THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL ORTHODONTIC WEB-SITE...
...because this is not your typical orthodontist.

The Face Focused approach to your care is markedly different than traditional orthodontic treatment. Our goals are: to pay careful attention to the health of your airway; to give you a more balanced, attractive face; to keep your jaw joints functioning well and free of pain; and to provide you with straight teeth. In the process of achieving those goals, we do not extract permanent teeth or use retractive headgears. Many traditional orthodontists will tell you that Dr. Hang’s approach is “unconventional” and “out of the mainstream”.
We agree. Our patients agree. Dr. Hang’s students agree. And, after you have toured this site, we are confident you will agree as well.
You will meet many of our patients on this site. Some of them came to us with crooked teeth and simply wanted them straightened.
Others had very well intentioned parents who made poor orthodontic decisions on their behalf when they were adolescents. As a result of that earlier treatment, these patients needed help alleviating pain patterns and/or improving their facial appearance. Others knew instinctively that removing teeth and using a headgear was not appropriate and wanted much better for their children. Others have arrived at our office with grinding teeth or snoring problems, only to learn they had life threatening cases of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Many of these patients chose a comprehensive solution to their condition, which has definitely brought sustained joy into their daily existence and has possibly extended their life expectancy.
In most cases, the people you will meet on this site are no different than you (or your children). They started off looking for an orthodontist and got much more than they ever expected when they embraced a Face Focused treatment. Then, when their treatment was complete, they fought off the nerves, cleared the calendar and summoned the courage they needed to spend hours in front of a camera explaining to you why they believe so strongly in our methods. None of them were compensated for their time. They all volunteered to speak out on what they consider to be very important issues for children and adults alike: Non-extraction treatment; better facial balance and appearance; airway health; reversal of previous unsuccessful orthodontic treatment; alleviation of pain patterns; correcting an overbite; and the reversal of Obstructive Sleep Apnea symptoms.
Who is more qualified to give you advice than people like you who have been through the process themselves and are willing to share their experiences? We chose to film our patients relating their personal experiences to you after realizing that they could do it in a far more intimate and meaningful way than we ever could. These videos are not your typical, “Oh, Dr. Hang is wonderful.” testimonials. In 10 to 15 minute individual programs patients describe: the symptoms they had; the treatment they received; the results they got; and the lives they are living as a result of being treated by Dr. Hang.
As you will learn from our patients, your decision regarding the orthodontic treatment you are about to undergo can have lifelong negative - or positive - consequences. Please, spend plenty of time on this site educating yourself before making a final decision.
