Your Appointment

Appointment cancellation/rescheduling

YOUR TIME is valuable. We make every effort to remain on schedule and, except for emergency treatment of another patient, you can expect us to be prompt. If you are unable to keep your appointment or are going to be late, please notify us as far in advance as possible. This courtesy allows us to be of service to other patients.

We try our best to accommodate our patients as much as possible when scheduling appointments. We have found that children with extensive dental work or preschool children are better to be seen early in the morning when they are fresher and can have a more positive experience. Some appointments may require the child to miss some school. However, these are considered excused absences. With continued care, appointments during school can be kept to a minimum.

When you come to our office we reserve the time specifically for your child. Depending on your child, there may be a best time to schedule this appointment. The time is not always the most convenient for the parents but our goal is to give your child the best possible experience. Young children generally do better in the morning or after a nap. Please consider these factors when scheduling. Once you have scheduled this appointment, please keep your appointment unless it is absolutely necessary to reschedule. We do ask that you give us 48 hours advanced notice prior to changing your appointment so we can contact others that are waiting for this specific time. If you do not provide us with the 48hour notice, there will be a $50 cancellation fee.
