"An amazing experience from start to finish- Dr. Lam knows his stuff and he was quick! My daughter had all 4 of her impacted wisdom teeth extracted with sedation and we were in and out in an hour. The staff was wonderful the assistants Amanda, Yvonne and Alli took such good care of my daughter and Amanda took time to really review after care with us so we knew what to do after. Front desk staff to the kind assistant that wheeled her out after the surgery were so pleasant and friendly. I would highly recommend this office!"- M.R. / Google / Jul 24, 2017

"A little bit of a wait, but worth it. Had four different specialist help me, and all of them were super nice and kept me informed of everything that they were doing. First time I've actually had a dentist give me a price for something and explain pros and cons before signing me up for a procedure. I felt completely informed and in control of my own treatment. Person who did my paperwork (wish I had caught her name) was awesome, showed me how to deal with insurance forms and itemized all my expenses, even told me I could come back into the office to get help with forms if I needed it. I just picked them cause they were supposedly inexpensive according to Google, and because they were in-network for me, but turned out to be a great choice!"- K.H. / Google / Jul 10, 2017

What to Expect
A thorough dental exam will start with a discussion between our dentist and the patient. We will ask about the patient's health, including any current medications, illnesses or surgeries. Our dentist will ask the patient to find out if they have noticed any oral health changes. To get a complete picture of the patient's mouth, our dentist will take digital X-rays to view the teeth, gum, and bones. A visual check of the mouth with palpation will also help in checking signs of oral decay or disease. The probing tool will be used to check the condition of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and identifying areas of recession.
If our dentists find any areas of concern during the dental consultation, they will talk to the patient about possible treatment plans that may be performed at DentalWorks - Greensboro or at the patient's home. Progress will be important so that the patient can continue to improve their dental health. If a patient has ongoing issues our dentists may suggest that he or she visit a oral surgeon or specialist.
The billing coordinators at DentalWorks - Greensboro will contact the patient's dental insurance company to consult with and confirm all out of pocket fees prior to the visit. DentalWorks - Greensboro offers payment programs to help assist with the expenses.
