Preventative Dental Care

Dental Exams & X-Rays

To enjoy a healthy, great looking smile for a lifetime, you need to receive regular dental care from your family dentist in Woodstock. While brushing and flossing rank as the two most important habits you can perform daily to help protect your teeth from the effects of decay and disease, you need to receive regular dental care from our dentists to enjoy quality oral health.

During your first dental exam,  we will take a full set of digital x-rays and intra-oral photos that will provide us with a detailed understanding of the current state of your oral health. A thorough comprehensive oral examination and a oral cancer screening are then performed. With all the collected detailed information, our dentists can develop a customized dental treatment plan designed to help maintain and improve your oral health.

The oral health is a part of your holistic well being and it could affect the quality of life including physical health and mental health. Research has shown that patients who develop tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss have a significantly higher risk for developing a range of chronic illnesses that include heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and cancer.

Make your oral health a top priority by scheduling your next dental exam and cleaning with the team at Woodstock Smiles today!


Preventative Dental Care

Dental Sealants

Our teeth feature a number of grooves and crevices that can be hard to clean with daily brushing. For younger kids who don't have the manual dexterity or attention to detail required to properly brush and floss, these areas can become a breeding ground for the buildup of dental plaque and decay.

With dental sealants, Dr. Nguyen can effectively "seal" these areas of the mouth away from the effects of dental plaque. Using an incredibly thin and tooth colored acrylic coating, Dr. Nguyen can create a barrier on a patient's treated teeth that keeps plaque out, thereby preventing the development of cavities and decay that can permanently damage your child's smile.

Dental sealants offer an incredibly efficient and cost effective option for keeping a child's smile looking and feeling its best. Ask about dental sealants during your child's next appointment at Woodstock Smiles.

Cosmetic Dental Care

Teeth Whitening

A lifetime of eating and drinking enamel staining items like red and white wine, tomatoes, berries, etc. can cause even the healthiest of smiles to loose a little of their luster. Teeth whitening treatment is a safe and affordable option for helping patients lighten the complexion of their smiles.

As a cosmetic dentist in Woodstock, Dr. Nguyen can lighten the appearance of a patient's smile after just one in-office bleaching session. If you're tired to looking in the mirror and seeing a smile that no longer looks its best, then teeth whitening may be the solution you've been desiring.

A brilliantly bright and dazzling smile can help to dramatically boost your self-confidence. Come experience for yourself the remarkable difference teeth whitening can make by scheduling a whitening consultation today!



Cosmetic Dental Care

Dental Veneers

Made from incredibly thin piece of highly durable porcelain, our patients can be benefited from dental veneers to replicate the natural appearance of tooth enamel, while also helping to provide additional strength and resiliency to a patient's smile. Dental veneers make an ideal solution for patients looking to make changes to the size, color, or shape of their teeth.

To place veneers, Dr. Nguyen needs to first prepare patient's teeth by removing a small amount of natural tooth enamel. This provides room for your veneers so they can sit comfortably inside the mouth. Once in position, the veneers can be cemented using a high-intensity curing light to set the bond between the veneers and the teeth. Dental veneers make an excellent solution for quickly revitalizing a patient's smile.

Orthodontic Care

If you have a smile that suffers due to crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, you should consider the remarkable difference orthodontic care can make to the long-term health and appearance of your smile.

Not only does having a straight and healthy looking smile help to improve your self-confidence, it also helps to improve your long-term oral health. Crooked and crowded teeth that overlap or fit tightly together can be difficult to properly clean. This allows bacteria to buildup in these hard to clean areas that can contribute to the development of cavities, gum disease, and even permanent tooth loss.

With orthodontic care, you can revitalize the health and appearance of your smile quickly and affordably. For patients concerned about metal braces that stand out against the natural complexion of their smile, we offer clear aligner options that allow patients to complete their treatment discreetly.



Restorative Dental Care

Same-Day Dental Crowns

At Woodstock Smiles, we want our patients to enjoy a healthy, great looking smile. That's why we offer same-day dental crowns.

With same-day crowns, patients don't have to schedule multiple visits to our Woodstock dental office to enjoy a fully functional smile. Instead of needing to wear a temporary crown, patients can receive their permanent crown during their first office visit. With our in-office technology, patients can enjoy a expertly crafted crown that blends seamlessly into their natural color and complexion of their smiles.

There are, however, some unique situations that our dentists will decide same-day crowns might not be the best. Call today and talk to our doctors about same day crown is the right option for you.


Restorative Dental Care

Composite Dental Fillings

At Woodstock Smiles, we offer patients composite, or tooth-colored, dental fillings to help repair the damage done by tooth decay and cavities. Composite fillings offer a number of advantages over traditional amalgam, or metal, fillings that help to improve patient comfort and satisfaction.

Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings offer benefits that include:

  • Amalgam fillings standout from the natural color and complexion of a patient's tooth. Composite fillings are tooth-colored and blend seamlessly into your smile.
  • Amalgam fillings contain traces levels of mercury that could potentially present a health hazard. Composite fillings contain no mercury or other hazardous metal.



Restorative Dental Care

Dental Bridges

If your smile suffers as the result of missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge could make the ideal choice to help restore your oral health.

A dental bridge works to cover the gap created by missing teeth. A bridge consists of two or more dental crowns being placed on the teeth that neighbor the gap (referred to as the abutment teeth) in a patient's smile. A set of false teeth will anchor to the abutment teeth to create a bridge the covers the gap and restores the smile back to health.

A dental  bridge makes an ideal choice for patients who don't possess the necessary gum health or adequate bone structure needed for the placement of a dental implant.



Restorative Dental Care

Dental Implants

Dental implants offer patients a cost effective and lasting solution to repair a smile with missing one or more teeth. If you are missing a tooth or teeth due to dental decay, periodontal disease, or trauma, dental implants may be the right option for you.

Dental implants take the place of the natural roots of a tooth to provide a stable base for the placement of a replacement tooth. An implant is surgically placed into the jawbone. Given the time to fully heal, the implant will integrate in the jawbone to create a new base for your replacement option.

Implants can be used to provide additional support to dentures and dental bridges, or can act as a base for the placement of a dental crown. For patients looking to replace a missing tooth, dental implant is a great option to replace the missing tooth while protecting the neighboring teeth from getting damaged.

If you're considering dental implants in Woodstock, we invite you to contact our office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Nguyen and Dr Randy Otteson. 



Restorative Dental Care


For patients missing a significant number of teeth, dentures offer an incredible option for restoring your smile back to health. Missing teeth can make everything from eating and drinking to talking and laughing uncomfortable. Missing teeth also cause the face to sag, making patients appear older and less healthier than before. Most importantly, missing teeth causes a deterioration in the underlying bone structure that holds our remaining teeth in place. For all of these reasons and more, patients missing multiple teeth need to seriously consider what dentures can do to improve their health.

At Woodstock Smiles, patients can be provided with either partial or full dentures.  Partial or full dentures make a great choice for patients missing multiple teeth, and can be used along with dental implants to provide additional support. We can discuss to see if implant retained partials or dentures is a good treatment for you. Call today for a free consultation.

The health of a smile matters, and dentures offer a great choice for patients needing to rejuvenate their oral health.



Oral Surgery

Root Canal

When the roots and nerves of a tooth become badly damaged due to the effects of dental decay or disease, a root canal becomes the only option our dentists at Woodstock Smiles have for saving the tooth and preventing permanent tooth loss.

During a root canal, an  access hole is drilled into the tooth to reveal the damaged roots and nerves within. Once opened, Dr. Nguyen will proceed to clean out the tooth, remove any traces of decay, along with the pulp of the tooth. After the tooth has been cleaned , the hole will be filled with a special compound designed to help maintain the strength and integrity of the tooth. Finally, the tooth will be capped, restoring it fully to health.

Despite the unpleasant reputation a root canal, the procedure actually causes very little discomfort. Compared to the cost of a dental implant and crown, a root canal makes an affordable and lasting solution for saving a tooth severely in need of repair.



Oral Surgery

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

When a patient's wisdom teeth become impacted, they can cause a significant amount of discomfort. Not only do impacted teeth become a real pain, they often act as a breeding ground for harmful oral bacteria that accumulates in the folds and crevices that surround most impacted wisdom teeth. This accumulation of harmful bacteria can present a threat to the health of the rest of a patient's teeth.

As part of the extraction process, Dr. Nguyen will take comprehensive X-rays of your wisdom teeth. These X-rays will provide information on the severity of the problem and where the teeth are positioned. Dr. Nguyen will review your X-rays and provide the best course of recommended treatment based on your current oral health.
