How do I schedule an appointment?
To schedule an appointment that meets your scheduling needs, please call our friendly staff at 909-592-1432.
What if I need to reschedule an appointment?
Please call Glendora Dental Arts as soon as your plans change to reschedule your dental appointment. If you cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice, a missed appointment fee will be charged. By giving us advance notice, the provider can try to schedule another patient for that time.
What can I expect at my first visit?
During your first visit to our office, you will receive a thorough dental examination that includes X-rays and comprehensive risk assessments. Dr. Lee will develop a Personal Dental Care Plan based upon your immediate needs, current dental health and long-term oral health goals. This individual plan will include recommendations for cleanings, restorations and preventive treatments. Most patients will receive a cleaning at their first visit, based on the assessment and recommendation from Dr. Lee.
How many cleanings should I get in a year?
People with healthy teeth and gums should get two routine cleanings a year. However, oral hygiene should be maintained on a daily basis with proper brushing and flossing (twice a day for two minutes!).
If you are at high risk for gum disease, Dr. Lee may recommend a cleaning as often as once every three months. If you have great oral health, scientific studies show that two routine cleanings per year is optimal for you. It comes down to an assessment of your specific needs.
Can I get major work done right away?
Dr. Lee’s first priority is to diagnose and treat any urgent conditions that pose an immediate threat to your oral health. Our next priority is prevention, which means controlling the disease process, promoting wellness, and helping you maintain good overall oral health. This is important to make sure that any major restorative work is successful in the long term. Once you have achieved a satisfactory state of oral health and your teeth and supporting structures are stabilized, then we can proceed with major restorative work that builds on this healthy foundation.
