Your First Visit & New Patient Consultation

Choosing your orthodontic provider is a big decision. Our orthodontist and team is with you every step of the way to ensure that you receive the best treatment, care, and experience from start to finish. We utilize the latest technology, and offer a variety of treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve, and you see one orthodontist throughout your entire treatment for better consistency and continuity of care.

Although many pediatric dentists and dentists can and do make referrals to orthodontists for specific reasons, you do not need a referral to see Dr. Katie Doswell. Anyone can come see us without needing a referral! All you need to do is call or text Doswell Orthodontics at 804-256-2808, email us or submit an online request to set up a new patient consultation appointment.


Your new patient exam and any growth observation appointments are fun and easy (and free)! Your consultation will allow you to ask any questions and learn more about your orthodontic treatment in Richmond, Virginia, what tools will be involved, how long it will take, etc.

During your initial visit, we will:

  • Review your oral medical history
  • Take some photos, get a close look at your teeth and bite, and obtain one or two X-rays to evaluate your teeth, bite and growth
  • Create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all your financial options to make your care more affordable

Our team will answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all the information you need to decide which treatment is right for you.


To schedule your initial visit, give us a call at 804-256-2808, email us or submit an online request, and our scheduling coordinator can help you. We look forward to meeting you!
