In order to respect the time of our patients, appointments are made and a specific period of time is reserved for just you.  We make every effort to meet our schedule and take pride that we usually do.  The prompt arrival of our patients helps make this possible.  Your cooperation is appreciated.

Even though remembering your appointment time is your responsibility, we will try to call you two days before to confirm your appointment.  Please make a note on your schedule so you can reserve this time as you make other commitments.

When it is necessary for you to change an appointment, please let us know as soon as possible so we can offer your reserved time to other waiting patients.  Your appointments are carefully planned to minimize additional dental problems and expenses.  Delays on your part may cause additional dental problems and complications.  If your schedule is flexible and you are easy to contact, please inform us so that we can call you if we have a change in our schedule.

Financial Considerations

Dental treatment is an excellent investment in an individual's medical and psychological well being.  Financial considerations should not be an obstacle to obtaining this important health service.  We are here to assist you in any way possible, so make any questions or concerns known to our team.  In our commitment to provide the highest quality of dental care and to have those services comfortably affordable, we are pleased to offer you the following options for payment:

* Cash or check

* VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express

* Care Credit - credit card for healthcare expenses with interest free payment plans up to 12 months (interest is retroactive if not paid in full within promotion period)
