SHORT APPOINTMENTS - appointments lasting 10 minutes or less are reserved for before and after school/work for the convenience of our patients and their parents. These times include 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 4:50 p.m. These appointments include, but are not limited to; checking appliances, checking retainers, re-ties and delivery of clear retainers. Of course you are always welcome to schedule short appointments anytime during the day that is convenient for you.
LONG APPOINTMENTS - appointments lasting 15 minutes or more are scheduled between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. due to the complexity of the treatment procedure and the time involved. These appointments include, but are not limited to: consultations, getting braces on/off, repositioning/rebonding of braces and delivery of appliances.
EMERGENCY APPOINTMENTS - are scheduled according to the nature of the emergency and the treatment prescribed by Dr. Wesley. Always call as soon as possible in the case that an emergency appointment is needed.
CONSULTATIONS - these appointments generally last 40 minutes or more and are scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Because these appointments are offered free of charge, and due to the amount of time that is set aside for you, we ask that you call at least 48 hours in advance if you need to reschedule or cancel your consultation appointment.
MISSED APPOINTMENTS - patients who continually miss their scheduled appointments without calling in advance to cancel or reschedule, will be required to schedule all future appointments between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Please remember to call if you have to miss, reschedule or cancel any of your appointments.
