Your reservation is highly important to us, so we make a committed investment in your care. Thus, we order the materials and equipment necessary for your procedure once we book your reservation. Further, we invest in highly trained staff to provide you with the highest quality of care in the industry.
We work to ensure that you are just as committed to us as we are to you. Your reservation has been booked exclusively for you and will prevent anyone else from reserving your spot. Because of this, to book a reserved time slot, we require a reservation fee of 33% of your planned treatment. This will allow us to purchase the necessary materials and schedule trained staff and office time exclusively for you. Because this time is precious and could have been reserved for other patients who desired this slot, a cancellation fee of $50/30 minutes of reserved time will be assessed to your account if you fail to notify us at least 48 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment.
