Appointment Request

Office Hours

DSC4395We are open to serve you, answer questions or schedule an appointment during the following hours:

Monday – Thursday: 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.


We understand that scheduling an appointment can be difficult when you add school, sports, work and your everyday errands into the mix. We have specific times for appointments to minimize time away from school or work. Dr. LaPonzina schedules his longer appointments in the morning and early afternoon, allowing him to see more patients after school for routine adjustments.

Morning Appointments
These appointments consist of New Patient Appointments, Brace/Appliance Placement or Removal, and true emergences. These appointments may last 30-90 minutes.

After-School Routine Appointments
Once appliances are placed in the mouth, routine visits are scheduled for approximately 15 minutes every 4 to 6 weeks.

Emergency Visits
In case of a true orthodontic emergency, you should be seen as soon as possible. This may require time away from school or work. Dr. LaPonzina reserves special times for emergency appointments during the day. Please be considerate of other patients, and let our office know of any broken braces before your visit. If you show up with a broken bracket at your regularly scheduled visit, we may not be able to repair it, and that could delay your treatment progress.

Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved specifically for you. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment. We request that you notify us as soon as possible if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. After-school appointments book up fast, and we want to make sure we keep your treatment on schedule!
