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.Please allow the following time for each appointment type:
- Initial Examination - 30 minutes
- Records, if not part of the Initial Examination – 30 minutes
- Consultation, if not part of the Initial Examination – 30 minutes
- Initial Bonding - 60 minutes
- Adjustment Appointments - 15 minutes
During the course of orthodontic treatment, it is important 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.
When an appointment has to be rescheduled for any reason, we ask that you take the next available appointment to prevent treatment delays. Because our appointments are scheduled 4 to 6 weeks in advance, we reschedule appointments on a first-come-first-serve basis. 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. If there is an opening in the schedule, we will be happy to call you.
Always schedule your next appointment before leaving the office. Waiting 1-2 weeks after an appointment before scheduling your next office visit complicates the scheduling process. Postponing appointments is a common contributor to overtime treatment.
Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.Office Hours:
- Monday – Thursday: 7:30am - 4:30pm
