Appointment Policy

Most people undergoing orthodontic treatment have important obligations during the day. We try to minimize any conflict with these obligations as much as possible, but during orthodontic treatment, we will need to see you regularly. Some of your appointments will occur during work or school.

Short Appointments

We realize that before school or after school is the more convenient appointment time for most patients. Since the majority of your visits will involve relatively short adjustments we try to reserve the before and after school hours for these types of appointments.

Long Appointments

Since the early and late portions of our day are fully scheduled well in advance with shorter appointments we are unable to schedule longer visits or repair visits during that time. Therefore, these appointments are generally scheduled between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Fortunately you will have far fewer of this type of visit during the course of your treatment.

Rescheduling Appointments

Because the schedule is carefully crafted, your late arrival or missed visit can pose a problem. In fairness to other patients, we will not be able to “squeeze you in”. We will, however, reschedule your appointment as soon as possible. Again due to the scheduling of the before and after school hours well in advance, we will likely need to reschedule your visit during school hours. It is important that you do not delay rescheduling, as this may affect the progress of your treatment.

Monday & Tuesday 8am-5pm, Wednesday & Thursday 7:30am-4:00pm
