Scheduling

Dr. David McInnis Orthodontics is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM. We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.

In an effort to honor our patient’s time and minimize time spent waiting in our office, we ask patients to brush their teeth and check in prior to their scheduled appointment time.

We will make every effort possible to schedule appointments at your convenience. For this reason, we see patients on teacher workdays and some holidays (Martin Luther King Day, Veteran’s Day, etc.).
Longer Appointments
These appointments are for the placement of braces and appliances. We generally attempt to schedule longer appointments in the morning or early afternoon during school hours. This allows more time in the afternoon to see patients after school; it also enables us to accommodate as many patients as possible in a streamlined manner. Early and after-school appointments are booked heavily so that patients do not have to miss school or work.
“Adjustment” Appointments
These brief appointments provide technical adjustments to your braces. Most of our patients schedule these appointments at various times during the day. Even though these appointments will often occur during school or work hours, they are necessary for treatment and only take a few minutes to complete. We are happy to provide you with a written excuse slip to avoid an unexcused absence from school or work.
Late Arrivals & Rescheduled Appointments

While every appointment is vital to the success of your treatment, we understand that certain circumstances may cause you to change or overlook an appointment. If you are unable to keep an appointment, please call us as soon as possible to reschedule.

We will always offer you the first available appointment. Remember that missed appointments will extend your treatment.

If you arrive after your scheduled start time, we may need to reschedule your appointment in order to perform all the necessary orthodontic procedures and still stay on schedule for the rest of our patients. Our intention is to value your time as well as that of the patients scheduled after you.

Please arrive on time for your scheduled appointment.

Comfort Visits
Comfort visits are scheduled if the need arises between regular appointments to alleviate discomfort or to repair a broken appliance. These appointments need to be scheduled in advance; walk-ins will be seen on a space-available basis only or may have to wait or be rescheduled another day.
We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact Dr. McInnis provides many types of orthodontic services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
