It’s 2017 and your New Year’s resolution was to try new things. So, you joined the It’s Always Sunny in Culver City Adult Kickball Team. You’re stoked to be at the field for the first official game – you even bought some trendy new knee pads to be in style while you show off your athletic abilities. The coach stations you at first base, right where all the action is. Things are going well until suddenly, a rogue ground-ball bounces – hard – and catches you right in the mouth. Getting your wits about you, you wipe your mouth and see blood. Your tongue searches for what’s wrong – oh no! You’re missing a tooth! You find your tooth on the ground and rush to the sidelines. Your entire team grabs their phones to search for an emergency dentist in Los Angeles. You’re in luck – Dr. Les Latner at Westside Dental Associates is right up the road and can see you right away.
