ALL GRINS 4 KIDS PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY
ALL GRINS 4 KIDS is limited to the care of infants, children, teenagers and persons with special needs. Our focus is on prevention in order to promote a lifetime of good oral health. Because our patients are children, parents or guardians will be included in patient education, care planning and treatment. Therefore, a parent or legal guardian must accompany their child to all appointments.
Our office attempts to schedule appointments at your convenience and when time is available. In a practice limited to care of children, all appointments cannot be made after school hours. Children are fresher and have more resources for coping in the mornings. Therefore, certain morning appointments are necessary. We realize that occasionally this may inconvenience some parents, but it is the child we must always consider.
We believe that education is important for all children and want to limit absences from school. Toothaches can affect a child’s ability to concentrate and learn. The best way to maintain good dental health is for the child to receive routine preventive care. This is one of the reasons for mandatory dental exams for Illinois schools children. Thus, any dental appointment, like medical appointments, is an excused absence with a signed note from our office. http://www.aapd.org/media/Policies_Guidelines/P_SchoolAbsences.pdf
Since appointment times are reserved exclusively for each patient we ask that you notify our office 48 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment time if a cancellation is unavoidable. Another patient who needs our care could be scheduled if we have sufficient time to notify them. We realize that unexpected things can happen, but we ask for your assistance in this regard. We reserve the right to charge a missed appointment fee if you do not cancel at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. If two (2) or more broken/missed appointments occur or two (2) cancellations without a 48 hour notice, our office reserves the right to not schedule any subsequent appointments.
