What Sets Us Apart
At Luu Orthodontics, each patient is treated with the highest level of care and respect; you are never just another patient. We strive to make sure everyone’s needs and/or concerns are met. We encourage each patient to become actively involved in his/her treatment and to understand what is happening throughout the entire case. Dr. Luu and his staff focus on building relationships with their patients and will always make the extra effort to ensure you feel comfortable and have an uniquely personal orthodontic experience! Below are some other features that set us apart:
Board Certified Orthodontist:
Dr. Luu is Board Certified, a diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics, and a member of the American Dental Association.
What is a Board Certified Orthodontist? www.americanboardortho.com/
- An orthodontist is a dentist who has completed an American Dental Association accredited graduate program in the specialty of orthodontics. A dentist who graduates from a specialty program becomes an orthodontic specialist and is eligible to become board certified.
- A board certified orthodontist becomes board certified through the voluntary examination process of The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO). Involvement in the certification process is a demonstration of the orthodontist’s pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence.
Timing of Treatment:
Dr. Luu feels that each patient should have appliances placed at the most appropriate age when they will get the maximum benefit in the least amount of time. Although there are some problems that should be addressed early, he prefers, if possible, to wait until most (if not all) of the permanent teeth are present before beginning treatment.
Shorter Treatment Time:
By using a low-friction bracket system, the number of office visits, level of discomfort, and overall treatment time may be reduced significantly. This system uses light, active forces and offers our patients more flexibility and convenience but less pain.
Dr. Luu offers several treatment options to suit your specific needs and desires. Some of the treatment options include traditional metal braces, low-friction (or self-ligating) braces, ceramic (clear) braces, and Invisalign.
Flexible Payment Terms:
Dr. Luu’s office makes a strong effort to provide payment terms to suit every budget. This includes in-house financing (interest free), setting up automatic monthly payments for your convenience, and long-term payment options.
Convenient Insurance Processing:
Dr. Luu’s office accepts assignment of benefit from most major insurance carriers. We file the necessary forms as a courtesy to our patients so they are not required to continually fill out reimbursement forms.
Use of Cutting-Edge Technology:
Dr. Luu has a state-of-the-art office with all of the latest technology. We use digital x-rays and a patient management software along with digital patient treatment records that help keep our office organized and efficient. We also offer the very latest in treatment appliances and techniques to provide the most minimally invasive treatment possible for our patients.
Our sterilization protocol is top of the line. The combination of our UltraClave Automatic Sterilizer and our hospital-grade IMS Sealed Cassette System ensures that we exceed all safety guidelines.
