Going to the dentist may not be everyone’s favorite activity, but it is essential to maintaining good oral health. One of the most important things you can do for your teeth is to schedule regular dental exams. These exams are typically recommended every six months, and they are an opportunity for your dentist to evaluate your oral health and identify any potential issues before they become more serious.

So, what exactly is included in a comprehensive dental exam? Here are some critical components you will experience at Engineered Smiles in Marietta, GA.

Medical & Dental History Review

Before your exam, Dr. David C. Wang will review your medical and dental history. This is important because certain medical conditions and medications can affect oral health. He will also explore your dental history, including past procedures, cavities and other factors.


X-rays are a critical part of any dental exam. They allow Dr. Wang to see the structures inside your teeth and jaw that are not visible during a visual exam. X-rays can identify cavities, gum disease and other issues that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Visual Exam

During the visual exam, Dr. Wang will check your teeth, gums, tongue and other oral tissues for signs of disease or damage. They will look for cavities, gum recession and any abnormalities that could indicate oral cancer or other serious conditions. Oral cancer is a severe condition that can be life-threatening if not caught early.

Professional Cleaning

A thorough cleaning is an essential part of any dental exam. Our dental hygienist at Engineered Smiles uses special tools to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gum line. They will also polish your teeth to remove surface stains and give you a fresh, clean feeling.

Bite Analysis

Dr. Wang will also evaluate your bite during your dental exam. He will look for any misalignments or abnormalities that could cause problems with your jaw or teeth, especially if you complain of jaw pain, headaches or other developments since your last exam.

Custom Treatment Plan

Dr. Wang will discuss any issues he identifies during your dental exam and work with you to develop the most effective treatment plan to address them. This may include more frequent cleanings, modifying your home oral care routine, certain medications, fillings, crowns or other restorative treatments.

Your comprehensive dental exam at Engineered Smiles is a critical part of your overall oral care plan that should not be neglected. Summer is a great time to get caught up while school is in recess and your family enjoys more free time.

Contact Engineered Smiles today to schedule your family’s comprehensive dental exams. We can help ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy and prevent more serious issues from developing.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Jean R.

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    Sanjay P.

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
