Did you know you can get started with your orthodontic treatment from the comfort of your own home in 2 easy steps?
Once we’ve reviewed your submission, our treatment coordinator will contact you to discuss your custom treatment plan and affordable payment options.
TIPS and TRICKS
To get the best photos
- Have a family member or friend take the pictures
- Please take photos in a well lit room and/or use your flash
- Hold the camera close to your teeth
- Pull your lips away from your teeth (fingers or spoons)
How It Works
Please submit the information in the fields below. After reviewing your photos, we will reach out to you to schedule a virtual consultation with your doctor and treatment coordinator, at your convenience!
Include your six photos, matching what you see below. You can use your fingers or spoons to assist in retracting your cheeks. In bright lighting, hold your camera horizontally and get as close as you can to your teeth, while still showing the whole mouth. In any photo you take and the example is biting down, please stick your tongue to the roof of your mouth and as far back as possible, and bite on your back teeth. The more detail and clarity, the better your doctor can use these photos for the diagnostic process.
We look forward to creating your smile at Varghese Orthodontics!

Although information stored on our patient management system is encrypted, most email services (ex. Hotmail®, Gmail®, Yahoo®) do not utilize encrypted email.
When we send you an email, or you send us an email, the information that is sent is not encrypted.

In addition, once the email is received by you, someone may be able to access your email account and read it.
HIPPA guidelines on email state that if a patient has been made aware of the risks of unencrypted email, and that same patient provides consent to receive health information via email, then a health entity may send that patient personal medical information via unencrypted email.
