The James River Orthodontics team is engaging, informed, and a positive part of the Richmond community! The team is welcoming, great with kids and adults, and forthcoming with information. The team puts my children at ease… I’d go as far as saying that Dr. Scarborough and his team make going to the orthodontist FUN! I can say my 11 year old looks forward to going in for check ups, and my 8 year old is begging for braces because he wants to be part of the James River experience! Thanks for making us smile!

We absolutely love JRO!! They are so personable and customize your appointment to your needs. My daughter Abbygayle is 8 and I was leary of how she would do with brace. She loves them and looks forward to every appointment. We always know what is going on with her treatment. We could not ask for a better orthodontist.

Dr. Scarborough and the staff… they are, by far; THE BEST and Most Professional Team we have ever had the Pleasure of working with. You will Always be greeted with a friendly Smile from Meagen the moment you walk in. The office is always very clean, the staff always looks tip-top, Dr. Scarborough is always friendly and very professional.

We love JRO! From day 1, we have had such a positive experience. And on top of such great care for my 7 year old, everyone is SO friendly. When our dentist recommended JRO, it said a lot to me that her 8 year old daughter was a patient and they have not disappointed! My daughter actually complains that she doesn’t get to go MORE often! Thanks for making every visit an enjoyable one.

James River Orthodontics is the best place for any of all of our family’s orthodontic needs! We love Dr. Scarborough and all the JRO staff! Everyone in there is extremely professional, knowledgeable, friendly and nice. They’re always there to help (if I’m there with my little ones, they’ll keep an eye on them, if I’m in the chair) and I simply can’t say enough about just how much I love my new smile! 🙂

I would highly recommend James River Orthodontics!  I have a lot of exposure and experience with other orthodontists because of my job. I can confidently say that JRO is one of the best in the country! They have an efficiently run practice, and the staff members are extremely knowledgeable. Dr. Scarborough is awesome! He is extremely talented and takes his time to get to know his patients on a personal level. I am very happy with the results I am getting with my perfect smile!

Got my first set of Invisalign® trays last week. I was very apprehensive about the whole process, but the staff and doctor were very patient and very helpful. They let me take my time practicing putting them in and removing them until I was comfortable enough to leave. Dr. Scarborough also followed up next evening with a phone call to make sure I was doing all right. Orthodonture was a big decision for me, so I really appreciate all the help and support I received from JRO.
