Dental emergencies. Chances are, we’ve all had one, or will at some point in life. Whether it’s a loose filling, chipped tooth or painful infection, sometimes even when we think we’re on top of our oral health, these problems can take us off guard. And while it’s bad enough to have a dental emergency on a busy work day or what should have been a relaxing Saturday afternoon, it can be even worse (and scarier!) to have one while vacationing abroad.

If you or someone you love is planning a trip abroad this spring, check out these tips for finding a safe emergency dental provider in a foreign country.
