We recognize that most of our patients have obligations during the day, usually involving work or school. When orthodontic treatment begins, some of your appointments may conflict with work or school schedules. One of our goals is to have as few of these inconveniences as possible. To help us achieve our goal, we have devoted considerable time and effort to establishing the following scheduling guidelines.
Short Appointments : The majority of our appointments will be approximately 30 minutes. These appointments are scheduled throughout the day.
Long Appointments : Appointments requiring more than 30 minutes are scheduled from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. This way, the entire afternoon is not committed to one or two patients. Instead, we are able to accommodate as many families as possible.
Emergency Appointments : Our goal is to accommodate you as soon as possible based on the urgency of the situation. If you have a problem with your appliances, please call the office before you
come in. This will allow us to assess the problem and determine the
appropriate amount of time needed for our visit. Should you have any
discomfort after hours or on weekends, you can contact the doctor
by calling the office phone number.
Late Arrival & Rescheduled Appointments : We realize that once in a while, unforeseen circumstances arise which may cause you to change or overlook your appointment. We will do our best to reschedule your visit as soon as possible
