Preventive Dentistry at Samuel S. Wong, DDS
At Samuel S. Wong, DDS, we take exceptional care of your oral health. Below are some of the preventive dental services that our practice provides.
Cleanings, Exams and X-raysProfessional cleanings performed by a hygienist or dental assistant are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair.
