Please remember that every time an appointment is missed or rescheduled, your treatment time may increase. We completely understand extenuating circumstances may cause you to change or forget about an appointment and that you may need to reschedule. If you need to change an appointment or you unfortunately missed one, please call us as soon as possible so we can schedule you into the next available appointment time. If you are going to be late for an appointment, please call us as soon as possible so we may make appropriate arrangements. Each orthodontic procedure takes a specific period of time to complete, and late arrivals affect our schedule and the schedules of other patients. If you are late, we will try to uphold your appointment, but the work may not be completed and a second appointment may need to be scheduled.
