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 !

Dentures restore normalcy to San Francisco lives

Best Dentures restore professionals in San Francisco Losing your teeth can sap enjoyment from life. Without teeth, facial muscles sag and bone deteriorates, making you look older. Your diet suffers, and it becomes difficult to communicate clearly. The dentists at West Portal Family Dentistry take pride in creating dentures that fit securely and look natural; helping San Francisco patients enjoy renewed quality of life.

Full dentures

A full denture replaces an entire arch of teeth, either upper or lower (or both). Our dentures are custom crafted for comfortable fit and attractive appearance. We also handle extractions to prepare for dentures. Expect to be on a soft food diet for several months to allow tissues to heal completely before your new dentures are inserted.

Partial dentures

A partial denture is a good option if you are missing numerous teeth, but the remainder of your smile is healthy. The partial denture fits around and gains support from natural teeth.

Specialized dentures

Today’s denture wearer has more options than ever, including implant-supported dentures. Dr. Nguyen is a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and is experienced in all phases of implant planning and placement. Just a few carefully placed dental implants dramatically increase the stability and comfort of a full denture. Dr. Nguyen can design a brand new, lightweight denture for this purpose, or retrofit your existing denture with attachment points.

Immediate dentures are a great solution for the patient who doesn’t want to be without teeth for even a day. These dentures are made in advance. They are inserted immediately after extractions, and help to protect the mouth as it heals. Dental implants may also be placed at the time of extractions.

We want to help you enjoy smiling, laughing, talking, and eating again; and like what you see in the mirror! Call (415) 604-9292 to learn more about options in dentures, at West Portal Family Dentistry in San Francisco.
