Utah County Emergency Dentist

Haven’t we all experienced an unfortunate knock on the door from Murphy? Yup, we mean the famous Murphy—the one from Murphy’s law. “Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong” when Murphy is around, and usually it will go wrong at the least convenient time possible!

Here at Cougar Dental We understand that life gets busy. We also know that dental emergencies usually don’t happen between the hours of 9 and 5. It seems like teeth always start to ache at night or on a Saturday when no dentists are open. As the top emergency dentist in Utah County, Dr. Matthews, his associates and staff work six days a week waging war on Murphy. Our office offers extended hours and Saturday appointments to help you kick the scoundrel to the curb. Our goal is to help you to achieve a totally healthy mouth and keep you out of pain.

Friendly and Reliable Staff

“The work you guys did was miraculous. I got 4 wisdom teeth out, but had no swelling or pain, or even irritation at all. I am completely floored by your work and am so grateful for your service. Seriously, I can not thank you enough. You guys deserve a moon crater named after you, or something equally impressive and permanent!”

– Carol A.

Let us help you get the sparkle in your smile!

“It’s not possible to say enough about the people at the AIE Institute. They have helped me to bring my dentistry to the next level. My surgical skills have improved dramatically, and they have given me the tools I need to be the best implantologist possible.”

– Dr. Zachary Grillo
