Practice Limited to Orthodontics
Orthodontic Specialists. We are a private orthodontic office located in Long Beach. We do one thing only: Braces. Our training, experience, and facility are all dedicated to orthodontics. We offer traditional metal brackets and ceramic brackets. Invisible braces and removable appliances are utilized when feasible.
Hands-On. The doctor is always there, supervising and executing every step.
Old School. We have no problem forming wires from scratch and making intricate adjustments to the wire to create a truly unique, beautiful smile.
Our Mission. We strive to deliver quality orthodontic care at a reasonable fee in a personable, enjoyable environment. Our goal is your satisfaction, not just during treatment, but years later. We want to be remembered for the quality of the work we did, as well as the care that was given.
Please welcome Dr. Thao V Nguyen to our practice. She graduated from USC with honors, and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, the highest level of professional achievement in this field. She is gentle and kind, and will be bringing the latest techniques to our office.
Dr. Michael Katsura is a graduate of Harvard School of Dental Medicine, cum laude. He received his orthodontic training at the University of Southern California. Energetic, sociable, and good-natured, Dr. Katsura has been practicing since 1989, and at the current location since 1996.
Dr. John Moutsatson is also a graduate of the University of Southern California. Sincere and easygoing, Dr. Moutsatson has been here since 1976, along with former doctors, Dr. James Loos and Dr. Eldor Sagehorn. They are all USC graduates. We're as Trojan as it gets. Fight On!
We are located in a professional medical/dental building with ample parking and disability access. We maintain a comfortable, open environment, both physically and figuratively. There is not much partition between the waiting area, the treatment area, and the sterilization area. Everything is done in the open. Parents and friends are welcome to join us in the treatment area, as long as the patient doesn't mind, to ask questions, observe, or just keep company.
We have magazines, wireless internet, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and juice. We get muffins and fresh fruit delivered daily.
