At William Chan and Associates, we provide comprehensive, customized orthodontic treatment to kids, teens, and adults. Dr. Ben Chan, our experienced orthodontist, is committed to making you feel comfortable and cared for while addressing malocclusion (bite alignment issues) and teeth crowding or gaps. To this end, we take the time necessary to provide exceptional service, and we utilize the most advanced techniques and technology available. We also believe that the better informed you are, the more you will enjoy and participate in the teeth straightening process. Furthermore, children will also typically be more cooperative if they understand the purpose of their braces or orthodontic appliances. We want you to know you’re in qualified hands, so we’re always happy to answer questions and address any concerns you may have; simply ask.Schedule an Appointment
While the term “braces” may prompt you to think about metallic brackets that are prominently visible on the teeth, the fact is that many types of braces and orthodontic appliances available today are designed to provide both adults and children with a less noticeable way of straightening the teeth and correcting bite irregularities. Our practice offers a variety of options, including traditional braces, clear or ceramic braces, and Invisalign®!
The American Board of Orthodontics is designed to evaluate and certify orthodontists who have completed an exacting list of criteria, including completing an accredited orthodontics residency and demonstrating the ability to perform the highest standards of care in the safest and most ethical manner possible. Not all orthodontists are board-certified like Dr. Ben Chan, and we encourage patients to seek out one who is. Board-certified orthodontists are expected to remain knowledgeable about the latest advances in their field, and to complete continuing education courses to maintain their certification. This can assure patients that their orthodontist is well-versed in the appropriate modalities for their needs and goals.
We have been going to Drs. Chan and Goodman since the kids’ first dentist visit nearly 12 years ago. The experience has been excellent from baby teeth to braces. The kids are always treated kindly by the staff, and the hygienists and dentists talk directly to the kids about their teeth and brushing habits. They also clearly explain to us (as parents) what is going on, and discuss what the options are based on the situation. There are usually a few options, and they make sure we are comfortable with the recommendations – with time to make informed decisions. This team really cares about their patients and it has made going to the dentist a positive experience!
