Wow what a experience. They were quick to get me in but had to wait 20 mins past my appointment time. Office is very nice. All the employees (team members) are on the same page. The only problem is that page is not focused in the right area. While sitting in the chair I can here them talking about needing 1000 dollars to hit "goal". They took xrays, and the quickest pocket check I have ever had. I have been faithful with my dental visits my whole life and don??t even have any cavities. I am a medical resident at Scott and White so I know the importance of proper health care. After this quick check I was told I had perio disease and needed scaling and root planing and antibiotics. Cost for treatment 600 dollars. Haven??t even seen the Dentist yet! Diagnosed by the Hygienist. The pockets were 2's and 3's then 4's in the back quads. I have had perio checks before but never had a concern, and only received regular cleanings. I politely told them I would wait on that cleaning. They seemed disgusted that they weren??t able to convert me that day. The Doctor came in, although pleasant, spent about 4 minutes with me and could not find any other problems. I did not ask him to recheck the probing. I left the office without a cleaning and went around the corner to Phil Davis and had the best experience I could have. They had a great staff and the office is amazing. No high pressure sales and what do you know, no perio problems. Never would have thought that walking into a dentist office would be like walking into a car dealership. Stay away from anything that has Fossum on it.

I called the office with a broken tooth and they were able to see me that day. Dr. Fossum told me about a new process where they could make the cap for me that day. They were so professional and caring!
They helped me with my insurance and gave me a no interest company for my payments.

I am going back in a few weeks to get a check up and cleaning and actually looking forward to it!

All I can say is watch your wallet very closely if you go there. They try to sell you things you do not need and get billed for something extra that you did not receive.
