Every body were amazing the front desk ladies,the dental assistant and the dentist Dr Richard very knowledgeable and easy to deal with,very reasonable prices for an outstanding service.

Had a horrible experience at this clinic. They are more like a money making business instead of treating patients. Charged for excessive "needed" procedures that other dentists do not. The actual dentist spent less than 3 minutes talking to the patient. Avoid at all costs.

I love the staff. They are helpful and friendly. Deborah is awesome and makes the visit fun. It's like I'm visiting a friend rather than a hygienist.

I found Dr. Fossum through a listing of dentists that accepted my dental insurance plan. After moving than 30 years with the same dentist this was a big change when I moved to Temple. I like the dentist himself, as well as his staff. All are very congenial yet professional. He is in a convenient location. For those, that may have "dentist anxiety" I think you find the office a pleasant and inviting surrounding and the staff are very adept at making you feel comfortable, in my opinion.
