Please allow 90 minutes for your initial visit. During your new patient visit, we will review your medical and dental history, take the necessary x-rays and intraoral photographs, complete a complimentary oral cancer screening, and examine your teeth. If time permits, your cleaning will be completed at this visit as well. Based on your information and x-rays, Dr. Fossum will then talk with you about a treatment plan that best meets your needs and goals.
REGULAR SIX-MONTH CHECKUPS ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF KEEPING YOU AND YOUR SMILE HEALTHY.
According to the American Dental Association you should have regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings every six months to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
An average appointment can range between 40 and 90 minutes pending the type of cleaning, so don’t forget to consider this when scheduling an appointment. We know you’re busy, too.
