Office Hours

We are open Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM, and we work in emergency patients as soon as possible.  We schedule an hour for most sedation procedures and create a schedule that is respectful of our patient's valuable time.  We do our best to keep waiting and delays to an absolute minimum.  We respectfully request 24 hours notice from patients wishing to reschedule or cancel appointments so that we may devote that appointment time to another patient.
