Since we only care for children, it is not possible to give everyone appointments in the late afternoon. We like to reserve these times for some of the older children. Children under the age of 5 are in a better frame of mind and behave better in the morning. The best time for appointments is not after school when your child is tired of sitting and needs to be physically active. Younger children need rest at this time of day.
We prefer to see children requiring long appointment procedures in the morning. In this way, we can be fair to our patients who require shorter procedures by offering them more available times in the afternoons when the school day is over.
The appointment time is reserved specifically for your child. It is greatly appreciated if you arrive for your child's appointment on time so that we are able to spend the time with your child that he or she deserves. If you find you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, please call at least 24 hours in advance so that we may reschedule your child at a convenient time and to enable us to fill this cancellation with another patient. Broken appointments are costly both to this practice and to any children with needed dental work who could have been seen at that time. Any broken appointments will result in a charge being made for this reserved time or your child may possibly be dismissed from the practice.
