If we’re honest with ourselves, we know that visiting the dentist is not high on your list of favorite activities. As much as we love dentistry & caring for smiles, we know the general public doesn’t quite share our passion. That’s why we do everything we can to make sure we provide dental care in a way that respects your busy schedule.
We find that the majority of our patients work jobs that are roughly 9am to 5pm every weekday. That’s why we offer teeth cleaning appointments in the morning that allow you to get in & out with plenty of time to get to work before 9am. We also offer teeth cleaning appointments in the late afternoon & evening, so you can stop by on your way home from work without having to leave early.
We also realize that most of young patients are in school from 8am to about 3pm, sometimes later if they participate in sports or other extracurricular activities. That’s what we offer early morning & evening teeth cleaning appointments for children as well. We don’t think it’s necessary for parents to pull their children out of class just for a teeth cleaning. We also offer children’s teeth cleaning appointments during midday during the summer when kids are free from school.
We work hard to ensure you leave every cleaning appointment with your next appointment already scheduled. This is so you can have it in your calendar as early as possible so you won’t forget. However, we know that it’s hard to know what you’ll be doing 3, 6, or 12 months from now (depending on how often we recommend you get your teeth cleaned). That’s why we always want to schedule your next appointment so you won’t have to miss work. If your next scheduled appointment is at a time that conflicts with your work schedule, please let us know so we can re-schedule it for you.
The last thing we want is for you to have to cancel your appointment at the last minute. Your dental health is far too important for that! Seeing your dentist regularly for cleanings doesn’t just mean you have an extra clean smile, it also gives us an opportunity to check for other health problems like gingivitis, gum disease & even oral cancer. We do everything we can to make dental care an easy & care-free part of your life. If we can do something better to ensure we respect your busy schedule, please let us know!
