Before Your First Visit
Arlington Smile Center is a comprehensive dental office unlike no other in our focus. Our office is fee-for-service practice and we never over book patients. We allow ample time to not make you feel rushed during your visit. We accept all insurances if you can select your own dentist. We have a culture of mutual respect, passion, integrity and joy. Our mission is to elevate the standard of care, our team members enjoy personal growth, lifelong learning, and have a positive outlook. We are a true family practice, and we see infants, children and adults. We also have a functional and holistic approach to care focusing on airway and complete health dentistry, and we are always looking for patients who value wellness.
The quickest and easiest way to make an appointment at our office in Arlington, Virginia, is by clicking the link below:
The link will let you choose the type of appointment you want. If the date seems too far away, we will often ask if you want to come in earlier and put you on a short call list. Once you make the appointment online you will be sent a link to fill out all the new patient forms, and we would be so appreciative if you could fill out those forms as soon as you get the link to hold your spot. It really helps that when we call to move your appointment earlier you already are in our system.
We also have a patient portal that Dr. Roca uses to send you clinical notes and photos from your appointment. In order to get those notes, you need to look out for an email from onpatient.com and accept the invitation to join the patient portal. Although each family will only have one portal, we need each family member to accept their own invitation. For example, a family of five has one portal but will receive five invitations and each invite needs to be accepted. It gets confusing, so if you have any questions please reach out. These invitations expire so please sign up for the portal from the invite as soon as it is received. If you are a new patient we ask that you check in for your first visit in the portal as well to answer even more questions for us. Dr Roca really likes when these questions are answered in addition to the new patient forms link so she can focus on her evaluation with all the time she has you on her schedule.
After you have made your appointment you can TEXT us directly at 703-454-5650 or CALL us at 703-237-7622 (ROCA) and we will be happy to assist you. If your message is for Dr. Roca, once you have accepted the portal invitation, you can message Dr. Roca directly through the portal. If you need to send photos or X-rays, please use the office email since you can only attach one PDF or photo at a time on the portal.
During Your First Visit
At your first visit, you will get a full work up by our amazing hygienist, Sindy. We will always be up front with you about the cost of any dental treatment before we have you incur unexpected costs. We all take photos of your mouth, teeth and posture, and take some measurements. We may even scan your teeth with a camera. If you are a new patient wanting to sleep, breathe, swallow and feel less body pain, you could also benefit from an airway exam.
Before the starting any airway treatment, Dr. Roca, will want you to complete a sleep study. Our dentist will give you a Rx to go to a sleep lab and meet with a sleep physician or dispense one of our sleep image rings that are FDA cleared to check for sleep apnea in adults and children aged 2 and older. We are not sleep physicians so we are not diagnosing anything; we are only using this as a data point in treatment.
