What We Believe

We believe that life is about the people we meet and the happiness we share. We are passionate about people and so we accumulate relationships (not things!). We laugh often and smile more. Research even shows that smiling can make you happy. And happiness is contagious, in a good way. Life is beautiful. Live your dream. Do what you love. For us, that just happens to be orthodontics.

Your Kids

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends your little ones be screened around age 7 for developmental problems in the jaws and permanent teeth. Some problems are simply easier to correct and better for your child when treated early. Early intervention orthodontic options at our Claremont, Sierra Madre, and South Pasadena orthodontist locations include expanders, growth modification, and braces.

Your Teens

Early adolescence is the perfect time to start comprehensive orthodontic treatment. At Wu Orthodontics, we believe in helping our patients build self-confidence. Our braces treatments include clear braces and metal braces. Our Invisalign Teen® treatment helps them achieve a confident smile without all the metal!

Yourself

Our adults deserve an amazing smile too! Whether your teeth shifted after childhood braces or you’re ready for a full smile makeover, our team is here to help. Wu Orthodontics offers traditional braces, as well as adult Invisalign® treatment and clear braces for a more discreet appearance. Other Wu Orthodontics adult patients are treated with active aligners and retainers.
