Our office schedules patients on The first appointment of the day is scheduled at 8:15 a.m. and the last at 4:15 p.m. We block out and
schedule specific procedures at specific times. On occasion, the Thousand Oaks office is open until 6:00 p.m.
For school age patients, the after school appointments are our most popular times and usually are reserved first. After school appointments will not be available for every appointment. Please be flexible when scheduling appointments, e.g. selecting teacher in-service days, days off, vacations or a class that may be missed once a semester. If this is a problem, then other arrangements may need to be made.
You are responsible for scheduling appointments. Most patients schedule their next appointment upon leaving the office. We do not confirm treatment appointments. Please do not hesitate to call our office if you need to know the time of your next appointment. Once braces are placed, appointments are usually 6-8 weeks apart. Appointment are approximately 45-60 minutes.
We would appreciate your promptness for the scheduled appointments. Our schedule does not allow for a patient to be much later than 10 minutes. If late, we may need to reschedule the appointment. Also, please remember broken appliances prolong treatment appointments and total treatment time which result in additional fees.
If unable to keep an appointment please call our office 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment to avoid a failed appointment charge to your account. Your next scheduled appointment may be 1 to 4 weeks from the originally scheduled appointment depending on the time allotted and availability of appointments.
