Current Office Hours:

Mon, Wed, Thurs 7am-5pm

Tues 7am-7pm


  • Avoid the surgery site as much as possible. Avoid rinsing, touching, or anything that might disturb the implant.
  • Some bleeding may occur. Use gauze to stop any bleeding by simply biting on the gauze for thirty minutes. If bleeding will not stop, call our office immediately or seek assistance at a 24 hour medical care facility.
  • Swelling is normal for any surgery. To reduce swelling, simply apply an ice pack on the outside of your face (where the surgery took place) for 20 minutes every hour.
  • Take prescribed antibiotics as directed to prevent infection. Pain medications may have also been prescribed. Take those as directed too. If you have any reactions to the medications, or if the pain medications are not doing the job, call our office immediately. Severe reactions may require emergency medical treatment at a 24 hour medical care facility.
  • Keep physical activity limited for 72 hours. If bleeding starts, discontinue activity and call our office immediately.
  • When able, drink plenty of fluids. A diet of soft foods is recommended for the first 72 hours. As the surgery site heals, regular eating habits may be resumed.
  • Good oral hygiene is critical for proper healing. Anti-microbial mouth rinses may be used twice daily. Carefully brush around the surgery site, and not directly on it until healing is complete.
  • If you have any questions, or if something doesn’t seem normal, please call our office right away.
Our Patients Say:

It is so nice to come into your office…I don’t feel like I am being taken advantage of financially like many other dental offices I have tried in Oshkosh. My options have always been explained to me upfront. I am always able to schedule my appointments around my schedule. Thank you. We believe you are doing an excellent job.

I continue to come to Glacier Dental for my dental care. The care and consideration I receive from the Glacier staff could not be matched by any dental provider where I currently live.

Glacier Dental was helpful and painless! Incredibly kind staff and comfortable treatment!

Maggie Humbert, Oshkosh

I can’t say enough good things about the staff and the quality of care I experienced at Glacier Dental. From assessment to planning to treatment, Glacier easily ranks an 11 on a scale from one to ten! Way to go Glacier! I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.

Truly a positive experience. I wish more establishments treated their customers like they do at Glacier. And I have to say the most gentle cleaning I’ve had.

Tyler Fitzsimmons, Appleton

Best dentist experience I’ve had. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I felt comfortable and informed the whole time. I’d recommend them to anyone.

Curtis Peck, Neenah

I moved to Princeton but I still come to Glacier Dental because the staff is very friendly. I had some concerns about a dental procedure done by somebody else and only Dr. Steckbauer took the time to call me and listen to my concerns and help put me at ease.

Great staff, great place. Had a wonderful appointment, Dr. Steckbauer was not only caring but also very willing to explain anything I had questions about. The assistant was also fantastic she put me at ease and is knowledgeable about the procedure.
