Little Grins Dental strives to be on-time, efficient and respectful of your time. When your appointment is scheduled, a room is reserved, your records are reviewed and special instruments are prepared before your arrival. You can expect Little Grins Dental to be prompt unless we are providing emergency treatment for another patient.
Due to our limited number of available appointments, we ask that you contact us before your scheduled appointment to reschedule or cancel. If we are given enough notice, we can offer your appointment time to a family that is on the waiting list.
If you miss or reschedule within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment, Little Grins Dental will require a $60 deposit in order to reschedule your appointment. The $60 deposit will be refunded at the next appointment. If a consecutive appointment is missed or is rescheduled with less than a 24 hour notice, then an additional $60 deposit will be required to reschedule. In that situation, only $60 total will be refunded at the next appointment and not $120. If a third appointment is missed or rescheduled with less than a 24 hour notice, then it will be necessary to categorize that patient as inactive and will only be scheduled from the waiting list.
Little Grins Dental is a general dental practice where dental insurance is welcomed and accepted. Payment for professional services is due at the time dental treatment is provided. Every effort will be made to provide a treatment plan which fits your timetable and budget and gives your child the best possible care. If payment is not received from your dental insurance company within 45 days from the date of service then you will be responsible for payment for all dental services provided. All balances over 60 days are subject to a 5% service charge. Delinquent accounts over 90 days will be forwarded to a collection service and you will be responsible for all related costs.
Child Custody Agreements and Court Orders
Little Grins Dental understands that many families may have child custody agreements or court orders regarding the fiduciary responsibility of a child’s medical and dental care. However, Little Grins Dental will not become involved in any custody or financial responsibility disputes. The parent or guardian that brings the child to Little Grins Dental is legally responsible for the payment of all fees regardless of any custody agreements or court orders.
