Yes, may charge for missed appointments. Dentists should establish a policy that patients are able to visibly see, notice may be given on signs in the lobby area and on appointment reminder postcards, for example.
However, an office is not precluded from billing a patient for a missed appointment. ... Dentists, in particular, typically have strict policies on missed appointments and will charge patients when they miss or at least do not notify or reschedule within 24 hours of the appointment.
To maintain good oral health, we recommend regular checkups every six months. The purpose of the active maintenance schedule is to maintain an optimal level of oral health. Even if you have excellent brushing and flossing habits at home, there will usually still be plaque and calculus buildup.
Such buildup requires specific instruments to be effectively removed. In your active maintenance session, the dentist will carefully examine your oral condition, remove the plaque and calculus left behind and give you teeth a fluoride treatment. After the checkup, the dentist will provide you with an overview of the conditions in your mouth. If needed the dentist also formulates a treatment plan for you.
Did u know that flossing cleans 10% of all teeth areas but this 10% is where the dentist finds 90% of all cavities? We recommend that patients floss at least once a day and also especially after meals. This practice is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing can be removed via flossing. Flossing helps prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
We encourage patients to change their toothbrush every 4-6 weeks or sooner if the bristles are frayed. Not only are frayed and worn bristles ineffective, but they can also cause damage to teeth and gums and retain unwanted bacteria on the toothbrush.
Here at Top smile clinic , we will try our best to accommodate your busy schedule. Normally patients should be able to book in for same-day or next-day appointments.
We recommend using a toothbrush with soft or extra soft bristles because hard bristles can damage tooth enamel. Using the correct technique, a soft bristle brush can clean just as well as a hard bristle brush.
At our practice , the dentists are known for their gentle hands. With minor procedures and simple fillings, local anaesthesia is usually not required.
