We understand that you are busy and you don’t have time to waste waiting beyond your reserved appointment times. To address this age-old problem in doctor’s offices, we use a two-part approach. For our part, we schedule realistically for our goal of running 100% on time and we only schedule one patient at a time. For your part, we require 2 working day’s notice if you need to change an appointment with Dr. Bernstein, and we require 1 week’s notice if you need to change an appointment with our hygienist. Of course, we have to charge for missed appointments and late cancellations, regardless of the reason, since empty appointment time is lost. To pursue our goal of providing the best dental care available for you, we don’t want anyone’s time to be wasted, and we don’t want to be in a hurry when we’re taking care of you.
We also understand that many people, maybe you, are either afraid of the dentist or may have some other reason to be sedated to have dental work. Our entire office is dedicated to helping patients who need to be sedated, either with I.V. sedation, sedative pills, or nitrous oxide (“laughing”) gas. Dr. Bernstein is one of a select few Cosmetic Dentists licensed and experienced in I.V. sedation. And if you or your family member needs General Anesthesia for dental care, we have Anesthesiologists in our office to help.
