General Dentistry


If you experience a dental emergency such as a broken tooth, pain, swelling or dental trauma, we encourage you to contact the Melbourne Dental Group as quickly as possible. Dental emergencies should be addressed at the earliest possible convenience and are best managed by your dentist. Delaying treatment may not only make it more complex, but may also increase your discomfort.

If your emergency occurs during office hours, contact us to ensure prompt management of your concern. We’ll do everything to see you as soon as possible.

For an after hours dental emergency, the Melbourne Dental Group provides their existing patients with emergency contact phone numbers of their dentist, so that advice can be provided immediately. Call the surgery on 03 9654 5105 for a recorded message with a list of these numbers.
