Dr. Yum and staff are dedicated to providing you with a pleasant visit and results. We know that going to a new health care provider can be stressful. We believe the choice of a dental office is very personal and extremely important; we are honored that you have chosen us. We strive to make your first visit with us as comfortable, informative, and comprehensible as possible.
Your initial appointment will consist of reviewing you post medical and dental history and noting any concerns or questions you may have. The consultation process includes explaining your diagnosis and treatment options based on findings from comprehensive exams such as a head and neck exam, oral cancer screening, TMJ (jaw joint) evaluation, periodontal or gum condition, and checking all old dental restorations. We will take intra-oral photos as well, so you can see your teeth and any dental conditions close up. We will correlate any findings on your x-rays to our clinical findings in your mouth. Any conditions such as grinding, clenching, and snoring will also be reviewed.
At Redmond Dental Care practice the focus is primarily on tooth retention. In many cases natural teeth are the most beautiful teeth. Working without hygienists, you will learn to be the first line of defense against tooth decay and periodontal disease, giving you a great opportunity for excellent long-term dental health.
