Scheduling for Periodontics

Appointments:

We try to see all patients on an appointment basis, and we request that you call in advance so that we can reserve time for you. We make every effort to honor all time commitments and request that you extend the same courtesy to us.

We try to stay on schedule to minimize waiting at the time of your appointment. Referral of emergency patients can cause delays to the schedule, and your understanding and patients are very much appreciated.

Appointment time is valuable. Please notify us 48 business hours if you should need to change appointments. We will be happy to do so but need 48 business hours notice to avoid a fee.

Courtesy confirmation notifications are available using email and text messaging.
