Saturday Emergency

My wife and I met at Northwestern University and my wife also went to Northwestern Law School. Consequently, we have a strong bond to our alma mater. Even though we are far from Chicago now, we try to stay involved, and this Saturday we were at the South Florida Big Ten Alumni Picnic which was a great time to meet some of the other area Northwestern alum's and also fellow Big Ten conferencers. It was a great time and I did learn one thing... those Penn Stater's know how to party!!
Folks from each Big Ten school were there at the picnic... Kind of like above :)
 Anyway, about 30mins into the picnic my phone rings and it is one of our new patients. She broke a tooth and was having some pain to cold and hot. She had no problem reaching me since I give my cell phone to each patient because I want to be available whenever they need me. I know a lot of doctors that are shy about that sort of thing but I am definitely the opposite. I want my patients to know they can get in touch with me whenever they have a concern or question. I still have the one and only cell phone number I've ever had: 708-323-7426 and I encourage anyone to call or text me anytime with their dental questions.

The new patient had heard that we had extended hours and was hoping we would be open on Saturday. I told her that we didn't have regular Saturday hours yet and she said that she didn't mean to bother me and that she would put some wax on her tooth until Monday. She's such a sweet lady but of course that was not an acceptable solution for me at all and I told her I would be happy to meet her later in the afternoon to take care of her issue.

A couple hours later we met at the office and I was very glad we did. She had broken a crown which exposed the nerve and I could see how she would be in pain. I was able to cover and protect the tooth and schedule her for more definitive work on Monday. We were both happy that she would be out of pain for the rest of the weekend.

All in all, it was a great weekend and I think that is what being available is all about! I love what I do and I think a big part of doing it well is being there when people need you the most. Fisher & Addison Dental is here for you!

Here for you :)


I'm really excited because we have been very busy lately  making changes and updates to our dental office! New paint, updated furniture and beautiful art have given our reception room a fresh new look and one of the additions I am most enthusiastic about is our extended hours. I am proud to say that we have arranged for our excellent quality care to be offered Monday through Friday with late evening hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays! 

This is great news for all of those hard working folks out there that know it is important to go to the dentist but find it difficult to take off from work. With dental appointments available as late as 7:30pm it should be easier to get those teeth cleaned, whitened or get those veneers you've always wanted :) Also, with more extended hours we are here for you in case of an emergency or tooth pain which has a habit of striking at the worst possible moments. 

So please keep Fisher & Addison Dental in mind when you are planning for your oral health. We're great with kids and the later hours are perfect time to come to the dentist without having to miss school and without parents having to miss work. 

We are a full service general, cosmetic and family dental office providing beautiful crowns, bridges, implants, invisalign, root canals, extractions, dentures, implants, bone-grafting, BPA-free white fillings and more! And WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!
