“Like my sister, I love being a dentist!” – Dr. Minh Bui

Dr. Minh Bui (Dr. Minh) was inspired to become a dentist by her older sister, Dr. Quynh Bui. Dr. Minh graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Brandeis University in Waltham, MA, then followed her older sister to Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. While in school, you would often spot her assisting Dr. Quynh Bui during her school breaks.

Dr. Minh enjoys working alongside her sister at their practice and continuing to provide the excellent care patients have come to expect at Rockingham Pediatric Dental. In order to provide the best care, Dr. Minh attends multiple continuing education courses and meetings each year to stay current on the latest dental techniques and technology. When not at the Rockingham office, Dr. Minh loves watching quiz shows, baking sweets, and chasing after her nieces and nephews in the yard.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How Often Do I Need to See the Dentist?

Most healthy individuals should visit the dentist twice a year, typically every six months. These visits are for regular dental exams and cleanings. There are plenty of reasons, however, that it may be suggested to see the dentist more frequently. These include but are not limited to, being a smoker, being pregnant, or having a disease such as cancer, diabetes, or heart disease. The dentist will figure out an appropriate schedule based on your dental and other health needs. Keep in mind that simply because you receive a good report one visit, that does not mean you should delay your next one! Dental problems can easily develop from one visit to the next, so the best way to stay on top of your dental health is to maintain regular visits!

Why Do I Need to Have Dental X-Rays?

Sometimes patients may question whether they truly need x-rays at their dental visit. Even if everything feels fine, there could be problems developing such as cavities, bone loss, or even infection that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Dental x-rays help the dentist identify these potential problems. Basic checkup x-rays are recommended at least once a year to detect decay, and more comprehensive full-mouth or panoramic x-rays are routinely recommended for every three to five years. Our office uses modern digital x-rays, providing clear images with minimal radiation. Click here to read more about dental X-Rays.

What Should I Do if I Have Anxiety at the Dentist?

We understand that unfortunately, fear of visiting the dentist is rather common. If you are concerned about your level of anxiety, do not hesitate to let us know! We will work with you to alleviate your fear, starting the treatment slowly and gently, making you aware of each step before we continue. An informed patient often ends up a calmer patient! Your fears should not prevent you from getting the care you need. For patients with severe anxiety, we do offer Nitrous Oxide sedation as an option as well.

Which Is the Best Way to Floss My Teeth?

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends flossing once a day. The time of day to floss is really up to personal preference, as long as it can be accommodated into your schedule. The ideal length of dental floss to use is about 18 inches long. The length should be wrapped around the thumb and index finger, with about 1 to 2 inches of floss in between to floss the teeth. Hold the floss taut and place it in between two teeth. Then proceed to gently glide the floss up and down, rubbing against the sides of the tooth. Take care not to move the floss into your gums, as they can become scratched or bruised. As the floss approaches your gums, curve the floss at the base of the tooth into a “C” shape. This makes it easier for the floss to reach the space between the gums and your tooth. Repeat these steps with each tooth. It’s best to move to a new, clean, section of floss for each tooth.
