First-time patients will need to arrive about 10 minutes early to complete their necessary paperwork and medical forms. To make the first visit an easy process please bring any recent x-rays or scans along with a letter from your referring dentist. We will also appreciate if you can bring a list of current medications you are currently taking.
During the Exam
The initial appointment for all new patients lasts about 45 minutes. During the appointment, Dr Teck Tang (Periodontist) will carry out a comprehensive periodontal exam, take any necessary X-rays to measure for bone loss, loose teeth, bite, and other signs of periodontal disease. Dr Tang will discuss treatment plans and provide a detailed treatment plan report to the referring dentist.
Same-day dentistry is available. Contact our practice today to request an appointment.
