First Visit

At Eastern Virginia Orthodontics, we want all our patients to have an educational and comfortable experience whenever they walk through our doors. You can expect the highest quality of patient care at our office, as we work tirelessly to create a treatment plan that works for your lifestyle and personalized needs.

Your first visit to our office should be an exciting experience and something to look forward to. Choosing orthodontic treatment is life-changing, as there are many physical and psychological benefits of having a straight and healthy smile. During your first visit, we’ll complete your consultation exam, and tell you more about our practice and the treatments and services we provide. Our first visit is complimentary, and should last anywhere from 45 min-1 hour. 

Once you’ve scheduled your first exam, we ask that you complete our New Patient Forms online. Please complete the below forms, and then click the “Submit” button.

Making Your Treatment Plan

When the exam is over, we will sit down with you to discuss your course of treatment. If we decide that you will begin treatment now, we will schedule your next appointment that so we can take photos of your face, impressions of your teeth and X-rays. All these records are necessary so we can provide you with the precise and personalized treatment you need to obtain a straight and attractive smile.

Once we’ve taken the records we need, we will then schedule a follow-up visit which will take place in about 2 to 4 weeks. This gives our team the time to go over your records and images, so a custom treatment plan can be designed just for you. We will discuss this treatment plan during your follow-up appointment and then get started. We encourage you to ask us any questions you have and to bring up your concerns. We want you to leave our office with an excellent understanding of what your treatment, and we keep an open channel of communication between you and our team. You can expect us to discuss the following:

  • Whether or not early intervention is necessary
  • The treatment options that will provide the best results for you or your child
  • Whether or not you will need to have teeth extracted before treatment starts
  • The cost of your treatment and available payment options
  • How long your treatment will take
