We encourage all children under age 6, or children who will receive extensive dental treatment, to be seen in the morning hours as this will maximize their comfort and cooperation.

Kindly provide us with a 48-hour notice if you need to cancel the appointment. This will allow us enough time to schedule another patient who is in need of an appointment time. Failure to show at a previously scheduled appointment will incur a no-show fee. Please call and advise us that you can’t make it to an appointment to avoid that fee.

Please call ahead if you will be late to the appointment so we may advise you of the doctor’s schedule, and possibly reschedule if needed.

While you are in the office, please observe the rule of “only one family member in the treatment room”. Please take extra care to watch other siblings, especially the younger ones, and prevent them from wandering around the treatment area. Please refrain from feeding accompanying siblings while you are in the treatment room. Also please keep cell-phone usage to a minimum while you are in the treatment room.

Occasionally, due to an unscheduled emergency visit, or a child needing extra attention, we may run late and ask you to wait. We appreciate your understanding and assure you that your child will receive the same attention and care when his/her time comes.

Please be sure to update our secretary or clinical staff if there are any changes to your child’s health, diet, or allergies at each visit.
