Collins Orthodontics values your time, so we will do our best to schedule your appointments at times that work best for you. Before and after school/work appointments are available, including early morning, lunch, and evening hours.
Please allow the following time for each appointment type:
- Initial Examination – 60 minutes
- Bonding – 60 minutes
- Adjustment Appointments – 20 minutes
Cancellations and No-Shows
During the course of orthodontic treatment, it is imperative that you do not miss a scheduled appointment. Orthodontic forces must be monitored on a regular basis to ensure the highest quality of orthodontic care. We do, however, realize that some circumstances cannot be avoided, and you will occasionally need to reschedule.
In the event that you will miss your regularly scheduled visit, please notify our office as soon as possible so we may reschedule for the next available appointment time. We encourage you to make every effort to keep your scheduled visit as missed appointments will prolong your overall treatment time.
Rescheduling Of Appointments
When an appointment has to be rescheduled for any reason, we ask that you take the next available appointment opening to prevent treatment delays.
Should you arrive late for an appointment, we still do our best to see you; however, we must continue seeing other scheduled patients on time. We will make every effort to see you, but in some instances you may be required to reschedule your appointment.
