Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nguyen "Education & Prevention As a practice, we believe that prevention and education are keys to optimal dental health. That's why we emphasize on a thorough examination – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer screenings, and taking x-rays when necessary.  We also recognize that routine professional cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease.  Not only are we focusing on the beauty of your smile, we are also concerned about your overall health.  There are certain medications and medical conditions that can affect your dental treatment.  A review of your medical history will help us stay up-to-date with your overall health.

Uncompromising Safety At Redwood City Smile, we take Infection control very seriously.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we employ the most current sterilization procedures to prevent any cross contamination.  We follow guidelines given by the American Dental Association (ADA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and Center for Disease Control (CDC) to insure the safety of our patients and staff.

A Positive Experience Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as unique individuals is vital to our success.  We understand how uneasy, nervous, or tense some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a soothing and positive experience.  Our entire team is committed to providing you with personalized care and service to make your visit as comfortable and pleasant as possible.We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.Come see us today…we will give you a reason to smile!"
