Healthy Mouth Tips

Dr. Kenneth Cho Dentistry wants you to know that we understand you may be confused and unsure of what to expect during this COVID-1 pandemic. Our team is here to assist you and provide you with accurate and updated information along the way. From local closures to rescheduled appointments, it has been a time of confusion for all. But, it is important that we all work together so that we can prevent the spread of the virus and resume normal life soon.

Is My Appointment Affected?
It depends on the type of appointment that you had scheduled with us. All dental offices and businesses were told to place all non-essential procedures and non-essential business on hold until April 30th. Now that the time has passed, dental offices can resume normal operations or stay on an emergency-only basis. It is important to know that if you visit our La Habra, CA office during this time, all CDC guidelines will be followed, and we practice social distancing.

If you have a schedule appointment with us, please give us a call to find out if we can keep your appointment or if we need to reschedule it.

Dental Emergency: What Is It?
It can be hard to determine what a dental emergency is because if you experience pain, it may seem like an emergency to you. We recommend that all appointments that are NOT emergencies be rescheduled to protect everyone’s health during this time.
Below, we will talk more about what is and is not considered a dental emergency during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have any questions, please call Dr. Kenneth Cho Dentistry.

Dental Emergency – You NEED to Come in For

  • Pain in a single tooth, multiple teeth, or your jaw
  • Gum infections with pain and swelling
  • Broken or knocked out tooth
  • Braces that are broken or shifted and causing pain
  • Bleeding that will not stop
  • Painful swelling in or around the mouth
  • Post-care after a surgical dental procedure
  • Abnormal results from a biopsy
  • Denture adjustments for cancer patients

Non-Dental Emergency – You Do NOT Need to Come in For

  • Routine orthodontic or cleaning visits
  • Extraction of teeth that are not painful

Great Office!

New patient for examination and cleaning: Arrived early 11:48 am for 12:00pm appointment, had paperwork filled out by 12:01, called to the back at 12:16. Had full x- rays, photographs -in my opinion unnecessary - and a panoramic x-ray - which was a bad image as the bottom half of the image was obstructed by the lead apron. The dentist exam included deep poking of gums to check for gum pockets, heavy hands noted toward the back teeth which resulted in bleeding - I brush and floss regularly and never bleed from flossing, however, dentist recommendation was “gum treatment, ” which is essentially a deep cleaning under local anesthesia in all 4 quadrants, this is not fully covered by the insurance, I was quoted $600 out of pocket. I declined stating “I will not pay that.” The regular cleaning was not performed as I declined the deep cleaning, no other option. Just felt like the deep cleaning should be reserved for people with symptomatic gum disease, including symptoms such as bleeding or red gums - both of which I do not experience. I’m definitely getting a second opinion and recommend always getting a second opinion if a dentist readily “recommends” a “gum treatment” on the very first visit, which may be unnecessary and lead to unwarranted invasive treatment with possible complications.

Great Dentist!

Great personal care

Dr. Kenneth Cho is a dentist that we trust. My family and I have been going to his office for 20+ years. He was the first dentist for both of my children (now collage age), and they still go to him. He can take care of every need for oral health including braces. No need to go from place to place, and everyone in the office is friendly and helpful.
