What You Can Expect During an Emergency Visit with Us

An emergency dentist whose #1 goal is making you comfortable!

First off, it’s our goal to get you out of pain as soon as possible. That’s why we offer same-day, evening, and Saturday appointments. When you get into our office, we’ll generally start by taking an x-ray of the affected tooth.

One of our Salt Lake City dentists will diagnose the source of the pain and discuss treatment options with you. From there, one of our treatment coordinators will discuss the fees, your dental insurance benefits, and payment options that are available to you.

If you’d like, we can provide nitrous oxide (relaxing gas) to calm your nerves. We will gently anesthetize the area to numb it. Once you’re comfortable, we will take care of your problem. After treatment, we will review post-op instructions and discuss pain management.

Legacy Dental: Ending Tooth Pain for People Since 1999

Legacy Dental was started in 1977 by Galen Campbell, DDS. In 1999, Jonathan Campbell, his son, joined his practice and began offering emergency care as a way to meet new patients and grow his practice.

Word soon spread to urgent care clinics, emergency rooms, and other dental offices that Legacy Dental could take care of dental emergencies the same day. Legacy Dental offered evening hours, Saturday appointments, and on-call care – this even included for new patients.

The practice continues to grow and provide emergency dental care to people in Salt Lake City. While we offer many other dental services, helping people get out of pain and solving their urgent dental problems is one of the things we enjoy most.

Meet our dental team, who is concerned about your needs and can take care of your smile.


What Emergency Dental Patients Are Saying

  • ‘‘I have been to Legacy Dental a few times, and every time they have been the best! I had a couple of dental emergencies that they worked me right in, and then also have had some dental work. The front desk to Dr. H has always been amazing. I love that there is never any hidden fees. They go over every charge with you beforehand and walk you thru your options, so there are no surprises. Everyone makes you feel welcome, not nervous, and just a great, pleasant experience. Definitely, recommend Legacy Dental for all dental needs. - ’’

The entire staff is very friendly, helpful, and professional. We love how everyone at Legacy works together as a team. DR. CAMPBELL, we give you a grade: A+++!’’
