What to Expect
Dr. Sang’s work is centered around the in-depth attention and care he gives his patients. He believes in treating the “masticatory system” of his patients to help create a more harmonious relationship between the joints, muscles, and teeth. Each patient has unique needs to obtain optimal oral health and he will work closely with you to achieve your desired results. Your first visit will consist of a 90-minute appointment where you will receive a comprehensive exam, full set of radiographs, joint analysis, oral tissue evaluation, oral cancer screening, and smile analysis.
