After-Hours Emergency Care in San Pedro, CA
Though we do offer same-day emergency appointments to everyone who calls during business hours, all of our current patients have access to after-hours emergency dental care at Shook Dental Care. That means that after you become an established patient of Dr. Shook, we can take care of your urgent situation when we are not open.

A knocked-out tooth is one of the biggest emergency cases we see. The first step to saving your tooth is making a call to Shook Dental Care. We will prepare for your arrival, but need you to do a few things right away.
- Find the Tooth – We may be able to put it back in if you can get to us in time.
- Clean the Tooth – Warm water is fine – just be careful to avoid touching the tooth root.
