Emergency Exams

We understand that not all dental examinations are considered routine. Some oral assessments need to be done based on situational requirements. The Napa Valley Dental Group. has complete facilities and equipment to handle dental emergencies as they come. Our dental professionals and staff are capable and trained to address the emergency needs of patients. We have action plans ready to implement for immediate cases of dental trauma or pain.

What is considered as a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is a situation where the patient needs immediate attention because of these two major concerns:

  • Dental trauma – This is when the patient has been involved in an accident that has injured any or a combination of the following: the jaw, the lips, soft tissues of the mouth, the teeth, and the gums.
  • Pain – This happens when the dental pain of the patient is at distracting levels, to the point that it is close to impossible for the patient to focus on anything else aside from the pain.

The main difference between an emergency and a non-emergency examination, though, is the sense of urgency present. Having bridgework done or getting teeth cleaned are routine procedures that typically do not involve dental trauma or pain. Procedures such as those do not have a sense of urgency and are therefore not considered as requiring emergency exams.

A patient needing an emergency exam may be a walk-in or brought in by other people who are trying to help the patient. However, there may also be times when an emergency dental situation is called in by the patient or the patient’s companions.

We will accommodate you and help you as soon as possible. Our team is here to take care of your dental needs.

Our office can be reached for an emergency appointment by calling (707) 257-2400. Our office address is 2119 Jefferson St. Napa, CA 94559.

Excellent care and wonderful front of house staff which makes such a difference. 5 stars! We were very happy with the dental work out son received in a caring and warm atmosphere.


I’ve never experienced a friendlier, more organized, more effecient group of professionals in ANY medically focused office of any sort. If your appointment is at 10:00, expect to be called in no later than 10:01..

The price was right the staff was above and beyond. I also had a beautiful doctor Kumar taking care of me do it was s very pleasant experience. She did the tooth extraction flawlessly and I’m a big man with big teeth. I had read reviews before I chose this dentist and the 5 stars in my opinion aren’t enough. They have a repeat customer and after a couple of disappointments it’s nice to be able to say that. Thank you Yuvika and staff.

I have the good fortune of having Dr. Bhullar as my dentist in Napa, Ca. He has taken care of my entire family, even putting my daughter through braces. He has done Root canals and Crowns, fixed broken teeth, you name it. We trust his work and his advice completely, and all his work has been outstanding. Dr. Bhullar takes time to explain all the procedures. He explains all the pros and cons of the treatment so that I can make an independent judgment.His staff is also extremely helpful! From the moment, you walk in the door, you sense this is no ordinary dental office (Thank You Laura) for your patience and help in explaining everything. You guys are the BEST!

Honestly I’ve always been extremely skeptical of dental appointments and have had a few bad experiences, but I could not be more relieved when leaving my appointment today. I definitely felt “”taken care of”” by the quality of care I received as well as their extension of help in multiple aspects of what I needed.Very pleased and again, relieved

I couldn’t be more thrilled with the Napa Valley Dental Group. The whole staff is absolutely friendly, accommodating, and truly genuine. Dr. Bhullar is detailed and gentle, his skills are second to none. I will be recommending all friends and family from now on.
