Posted on 5/24/2021 by Robert Leale
|Some patients choose to prioritize other things above their routine cleanings and dental exams. We strongly suggest you keep these appointments. Perhaps you cancel your appointment at the last minute due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict. Maybe you don't see the value of your appointment. Perhaps you don't feel an urgency to go to the dentist because you are not feeling any discomfort. Maybe you just plain forgot. Regardless of your reason, it is important to keep your dental appointment, so you do not incur future costs to fix big problems down the road.
