It depends. If we can take care of a tooth problem on the first visit without causing other scheduled patients to wait, we will do so. In our office, we respect your time as much as we would like for you to respect our time. Obviously, if you are having an emergency problem, we will do whatever is necessary to make you comfortable. Our goal is to schedule patients so that when they have an appointment, they can know that they will be seen in a timely manner.
