Late Arrivals

We respect your valuable time and do our best to run on schedule. To serve each patient in a prompt and efficient manner, we ask that you arrive on time for your appointment. If you are late for an appointment, we ask that you see one of our front office staff members to determine if you can be rescheduled the same day or if you will need to be rescheduled to another day.

Missed Appointments

Successful orthodontic treatment requires a series of scheduled appointments throughout treatment. It is in the patient’s best interest to reschedule a missed appointment as soon as possible. Please contact our office immediately and we will work with you to reschedule missed appointments at our earliest convenience.

Rescheduling

We understand that schedules change and we will do our best to accommodate our patients’ busy schedules. Please call our office as soon as you know that you are going to have to reschedule your appointment.
