About Our Temple Dental Practice


Fossum Dental Group exists to significantly improve the dental health in the communities we serve by delivering the highest quality dental care experience, while providing great careers for all of our team members.

Philosophy of Care

We want our patients to keep their teeth for a lifetime in comfort and health. We are committed to a philosophy of dentistry which we call "Lifetime Care". Our philosophy is patient centered and we believe we can positively influence a person's quality of life through "Lifetime Care".

We should know our patients so well and care for them so much as to determine what the best treatment is for their unique needs. We will take every opportunity to motivate and educate patients to the point where they fully appreciate the many benefits of "Lifetime Care". We fully understand that not all of our patients are candidates for the Lifetime Care "approach" and that is OK. Lifetime Care is a quality approach to care.

Tobacco-Free Facility

All Fossum Dental Group offices are tobacco-free. The use of tobacco products of any kind, including cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco, etc., is not allowed at any FDG office.
