Emergencies



Metrowest Prosthodontics is committed to continuing to operate for patients with dental emergencies and essential needs during this time. If you have a dental emergency, we offer the option of a phone call or a virtual consult with one of our providers.  Please contact the office at 508-620-6622 and we will make the appropriate arrangements to see you.

Our goal is to avoid patients with dental emergencies from going to the Emergency room at local hospitals and placing themselves at risk from being in contact with other patients who may be sick. During this time we will be treating patients with dental emergencies and urgent problems. 

Elective and non urgent procedures will resume at a time when it is safe to do so.
