Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your health!
During your first visit, we will address your most urgent concern or what you want to have done on this day. This can be having an exam and check-up, simple cleaning, a tooth pain, a broken tooth, or sensitive tooth or teeth, swelling, abscess, second opinion, or just check out the office to see if it is clean or if you like the doctor or staff . Yes, it is about your dental health and what you like to take care of first.
We begin with reviewing your medical and dental history. Most of the time we need to take X-rays of your teeth and some photos after doing a clinical exam to make a correct diagnosis. Then Dr. Nguyen will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan and answer any questions that you may have.
After a clinical exam, we talk with you about our findings and the options for correcting any issues. During this discussion, we place an emphasis on patient education and encourage you to ask questions before creating a treatment plan. We also encourage patients to seek a second opinion if they have any concerns about the proposed treatment. We want every patient to be an informed advocate regarding their oral healthcare process.
