Summer 2011 Newsletter

Where did the summer go??? As the school year approaches, please remember that ALL orthodontic appointments are “excused absences”. A school excuse will be printed for you upon request.

Keep in mind that our longer, more technical appointments are scheduled in the mornings, while our more routine adjustment appointments can be scheduled throughout the day. We have office hours from 7 AM to 5 PM, as well as lunch-time appointments available.

We understand everyone’s very busy schedule and will do our best to find you an appointment that works for you. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and cooperation when it comes to scheduling appointments.
