The office attempts to schedule appointments at your convenience and when time is available. Preschool children should be seen in the morning because they are fresher and we can work more slowly with them for their comfort. School children with a lot of work to be done should be seen in the morning for the same reason. Dental appointments are an excused absence. Missing school can be kept to a minimum when regular dental care is continued.
Since appointed times are reserved exclusively for each patient we ask that you please notify our office 48 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment time 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.
We make every effort to be on time and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. Occasionally, a young patient may require an extraordinary amount of our time or require immediate emergency care. These situations may cause delays in our schedule, but we will always try to honor your appointment time.
We always try to make your child’s dental visits as pleasant, enjoyable and fun-filled as possible. We will provide your child with toys and games, sunglasses, stereo headphones for our extensive children’s DVD movie library, “happy air” (nitrous oxide), and, where indicated, preoperative medication for anxiety. Encourage your child to bring his/her own favorite iPod or MP3 player, games, dolls, etc., to the appointment.
