Should I cancel my dentist appointment when sick?
We very much appreciate our patient family's desire to make it in for all of their dental appointments. However, we urge everyone, especially during what is likely to be a very "bad" flu season, to give us a call when you are ill and scheduled to be seen. Chances are, we will recommend that you stay home and recover and therefore there will be no charge for the missed appointment.
The nature of dental work automatically exposes our staff to far more than their fair share of viruses due to their constant & close proximity to saliva and mucus. We need a healthy staff to continue to treat all of our patients, so please consider those around you before coming in sick!
