Right from the beginning I was a little unsure about braces and how I would feel with them, but the staff at Sun Orthodontics walked me through the process of choosing a type of brace that I would feel comfortable with. In my eyes, I feel that they have a true sincere love for their patients and our overall satisfaction.

Ive taken too long to get this card to you. Im so appreciative, beyond words, for the care and time you put into my case. Gem has all of the notes and refers to them often when treating me. You did so much work, just to give me an answer about getting braces, and I want you to know how much I appreciate the time you took and your genuine concern for me as a patient. You are rare and I thank you

I am so pleased with my result and cant thank Dr. Duong enough for the beautiful smile I have now. Her confidence and support really gave me the strength to endure the braces and surgery. I am grateful for her care and wonderful work. Without Dr. Duong, I dont think I would have even considered the surgery!
