I really fell in love with this Dentist Office. When you walk in the atmosphere is great, friendly, homie place. I was in so much pain they seen me the same day. The doctor is so amazing and he has a heart for what he does and put your needs first. If you're looking for a great dentist check this office out. Even open on the weekends

When I went in it was LATE on a Saturday day night and I was in excruciating pain. The staff was so warm and friendly and made me comfortable. The dentist even turned the air down because I said I was cold. I ended up having to have 3 teeth extracted and they took their time and moved with such care. This is by far one of the BEST experiences I have ever had with a dentist especially with the circumstances in which they saw me. They now have a new regular client in me. I will refer anyone with ears. Plus they are open weekends. AMAZING!!!!

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Adam and his staff. I was very anxious about the appointment and any procedure, but Dr. Adam was very patient with me and explained everything to me thoroughly and answered all my questions and the procedure went smoothly. My gratitude for Dr. Adam and his staff goes beyond the stars! There is no other dentist I would go to or recommend! When you find the best, you keep it

I normally do not post reviews but Longview Family and Emergency Dental care deserves recognition for honesty and integrity. I went there for a 2nd opinion and ended up paying much- much less. I was misdiagnosed at the previous dentist. This is really one of the best dental experience I have ever had. Everyone was so nice, the place is very clean and I was very comfortable in a dentist office for the first time in a long time. Highly recommend!!

Dr. Adam is an absolutely outstanding dentist. He is very professional and talented. He has a great experience and does an excellent job.He genuinely cares about his patients. I would highly recommend him without any hesitation.

I came in on a Saturday in a ridiculous amount of pain after searching far and wide for an open dentist office. The receptionist/assistant was an extremely kind, funny, sweet girl who instantly made me feel at ease. She’s prompt, knowledgeable, and super easy to talk to! The dentist was just as wonderful! He understood that I was a little nervous and did his absolute best (and succeeded) to talk me through everything. He answered all of my dumb questions very attentively and with a smile. I’ve finally found a dentist that I actually like! The office is an hour drive away from where I live, but the quality care and kindness more than makes up for the long drive! Thank you so much, Dr. Adam! I’m forever grateful to you for being open on a Saturday!
March 22, 2020
Dr. Adam is by far the BEST dentist!! I was so nervous to get an extraction but he was super patient and explained everything so well!! I definitely will be coming back and I’ve even referred my entire family because he’s so good!

I have had a few bad dental experiences and was extremely anxious to have to find a dentist in an urgent situation with a broken tooth on Friday evening. I was so relieved by the professionalism and efficiency of the staff. Throughout the entire visit, they were very reassuring, patient, and helpful. Dr Zaher is my new dentist now, no question! He did a fantastic job, everything went so smoothly and it actually seemed to go by quickly. He made the procedure as comfortable as possible and communicated with me the entire time. He has great personality that helped me relax a lot. His confidence, experience, knowledge, and thoughtfulness were very much appreciated. It was a busy Friday evening and when he was in the room with me he was focused on me and my procedure. If you need a new dentist, or need appointments later in the day (or Saturdays), go see him!

Super amazing!! Went at 8pm for severe pain in one of my upper right molars. They gave me the options, explained each one, and I had a quick and painless extraction. Definitely would recommend them to anyone. The dentist is nice and friendly and the staff were all really sweet as well 🙂

Quick, painless and very friendly dentist and staff! I usually get nervous when I go to the dentist but they made my whole experience calming. Definitely will be going to them from now on and the fact that they are open late and on weekends is a major plus!

This was my first time at Longview family and emergency dental care and I will definitely be making this my primary dental office! The dentist,Dr. Zaher, assistant, and receptionist were all very helpful in answering all my questions and very hands on with their explanations. Nothing ever felt rushed, and they made sure I understood everything as they went through different processes. And another pro, they gave me a free electric toothbrush for my first visit! No other dentist office has ever gotten my teeth this clean or educated me so well on dental hygiene. Highly recommended. By the way, the office is super cute, modern and clean. Best overall dentist experience I’ve ever had in my whole life. Thank you so much longview family and emergency dental care.

LOVE this place! The entire staff was amazing, and made me feel right at home. I went expecting to lose a tooth,but Dr. Adam saved it, and fixed a longtime problem, all in the same visit. I have a horrible fear of the dentist, he made me so comfortable, that I am looking forward to going back. Our entire family will be using this place. AMAZING PLACE AND PEOPLE!!! I cannot say enough good things about everyone here! And thank goodness, everyone there has a great sense of humor! Prices are very reasonable too!
April 10, 2021
Finally got around to giving this review I promised. I've had more bad experiences with dentists in the past that left my with a sour taste in my mouth.. pun intended. But Dr. Adam and his amazing staff have given me the opportunity to go without the accompanying dread. Pleasant atmosphere, prompt service, personable people, and services explained in details not numbers and $$$. Thanks!!!! Told y'all I would give a good review!!! 😋

I can not thank Longview Family and Emergency Dental Care enough, they were so kind and caring regarding my tooth pain, Dr Zahar helped me with the pain so that I could concentrate on what the best decision would be regarding my tooth. I really appreciate that he realized you can not focus when your in that much pain. I had been dealing with a severely painful tooth for days and another dentist office scheduled me for 5 days out, this office told my husband "bring her now" I am just so grateful! I highly recommend this dentist office.
July 5, 2020
Usually, I’m quite anxious and stressed about even calling the dentist, but this place is amazing! I felt absolutely no pain and the procedures that I had were extremely quick. They explain everything in detail about your personalized dental plan and costs. The staff is personable and friendly and the Dr. puts your care and comfort first, plus he has a cool sense of humor. I am happy that I was referred to Longview Family and Emergency Dental!
November 27, 2020
Dr. Zaher was very patient, understanding, passionate, and caring. After pulling my teeth he did not leave my side until I felt better. Overall, a great experience.

Very friendly staff. I had a filling break loose and they got me right in. Highly recommend them to anyone.
September 11, 2020
I had a toothache in a tooth that was part of a bridge. As the day went on Saturday the pain got worse. I called the emergency office and spoke to Anna. She said come right in. After X-ray , Dr Adam showed me the infection and the root canal that was not good. He discussed everything he was going to do. He knew I was stressed so he gave me several breaks to get myself a rest. It was a removal that was ,to me, a little tricky. Dr Adam did a great job. I will go back again to implants. I have confidence that all will go fine. The experience was a good one. Anna caked to check on me today. That shows that they care about their patients. Thank you both for making me feel at ease!!!

Dental emergencies can happen at any time. When it does, you should immediately contact your emergency dentist for proper treatment. It is important to remember that some dental emergencies have to be treated within 30 minutes or else you face the risk of losing your tooth.
What is a dental emergency?
If you have a dental problem that requires immediate treatment from a dentist so that your tooth could be saved, to stop tissue bleeding, or to alleviate severe pain, then you have a dental emergency. Today, you can receive immediate dental care from dentists that provide emergency services. However, not every dental problem is an emergency.
It is important to contact a 24 h dentist right away depending on the severity of your symptoms. Never wait until it is too late. You should visit an emergency dentist immediately and no later than the next day. When the emergency dentist has examined your condition, the appropriate treatment will be prescribed to you.
If you need emergency dental services, you can easily be accommodated by an emergency walk-in dentist. At Longview Family and Emergency dental Services, your dental emergency issues will be addressed. You can get adequate dental care whenever you need it. And what is great about emergency services is that you do not have to wait for regular business hours but you can just walk-in anytime you have an emergency. You can get your issues resolved when it occurs since they are even open weekends and holidays.
Common Dental Emergencies
Chipped, Cracked or Fractured Teeth
A chipped tooth that is not painful is not a dental emergency. You simply need to make a regular dental appointment for this problem. In order not to worsen the chip, make sure to be careful when you chew. Your regular dentist will be able to smoothen out the chip or else repair the tooth by adding some composite filling.
But if your tooth is cracked or fractured, then this is a dental emergency case. If your teeth are cracked or fractured, then it may be not only the outside that is damaged but also the inside of the tooth. If the fracture is severe, the tooth can no longer be saved. It is important to call your emergency dentist as soon as possible for an emergency appointment if your tooth is fractured.
Use warm water to rinse your mouth thoroughly. If the fracture is caused by trauma to the face, you can minimize swelling by applying a cold compress to the area. To alleviate pain, take acetaminophen according to package directions.
If the dentist is to properly diagnose your tooth, an x-ray needs to be taken. If the damage is done to the soft tissue inside your tooth, then a root canal is needed. If the pulp is not damaged, then you will only need a crown.
If you fall off a bike or your mouth gets hit by an elbow playing basketball, you can experience trauma where your teeth are displaced or knocked out. Appropriate steps have to be taken after your tooth has been knocked-out so that it can still be reinstated and preserved by your emergency dentist.
Pick up your tooth by the crown without touching the roots. Clean the tooth by rinsing it gently. You can try putting your tooth back into the socket. Hold it gently in place while trying to bite down. Otherwise, get a small container to put your tooth in or put your tooth in a cup of milk.
If you want to save your knocked-out tooth, you need to call your dentist as soon as possible. But if you wait longer for your knocked-out tooth to be re-implanted in its socket, your chances of being able to have your tooth back is reduced.
Loose Tooth or Misaligned Tooth
Call your emergency dentist immediately if your tooth is loose or out of alignment. You can use your fingers to try pushing your tooth back into its proper position with light pressure. Bite down to stop the tooth from moving. To keep your tooth stabilized, your emergency dentist may splint the tooth to the adjacent one.
Oral infection is another type of dental emergency. An infection can occur in the floor of your mouth, under your tongue and is accompanied by swelling around the jawline or under your mouth. This is also associated with breathing difficulty or swallowing. Immediate medical care is required for this situation since the infection from the oral cavity can travel to tissues around the heart.
Another type of infection that needs immediate care is tooth abscess. This can develop if cavities are not treated. This can cause severe toothache, facial swelling, and difficulty in breathing and swallowing. The first stage of a root canal can be performed by an emergency dentist but you can be referred to an endodontist so that the tooth can be opened and drained of the abscess.
Other oral infections give us severe pain that makes us lose sleep even after taking pain medications. This will also qualify as a dental emergency and you should see your emergency dentist immediately. However, these conditions are already advanced, and if these conditions were treated earlier, they could have not reached the point of becoming a medical emergency.
Injury to the Tissues and Facial Pain
Puncture wounds, lacerations of the mouth and cuts to the lips, tongue, mouth, and cheeks are considered an injury to the tissues and constitute a dental emergency. These injuries should be cleaned with warm water immediately. Visit your emergency dentist as quickly as possible.
To relieve the facial pain that goes with tissue injury, take acetaminophen as directed on the packaging label. Aspirin or ibuprofen should not be taken as they can cause excessive bleeding.
If you are not sure whether your condition constitutes a dental emergency or not, here are some things to consider. You might have a dental emergency if your mouth is bleeding, if you are in severe pain, if you have loose teeth, if you have been hit in the face or mouth, if you have swelling in the mouth or facial area, or if you have bulges and swelling in your gums. If any of these is true of you, then you might have a dental emergency. You should call on your emergency dentist immediately. Make sure to describe to your emergency dentist what has happened and what you are feeling.
Emergency Tooth Extraction
At Longview Family and Emergency Dental services, our emergency dentist will try to save your tooth. But sometimes it is not possible to save the tooth because of severe damage. Tooth extraction may be the only solution to this. We provide this service and other emergency dental services to those who need it.
When is a tooth extraction necessary?
Severe tooth decay. Dental plaque and tartar will build up on your tooth and if it remains untreated, it can cause tooth decay. If your tooth decay is not so severe, the emergency dentist can still save it. But if a cavity is so severe that it is not possible to repair it by filling, crown, or a root canal, then you will need an emergency tooth extraction.
Impacted wisdom tooth. When there is no room in the jaws for your wisdom tooth, the other teeth are pushed out of their way or they are left underneath the gums. You should call your emergency dentist if you feel pain in your wisdom tooth. Your wisdom tooth may be removed so as not to compromise your oral health. Impacted wisdom tooth the remains underneath the gum line can be determined with the use of x-rays.
Fractured tooth beneath the gum line. When chewing food, your teeth take up a lot of impact. Chewing could crack your molars if there is no perfect fit for your teeth when you bite down. If you just had a tooth filling or a root canal, you risk cracking your teeth. Your tooth needs to be extracted if there is a fracture beneath the gumline.
Periodontal disease. When your gum disease has progressed to periodontal disease, it is no longer reversible. Your gums and other supporting structures are attacked when you have this disease. Your gums will then recede and your teeth will have less support. Thus, there is a need for extraction or else your teeth will more likely fall out. Although periodontal disease can no longer be cured, your dentist can slow down its progression through some other dental procedures.
If there is a risk of infection in one of your teeth, it may have to be removed so that the teeth around it will not have to suffer risk as well.
The procedure for a tooth extraction will depend on the location of the tooth and the severity of the damage but if your tooth needs to be extracted, the following general procedure is followed.
Local anesthesia will be injected into the area around your mouth. This will make your mouth numb after a few minutes. Then the dentist will widen the tooth socket, rock your tooth from side to side until it is loose enough to pull out. During the procedure, you may feel a slight degree of pressure but it is not so painful at all. Make sure to tell your dentist if the procedure is causing you much pain.
Whether you need a tooth extraction or not, only a qualified dentist can tell you. At Longview Family and Emergency dental services, we give you the right treatment that you need. You can simply walk-in our clinic and we will provide you with immediate dental care. You don't need to wait for regular business hours. you can come at any time and we are even open weekends and holidays.
