Our Preventive Care
Maintaining a great smile for life is a big commitment, but quality preventive care from Dr. Oshin makes it possible. Our check-ups, and other related services are designed to locate dental problems as quickly as possible, allowing us to treat them early on and protect our valued patients from significant health concerns and cosmetic damage further down the road. Your comfort and satisfaction are always our top priorities here in West Hollywood, CA! Contact us today to schedule your first appointment. Patients from Beverly Hills, The Valley, and beyond are always welcome.
Your First Visit
When you arrive for your first visit at the dental practice of Dr. Oshin, our team’s goals are to get to know you, to help you feel completely comfortable, and to learn about your chief complaints regarding your smile. We’ll introduce ourselves right away and offer you a drink like coffee, water, or apple juice. Once you’ve completed your medical history form, we’ll bring you back to the treatment room so that Dr. Oshin can talk about your concerns with you and have digital X-rays taken if necessary.
If the service needed is relatively minor, we can review the steps with you during that same appointment; if we need to create a personalized treatment plan for your unique smile, Dr. Oshin may recommend scheduling a separate visit so we can carefully review all the details and ensure that we’re making the right choice for your oral health and happiness.
Check-ups & Cleanings
Dr. Oshin recommends that patients attend at least two routine appointments at our West Hollywood practice a year, or one every six months. This allows our team to locate new developments or concerns in your smile and deal with them accordingly, saving you from more severe pain and damage in the future. We also address cosmetic issues you may have and make a plan for further treatment to correct the imperfections.
Once the evaluation is complete, patients undergo a cleaning with our talented hygienist. This gets rid of the plaque and tartar that can develop on teeth over time and cause decay, leaving your smile refreshed and polished.
Oral Cancer Screenings
While oral cancer typically occurs in patients who participate in common lifestyle factors like smoking, an alarming 25% of cases can’t be traced to a knowable factor. That’s why Dr. Oshin strongly recommends adults undergo an oral cancer screening during their routine appointments at our West Hollywood practice. We rely on Vizilite, an advanced technology that allows us to scan your mouth and locate even the smallest areas of abnormal tissue. If our team finds cause for concern, we will help you take the next steps towards a more concrete diagnosis and eventual treatment.
