Office Hours

North Jefferson Pediatric Dentistry is open to serve you, answer questions or schedule an appointment during the following hours:

Monday – Thursday: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Appointments

We try our best to accommodate our patients as much as possible when scheduling appointments. We have found that children with extensive dental work or preschool children are better to be seen early in the morning when they are fresher and can have a more positive experience. Some appointments may require the child to miss some school; however, these are considered excused absences. With continued care, appointments during school can be kept to a minimum.

We request 24-hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment, but we ask for your help as a courtesy to all of our patients.  A $25 fee will be charged to your account if the appointment is missed, cancelled or rescheduled without at least  24 hour's notice.   Continued broken confirmed appointments may result in an additional charge.

Courtesy Confirmation

We will attempt to contact you either by phone, text or email prior to your scheduled appointment to confirm the day and time reserved for your child.  

 

Late Arrivals

If you arrive more than 10 minutes late to your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.  Contingent upon the schedule we may be able to work you in later that day.  We thank you in advance for your understanding.  

Insurance

Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary greatly, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 45 days to render payment. After 60 days, you are responsible for the entire balance, paid-in-full. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.
