Appointments

We see all patients on a scheduled appointment basis, and we have reserved that time specifically for you. Our goal is to see each patient at their scheduled time; however, sometimes emergencies or difficulties with a prior patient may arise. If this occurs, our front staff will keep you informed of any delays.



Emergencies
If you have a dental emergency, please contact our office immediately. If during office hours, we will work out a time for you to be seen based on symptoms and need. If after hours, call the office for instructions on how to reach the dentist on call.

If you reach an answering machine, please leave a detailed message and the dentist will return your call in a timely fashion.

                 *Please note that we cannot prescribe pain medication after hours or if we have not

               seen you for the condition causing the pain. You must contact us during office hours

               for any prescriptions. For refills, contact your pharmacy.



​First Visit
On your first visit with us, you will begin with a full mouth series of X-rays to determine if any dental treatment is required. Then, we will do inter-oral camera pictures and perio charting and talk with you about your options and which treatments may be the most effective to improve your teeth and gums. 


Recall Visits
The key to good oral health is regular preventive care visits. Typically, patients should be seen every three (3) or six (6) months for a cleaning and an examination. X-rays are generally taken once a year. For your convenience, we will attempt to schedule your next while you are in the office. We will send a reminder text or email to the phone number / email that we have on file, either notifying you that your appointment is approaching or that you need to make an appointment. We will also call to remind you of an appointment 48 hours prior to the scheduled date as well. Please make sure we have your correct information on file.



Cancellations
We understand that circumstances may require you to change your appointment. If you are unable to keep your appointment, we do ask that you contact us 48 hours prior to the appointment time so that we may use this time for other patients who are waiting for dental services. Because we make reminder calls 48 hours prior to all appointments, a fee will be charged for insufficient notice of cancelled or missed appointments. Please see our Appointment Cancellation Policy
