We ask that all new patients print the new patient paperwork, fill it out as completely as possible, and bring it with you to your first appointment.

Dental Emergencies

Dental pain can play a large detriment to your everyday life, including causing missed work and sleep. Nobody deserves to be in pain! At Brookings Family Dentistry, our goal is to get you in the same day to address your pain and get you the relief you deserve. At your visit a limited exam will be completed by Dr. Hilbrands and any needed X-rays taken to evaluate your symptoms and chief complaint. If treatment it indicated, we will discuss options and cost to find the best option to comfortably get you out of pain. Additional treatment may be required at a separate scheduled visit. If your emergency happens after regular business hours please email us at or send us a message on Facebook and we will promptly respond. Call today to get out of pain!
