Scheduling Appointments

Our office appreciates your promptness in arriving for your child’s dental visit. We reserve a specific time for your child according to their dental needs and level of cooperation. We request that younger, pre-school age children (age 5 and under) are scheduled early in the day when they are more rested, alert and receptive to treatment. School age children with extensive dental treatment needs should also be seen in the morning for the same reason.

Please be aware that after school appointment times are limited and in high demand. It may be necessary for your child to miss part of their school day for their dental appointment. Dental appointments are excused absences from school and we will gladly provide a school excuse for your child.

We value your time and will do our best to remain on schedule throughout the day. We do ask that you please remember that each child in our office is an individual and some may require more patience and TLC than others. We also experience the occasional emergency which may cause delays in our scheduling. We ask for your patience and that you please keep in mind that your child may be the next one needing our extra attention.

As a courtesy, our office will attempt to contact you for confirmation 1-2 days prior to your child’s appointment. However, we do ask that the parents/guardians assume responsibility for their child’s appointment time.

Missed appointments or short term cancellations (within 24 hours) without proper notification can be costly to you because they are costly to us and unfair to other patients who are in need of appointments. Please see our Financial Policy for important information relating to missed appointments and associated fees. Repeated missed appointments of any kind may be subject to dismissal from our practice.

Please call us at Algonquin Office Phone Number 224-654-6543 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
