Dear Valued Patients and Friends,
Happy October! 🍁 With the busy time of year (and with illnesses, including COVID, still going around), we understand it can be hard to sometimes honor your scheduled dental appointments. We ask, however, that you do all you can to keep your previously scheduled appointments. As you have likely heard, there is a severe shortage of workers throughout the nation. We have been hit especially hard in the dental industry. Every dental office we know, including ours, is understaffed at this time. This means that every appointment is precious and we cannot have appointments go unfilled. When you miss your appointment or even if you give us some notice by way of a cancellation call, it takes us a lot of time to piece things back together. This is time we would much rather devote to providing you with impeccable customer service!
Unfortunately, due to increased costs for products and labor and the need to increase wages for our amazing employees, we have no other option but to start consistently charging for missed appointments or appointments canceled with late notice. We thank you for your understanding of this matter. We look forward to serving you this fall and winter. ❤️
