We recommend that children 7 and under be seen earlier in the day. We find that they tend to be less tired and more cooperative, and we can work more slowly with the child for their comfort. We are aware of school policies which make it more difficult for patients to be seen out of school for any reason. However, dental appointments are an excused absence with a doctors school pass which we=ll be happy to provide. We would like to be able to see school age children after school, however it is not always possible. Therefore to make certain everyone has a fair share of scheduling we suggest alternating after school and during school appointments. Coming LATE for an appointment may require rescheduling. We do not keep others waiting. If you are going to be late please call. If you are 15 min late your appointment will be rescheduled If for any reason you fail to come or cancel an after-school appointment at the last minute you will be rescheduled during school time. 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 if you are unable to keep your appointment. 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.
