Lines for a specific treatment  may be shorter than another. For example: We will have oral surgeons who are only providing extractions and hygienists who are only providing cleanings. The line for extractions is generally shorter than the hygiene cleanings. If you are waiting for a hygiene cleaning, someone who arrived after you for an extraction may be seen before you are.
