It is a good idea to visit our dentist every six months for your regular checkup, but life can be unpredictable. Accidents happen, and at some point, many people develop a toothache or dental injury unexpectedly. Our dentist, Dr. Abid Hidayat, and team will be happy to see you if you have a dental emergency in Scarborough, Toronto, Ontario. Contact The Smile Team and a member of our team will schedule you for an appointment and give you some tips on how to handle your emergency until you can come in to see us.
