Patients are always welcome to come early to their appointments and fill out forms in the office. If you have questions we are always happy to help. However, there are some advantages to printing your forms off at home and filling them out prior to your appointment. For one, you’re not under any time constraints and can fill out the forms at your leisure. Take the time to read and familiarize yourself with our office policies. Also, you won’t lose valuable appointment time with your dentist or hygienist. Appointments have a start and an end time. If we can’t start your appointment on time because you’re still filling out paperwork, we still have to finish on time to accommodate our next patient. This means we may have to book you back for treatment that could have been finished in one appointment.
