Important Notice.

Dear Patient,

We trust this finds you well. As an essential healthcare provider, West Portal Family Dentistry has kept limited hours throughout the entire shelter in place order, to provide urgent care for our community. We have seen many of you, as well as, some new people from the community who needed emergency care.

We will be adding office hours starting Tuesday, May 12, 2020 and resuming normal schedule by Tuesday, June 2, 2020.

We will be returning to a “new normal” way of providing dental care, in order to ensure the safety of all our patients and staff. We have put in place enhanced protocols per CDC and ADA guidelines to accomplish this goal. We will be screening all staff and patients every day for symptoms of COVID 19. The temperature will be taken and screening questions will be asked and recorded. The reception area was reconfigured to allow for social distancing. The schedule was modified to lessen the number of people in the office at the same time. The enhanced intra-oral suctioning system will be deployed for appropriate procedures to better control aerosols. We have always followed strict OSHA guidelines for disinfecting and sterilizing surfaces, equipments, and instruments; and we will continue to do so. Enhanced PPE protocols will be used to ensure we deliver the safest possible dentistry for our patients and staff.

Please contact us via phone at 415.661.7779 or via email should you have any questions or concerns. We greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation throughout this challenging, new normal way of delivering the best possible dental care to you.

Take care and see you soon !

Dr. Terri Nguyen and West Portal Family Dentistry Team

exceptional dental care at West Portal Family Dentistry

The professionals at West Portal Family Dentistry in San Francisco, CA, believe in helping patients enjoy better oral health and wellness. There is a strong focus on preventative dental care, to help patients avoid serious concerns later. When patients take good care of their smiles at home every day, they enjoy the benefits of a healthier smile. Drs. Terri Nguyen and Laura Huynh work with children and adults to teach them about the importance of quality dental care.

What are good oral health habits?

Some of the best ways to maintain a healthy smile include:

  • Brushing after every meal
  • Flossing at least twice a day
  • Scheduling regular cleanings and examinations

While many patients brush and floss every day, many fall behind in maintaining their regular dental appointments at their family dental office. Sometimes this happens due to dental anxieties, while other times it may be an issue with time or money. At West Portal Family Dentistry, we want to ensure our patients see us regularly to keep their smiles healthy and avoid problems such as periodontal disease and cavities. We encourage patients to book their 3 ,4, or 6-month appointments in advance to ensure they are on the calendar and are made as a serious commitment. Regular dental visits can greatly reduce the likelihood of oral health concerns.

Schedule a consultation today!
