Anyone can be treated at our clinical facility. Please contact us to arrange a convenient time for a consultation appointment. At this appointment an orthodontist will examine you and advise you as to the need for treatment, the timing of treatment and the options available for treatment. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at this appointment. Fees also will be discussed and a credit check will be performed to determine your eligibility for several extended payment options. There is no charge for this appointment.
To contact our appointment desk, please call (804) 828-0843.
A parent or guardian must accompany minors at the first, second and third appointments. This is necessary because we must inform you regarding any planned treatment options and obtain your consent before the treatment can begin.
Our family of patients is composed of people who come directly to us as well as referrals from other dentists, physicians and specialists. Modern braces for adults and children are available. In addition, as a university care center we also have active interdisciplinary programs and provide comprehensive care for orthognathic surgery patients, cleft palate patients and craniofacial growth problems.
Orthodontic patient services are organized into solo and group practices so that you will always see your same attending faculty, graduate dentist and dental assistant during your treatment.
All modern techniques are practiced and the one best suited for your treatment will be recommended. Electronic digital records are a routine part of our operation. Therefore, we can access all of your orthodontic records for reference both during and following treatment.
As a patient in our Orthodontic Clinic, we want all patients to feel at ease. We have designed the clinic with the patient in mind. The Orthodontic Practice is a state-of-the-art facility located in the Lyons Building within the School of Dentistry. The program strives for a private practice setting using up-to-date techniques and equipment.
The practice has its own business manager, practice manager, receptionist and orthodontic assistants. Patient records are computerized and billing, scheduling and record storage are accomplished using a commercial orthodontic office management system.
