Start Your New Smile

At Van Vliet Orthodontics in Highland, NY and Ramsey, NJ, we believe that your first orthodontic visit is your most important one.

The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes seem intimidating, especially for kids. But, your first visit to Van Vliet Orthodontics will be completely painless.

You’ll be welcomed by our team, introduced to our orthodontist Dr. Van Vliet and shown around our office. Our highly-trained, orthodontic treatment coordinator will then take some digital photographs of your teeth. If necessary, a panoramic and cephalometric X-ray. These images are the best way for us to see your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue.

After reviewing these records, Dr. Van Vliet will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your individualized and unique treatment plan. Dr. Van Vliet will point out specific areas of concern and show you what kind of corrections you can expect by showing photos and videos of similar cases.

He will take as much time as needed to answer your questions and decide what kind of treatment is best for you. Dr. Van Vliet and his assistant will then walk you through the process. They will explain everything from scheduling to expected discomfort levels, to finances and payment options.

Our goal is to make sure that no question goes unanswered.
