At River Run Dental located within close proximity to Short Pump, VA there is some of the best places to eat if you are hungry after visiting the dentist! Depending on what you are in the mood for, we can almost be certain that within a 10 to 15 minute drive there is something that would work for you and your taste buds.
Things to Consider:
At the dental office, we understand that some procedures may take longer than others, which might make you hungry once you leave. However, depending on the procedure or what you had done at the dentist will determine what type of foods you are able to eat following. For example, if you had to have an extraction done, we would like to remind you that you should only stick to eating soft foods at least 24 hours after the procedure. On the other hand, if you had a root canal or a mouthful of fillings, do be aware that your mouth may be tender for a while and eating something terribly chewing might cause some mild discomfort. If you only had a cleaning, feel free to eat whatever you wish (after 30 minutes if you received fluoride)!
Where to Eat:
Since River Run Dental is so close to large shopping centers, this means that we are close to great food spots.
Across Highway 250 from our office, there are awesome places like BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse, Plaza Azteca, Carytown Burgers and Fries, Pho 1 Grill, and Kanpai.
