Journey Towards Optimum Dental Health

During your visit to Santa Teresa Dental, Dr. Huang or Dr. Ann will conduct a thorough exam. As part of that exam, the doctor may also take digital radiographs and/or impressions (dental models) of your teeth.

From the information gathered, the doctor will discuss with you the current condition of your oral health. From there, a comprehensive treatment plan will be developed specifically for you.

Your customized dental treatment plan is a roadmap of sorts that is designed to help you achieve optimum dental health.

  • It indicates any dental health desires that you may have for the long term.
  • It provides a step-by-step plan for achieving those dental needs and desires.

Treatment Solutions include:
