Office Policies

Appointments

Rogers and Andrews Orthodontics tries to keep the number of appointments to a minimum by using new techniques and long acting “space age” wires. School age children will miss some school during orthodontic treatment since there is only 1 ½ hours of treatment time after school. Schools understand and are very cooperative if you return to school immediately after being seen. Our office provides school excuses.

Please note that missed appointments add time to treatment. Since we schedule your appointments weeks in advance, it is difficult to reschedule broken appointments so please notify our office in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule.

Sterilization

Sterilization excellence is practiced in our office. We make it our business that this area of the office has the most up-to-date equipment and monitoring. We meet the sterilization standards of the American Dental Association. Our instruments are heat sterilized after each patient, new gloves are worn for each patient, disposable items are used wherever possible, and each station is sterilized between patients. We want your comfort and safety protected while you are in our care. Our sterilization lab is convenient to our treatment area, and we would be happy for you to visit it when you are in the office.
