HOURS: Our office is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Our goal is to arrange appointments that are convenient for your family’s schedule.

Hygiene/Check-up appointments begin at 8:00 a.m. and the last patient is scheduled at 4:10. Restorative appointments begin at 8:00 a.m., and the last appointment is scheduled at 2:40 p.m. We highly recommend that younger children have restorative treatment scheduled in the morning. School aged children can be scheduled morning or afternoon. We understand that dental appointments may cause your child to miss school.

Dental visits are considered excused absences and a school excuse will be provided at the end of every appointment upon request. School absences can be kept to a minimum with the practice of good preventive dentistry—regular checkups and good home care.

We will place a courtesy call the day before your child’s appointment using the phone number provided. You may also give permission for a text and or e-mail reminder. We understand that children’s schedules can be interrupted without notice. Please call our office 24 hours prior to a scheduled appointment to cancel or reschedule. Should you need to cancel when the office is closed, please leave a message on our voice mail.
