As a patient with our clinic, you allow Limoges Dental Centre to release information (with your permission) concerning your dental health to the family physician, dentist or other specialist as is deemed necessary from time to time. Such information includes radiographs (x-rays) and other diagnostic records which pertain to the initial condition, diagnosis, proposed treatment or treatment in progress.
Appointments are scheduled specifically for you! We will make our best effort to accommodate your schedule. If you have given us permission, we will also send you reminders 1 week and 1 day prior to your appointment to help keep track of your appointment.
We require a minimum of 2 business days, 48 hours, notice to change and/or cancel appointments. The sooner we are aware of the change, the more time we have to contact patients who may be waiting for an appointment.
