Missed Appointments or Late Cancellations

Missing appointments and cancelling at short notice wastes time and resources which are needed for other patients. Our practice policy is that if, on more than one occasion, patients cancel with less that 2 working days notice, or not attend an appointment, then we may no longer be able to offer NHS treatment. We will of course take any special circumstances into account. We will still be able to offer private dental care.
