What should I expect at my first visit?
In most cases when you come in for your first appointment, we will take a set of the appropriate x-rays and conduct a comprehensive examination of the inside of your mouth as well as the head and neck.
Dr. Yuchen Sheng will talk to you about any specific concerns you might have and your desired outcomes. She will also go over any questions you might have regarding your oral care. After examining the x-rays, she will review her initial findings and go over any recommended treatments.
You can expect your initial appointment to take about one hour. Please allow an extra 15 minutes for valet parking and the security check-in as you enter the building, as well as filling out your paperwork. To save time, you can also download the paperwork from this site, fill it out ahead of time, and bring it with you to your appointment.
If your schedule allows for a longer appointment, you may be able to schedule your hygiene visit on the same day.
For patients with complex dental conditions, such multiple missing teeth, have had extensive dental treatment in the past, or are interested in a smile makeover, we may take photographs as well as the traditional dental radiographs. You will be invited to come back to review those records and treatment options at no additional cost!
If you are coming in with a dental emergency such as a toothache or broken tooth, we will invite you in for a limited exam and provide palliative treatment on that same day, if possible.
