Office visits are by appointment only, but we always make time for emergencies. However, we make every effort to see your child at the scheduled appointment time; and we ask you to afford us the same courtesy. Schools consider dental visits to be excused absences. We will give you a School Excuse letter for your child’s teacher upon request.
Pre – Appointments
We encourage you to pre-appoint your child’s next smile-care check-up during your visit. This is especially important if you want those desirable early morning and late afternoon appointment slots. Younger children should be seen in the morning because many are most cooperative then. This also enables us to work slowly and at a comfortable pace for your child. School-age children also are often most comfortable with morning appointments. However, many children may be fine with later appointments – depending on the planned procedures.
We are a small office that sees one patient at a time and your child’s appointment time is reserved specifically for him or her. But, we understand sickness and emergencies may keep you from attending a scheduled appointment. Should you find yourself unable to keep your appointment, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance. We will try to reschedule your child’s appointment at a more convenient time. Please understand the best appointment times are difficult to obtain with short notice.
Everything we do at Hello Kids Dentistry is focused on your child and their oral health. We realize that each patient is unique and we strive for providing dental care that results in what is best for your child.
