Check-up and Cleanings:
We have 3 full-time hygeinists for all of your cleaning needs. An average cleaning appointment is scheduled for 45 minutes to 1 hour. It also includes a medical history update, x-rays when needed, and an examination with Dr. Osborn. Children may also have a fluoride treatment, when due.
