Our community impact

We go beyond orthodontics

Dr. Scarborough has assembled a diverse and energetic team of positive, can-do attitudes and a wealth of industry knowledge between them. Each team member is proud of where they work, loves what they do, and really cares about you. As the James River Orthodontics family grows, so does Dr. Scarborough’s vision for the Richmond community.

With creative approaches to giving back, Dr. Scarborough knows that his practice can get involved with his community in a meaningful way, beyond just performing expert orthodontic services with modern technology. His philanthropic goals for the practice are just as smile-making as the work he and his team do within their office.

We feel a calling to return that appreciation by giving back as much as we can. We’ve decided that, beyond state-of-the-art technology and expert skills, we can devote as much of our time and energy as possible to supporting ecological and socioeconomic causes in our communities.


We support conservation

Our namesake, the James River, is responsible for providing water to one third of all Virginians. Dr. Scarborough is proud to call conservation and freshwater biology his background before orthodontics. We are committed to doing our part in protecting the James River and educating our community on their role in the conservation of this natural resource. By advocating for and providing funds to local organizations, we can create a deeper impact on our environment and community.


Educating beyond office walls

With our “Back To Education™” program, every time a student or teacher starts treatment, we donate to their school and a school in need.

At the end of the school year, we present each school with a check for the total donations. Keeping a diverse patient population and supporting a wide variety of schools allows JRO to create a deeper impact in Richmond education.
