Your First Visit


Seattle Dental Implants & Prosthodontics – Seattle, WA

We understand you may feel anxious about visiting the dentist’s office. As our mission statement states, we are sensitive to your needs not only dentally but emotionally as well. We would like you to feel like you are at home in good hands.

YOUR FIRST VISIT IS ALL ABOUT YOU!   We spend good amount of time to get to know you better. You can express your feelings or anxiety with your previous dental experience. We want to know about your medical history, family history and everything you want to share with us. We do appreciate your active participation in this process. We can better serve you when we know more about you.

Comprehensive oral evaluation is given as the next step. It includes extra-, intraoral cancer check, lymph nodes check, masticatory muscles and joint palpation, existing restoration recording and current status assessment. Often full periodontal charting is done at the same visit. Full mouth radiographs may be obtained to help us make an accurate diagnosis. If you have radiographs taken from your previous dentist’s office, please have them transferred to our office in advance.

We respect your time schedule. Please prepare about an hour for your first visit with Dr. Chung.
