SCHEDULING appointments

We have put much effort into designing our scheduling system. Our goal is to allow you to be seen on time for your appointment, do all necessary scheduled treatments, make appointments as stress free for you as possible, and to minimize interruptions to your busy schedule.

We understand that everyone has important obligations throughout the day, and that your time is very valuable. We offer a variety of after school appointments and when we have an opening available, we are also able to schedule appointments before school.

Please allow the following time for each appointment type:

Initial Examination - 30 to 40 minutes (please arrive 15 minutes early to complete paperwork)
Records (if not part of the Initial Examination) - 40 to 50 minutes
Consultation (if not part of the Initial Examination) - 30 to 40 minutes
Initial Bonding - 60 to 90 minutes
Adjustment Appointment - 30 to 40 minutes

Cancellations and No-Shows

During the course of orthodontic treatment, it is imperative that you do not miss a scheduled appointment. Orthodontic forces must be monitored on a regular basis to insure the highest quality of orthodontic care that we can provide. We do, however, realize that some circumstances cannot be avoided, and you will occasionally need to reschedule.

In the event that you miss your regularly scheduled visit, please notify our office immediately to reschedule your appointment.

Late Arrivals

Should you arrive late for an appointment, we will attempt to treat you; however, we may not be able to complete all of the scheduled procedures. We strive to be able to see all of our patients, but you may be required in some instances to reschedule your appointment.

Rescheduling Of Appointments

When an appointment has to be rescheduled for any reason please contact us two days in advance. To prevent treatment delays we ask that you take the next available appointment. If you are unable to schedule an appointment that is convenient for you, we suggest you take the first available appointment and request that you be put on a waiting list for any cancellations.
