Scheduling and Appointments
There are appointment times that fit everyone’s busy schedule. To minimize the amount of time missed from school or work, our shorter adjustment appointments are often scheduled in the mornings from 8:00 am – 9:00 am and after school appointments are 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm. Longer appointments such as new patient exams and bondings (the placement of braces) are schedule throughout the rest of the day.
Types of Appointments
Please plan on the following time allotments for each type of appointment at our office:
- Initial examination: 1 hour
- Records (x-ray, models) if not a part of the initial visit: 30 minutes
- Initial exam and records on the first day: 1.5 hours
- Consultation: up to 1 hour
- Bonding: up to 1.5 hours
- Adjustments: 15-45 minutes depending upon the procedure required.
We ask that you make every attempt to keep all scheduled appointments. This ensures that your treatment will finish more quickly, leading to less time in braces and more time enjoying your smile. Please call at least 48 hours before your appointment if you are unable to keep your appointment. This allows us to schedule other patients who are waiting to be seen.
If you are running late for an appointment, please call us to let us know. When you arrive late, you may be asked to wait in the reception area briefly as we treat patients who have arrived on time. This will allow us to maintain our goal of staying on schedule.
We make it easier to find an appointment that works best with your schedule. Our practice offers unique extended hours which make the accessibility to our office EASY! We're open Saturdays 9 am to 3 pm. Book your weekend appointment today by contacting us.
