Scheduling for You and Your Child

Since appointed times are reserved exclusively for each patient, we ask that you please notify our office 24 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment time if you are unable to keep it. Another patient who needs our care could be scheduled if we have sufficient time to notify them. We realize that unexpected things can happen, but we ask for your assistance in this regard.

We reserve the right to charge a missed appointment fee for excessive broken or missed appointments. Please remember that broken appointments affect many people not just you.

We make every effort to maintain our appointment schedule, and generally do. Occasionally, we treat emergencies (such as traumatic injuries) which demand immediate attention. Please understand that you would wish us to treat you and your child immediately in a similar situation.

We are aware of school policies that make it difficult for children to be out of school for any reason. However, please remind the schools that medical and dental appointments are excused absences.

  • The office attempts to schedule appointments at your convenience and when time is available.
  • Preschool children should be seen in the morning because they are fresher and we can work more slowly with them for their comfort.
  • School children with a lot of work to be done should be seen in the morning for the same reason.
  • Missing school can be kept to a minimum when regular dental care is continued.
  • Arriving 15 minutes late or more for any appointment may require rescheduling so other patients are not kept waiting. This is considered a broken appointment.
