Appointments, Fees & AGP
Per the guidelines set by the Nova Scotia Dental Association, all staff and patients must be masked within the clinic. The first appointment is usually reserved for a comprehensive examination and x-rays, unless you have an emergency condition or specific problem. We will discuss with you our findings with the use of the intraoral camera, why we have made the recommendation, as well as a proposed treatment plan and cost estimate.
After the treatment is completed, you will be given a recall (cleaning) appointment for usually 6 months time (sometimes sooner). Our staff will call to remind you of your appointment within two weeks before it is due. These recall appointments will permit us to maintain your good state of dental health and find developing problems early before they require a great deal of time and expense.
We Can See You Today!
We see a large number of emergencies every week. We block our schedule on a regular basis to save room for emergencies. We can squeeze someone in if they are having a problem. We will always do our best to help out someone in pain, or with any urgent issue.
If you are experiencing an emergency dental situation call us at 902-445-9255 to have us fit you in today!
We try hard to stick to our patient schedule so that you are not kept waiting. Sometimes situations during treatment occur that are beyond our control, and we fall behind. We ask for your patience and understanding in these cases.
If you arrive late for your appointment, we will perform what treatment we can with the time remaining, then schedule another appointment to complete treatment so as not to keep our other patients waiting. If you are very late, you will need to reschedule your appointment in all fairness to others.
If you miss your appointment, our staff will attempt to contact you immediately to reschedule. There is a $75. charge for missed appointments when two-business days notice is not given.
