Parents often ask questions like this while trying to plan their weeks, factoring in the drive time for the appointment.
Generally, routine exams and cleaning appointments are 30 minutes. Sometimes those appointments veer a little closer to an hour, depending on setup times and how cooperative the child is.
Restorative treatments, such as fillings, usually take an hour.
