Financial Responsibilities


Your appointment time has been reserved just for you. If you cannot keep your appointment, we ask you give us 72 hours notice so that we will be able to fill your time slot. Otherwise, our office procedure is to charge an hourly rate that covers our overhead. Exceptions are occasionally made, but are less likely the less notice we are given. Thank you.


Our Encinitas dentists, Dr. Cathy Santone and Dr. Dietz, as well as our team often take photographs and video to better explain certain aspects of your existing dental health or planned treatment to you. We request your permission to show these photographs and video to better explain treatment options to other patients (as you will be shown photos for the same reason). We also may use these photos and video on our website and online marketing or make presentations to other dentists where the photographs are invaluable by showing the latest techniques and results that can be achieved when treatment is done precisely.
