Appointments

A doctor's schedule is usually unpredictable depending on each patient's case, therefore it is imperative to be on time for your scheduled appointment.

If you are a new patient with us and did not have the opportunity to print out our new patient forms ahead of time, it is important to be AT LEAST 20 minutes early as to not cut into your appointment time; this gives you plenty of time to fill out the paperwork and give us all current insurance information.

Existing patients should be prepared to give any new information including any changes with your dental insurance.
