Scheduling an appointment for your child
Here at Children’s Dental Center, we know how busy families are with work, school, and extracurricular activities, and try our best to accommodate you as much as possible when scheduling appointments.
Over the years, we have found that most children, especially those with extensive dental work or those who are preschool age, do better when they are seen early in the morning. They are generally fresher and much less tired and easily frustrated when compared to appointments in the later afternoon, leading to a more positive experience for all involved. Some of these earlier appointments may require your child to miss some school, but we will gladly provide a note for your child to take to school so that these will be considered excused absences. With continued care, appointments during school can be kept to a minimum.
Rescheduling or Cancellations
If you find that you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment for your child, please give our office at least 24 hours notice if possible for all cleaning and dental treatment appointments. We require a 3-day cancellation notice for all booked hospital cases. Our office reserves the right to charge a $50 fee for any missed appointments. All fees must be paid before you rescheduling another appointment.
If you miss more than three appointments without notifying our office, we reserve the right to refuse rescheduling the appointment for your child or to dismiss your child from our practice. You may leave a message at 901.861.9668 any time of the day or night. We ask that you let us know if your child will miss their appointment, or if you will be running late, so that we may adjust our schedules accordingly.
