Our Office

Schedule

Appointment times are reserved for your child in order for our team to be prepared to treat them in the best manner possible.  We respect your time and make a sincere effort to minimize your office waiting time.  Please understand, however, that emergencies and unforeseen circumstances may arise with children and can cause delays.  Please arrive 10 minutes early for your child’s scheduled appointment so we can seat your child at the promised time.

If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, your appointment may be rescheduled.

Cancellations

We require 2 business days notice if you must reschedule your child’s appointment.  We understand that families have busy schedules, and changes occasionally occur.   We will fill your appointment with a child who is waiting for dental care. 

A cancellation fee may apply if you cancel your child’s appointment with less than 2 business days notice.

Supervision

We are a child-friendly office but do ask that parents supervise their children while in the waiting area to avoid disruptions to the patients and potential injury.  Parents MUST remain in the office at all times while your child is receiving treatment.

Illness

Please contact us as soon as possible if you child becomes ill as it can affect their appointment.  Some conditions and infections can alter their dental treatment and their appointment may need to be rescheduled.


Food, drink and cell phone use

Please do not bring food or drink into the office as many of our patients cannot eat or drink before or after their appointments and the treatment areas may contain contaminants.

Cell phones should be turned to vibrate as ringing telephones and conversations can be distracting to our patients and dental team.

Emergencies

Our patients can reach Dr. Kari for after hours emergencies at 403-873-1414.
