Word to the wise in Huntingdon, Pa. Don’t have a dental emergency from Thursday evening until Monday morning. All the dentists in the Huntingdon area are out of the office from quitting time Thursday until Monday am. I repeat, if you live in the Huntingdon Pa area, don’t have a dental emergency, trust me.
Having fractured a molar Friday morning, I couldn’t get a dentist to see me until 11:00 am on Monday. That’s over 72 hours. Guess that’s why our dental bills are so high, If they would be open 5 days a week, they could see more patients and charge us less, Yeah Right!
Thanks to Dr. Wong located on Washington St in Huntingdon. He did call me from his cell phone and tried to get an assistant to help him on a Saturday. Then he called back to tell me to call the office 1st thing on Monday to be worked in for an emergency visit.
Turns out I’m very lucky to go in when I did. What I thought was a fracture and simple tooth extraction turned out to be much more serious than I thought. A bad infection had taken over 3 teeth on the upper right side and the sinus is so low Dr. Wong had to not only extract the teeth but he also had to place the membrane in my jaw to prevent the sinus from further problems. Dr. Wong explained just how serious this could have been.
Again, A Big Thank You to Dr. Wong and all his staff. I highly recommend them if you’re in need of a dentist in the Huntingdon, Pa area.
