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. We do everything 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 had my first dentist appointment at sunny dental care. The experience was super great, from receptionist, dental assistant, to my dentist Dr. Wong. They are all super nice and helpful. Going to dentist used to be one of my nightmares, but not anymore when I find this gem! Btw, office provide bottle water, juice, and capsule coffee. For new patient, they give you a little welcome gift as well. I'll definitely recommend it to my friends.
I was recommended this place by a coworker and I am SO psyched to have actually listened. What a joyful place for a dentist office!! That day, today, I ended up booking appointments for the fillings I had an instinct I needed. The walls are yellow, every face I met was kind, and I'll likely never go anywhere else as long as my NYC life shall live.. and as long as they keep taking my insurance. SO GRATEFUL! :)
