I had my full exam this month + cleaning. Dr. Chan point out what the other dentists have thought to be cavities and explained that those are merely natural tooth crevices that trapped dirt. He carefully examined the x-rays and then still looked closely at each tooth to make sure he didn't miss any problems, he was wearing those magnifiying glasses that you see on TV shows when doctors perform microsurgery. Luckily, I had no cavity, so he started to clean my teeth. He went around each tooth with it very carefully, I barely felt that tool or his hand in my mouth. He used the hook only twice on tough spots but for a mere second. My teeth feel super clean and so smooth!!! Love it.I am so glad to have found this Dr.!!! Thank you Dr. Chan for your incredible care and chair side manner!!! I'll recommend your office to anyone I know!!! highly recommend!!

Dr. Brandon Au is truly the best. I had a bad toothache a week ago. I have insurance but I was not assigned here yet. Dr. Au and his staff took me in anyway and helped me get transferred into their office same day. They were more concerned about relieving my pain than telling me to go to the office that I was assigned to. For that, thank you. Dr. Au was very professional and took the time to listen and made suggestions. He assessed the problem and took the corrective action to not only preserve the interest of my long term health but assured me it was the best option for higher probability for success. I was very impressed with Dr. Au and his staff.Don't hesitate to go to him!

After having some lousy experiences with other dentists and subsequently putting off dental care for a few years, I found Dr. Chan's office. Dr. Chan was very courteous and professional in his examination, and the office/staff were very pleasant. Unlike other offices, Dr. Chan really seemed to care about treating me well. Everything about my treatment was explained thoroughly and I didn't feel like I was being sold anything I didn't need or want. Overall I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Chan's office and I will definitely be back for my regular cleanings. I highly recommend this office!

1st and Foremost, I have known the owners for many years and have many mutual friends. They are very caring, know their dental business and provide quality service. I had inquired about braces for my daughter and provided them our insurance company. They don't take our insurance, but, are willing to work with us to meet our needs. Additionally, I had asked for a donation for a function and they generously donated to our event. Can't say enough about them! But, should you have dental service needs, contact them! Thank you New Vision Dental!

I didn't know that going to the dentist could be such a positive experience. The team here is so pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable. The office is open, inviting and clean. Dr. Au made appropriate recommendations for my treatment. I will definitely go back here again. And I feel like my dentist anxiety has been relieved by finding such a fantastic practice with excellent customer service. The attention I receive her and the level of services are exceptional.

Fabulous dentist, amazing staff, clean and modern office.Dr. Au will not upsell you and only recommend what you need.After another dentist tell me that I needed deep cleaning because my gum reading was 4-6mm, I went to New Vision Dental for second opinion. It turned out that I have normal reading of 3mm. No deep cleaning needed. You can trust Dr. Au and he will not nickel and dime you. I highly recommend this office for everyone .

Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
