Your First Visit
Your first visit to our office typically includes an X-ray that allows Dr. Eng to view the structure of the jaw, the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted, malformed roots, and tooth decay.
The initial visit also involves getting your medical history. When you share your medical history, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health. Inform Dr. Eng if you have experienced recent hospitalization or surgery, or if you have recently been ill. Also tell us the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking - whether prescription or over-the-counter products - and the name of your physician. Inform Dr. Eng of any changes in your health or medications. This information will help Dr. Eng select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.
We encourage regular checkups for individuals age four and up. Most people find that it is valuable to have a checkup at least every six months so Dr. Eng can:
Regular checkups include a thorough cleaning, polishing, and an oral exam by the doctor. During the oral exam, Dr. Eng checks the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. At each visit, Dr. Eng also checks old fillings and restorations because constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack.
Regular checkup appointments typically take 20 to 40 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
I found out about Dr. Eng while searching for a new dentist in general but also for someone knowledgable about dental appliances for sleep apnea. My last dentist had palmed me off on a 20-something year old assistant who seemed to not know how to take the molds and the dentist was uninterested in resolving the fit problems. Dr. Eng, on the other hand, is a complete joy to work with in every way. She is very pleasant, extremely knowledgable, really listens, takes her time and cares about doing quality work. Superb dentist.
Dr. End and the other dentist were very nice and professional. Dr. Eng explained a lot of things to me and helped advised me and another dentist did my cleaning. I had a great experience coming here as the dentist who did my cleaning did a great job. For years I thought I thought my teeth was a bit dirty as my previous dentist did not do a thorough job and the cleaning dentist explained that "oh its just stains". They did not half ass the cleaning like my previous dentist and I felt much more comfortable about myself afterwards. I highly recommend them as they know what they are doing and everyone is very nice.
