How can we help you?
At AllDent Dental Center, we are deeply committed to patient education, and we encourage questions about our services and procedures. We are pleased to offer a selection of some common questions about the care we provide. If your question is not answered here, please feel free to ask Dr. Chung or your dental hygienist.
The team at AllDent Dental Center recommends that you come to see us at least twice a year for an examination by Dr. Chung and professional cleaning from one of our experienced and gentle dental hygienists. Regular professional cleanings are necessary as they clean up plaque and buildup that your everyday oral routine may not be able to remove. Yearly dental exams also allow our team to monitor your dental health. This way, we can catch any potential problems early and before they start to cause you pain.
Our Office is Here to Help in Poway, CA
In addition to these cleanings, it is also important to book an appointment if you are feeling any type of oral pain or discomfort. Even if you just have questions about oral health habits, want to look into cosmetic dentistry, or have questions about insurance, our 92064 dental office is here to answer your questions.
Dental Insurance Plans We Accept
At AllDent Dental Center, we accept most PPO insurance plans. On our Insurance & Financial Information page, you can find a list of plans that we accept.
Because dental plans vary a great deal as to which services they will cover and to what extent, the best way to find out if a specific procedure is covered and how much the insurance company will pay is to call your insurance provider and ask them directly.

Crucial Steps to Healthy Teeth
Flossing your teeth is a crucial part of good oral hygiene and preventing gum disease; however, using good technique is just as important. Follow these steps every time you floss for the best results:
- Begin with about a foot and a half of floss.
- Wrap one end of the floss (loosely) around each middle finger. You should have about 1 to 2 inches left in the middle to work with.
- Use your thumbs and forefingers to hold the floss tightly and gently slide it up and down the inner surface of your tooth.
- The floss should slide smoothly in between your teeth and up into the gum line. Be very careful that you don't snap the floss or try to work too quickly. You could injure your gums.
- When you switch teeth, unwind the floss a bit so that you are always working with a clean segment.

The Importance of Preventive Dental Care
Preventing dental problems is always easier than treating those problems once they have occurred. Brushing and flossing are easy habits to develop, and they are the best prevention against gum disease, which is uncomfortable and can lead to tooth loss. Many dental conditions are very painful, and may cause permanent damage to your smile. Gum disease and other dental issues have also been linked to serious health conditions like heart disease and diabetes. Caring for your teeth is an important part of your overall health care.
