Appointments are time slots in our daily agenda reserved exclusively for you, and our team of professionals prepares in advance to receive you. This means we are ordering the materials required and reserving time with our doctor and assistant or hygienist, as well as the operatory space. We will be sterilizing and preparing the room as well as all the equipment and materials required for your procedure.
Missed appointments and short-notice cancellations result in unproductive time for the clinic and prevent us from scheduling another patient within a reasonable time.
We do understand that unexpected events or emergencies may come up therefore request that if you have a conflict and are unable to attend the scheduled appointment you provide us with at least 2 working days’ notice. Failure to do so may result in administrative fees.
