After the orthodontic records are completed, we’ll be ready to schedule an appointment to have your new appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) placed. That process usually takes one to two hours. You’ll then see us at regular intervals of six to eight weeks for adjustments.
We value your time and therefore we make every effort to stay on schedule. We ask you to extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time so someone else may use that time slot. Patients are seen by appointment only. Your time is reserved specifically for you and, if you are late, it may have to be rescheduled. Missed appointments are rescheduled in the morning and early afternoon. It may take up to six weeks to reschedule another after school appointment so keep your regular appointment whenever possible.
We try to accommodate your schedule by seeing the maximum number of patients in the after school hours. In order to do this, all long appointments are always scheduled in the morning and early afternoon.
We stick to this policy because we want to assure that everyone can have most of their appointments in the after school hours.
