A: Our team at NVO is made up of the best people in orthodontics. We truly love what we do and are passionate about impacting our patients’ lives, both inside and outside the office.

My team and I are dedicated to the fight against pediatric cancer and have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars and countless hours to battling this horrible disease. Our Ashburn location is the first dental office in the country to have its own Cup for a Cure Starbucks Cafe inside the office!

Our Cup for a Cure Cafe is available to all patients and their guests. For every FREE drink that we pour, we donate $1 to our 501(c)(3) Foundation that benefits pediatric oncology and community needs.

It’s extremely important to wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day in order for teeth to stay on track. Teeth can only move if they have a constant force (the aligners) pushing on them, so if they are not worn consistently, the teeth will not track properly.

Patient acceptance has been great. We’ve found that the ability to offer Propel products has given us an edge in the orthodontic market because people want to see results. It’s especially beneficial when patients have an upcoming event, like a wedding or graduation, because Propel products provide greater predictability and the possibility of shortened treatment times.

Yes, patients often refer their friends and family members because they are so impressed with how quickly they are seeing results!

Greater predictability, greater patient satisfaction, and less chair time!
