PATIENT REVIEWS

Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Robin P. from Norfolk, VA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

The staff is extremely professional and caring. All appointments run ON TIME if not earlier! Dr. Shivar is excellent with children, especially teenagers. I appreciate the fact that they share all information with you and explain it in a way that both you and your child understands. I never leave the office questioning my child’s care.

Amy was actually excited in getting braces. Her brother, Jacob had it done a few years before and he’s results were fabulous too. So you can imagine the joy with Amy getting her braces off today! The whole process was easy and the process streamlined. Everyone is wonderful and helpful. Thank you!

Hello, my name is Calvin and this is my story. I first came into this office for treatment after my daughter Gabrielle received her treatment for her teeth. She wore braces and her finished results were outstanding. I always knew I needed and wanted to fix my smile. I grew up as a teen hiding my smile and felt like when the timing was right, I would take advantage of the opportunity. From start to finish every staff member here along with the doctors treated me with a supreme level of kindness and professionalism. It was almost like I became part of their family. We would share stories, laugh and that is what I enjoyed the most about every visit during my treatment process. I wore Invisalign on both my top and bottom teeth and the results literally changed my life. I was able to gain just what I needed in life as an adult and that was a level of confidence when I talked to people face to face. The best part was the ending result and that was being able to show off a bright beautiful smile. To all the staff here, I thank you for a job well done!

We LOVE everyone at the office! Ms. Kitty always works so hard to meet the needs of our daughter’s ever changing schedule. Dr. Peluso is wonderful! We actually saw Dr. Shiver at our last visit and he was great as well. However, we will continue to request Dr. Peluso he makes us laugh. We are so pleased with the progress thus far.

My story started after seeing the great work Dr. Shivar did on my mom and sister. I was so impressed that I decided to get my teeth and my sons’ teeth done with braces. All appointments accommodated my schedule and my sons’ schedule with him being an athlete. Also accepting my insurance made it financially a win for me. The professionalism was top notch from all the staff and multiple staff members new me by name. Thank you.

★★★★★

We are a military family who came to Dr. Shivar on a neighbor’s recommendation. We have not been disappointed! He is knowledgeable, friendly, prompt, willing to give a military discount, and knew precisely and immediately exactly how to treat my son’s orthodontic needs. My son even got to get his braces off earlier than expected! All the staff is welcoming, friendly, and helpful as well.

★★★★★

When I first got my braces I was very insecure about my teeth and even the way that the braces looked, but all the staff was very encouraging and patient. Every appointment they were very kind and patient and personal. My teeth were pushed back and crowded, but they were quick to correct this and always asked how I felt, reassuring me that I was the most important person in that room. I wouldn’t have wanted this transformation to happen anywhere else.

I came into Eastern Virginia Orthodontics in 2016, in my senior year of high school, missing my front buck tooth. I had been missing this tooth since middle school because of a procedure I had done to remove it, as it was a baby tooth that refused to come out. However, Dr. Shivar and his amazing team took me in like family and dedicated the next 2 years to help me. I can say without a doubt that I am amazed at my results and so thankful to Eastern Virginia Orthodontics for restoring my confidence back in my smile. This was a life changing journey and I am so thankful to have been introduced to this amazing organization.

★★★★★

I was always really self-conscious about the way my teeth looked, so even though I didn’t like the dentist much, I desperately wanted to go to the ortho to get braces. To my surprise, I actually enjoyed my appointments and the staff were all funny and nice. I’m happy and grateful for the way my teeth look now! Big thanks to Dr. Shivar for taking care of my teeth. I 100% recommend this place

★★★★★

Dr. Frazier sent me to your office for pain associated with my bite. Dr. Andersen went over a multitude of treatment options and was supportive of my choice. Price and payment was a clear and simple process. When Dr. Andersen retired, I was concerned about the continuity of my treatment, but Dr. Shivar has been amazing! I requested several refinements and have been a patient for over three years, and the whole practice has been a pleasure to work with! They happily accommodated my two young children during several appointments. Invisalign was simple and I’m so pleased with my results!

Your Orthodontic Story: Overall our experience was fantastic! From day one to today, “de-band” day. First, I will say that your front desk staff has always been friendly, patient and courteous. Second, the explanations and descriptions on actual work were accurate and easy to understand. Appointment lengths were very short and to the point, never really any long wait times to get in to see the orthodontist. Most important, was the quality of the work and process. They did exactly what they said , and in our case, shorter than expected! We rarely had the brackets falling off or a pokey wire issue. Sure there were some days of pain, nothing a few Advil didn’t fix. I would say to this point were very happy and glad we chose EVO for Marina’s orthodontic care. Her teeth are beautiful. I would absolutely recommend Eastern Virginia Orthodontics to anyone!

★★★★★

Its been 3 long years to get to this wonderful look. It started with a trip to extract my back upper left tooth and possibly and implant. It was suggested that I have Dr Shivar look to see if we could straighten the upper teeth prior to the implant. I have been so pleased with the care and treatment I received at Eastern Virginia Orthodontics. A special thanks to Amy,Cindi and Thimbe and all the other technicians that helped in this process. Finally a big thank you to Dr Shivar for your patience and expertise.

We initially came to Dr. Shivar because my older daughter, MacKenzie, had such a great experience with him. Cameron’s experience has also been very positive. Her teeth look wonderful and we have been very pleased from start to finish. Thank you to Dr. Shivar and the wonderful staff at Eastern Virginia Orthodontics!

The staff here is amazing! They always take the time to ensure that we understand the orthodontic process as well as answer any questions that we may have. They also ensure that our son is comfortable and understands the process. I highly recommend them to anyone needing orthodontic services.

★★★★★

I am 26 years old with very short roots in my four top front teeth. I was happy to use Invisalign to correct my bite in hopes to hold onto my own teeth for a few more years. Overall, Invisalign has been way more comfortable and “invisible” than the traditional braces that I had years ago. I would highly recommend Eastern Virginia Orthodontics to family and friends in the area because of the friendly staff, and skilled Orthodontists.

★★★★★

I am 48 years old and had very crowded teeth. I ignored my dental health for years.  I came in for a consultation and was greeted with professionalism and caring.  I underwent Invisalign treatment for 18 months.  Dr. Shivar and his staff explained every step of the journey and answered every question I had.  It was a very positive experience and the results were great!

★★★★★

Dr. Shiver is amazing. My daughter and I are both under his care. He was very patient with me when I first started and had many questions and also wanted to seek a second opinion before I came back to him. He makes sure to keep you informed of the procedures, is very experienced, and always treats his staff kindly. All the staff are excellent with kids, and they work with your schedule for appointments. I have had nothing but good experiences in all my visits thus far.

★★★★★

The orthodontist, Dr. Shivar, was very thorough in explaining the expectations. He was clear and honest. Christa, the patient coordinator, was amazing. She was very helpful about my insurance and payment options. All in all, great experience and will be using them for my daughter’s orthodontic care

★★★★★

They exceeded my expectations here. I lost my retainer while traveling. I wanted to get a new one quick as my teeth move a lot when I don’t have one. On a Friday hardly any of the orthodontist are open and if they are you have to schedule an appointment for a week out. This place was able to get me in the same day I called and make and give me the retainers the same day all for cheaper then what any of orthodontist said.

I’ve been coming to Eastern Virginia Orthodontists (EVO) for last few years. Received my invisalign treatment and was always pleased with my results and their customer service! My son is currently a patient undergoing his treatment for braces. Thankyou EVO for your great work on our family’s teeth and your consistent professionalism!

★★★★★

My daughter’s orthodontic experience has been fantastic! For about a year and a half, we have been visiting Dr. Shivar and his staff regularly. Everyone is always welcoming and makes us feel comfortable. They are very accommodating and appointments are easily scheduled. I highly recommend Eastern Virginia Orthodontics. Thank you for giving my daughter a beautiful smile!

★★★★★

I got invisalign braces here. I’d asked my dentist for a year and a half for an orthodontist. I’d gone to the same gym as him when I was a child. The third time I’d asked him, he sent me here. I understand why here. They do good orthodontics. But all orthodontists do. What makes it special is that each person here is good at what they do. They care about it. And they’re just nice;)

Corrin R. from Norfolk, VA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Everything about this practice is superior. Every person that works in the office is kind, attentive, and the essence of professional. We see Dr. Anderson and my daughter loves her. I always dreaded going to the orthodontist when I had braces because I knew my mouth would hurt for days afterward. My daughter has never had this experience.

★★★★★

Wow, at age 68 I decided to get my teeth straightened… again! (I had traditional braces at age 14, and didn’t wear the retainers.) Invisalign was what I got and now, 18 months later, I have the teeth I should have had all along! Easy, gentle, and hopeful appointments are over now, now all I have to do is SMILE! (and wear nightly retainer… easy!)

★★★★★

We were very pleased with the doctors, technicians and office staff at Eastern Virginia Orthodontics. Of course we achieved the physical results we’d hoped for, but it was also a pleasure to return each month for his ongoing care. Everyone is so friendly, and the office is extremely clean and well run; even the coffee bar was excellent. I know we will return with our younger son when the time comes to correct his smile.

★★★★★

Sofia got braces at 11, since she had all her adult teeth. Her teeth were crowded and we wanted to get them aligned. We have known Dr. Walker Shivar for many years and we were happy to have him make a plan for her. After 18 months, her teeth look perfect! We are all very happy with how they turned out! Thank you for putting a perfect smile on Sofia’s face.

★★★★★

My teeth were really messed up, with one of my teeth almost completely behind my front teeth. Then I got my braces and within 2 years, my teeth were back to normal. Then for the next 6-8 months were worked on straightening out everything else and eventually get them off. I’m glad I got braces. Thank you Dr. Shivar and all who made it happen

Robyn Polinice (Source: Google)

★★★★★

I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor or staff to see my daughter thru her experience with braces. Dr Shivar and his staff were amazing, always on time, always explained what was happening and what to expect, very friendly and caring. My daughters confidence is at an all time high and we couldn’t thank you enough.

Victorya needed help with her teeth and we were so lucky to find Dr. Shivar and Eastern Virginia Orthodontics. Her journey has been a long one but totally worth it. She now has a beautiful smile with beautiful straight teeth. The staff is exceptional and I would highly recommend them! Victorya is my granddaughter and I could not be more proud of her for facing this challenge with determination and a positive attitude. Am also proud of how she took care of her teeth during this time. Most challenging thing for me was when she had to have four teeth pulled at the same time. Biggest mistake on my part was buying her a milkshake right after that appointment and not being prepared with paper towels for all the drooling. Funny side note is that I used to get phone calls for this practice long before we came here. My phone number is one digit off from theirs. Who knew that our paths would cross like this. Thankful it did!

Staffs here are very friendly and professional. From the receptionist to the orthodontist. I love Dr. Andersen she is so nice and very welcoming. We might not talk about personal life but I feel at home and comfortable with her. She knows what she is working on her staff is always very knowledgable and concern. It’s weird but every time I go in for a check up I feel like Dr. Andersen is my second mom for my teeth lol. This is the place to be. You get the best and right treatment for you and you get treated with respect and feel like family. The best Orthondist I ever have in my entire life come to think I had almost 6 of them.. My teeth looks wonderful and I’m almost done.. I surely miss going there every month. If you want a place where no one judges and feel like family. This is the place 🙂 the atmosphere.. They way the place is decorated the orthodontists will always smile at you and help you out and will make you feel special <3

I was very pleased with Dr. Shivar and his entire team. From the check in system, to the front desk staff, to the dental hygienists and to Dr. Shivar himself everyone was professional and friendly. My initial consult had me wearing Invisalign for up to 12 months. Fortunately, the system worked faster than anyone expected and I was out of them in 5 months. The follow up fitting for the retainer was efficient and simple! I am happy with the results and very pleased with the entire experience.

I am very pleased with Eastern Virginia Orthodontics. All 4 of my children were seen by Dr. Shivar for braces. Dr. Shivar and his staff did an excellent job treating my children. They are very professional and kind. The office staff is wonderful also. They worked around my children’s busy schedules. I would highly recommend this practice.

As ALWAYS we love the staff! Ms. Kitty worked very hard to reschedule two last minute appointments due to end of the year testing conflicts. We ended up going to the Virginia Beach office instead of our usual Greenbrier office. VB office was very nice with a beach vibe. I will say I am spoiled and prefer the Greenbrier office. I love their giant story book theme and the Keurig! Dr. Peluso has the most wonderful bedside manner. He makes the kids feel completely comfortable and he takes the time to chat with the parents as well. The best part is my daughter has only had braces for 6 months and her teeth already look perfect.
