Do you have evening hours?
My office is open 9-6 P.M, Monday- Thursday. I do not have any evening hours. Our last appointment available for a patient booking is at 5 P.M.. Many years ago I tried having a late day on Wednesdays, but I found I was not comfortable seeing patients after 6 P.M., since by that time I was usually tired and I felt I wasn't able to consistently do my best job on my dental procedures.
In fact if I have a demanding dental procedure(crown preparations, endodontics), I try and have my patients book it by two pm or even earlier, since I, like most people, have the most energy and can maintain my best concentration during the first half of the day. If possible I try and schedule easier procedures towards the end of the day( fillings, crown try ins, and cleanings)
