We appreciate your promptness in arriving for your child’s dental visit. We reserve a specific time for your child according to their dental needs and level of cooperation. Middle and high school children are given priority for late afternoon appointments. We request that children in preschool and primary grades be scheduled early in the day when they are more rested, alert and more receptive to treatment. Please be aware that in a practice limited to the care of children, all treatment cannot be done after school hours because they are limited and in high demand. It may be necessary for your child to miss school for their dental appointment. We realize that occasionally this may inconvenience some parents, but it is the child we must always consider. Dental appointments are excused absences from school and we will gladly provide a school excuse form for your child.
We value your time and will do our best to remain on schedule throughout the day. We do ask that you please remember that each child in our office is an individual and some may require more patience and “TLC” than others. We also experience the occasional emergency, which may cause delays in our scheduling. We ask for your patience and that you please keep in mind that your child may be the next one needing our extra attention.
As a courtesy, our office will attempt to contact you for confirmation 1-2 days prior to your child’s appointment. However, we do ask that the parents/guardians assume responsibility for their child’s appointment time. Your cooperation in making and keeping appointments is essential. No Charge will be made for rescheduling your appointments provided 48 hours notice is given. Your child’s time can then be given to another patient in need of dental care. Repeated missed appointments of any kind or short term cancellations (within 24 hours) without proper notification may be subject to a charge and/or dismissal from our practice.
