Of course, we want to accommodate your needs for a convenient appointment in every possible way. Since the large majority of our patients are in school, it is necessary to schedule many of our appointments during school hours. Some procedures require longer treatment times and will be scheduled early in the morning or immediately after lunch. Routine appointments will be rotated to accommodate your schedule as best as possible. When school-time appointments are necessary, we will give you a school excuse so that your absence won’t count against you.
If you do encounter a situation which necessitates a rescheduling of an appointment, please call as soon as you recognize the conflict – this will allow us to re-appoint you more easily and minimize any delay in your treatment progress.
Missed or frequently re-scheduled appointments are the number one cause of extending the total treatment beyond the estimated number of months. They may also reduce the success of your treatment. Please call as soon as possible if rescheduling your appointment is necessary.
Timeliness of Appointments
Our patients being on time is critical to the smooth progress of your orthodontic treatment. Dr. Jen strives to run on time for your appointments. She values your time and when you arrive on time, you value her time and the time of other patients scheduled around your appointment time. If you arrive too late for an appointment, it may be necessary to reschedule rather than upset other prompt patients.
