"You guys, it's a mini miracle. Gwen was so nervous about how her Phase 1 orthodontic treatment was going to go, but it has been so amazing so far! Dr. William Waite is so good with kids!  He totally put her at ease and distracts her when something might be a little scary during treatment. And their office is right here in Los Al!  Today she had her expander put in and she took it like a champ. Yay Gwen"
-- Kellie L
"I saw Dr. William Waite for the first time and was extremely happy with his staff and professionalism. My first impression was very impressive and am very happy... to have him as my doctor. I was never once nervous or scared at anytime so I thank you! Look forward to doing business in the future."
-- Jose T.


“Our family has been the most pleased with the fantastic results achieved by Drs. Kim and Sugiyama. First my sons started treatment in grammar school and both have beautiful straight teeth. Then my daughter started treatment recently as a graduate student, and now I am in orthodontic treatment after the age of 50. The care and attention to details by the doctors and staff is way above par. The facilities are spotless and the appointments are structured to keep you on time." -- Kathy O.


“At Dr. Kim and Dr. Sugiyama’s office we receive personalized and professional care. The staff is very accommodating with our busy family schedule. We are treated warmly when we have to change an appointment time or make an extra appointment due to a broken bracket or any other issue. When we come in for an appointment we never have to wait long. Appointments are timed well so that we get in and get out as soon as possible. I really appreciate the periodic updates from the doctors. The assistants are all very helpful in giving us oral hygiene tips with braces. I always feel comfortable asking questions. Thank you for the personal service you have shown to our family."    -- Martha G.


“Not only have Dr. Kim, Dr. Sugiyama, and their staff given both of my boys’ phenomenal smiles, they have done so much more! Jill and Marcella have gone above and beyond to schedule around our busy schedules, get us in when the inevitable problem arises, and always made us feel welcome and important with a bright smile and positive demeanor. The staff has helped both boys understand the procedures, supported and reassured them in times of concern, and have educated them so well that they want to take care of their teeth! We interviewed four other orthodontists prior to coming to this practice and I am THRILLED that we chose this office. I wouldn’t trust my boys’ smiles to anyone else!” -- Cynthia J.


We love coming here. Everyone is so nice and helpful. The service is great. The price is great and they are very reasonable with making payments to fit your financial needs. We refer this practice to everyone and will always come here for our orthodontic needs. Thanks for all you do in making it a great experience for my children!" -- Dawnette P.


“I have had both of my children treated by Dr. Kim and Dr. Sugiyama. I am so pleased with the orthodontic care that they have received. While my son was pretty ‘ordinary,’ my daughter requires much more. She is not always easy to work with, but the entire staff always made her feel at ease and comfortable each time she comes. The care here is excellent and I appreciate the ease of making appointments as I am busy mom. They are always willing to accommodate my busy schedule.” -- Joyce B.


“Dr. Kim, Dr. Sugiyama, and staff are extremely professional. I spent a little over a year looking for an orthodontic office until I found this practice. The doctors and the staff have always taken the time to explain all of the steps necessary for my child. I will continue to come to Dr. Kim and Dr. Sugiyama’s office for my other children. I feel blessed to have found such a wonderful office.”        -- Crystal M.


“I absolutely love Dr. Kim, Dr. Sugiyama, and the staff at this office. My family has been coming to this office for the past 10 years. They explain the processes and procedures completely and are always willing to work with you. My children have had extensive orthodontic needs and they have worked with us every step of the way. The staff is always bubbly, cheerful, and greet you with a smile. They educate you on what needs to be done and the length of time needed to get the desired results. We are so lucky to have found this wonderful office for orthodontic needs.”          -- Allyson G.


“Both of our children are patients of Dr. Kim and Dr. Sugiyama.

In addition all of their staff is extremely friendly and helpful.” -- Kim M.

We are always treated with respect and kindness. It is always wonderful to know that whenever we come in our appointments are on time and we never have to wait, if only all places were so organized. Thank you for the beautiful smiles of Alexandrea, Katarina, and Elizabeth.” -- Christine S.
