Appointment Policies
 

How will orthodontics into my busy schedule?

Trammell Orthodontics strives to be convenient and fair to all of our patients, which is why we have carefully crafted our scheduling policies with everyone in mind. As you can image, each of our patients have important obligations during the day, usually involving work or school.

With this in mind, we will schedule longer appointments during school and work hours and shorter appointments before and after school or work. In this way we do not reserve the entire afternoon for one or two patients, but rather see as many patients as possible with short appointments. Since patients are seen, on average, every 6 weeks during their treatment your regular schedule should not be frequently interrupted.

Longer visits usually include ‘construction visits’ like when the braces are placed in the beginning of treatment or when the braces are removed at the end of treatment.

The majority of appointments are delightfully brief. Most adjustment appointments are completed quickly even though they may be quite technical.

What if I miss an appointment?

All failed appointments should be rescheduled as soon as possible, so please call the office immediately. Because our after school and work appointments are filled several weeks in advance, it will be necessary to reschedule failed appointments during the middle of the day. Numerous missed appointments will inevitably result in extension of your treatment time or result in additional charges.

What if I need to reschedule my appointment?

We ask for at least 24 hour notice to reschedule an appointment, as we have set aside time to accommodate your specific needs. Appointment changes will inevitably result in extension of your treatment time. Our goal in rescheduling appointments is to keep your treatment progressing and on time. Waiting for a convenient after school appointment can delay treatment. Vacations, summer hours, holidays and educational seminars will alter our schedule during the year.
