Our goal is to provide high quality care to our patients and respect their schedule as well. In fairness to other patients, and the office staff, we require advanced notice when changing or cancelling an appointment.
When you schedule an appointment, we reserve that time and prepare in anticipation of serving you. If you should need to reschedule, we kindly request that you contact us with advanced notice. We understand that conflicts arise; however failing your appointment or canceling without adequate notice more than once may result in a charge.
Patients who continue to no-show and/or cancel without notice may be dismissed from the practice and asked to find another dentist.
Any patient who is late may be considered a “no show” for their appointment and may need to be rescheduled.
I agree that Bigfork Dental Center may communicate with me electronically, either via email or text. I understand that there is some level of risk that third parties may be able to read unencrypted emails or text messages. I am aware that I may withdraw my consent for electronic communications in writing or via phone, fax, or email at any time.
As with any dental treatment, there may be unforeseen treatment adjustments and/or complications. The clinic will make an effort to anticipate any changes in the treatment plan and advise me at that time. However, such events are unpredictable. Likewise, the timing or spacing of appointments may need to be modified as needed to accomplish the best result possible.
I have read, understand and agree to the above policies. I further consent to examination, treatment, and procedures with may be performed during office visits including emergency treatment considered necessary by the dentist and/or his/her designated providers.
