Why we are special
Our Job Is To Make You Feel Confident On Your Smile
Charming Smile Orthodontics offers patients of all ages with full spectrum of orthodontic treatment. Our treatment spectrum spans from early intervention (as early as 7 years old) for crossbite or jaw size discrepancy/asymmetry, to straightening teeth with braces or Invisalign even for elderly patients. Our most unique feature is that we’re equipped with innovative techniques that can move teeth faster and therefore reduce treatment as much as 50%.
We offer top-of-the-line, individualized orthodontic services for our patients in a boutique practice environment. You will never experience a overcrowding clinic, and you will see your doctor in every visit to receive firsthand care, instead of seeing different technicians. Our patient-oriented culture supports our efforts to provide reliable, professional assistance for orthodontic needs of both children and adults.
Braces for children and adults
Every person deserves a better smile
It’s never too late nor too early for braces. It’s a matter of type of existing issue, and a matter of how much improvement you like for your smile and dental health. If you’re looking for quality treatment in a boutique setting with high level privacy and individualized care, then Charming Smile Orthodontics is the right place for you. Our professional team is here to guide our patients and their families every step of their orthodontic journey.

Digital 2D and 3D cone beam CT imaging
Cutting edge technology for optimal diagnostic value
Charming Smile Orthodontics is dedicated to using the latest technological advances – such as our digital panoramic and cephalometric unit and 3D CBCT imaging – to ensure accurate diagnosis and provide the highest-possible treatment quality.
We also welcome referrals from dental colleagues whose offices are not equipped with such technology.
Facial growth modification
American Association of Orthodontists recommends all children get a checkup with an orthodontist no later than age 7
Our orthodontic specialist can spot on subtle problems with jaw growth or emerging teeth. Some issues warrant early treatment which allows an opportunity to guide jaw growth, lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth, correct harmful oral habits, improve appearance, guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position, and create a more pleasing arrangement of teeth, lips and face. Early treatment (if needed) can prevent more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. In some cases, the orthodontist will be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.
Best treatment outcome with team effort
Certain cases requires expertise from different specialties to achieve the best treatment outcome either esthetically or functionally. We can coordinate and communicate with your primary care dentist and specialists of your choice. If you don’t already have one, we also have a strong team of extraordinary specialists that can provide advice and treatment with a strong team approach.
Only 1 in 3 orthodontists is board certified
We are devoted to provide patients the highest standard of care. Dr. Chou is persistently strived for excellence and therefore was able to keep advancing from being the top among her 370 dental classmates, to the top tier of the extremely competitive specialty after many rigorous steps. Recognition by the American Board of Orthodontics of being the top among all orthodontic specialists is a standard feature we provide that benefits each and every one of our valued patient.
