If you require emergency dental care, Dr. Pete Nathe and our team will do everything we can to meet with you on the same day so that you do not need to endure pain or embarrassment. If you are experiencing a dental emergency in Yakima, Washington, please call our office immediately at (509) 965-7909.

How Our Emergency Dentist Can Help



Dental emergencies can arise from a wide range of accidental and systemic causes. Depending on your unique situation and type of emergency, Dr. Nathe can use a variety of treatments and techniques to quickly address your pain and find a solution to your problem.

All dental emergencies are serious. If you have suffered injuries to your teeth or gums, you should seek immediate help. Delaying treatment can lead to dangerous infections, nerve and blood vessel damage and more. The sooner you contact our office, the better our chances are of saving your tooth and preventing escalating costs. Left untreated, many dental emergencies can worsen and subsequently require more expensive and complex treatments.

Yakima Smiles treats a wide range of dental emergencies, including:

  • Severe toothache
  • Chipped, cracked or broken tooth
  • Loosened or knocked-out tooth
  • Abscessed tooth
  • Missing filling or crown
