Don't Skip Your Appointment 🗓
Important Reasons NOT to Miss Your Dental Appointment
We know it can sometimes be hard to make it to your dental appointments, to rearrange your already busy day to make it there, but there are benefits to keeping your appointment. Here are four great reasons NOT to miss your scheduled dental appointment.

  1. Prevention - Good oral health is directly related to overall health. When our team sees you regularly, we are in better position to catch and fix problems early.
  2. Avoid Long Wait Times - Our calendar fills fast, sometimes months ahead of time. Missing an appointment means you could be waiting longer than you'd like to make it up your missed appointment.
  3. Benefits - Keep your appointment to take advantage of your benefits. Most dental benefit plans will cover two preventive appointments, so you should take advantage. It could help prevent any future problems.
  4. We Want to See You - We love seeing your smiling face every couple of months! It's a joy to have you as a patient and we look forward to our appointments and not showing up to an appointment definitely causes us to worry!

Thank you in advance for showing up for your scheduled appointments!
