Orthodontics

Our orthodontists use the latest techniques and equipment to offer modern braces for adults and children. Our university setting means we also have active interdisciplinary programs and comprehensive care for orthognathic surgery patients, cleft palate patients and craniofacial growth problems.

Consultations

A no-charge consultation appointment is scheduled prior to any treatment. It includes an exam to determine treatment as well as discussion of fees and a credit check to determine eligibility for extended payment options.

Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the first three appointments to review treatment options and give consent before services begin.

Payment options

At your initial visit, a faculty orthodontist will discuss the proposed treatment and associated costs. Once you choose to receive treatment, a second appointment will be scheduled with the person responsible for the account to complete a financial agreement.

If your insurance plan includes orthodontic coverage, we can complete and file the forms for you. Any insurance payments will go directly to you and you will still be responsible for the university contract.

In addition to VCU Dental Care’s payment options, we offer an interest-free office payment plan, which requires an initial down payment followed by equal monthly installments to cover the balance.
