Children tend to do better in the dental office when they are not tired. Therefore, we encourage morning appointments, especially for preschool aged or nervous children. One of our goals is providing dentistry that is as pleasant as possible for your child and appropriate scheduling may help us achieve this goal. Also keep in mind that a dental appointment is an excused absence from school.
When we schedule an appointment, that time is reserved solely for your child and we make every effort to see your child on time. There are times when our schedule is delayed in order to accommodate an injured child or an emergency. Please accept our apology in advance should this occur during your appointment. We will do the exact same if your child is in need of emergency treatment.
We ask that you arrive a few minutes before your scheduled time. If you are late, it may be necessary to reschedule your child’s visit. We also require a 24-hour notice for cancellations. We need this amount of time so that we may contact a child from our waiting list to offer the appointment. If we do not receive a 24-hour notice, we reserve the right to charge your account a broken appointment fee.
