For your first visit please expect a small amount of paperwork to complete your chart at the office. This information includes filling out information on your medical history. Since oral health and overall health are closely related, Dr. Vuong will evaluate your medical history and discuss any details of how your medical history affects your oral health. While you are filling out your paperwork please feel free to a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.
The first visit includes a series of xrays that will detect any oral health concerns such as cavities or infections. An intra oral camera is also used to further educate you on your oral health. While these xrays and pictures are being taken you can enjoy watching your favorite television episode or movie.
Dr. Vuong then evaluates the xrays and pictures for your new patient comprehensive exam. She completes her intraoral and extraoral cancer exam and exam of your teeth, gums, and bones. After her thorough exam she educates you on any problems you may have. She also addresses any concerns and questions. After the exam is complete a cleaning that is tailored specifically for you will be completed.
