Ma was informative and did a wonderful job of explaining everything. Would highly recommend Prime Dental Care!

Dr. Ma and her staff are very friendly and super thorough. They take the time to explain every part of the care and are invested in my overall dental health. I would recommend them to everyone!
