Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be a part of the Smile Design Team?

Do you want to be a part of a fun, dental team that is committed to dental excellence? Send us your resume by emailing We are always looking for skilled team members who will better our patients' experiences.

Do you see children?

Yes! Our Plano practice enjoys seeing patients of all ages, even smiles that are still growing. Our children’s dentistry services include gentle check-ups, cleanings, dental sealants, and other services that build a strong foundation for lifelong oral health. Plus, our extended office hours are great for big, busy families who are in search of convenient, patient-centered dentistry. 

How often do I need to have a dental check-up/cleaning?

For patients with generally good oral health, it’s recommended that you schedule a routine appointment every six months, or twice each year. However, if you are susceptible to tooth decay or advanced periodontal disease, more frequent visits may become necessary in order for us to help you maintain the healthy, strong smile you deserve. 

What are my options if I have missing teeth?

At Smile Design Dental, Dr. Nguyen offers several options for rebuilding missing tooth structure and helping patients regain a smile that’s confident and functional. Our team can design high-quality dental implant restorations, which are the ideal choice for tooth replacement because of their valuable health and aesthetic benefits. Traditional dentures and dental bridges are also available as reliable, cost-effective solutions.

If you’re searching for a worthwhile tooth replacement, please schedule a consultation at our Plano office. Truthfully, no service is the right fit for every single patient that walks through our door – that’s why Dr. Nguyen wants to sit down with you and help you determine what works best for your unique smile, your personal goals, and your budget.

I want to improve the way my smile looks. Can you help?

Of course! Our practice offers several cosmetic dentistry services that are designed to erase common dental flaws and leave your smile shining brightly once more. Teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, metal-free restorations, and other options are available.

Do you see emergency cases?

Yes. Please don’t hesitate to contact us right away if you or a family member is experiencing severe dental pain and/or a traumatic injury. Smile Design Dental is always open to emergency cases – in fact, we welcome walk-ins in general on a regular basis! Our evening and weekend hours are also a big help in urgent situations. Providing you with effective, convenient treatment is a top priority for our staff.

I need braces. Will I have to go to a separate doctor?

Not at all. Dr. Nguyen provides traditional orthodontic care for both adults and children right here in our Plano, TX office, allowing your family to stay with a team you already know and trust.

Will you take my insurance?

Our practice welcomes PPO insurance plans and Medicaid, as well as low-interest financing through CareCredit. If you’d like to learn more about your payment options at Smile Design Dental, please visit our new patients page.
