Welcome To PerioClinik!

On behalf of the entire team, welcome to PerioClinik. All new periodontal and implant patients will have an in-depth initial consultation with Dr. Fokam. This will be the opportunity to review your case, uncover any unknown dental issues, and provide an expert opinion on the best treatment plan for you.

What to Expect

Medical history questionnaire

Before or the day of your 1st visit, you will be asked to fill out a medical history questionnaire. It's very important that you disclose all medical information including all prescription medication you are taking since this information can have a significant impact on your treatment.

You'll find the questionnaire in this section, you can fill it out prior to your appointment and submit it to us online. We will review it with you during your appointment and discuss any potential impact on your treatment and clarify any ambiguity. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the office during business hours for assistance or to send us an email.

Medical Questionnaire


Initial consultations typically take one hour. If more than one session is needed, we'll gladly accommodate extra time at no additional charge.

During your consultation, Dr. Fokam will speak with you at length about your oral condition, pertinent health history, and will perform an examination. Upon conclusion, Dr. Fokam will explain his findings and treatment options. You'll be given plenty of time to ask questions to help you choose the best treatment plan.

Dr. Fokam will report the exam outcomes and proposed treatment plan to your general dentist to ensure they are kept up-to-date for your best interest.

Common Questions

Our first priority is to save your natural teeth and we take every measure to do so. The recent advances in periodontal treatment allow us to successfully treat and save most teeth.

No, not usually. The periodontal exam can be completed with little or no discomfort and of course, we will be as gentle as possible. We also offer sedation dentistry if the patient needs this type of care, as well as other modern in-office relaxation procedures.

Yes, we will need current periodontal x-rays in order to see disease not otherwise visible. If your referring dentist has taken x-rays, we will request that they are forwarded to us.

Not everyone needs periodontal surgery. If treated early, gum disease can be controlled without surgery. We will make recommendations based on your individual situation. Our philosophy of practice is to treat as conservatively as possible to attain periodontal treatment goals.

Periodontal disease is a progressive, painless infection. Delay can cause you further bone loss and more expenses. If your teeth are lost, dentures are never as effective as your own teeth. However, Dr. Fokam will make sure that you fully understand your periodontal treatment options so you can make the best decision for your oral health.

Our office and your dentist will work together closely. If crowns and fillings are needed your dentist will provide them. Regular visits to your dentist are an important part of periodontal maintenance.

Since all patients are different, we must complete your examination before establishing your treatment plan and the fee for care. The fee for periodontal treatment can vary considerably depending on the type of problems, the complexity, and length of treatment. An approximate fee can usually be determined during the initial visit; but on occasion, some initial treatment or further diagnostics must be completed before the final periodontal treatment plan can be established.
