Our small and personal office provides a warm and friendly atmosphere that allows our patients to feel at ease. Depending on the season or holiday, you may find our office decked out with fun decorations to make patients' visits feel more welcoming. The comfort of our patients is our first priority. We believe that having a trusting relationship with our patients allows us to obtain the best results. We want to give you more reasons to smile.
We are committed to providing our patients with the best orthodontic treatment in order to create their best smiles. Many of us take our beautiful smiles for granted, not realizing that they also contribute towards our self confidence and personalities. Our team is comprised of Dr. Kathy Vroom, Judy, Nathaly, and Julia. We are excited to restart our internship program with our newest interns, Anusha and Kiera.
We all feel fortunate that the field of orthodontics gives us the opportunity to meet and establish some pretty great relationships with our patients and their families. In fact, Dr. Vroom has started treating the children of some of her former patients!
Located in Annandale, we are very convenient to the Alexandria, Arlington, Springfield, Burke, and Fairfax
We are "in-network" with most major insurances and provide assistance with obtaining insurance benefit information and filing claims for our patients. We are providers for Aetna, BCBS, Cigna, Delta Dental, Dominion Dental, GEHA, Guardian, Humana, Metlife, United Concordia, United Healthcare, and more.
We understand that orthodontic treatment can be expensive, so our office offers zero interest payment plans to make treatment possible and more affordable. We do not use a 3rd party financing company, many of which charge interest. Your initial evaluation is complimentary.

Dr. Vroom was voted one of the top orthodontists by her peers in the Northern Virginia magazine.
We work with both the more traditional stainless steel brackets and offer a cosmetic ceramic style bracket too. Patients can also select from a wide variety of colors which allows them to personalize their braces making their treatment more fun!
It's never too late to get braces!
Braces not only enhances the appearance of a smile, but can also improve the health of teeth and gums. We also work in tandem with your general dentist to address restorative needs such as implants, bridges, and crowns.
Adults are typically more compliant than children which allows for better results.
We ideally prefer same day retainer delivery for our patients when their braces are removed. Not one of our patients, but need a new retainer? Give us a call! We can help you get a new retainer even if you have never received treatment with us. We create our Essix style (clear) retainers in house which allows for a same day turn around time.
We will work closely with your oral surgeon to address skeletal discrepancy cases. Sometimes ideal occlusal results cannot be obtained with braces alone. We treat underbite, open bite, and more serious overjet cases in conjunction with surgery. In these cases, patients have a pre and post surgical phase of braces as part of their treatment plan.
For patients who want a brighter smile after orthodontic treatment, we offer teeth whitening. Custom trays for bleaching are fabricated for a more exact fit. Patients have the option of choosing from a starter kit with 2 trays and bleaching syringes for $325 or simply purchasing refill syringes to replenish their supply.
Dr. Kathy Vroom
Dr. Kathy Vroom attended the University of Virginia (go Hoos!!) as an Echols Scholar and graduated in 1988 with a major in Biochemistry. She continued her education at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry graduating first in her class in 1992, immediately followed by a postgraduate orthodontic residency at VCU in 1994.
In her spare time, Dr. Vroom keeps busy with various professional and family activities. She is a CPR instructor to her fellow dentists for the Northern VA Dental Society, mentors office interns (future dentists or orthodontists!), and is a recent empty nester with her son departing for college at William and Mary (go Tribe!).
In Dr. Vroom's spare time, she enjoys cooking, biking, masters swimming, golfing, boot camp (helpful to counteract the cooking), traveling, and reading.
"If you are looking for a wonderful orthodontist who is trustworthy, honest, patient-oriented, and extremely personable, Dr. Vroom is the person to go to. Without her orthodontic work, I wouldn't still be receiving so many compliments on my teeth and I can finally smile with confidence.
The office has a welcoming and friendly environment and Dr. Vroom is truly the best anyone can ask for. She is such a down-to-earth person and not once did I feel uncomfortable in the office or dental chair.
I could not give a higher recommendation..."
"Both my sister and I have received dental work at Dr. Vroom’s orthodontic practice. Her work was phenomenal and I could not be any happier with my smile! Dr. Vroom has always made me feel comfortable and relaxed. In fact, my experience has been and continue to be outstanding! My monthly appointments have always gone smoothly. The office is well organized, clean, and pleasant. Equally, the staff is extremely professional, courteous, and friendly.
Thank you, Dr. Vroom!"
"Incredibly skilled, reasonably priced, extremely personable, very prompt, a lovely office and office staff, I LOVE this orthodontics practice. Like, I REALLY LOVE it! Every month I had to drive some distance in order to get my son here, and every month I left happy and satisfied. My son has a great smile, and Dr. Vroom did wonders with one tricky tooth in particular. She worked well with our dentist (whose teeth she had also straightened and who also raves about her!). She's real--smart, funny, helpful. You are paying money for Dr. Vroom's extraordinary skill, not the latest gadgets and upgrades for her office... Go now! RUN to her office!!"
