Your first appointment with us will be a New Patient Exam. At this time, Dr. Nguyen sits down and goes over your dental and medical history along with any questions you have. After meeting with Dr. Nguyen, he will do an extensive oral exam, gum disease evaluation and oral cancer screening along with any x-rays that are not current from your previous dentist. We like to make sure that x-rays are current to ensure that we detect any restorative treatment that may be needed at the first sign of decay.
We normally do not schedule your cleaning the same day as your New Patient Exam. This is done because not everyone needs the same amount of time for a cleaning and we try to avoid long waiting times for patients.
At your New Patient Exam, you will be scheduled for your first cleaning and consultation. At this consultation, Dr. Nguyen will go over your treatment needs to help you make informed decisions. Together with Dr. Nguyen, a treatment plan will be developed that is right for you.
