APPOINTMENTS FOR CONSULTATIONS
Our consultations are in 10-minute appointment slots. Where charged for the consultation, you understand and accept that the minimum you can purchase is a complete appointment (of 10 minutes @ £30) and not individual minutes and that using any time in an appointment is the same as using all of it, so you will be charged accordingly. You agree and accept that you will not be entitled to any rebate, refund or compensation as a result of your not using the full length of time available in an appointment.
IF YOU ARE LATE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
If you start your appointment late you understand and agree that it is generally not possible to exceed the 10-minute appointment time as there will usually be other patients waiting for their pre-booked appointment time slot after yours. We reserve the right within reason to terminate the video consultation when the 10 minutes have expired or to charge for another full 10-minute appointment if there is time available and no other patient waiting for their appointment. Your dentist will discuss the possibility of extending your appointment should you wish to do this, but you accept that this is often not possible
IF YOU WANT A LONGER APPOINTMENT THAN 10 MINUTES
A consultation is made up of a single appointment. If you wish to have longer than 10 minutes you must request this when making your booking. You will be charged £30 for each additional 10-minute slot you require.

If your consultation is determined by FHDC at its sole discretion to have been disrupted FHDC will refund the amount of the consultation charge to the credit/debit card used at booking.
