Amelia Gentle Dentistry Office Policies
Call our office and one of our friendly staff members will be happy to offer you appointment day and time choices to make your visit as convenient as possible. Once your initial visit has been scheduled, please arrive early enough to fill out any necessary paperwork and have any questions you have addressed prior to your appointment start time. It will be our goal to begin your appointment as close to the scheduled time as possible, we realise your time is very valuable. We schedule appointment times to match the procedure we have planned for that time. Anyone arriving more than ten minutes late for their appointment may have to have their appointment rescheduled. We want to have the time to deliver the highest quality treatment in a gentle manner without running over into the next patient's scheduled time. It is not fair to inconvenience a patient because the patient before them was late for their appointmnet.
Our office will do our best to confirm appointments twenty-four to forty-eight hours in advance of the appointment time. It is not always possible to contact every patient for every appointment. Please make a note of appointment dates and times on your calendar when they are made to ensure keeping your appointment. Our office requires MINIMUM of 24 hours notice to change or cancel a scheduled appointment. Any less time makes our ability to offer that appointment time to another patient very difficult. Repeated failure to give the office adequate notice for missed appointments will result in the necessity to collect a $50 deposit for future visits. That deposit will be applied to future treatment if appointments are kept.
