At Clocktower Family Dental, we schedule our appointments so that each patient receives the right amount of time to be seen by our doctors and staff. That’s why it is very important that you keep your scheduled appointment with us and arrive on time. We ask our patients to give us 48 hours notice if they cannot keep an appointment. This allows us time to fill our schedule with other patients who may be waiting.
- Standard business hours are considered Monday – Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Any missed or failed hygiene (cleaning) appointments within these hours will be subject to a $50 cancellation fee for every hour booked.
- Failed restorative (doctor) appointments, and any appointments occurring during “prime times” (5:00 – 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays) are subject to a $75 cancellation fee for every hour booked.
- Fees associated with failed appointments are not reimbursable by your insurance company. You will be billed directly.
- A failed appointment is an appointment that is cancelled/rescheduled without 48 hours notice or an appointment where a patient does not show up.
- Patients that arrive more than 10 minutes late to their appointment will be considered no-shows and will be asked to reschedule.
- After three (3) failed appointments, we may require a deposit of up to 100% of your treatment total prior to scheduling, and our practice may choose to terminate its relationship with you.
