For the last year, our hygiene schedule has been booked solid.
Part of the reason for this situation had to do with the amount of people we could see in a given time, due to safety guidelines. These pandemic protocols were developed by the American Dental Association.
In addition, our new patient numbers have been great. Thanks to all of our awesome patients, our office has seen amazing growth.
Fortunately, this has allowed us to book our hygiene schedule for 8 weeks in advance.
What that means is if you were to call for a cleaning appointment the first available appointment will be for 2 months from now.
Though having a fully booked schedule is great, I understand how this can be hard on our patients. And having our patients wait 2 months to get on the schedule to get their teeth cleaned, has really bothered me.
For several months, I have been calling anyone and everyone to help find another hygienist to add more hours in our hygiene schedule and reduce the 2 month wait.
I didn’t want to hire just anyone. I’ve been doing this long enough to know that people who fit into our office culture is key. Someone who has our same values and who performs at the same quality is a must.
I am happy to announce that starting in July, Megan will be working with us on Tuesdays and Fridays to help us with serving our patients.
Megan has been a hygienist for a long time and has been working with us for the last 4 years. She has always helped us cover shifts. Now she is going to work with us more consistently starting in July.
I am very excited to announce that starting July 13th we will be adding additional hygiene hours to better and more swiftly help our patients.
As always, it is best to call ahead of time, to get scheduled. Get scheduled now!
