What can I expect during my first visit?
Meet Dr. Huang
As a new patient, you will start by meeting the doctor. He’ll then prescribe the necessary x-rays and, with the help of our hygienist, determine the type of cleaning you need.
If your general gum health is good, a regular cleaning will be suggested, which will be done on the same day with our hygienist.
If we find that your gum health is not so great, we would first complete a regular cleaning, but in addition, we would also recommend that you consider a deep cleaning, called scaling and root planning. This procedure will allow us to clean beneath the gum and remove calculus build-up, bacteria, and toxins to return your gums back to health. Local anesthesia will be provided to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
Because it's a time-consuming process, we would most likely schedule this procedure on another day for a longer appointment. After the cleaning, the doctor will return, evaluate the x-rays, and do a comprehensive exam.
We Make A Treatment Plan for You
With a thorough exam, we can make a treatment plan and we will walk you through each step of the plan to make sure you understand every detail before we move forward. Afterward, we will schedule convenient appointments to complete your treatments.
