We do our best to schedule your consultation and treatment appointments as conveniently as possible. We also try very hard to respect your time by seeing you at the time your appointment is scheduled. The nature of periodontal and dental implant appointments is such that, when we reserve a time for you, it is not possible to schedule other patients at the same time. If you do not keep the appointment that has been reserved exclusively for you, that time is not used. Any change affects not only the office schedule but also many patients as well. Therefore, if your appointment must be changed, please advise our office a minimum of 48 HOURS in advance in order to avoid a cancellation fee. In the event of an emergency, please give us the maximum notice possible; this is necessary for our office to function efficiently for your benefit.
