Frequently Asked Questions
Dentistry of Wisconsin Answers Your Dental Questions!
Dentistry is a big field, and it’s understandable that patients may feel confused or overwhelmed by our available services and how we perform them.

Are you not seeing the information you’re looking for? Contact us in Waupun or Beaver Dam, WI instead so that we can assist you directly.
What makes Dentistry of Wisconsin different from other dental practices?
Our practice is truly unique for many reasons. We specialize in treating people with extraordinary needs, such as difficult, hard-to-treat dental problems. If you’ve been told that your case is very complex or involved, you’re a perfect candidate for our practice!
We purposely keep our offices small and intimate so that we can personalize our services for every patient. Since we treat people with extraordinary needs, it takes longer to develop treatment plans for each patient. That means we have more time to concentrate on you when you come in for your appointment. You’ll never feel like you’re a number or a nameless face in the crowd.
Dr. Katz, Dr. Metzger, and Dr. Truckenbrod can offer a wide range of dental services. Each of our doctors has identified areas of dental practice they particularly enjoy doing, so you’ll benefit from having all of that expertise in one single location.
We provide top-notch service, which is evident in our high level of patient satisfaction. We frequently hear from our patients just how different we are. Patients tell us that no dental practice has ever taken as much time with them or made them feel as special as Dentistry of Wisconsin.
What is a One-Day Makeover?
We know how valuable your time is, so we’ve developed a One-Day Dental Makeover that can give you a beautiful new smile in a single appointment. This service is custom designed for busy people who want and need dental work but can’t find room in their schedule for multiple appointments.
You’ll be treated in our special One-Day Dental Makeover suite, where there’s plenty of room for the doctors to work together to provide you with the finest dental care available. We’ve equipped this suite with phones and a computer with internet connection so you can check in with your office during the periods that you’re not in the dental chair. Alternatively, if you prefer to relax, you can take advantage of our massage chair, listen to soothing music, or watch a television show or movie on our TV.
We use a state-of-the-art computer system known as CAD/CAM, which allows us to create porcelain crowns, veneers, or onlays that are unique and custom-made just for you, all completed while you wait. Imagine walking into our office with multiple dental problems and walking out the same day with a beautiful, dazzling smile!
Can I call you if I have a question about my treatment?
Absolutely! We welcome calls from our patients and are always willing to take the time to talk with you. If you can prefer, you can contact any of our team members by email too.
Do you take denture patients?
Unlike many practices, we enjoy working with patients who have or need dentures. In fact, many other dentists refer their denture patients to us. Just give us a call to make an appointment.
How can dental implants help me?
Dental implants are truly a breakthrough in dental care and can change your life. You’ll be able to enjoy the foods you once loved and regain confidence in your smile. Plus, you’ll look more youthful! Please call our office for a free complimentary consultation. We place and restore dental implants in our office, and we’ll be glad to show you exactly how implants work and how they can benefit you.
What can I expect on my first visit to your office?
Your first appointment will last anywhere from 45 to 70 minutes. We’ll spend a lot of time talking so that you can get to know our practice and our philosophy, and we’ll get a chance to understand your dental concerns and desires too. Then, we’ll do a complete examination and take all necessary records. Based on everything we learn about you in this visit, we’ll make recommendations for your future dental care.
What do I do if I have an emergency?
We’re always available to help our patients if they have an emergency. Just call the office where you usually receive your care; if it’s after-hours, you’ll be given instructions on how to reach us.
Do you accept referrals?
We love referrals. Referring your friends and family is an expression of your confidence in us and makes us proud. Referrals are the highest compliments you can pay us.
