What if I have to cancel my appointment?
At Balltree Dental we try to encourage patients to always attend for the appointments they book. This ensures that we can reduce the amount of any price increases. This is because when a patient fails to attend (or cancels within 48 hours), the valuable appointment time is left empty and therefore unproductive. We still have to meet the costs of staff and premises, even when a surgery is empty.
We have therefore decided we will require a 50% deposit to secure an appointment. The deposit will obviously be deducted from the cost of the treatment. Where a patient fails to attend (or cancels with less than 48 hours notice) the deposit will be forfeited. Should a patient wish to ‘appeal’ against a forfeiture of a deposit, we ask them to put the details of why they were unable to attend for their appointment, in writing and send to the Practice Manager. Please note that the Practice Manager, with the Practice Owner will decide the outcome of an appeal and it is not the decision of any other clinician within the Practice.
We are grateful to all patients who assist us in ensuring that we maximise available surgery time, always attend for the appointments they book and give us as much notice as possible if they need to reschedule (which is more than 48 hours). Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Who regulates your practice?
