Dear [recipient's name]:
I am writing to cancel my daughter's dental exam and cleaning appointment, which is scheduled for this Thursday, February 25th at 3 p.m. We must cancel this appointment because of illness in our family. We would like to reschedule for sometime at least two weeks from now, and I will call you to set up a new appointment.
Thank you for your attention to this matter, and I apologize for any inconvenience caused by this cancellation.
