If you could have one wish granted, what would you wish for? Many people will say one of these top three answers:
- More money
- More time
- Less stress
While we’re not able to freely grant these wishes, we are committed to staying in touch with our patients’ needs, and adapting how we operate Hummingbird Dental to suit them. How do we do this? We offer affordable dental care with lots of options to come and see us (hopefully helping with items 2 and 3 on the wish list above). Simply stated, we want to make it reasonably priced and convenient to care for your teeth.
We Offer Morning, Afternoon and Evening Appointments Six Full Days of the Week
Yes, you read that correctly. We are open at least eight hours each day six days of the week. Our staff works a full day on Saturday (from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.) to make it possible for patients who cannot see us during the week.
According to a recent article from CTV, the average one-way commuting time in the GTA is 42 minutes. If you’re in York Region (which many of our patients are), add on another 11 minutes to bring the average commuting time to just under an hour. Multiply that by two, and that’s nearly two hours of the day just to get to and from work…that doesn’t include errands, social commitments, volunteering or taking family members to activities or appointments. Time really does fly!
There are some dental offices in Richmond Hill that are open part of the day on Saturday, but those appointments tend to fill up quickly and this can delay seeing a dentist in a timely manner. The Canadian Dental Association recommends seeing a dentist regularly (i.e. every six months) for a checkup and cleaning. If we worked a partial day on Saturday, it could be difficult for some patients to see a dentist as often as they need to.
For these reasons, our team is available to serve patients for eight hours every Saturday, and we’re open two nights during the week (Monday and Friday) until 8:00 p.m.
Convenient Booking Options with Helpful Reminders
We recognize that one way to book an appointment does not work for all of our patients. Some patients want to call us or to book an appointment with a calendar in front of them, others like to book it at the end of their appointments (so they remember to do it) and our online booking option is growing in popularity because many of our patients prefer to add the appointment to an electronic calendar.
It’s also important to us to remind patients of an upcoming appointment. Depending on their preferences, we will call, text or email patients one week as well as one day before their appointment to confirm or reschedule an appointment.
At Hummingbird Dental, we love what we do, and we’re here to make sure our patients maintain their oral health and hygiene.
