It is completely true that many people dread going to the dentist, so they’ll put it off for too long or just not go at all without realizing the long-term damage that can be happening as a result. Cavities, gum disease and worse can all be the result of avoiding your dentist. Dr. Terri Nguyen wants to stress the importance in scheduling a visit with her at West Portal Family Dentistry in San Francisco, CA so that she can perform an exam (cleanings are also a great idea) and then, based on what she sees, formulate a long-term dental plan that will ensure you retain optimal oral health moving forward.
Dr. Nguyen encourages all residents of the San Francisco, CA area to come in for an exam. West Portal Family Dentistry offers an experience that minimizes any stress or discomfort when at all possible.
