Anytime that you have an orthodontic emergency, call our regular office phone number (256-882-6000). An answering machine will provide information of when we will be back in the office and how to get in touch with the treatment staff member on call. She will ask you questions which will help her determine whether your emergency can be handled over the phone to save you a trip to the office. If the treatment assistant feels that Dr. Limbaugh is also needed to resolve the emergency, she will call to update her and then meet you at the office. FOR TRUE EMERGENCIES, WE ARE AVAILABLE 24/7.
