We require 48 hours' notice for appointment changes or cancellations. Any short-notice cancellations or missed appointments will result in a minimum $50.00 fee charged to your account. This fee is not covered by any insurance policy or government funded dental provider. Please note that short-notice cancellations or missed appointments with specialists may result in a higher cancellation fee. The criteria for charging this fee are up to the individual practitioner with whom you are canceling. Reception has no discretion over this charge.
