Welcome to Victoria Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics! Our dedicated doctors and staff can’t wait to give your loved one a friendly and satisfying oral healthcare experience that leaves the whole family with new reasons to smile. Before you reach our Victoria, TX practice, we’d like for you to know some important information about what you can expect. If you have any questions or concerns about what you read below, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Your First Visit
Parents may feel nervous about how their child’s first visit will go, so we want you to know what you can expect. Here are all the steps of a routine appointment:
- First, you’ll need to check your son or daughter in at our front desk. They will alert the rest of our team to your arrival and gather any necessary information they’ll need.
- If you haven’t completed the new patient forms yet, you’ll be asked to do this before the appointment can begin. This way, we can have a full record of your child’s medical history and ensure that our approach is always safe and beneficial for them.
- If you’ve scheduled a pediatric exam, parents can expect this to last around half an hour. Our team will start by thoroughly cleaning your child’s teeth and teaching them about brushing and flossing effectively. Our pediatric dentist will thoroughly examine their mouth and determine if any treatment is needed.
- If you’ve scheduled an orthodontic consultation, this type of visit will last anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. We will capture comprehensive X-rays of their mouth and get to work on planning out the ideal orthodontic treatment.

If your family has no current insurance coverage, many parents feel like quality dental care for their loved ones is out of reach – but it’s not! At Victoria Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics, we’re happy to accept payment plans through CareCredit as a more affordable way to manage oral healthcare costs. These financing options come in a variety of lengths, many of which have little to NO interest attached. If you’d like to learn whether or not you’re eligible, just click on the link below:
If you currently have dental insurance through a PPO provider, our practice will gladly accept it and work with parents so that they can maximize their available benefits for preventive dentistry, restorative options, and more. We enjoy being able to not only treat your child’s dental problems but also help prevent them in the first place! Any questions about what your personal coverage offers?
