I just knocked out my tooth. Can I go to the dentist when I’m high or will he turn me in?
Generally, you have doctor / patient confidentiality. The only way he would be likely to turn you in is if he felt like you were a danger to the public. So, I wouldn’t drive yourself there. Get one of your friends, who isn’t high, and have them drive you.
When you have a dental emergency, such a knocked out tooth, it is important you get there as soon as possible. You probably have about thirty minutes to save your tooth. Put it in a glass of milk to keep it moist and get to the dentist.
