Appointment Policies

                                                                                                                                                 A parent and/or legal guardian must be present on the child's first dental appointment.  You need to be 15 minutes early for your child's first appointment.

Patients are expected to be on time for appointments.  If you are more than 15 minutes late for an appointment, you may be asked to reschedule your child's appointment


Broken Appointments

                                                                                                                                                 A broken appointment is:

  • not showing up for an appointment;

  • arriving later than 15 minutes after your scheduled appointment time; or

  • failure to cancel an appointment with at least 24 hours notice.

Children with two broken appointments will be dismissed as patients from the Stanly County Dental Clinic.  You will be responsible for finding another dentist to treat your child.



                                                                                                                                                Parents or guardians are responsible for calling the Stanly County Dental Clinic at least 24 hours before their child's appointment to cancel


Emergency Treatment Needs

                                                                                                                                                  If your child has a toothache, you may give the pain reliever your child normally takes and call the dental clinic to make an appointment.

If your child has a swollen mouth or face, take your child to the closest hospital emergency room immediately.

If your child has been involved in an accident and sustained an injury to his/her teeth, you may call the Stanly County Dental Clinic during office hours.  If the injury occurs after office hours, you take your child to the closest hospital emergency room
