Dental emergencies come in all shapes and sizes, but they always have at least one thing in common: they are never, EVER planned! No one can anticipate a knocked out tooth or painful toothache ruining their day, but what you CAN do is have a plan should the unexpected ever happen to your smile. For the people of Tullahoma, that plan is simple: call Petty Dental.
Dr. John Petty and our team have handled countless emergencies over the years, so no matter your situation, you can trust that we’ll be able to take care of you. We always try to see emergency patients the same day that they call in, so when you’re in pain, you can trust that we won’t leave you waiting. We’ll work as fast as we can to provide relief so you can get back to your life and start forgetting your dental emergency right away.
