Scheduling

Our office hours are by appointment only. We try to stay on schedule to minimize waiting at the time of your appointment. Delays to the schedule can occur and your understanding and patience are very much appreciated. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.

Children tend to do better in the dental office when they are not tired. Therefore, we encourage morning appointments, especially for pre-school or nervous children. For many children, just a simple filling at the end of a long day, when they are tired, can seem like a major ordeal. Please keep in mind, one of our goals is dentistry that is as pleasant as possible for your child. Also keep in mind that a dental appointment is an excused absence from school.

When we schedule an appointment for your child, that time is reserved solely for your child. For this reason, it is very important that you have your child in the office at the time scheduled. If you are late, it may be necessary to reschedule your child’s visit. We also have a policy that a 24-hour notice is required for cancellations. We need this amount of time so that we can contact a child from our waiting list to offer the appointment. If we do not get the necessary 24-hour notice, we reserve the right to charge your account a broken appointment charge.
