Dr. Rita’s office is the closest, 5-star reviews one that I could find on Yelp. They open until 6:00, which is perfect for those who get off work late like me so I was able to get an appointment with them even when I called in pretty late in the afternoon. I’m very happy that they explain and answer every questions, even through text message. During Covid-19, it’s great that they send out a Wellness form for patients to fill out and submit before coming in. I thought I would have to come back on another day to have my braces put on but they had everything done for me on the day, which saved me time since it’s hard for me to have a day off with my work schedule. I’m glad that I chose her to entrust with my braces!!

I am so grateful that I have found Dr Rita and Breeze Ortho. I agree with all the other 5-star reviewers that Breeze Orthodontics with Dr Rita Chuang is your best option for getting your smiles perfected in South Bay. She treats the person behind the teeth holistically and is well versed with expansion treatment mechanics that optimizes the patients’ airways and relieves pressure from their TMJ. I know of many patients who travel to see her from out of state and even country because she is clearly worth the travel. Dr. Rita is not only extremely knowledgeable, she is clearly passionate about her work and treats her patients like they are her family. She is very patient and great with her patients, especially with the little ones- my kids love her! I love that despite her Ivy-league training and numerous credentials and awards, she is so down to earth and explains her plans in ways that are easy to understand. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family!

Melanie M. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Rita and her staff are amazing! My daughter is 8 years old and in the first stage(s) of orthodontics care and everyone has been so kind. They take their time educating us on what my daughter’s plan is and everytime i call or have questions they are always on top of it!  I highly recommend coming here- all i see are smiles when i come to visit!!

Ming H. from Rolling Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough wonderful things about Breeze Orthodontics!  I have been a patient there for almost one and a half years and the fact that I always feel excited about going to my appointments with Dr. Chuang.  Dr. Chuang and her entire staff are not only on the cutting edge of orthodontia, but they also go out and make every appointment fun.  They always answer every single question I have very patiently. Dr. Chuang is extremely knowledgeable and kind.  I recommend Breeze Orthodontist to everyone I know!

Dr. Chuang is the best! I went to Dr. Chuang because I had a dreadful overbite that made me look like Homer Simpson. Dr. Chuang’s skills are seriously amazing!!!–I’m only half-way through my treatment & the resemblance to Homer is already gone!!! Besides being amazingly skilled and knowledgeable, Dr. Chuang is super sweet– she’s always smiling and always patient with my questions. I wish I had found her earlier. I could have saved myself from years of ridicule . . .Being called Homer Simpson wasn’t fun for me. Because of Dr. Chuang, I now have the smile I’ve always wanted. I really cannot thank her enough. Dr. Chuang is the absolute best!!!!! I love her!!!

Glenn M. from Gardena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Rita Chuang for orthodontic work by my dentist and will surely be thanking her for her referral.  Everyone at Breeze Orthodontics has been very friendly and helpful.  Dr. Chuang was very nice and professional.  She examined my teeth during my consultation visit and explained to me the problems I had with my teeth and what needed to be fixed.  Tiffany went over the treatment plans and the prices.  She was very patient and answered all my questions and concerns.  I went in set on getting braces, but with her help and information, I decided on getting the invsialign treatment.  I had pictures taken of my teeth by Natalie and she was very professional and efficient.  I was amazed how painless and easy everything has been so far.  Breeze Orthodontics seems to have all the state of the art technology.  I instantly saw 3D models of my teeth.  I am looking forward to working with Dr. Chuang and her staff in getting my teeth to be nice and straight.  I will refer them to family and friends.

Christian M. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a great visit with Rita Chuang. I had cracked my retainer since I grind my teeth and needed a new retainer that wouldn’t break. When I got there the staff was helpful and friendly throughout my visit. They understood my problems and knew exactly what to do. They were very prompt and told me about different options I had. Dr. Rita was very informed on how to fix my retainer and made me a new one that is better suited to me personally since I grind my teeth. We decided what was the best fit for my needs and I couldn’t be happier. She also gave me exercises that I can do daily to help strengthen my tongue. Overall, it was a great visit and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an orthodontist.

My son is 9 and ready for braces and we took him to several orthos to get dvices and quotes. We had best experience and great explanation from Breeze Ortho. Doctor is very detail and explained to us what needs to be done. We decided to have Breeze to do his braces. Looking forward to our sonss teeth done professionally.

My daughter wore Invisalign and is now on her last leg with the aligners (retainer). Dr.Rita saw my daughter every visit and made sure to connect with her and keep her on point with her care throughout the duration. All the staff is helpful and tries their best to accommodate you with scheduling new appointment. We were always seen within 15 minutes of every appointment and always left feeling like they truly cared.

Net Z. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just want to say thank you for my Invisalign treatment. Since I started with my treatment a long time ago, I definitely would say Jordan is phenomenal as well as James. When I went to have my Invisalign delivered, James did it all perfectly in just one time. He is funny and establishes good rapport with the patient. He makes sure to tell you step by step process as he does the treatment. I am very happy and I can’t wait to finish my treatment ASAP.

Barbara C. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rita and her staff go above and beyond to make sure the invisalign work to your complete satisfaction.  I started my invisalign with another dentist who had no idea what she was doing and I needed to find someone quickly to get me back on track.  I was very impressed with the level of experience and care I found at Breeze Orthodontics.  I am very picky and I would highly recommend going to Dr. Rita as braces and invisalign are their focus so they are pros.  Don’t make the mistake I made going to some random dentist who puts out a flyer advertising invisalign and making me the guinea pig!!!

My daughter and I saw Dr. Rita for Invisalign and I absolutely could not be more pleased with both the results and her professional service. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive, and the staff is welcoming and helpful. We always feel welcomed and at ease when walking into their office. Dr. Rita went above and beyond by reaching out to my daughter’s dentist and oral surgeon to discuss treatment options. I recommend her practice for your orthodontic needs.

C. from Southwood, Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chuang is an amazing person and her staff are very kind, diligent, and very dependable. When I came here for the two years that I had my braces every time they would welcome me very happily and the service was very good. I definitely recommend if you are getting braces to come to this office because it is the best around and you can’t beat the customer service.

We did a lot of homework and checked out numerous orthodontist, so you don’t have to waste your time. Dr Rita Chuang, by far, impressed us the most with her wealth of knowledge and experience as clinical director at an Ivy League institution, the University of Pennsylvania. That’s not all, she is also twice an Ivy-Leaguer, having attended both Cornell University and UPenn. She also went to USC dental, one of the best dental schools. One would imagine somebody with such high accolades would be out of reach and snobby. Quite the opposite, she is warm, down to earth and has immense level of meticulousness and patience. She made our son, Ethan, who’s normally very nervous around medical professionals, feel right at home. So much so that he eagerly looks forward to his appointments. The entire staff here are very sweet and always accommodating. We did alllll the homework so you don’t have to. We are so glad we made the right choice to come here and you will definitely too.

Annie C. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


During my braces treatment, Dr. Eckhardt transitioned to Dr. Chuang but the process was so smooth and Dr. Chuang was super friendly, understanding, and accommodating. Not only did she always keep me on my toes about wearing my rubber bands but she never lost her patience which is impressive because I was pretty bad with my rubber band wearing. Everyone in the office is welcoming and lovely to talk with and making appointments and contacting the office is super convenient and always accessible!

I was extremely impressed with the staff and Dr. Rita. Each person was very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. They went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable despite my not having a scheduled appointment. Dr. Rita and Tiffany broke everything down step by step, explained my different options, and helped  choose the best treatment plan for me. Five stars!

This is the BEST orthodontist for kids and for anyone who wants to get Invisalign. I love my smile! Dr. Rita is not only highly educated but she is also extremely personable. She genuinely cares for her patients and it shows. I have come to respect her for the great work she has done but also the deep understanding she has about how to make her patients feel great about themselves. This is definitely the place to go for braces or Invisalign, you will be happy about your experience.

We are the biggest fans!! Our smile journey started with our young ones, who started with very crooked teeth and now have beautiful, Hollywood smiles. My husband was so impressed with their smiles that he decided that since our lil ones’ experiences were so smooth sailing and their transformations so dramatic, he decided to start his Invisalign treatment as well. I was the final holdout, because I had been okay with an okay smile. Now that his smile is impeccable, and stunning, I must admit, I decided that it’s time for to take the plunge and embark on my own smile transformation. Now people think our whole family are models with our beautiful smiles 🙂 You should come here, you will be so happy you did and your grills would definitely thank you!

D. T. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very nice staff, knowledgeable & informative. Dr Rita is always great, very sweet, personable and makes sure she checks on you even if one of her staff is working on you. Technology is key and they are up to speed! My Invisalign Trays were designed from Xrays, pictures & measurements. When they were fitted, it literally took minutes…the bumps were added & the Trays heated onto my teeth with ease & efficiency! What a great experience. I’m looking forward to the results.

Karrie Belmont (Source: Google)


I’m so happy my dentist recommended Dr Rita Chuang to be his orthodontist! She is very personable and works wonderful with kids! My son was nervous at first but after she explained everything to us, it put him at ease! Her entire faculty is amazing and so friendly. Her establishment is very clean and very professional! I highly recommend as well!!

Ian K. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me just say first that I have NEVER had such an OUTSTANDING experience with a healthcare professional!!! I started treatment with Dr. Eckhart and even with nightly retainer wear, my front teeth shifted and broke the retainer. Rather than purchase replacement retainers ($500 each set!), Rita offered to give me an entirely new treatment for a reduced fee…even though I completed my treatment under her predecessor. Who does that?!! She even went above and beyond fixing the shifted teeth! The new treatment fixed my overbite, helped improve my breathing, and better aligned my canine teeth (something aesthetic that I requested midway through treatment and she made possible by adding trays at no extra cost). Tell her exactly what you want to achieve (smile-wise 😉 and she will do her best to make it happen! Everyone at Breeze is competent, kind and works hard to give their patients amazing smiles! PS: I created a Yelp account just to share about my amazing experience with Dr. Rita!

Cathy N. from Wilmington, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rita is the BEST ! My son has been getting his phase 2 treatment here. Between the original visits and the start of his treatment, the ownership changed ( Dr. Eckhardt retired ), but we are so pleased with Dr. Rita ! She is very passionate about her job and great with kids ( she’s friendly and explains things very well ) ! I knew this place was great when they kept telling me that my daughter wasn’t ready yet ( despite her crooked front teeth and severe underbite ). Dr. Eckhardt and then Dr. Rita wanted her to loose more baby teeth in order to be able to do hopefully just one phase, when others were ready to start a few years ago just to get their $$$ knowing down the road she would need more treatment. I think they told me to come back the next year and the year after etc for 3 or 4 years now ! My daughter hopes this is the year but I trust whatever Dr. Rita tells us ! Another important fact is that she’s available all day every day, it makes finding an appointment very easy ! I’d recommend her in a heartbeat !

I love this orthodontist!! My experiences at Breeze Orthodontics have been out of this world. I am so grateful to have chosen Dr. Rita Chuang as my orthodontist. I was told by many dentists that I had a complex orthodontic case, so I was very careful and spent a lot of time researching on how to get the best orthodontic care for my needs. From my research, I found that it’s very important to find a Board-certified Orthodontist. Most people may not know this, but not every orthodontist is board-certified. I had consults with 5 different orthodontists, 2 of them have told me that my case was beyond their abilities. I asked for recommendations from my dentist whom I trust, and he recommend that I go see Dr. Rita Chuang since she served as the clinical director at UPenn and have treated many complex cases. Breeze Ortho was an hour drive from my place, but my impeccable experience was totally worth the drive. From the first consult, Dr. Rita Chuang was very patient and kind. She took the time to explain my condition and treatment plan in great detail. She provided different options for addressing my problem, and patiently answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable and confident with her competence and she came up with a customized plan that I hadn’t heard of before in my other consults. My treatment went very smoothly, and I enjoyed going to my appointments and seeing the staff that have almost become like my family. Also, though she estimated 2.5 years for my treatment, I was done in 1 year and 10 months. She under-promised and over-delivered. My smile turned out amazing, and even my dentist was impressed. Even though I live far away, I have enthusiastically recommended all my friends and family, anyone who needs orthodontic care to Dr. Rita Chuang. Many of them go there for their orthodontic treatment now, and all have good things to say about their experiences there. If you care about your smile, you will be smart to go there for your treatment.

I’m so glad I found Dr. Rita. I had broken my retainer because I grind my teeth and needed a new one. She was so friendly and understood what I needed personally to fit my needs. She gave me options on what we could do, and ultimately made me a new retainer that is made of a different material that won’t chip from my grinding teeth. I am so pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend Dr. Rita to anyone looking for an Orthodontist.

Came here for braces and expander for my two cousins. It is a big place with a paradise theme, the waiting room is bigger than most. The wait time was minimal, considering the fact that we hadn’t finished filling out the form once we were called in. The staff is so friendly, always smiling, and Dr. Rita is willing to tell you just about everything to the best of her knowledge about your kids dental issues. Provides beverages, coffee and water, and when we came the staff gave us little gummy candies. At the end of the day, we are leaving with two Damon brackets orders as well as a discount! Can’t wait to come back and get our braces! Amazing place, definitely recommended for the best dental care possible!

Alex R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thanks to Yelp I’ve found my orthodontist! The staff are wonderful and clearly an extension of Dr Rita’s expertise, bedside manner and patience. As for Dr Rita I’ll echo all the other reviews – she’s extremely smart and knowledgeable while also being very compassionate and patient. She builds trust by taking the time to explain symptoms and the pros/cons of options. And on top of all that she’s one of the few Board-certified orthodontists in the area. One visit with Dr Rita reinforces why specialists exist. My dentist has always gone through the motions but didn’t have much to offer in terms of comprehensive oral advice. Shoot I didn’t even know my teeth were in need of adjustment and how that was impacting my TMJ. Until today. Breeze has the latest tech – 3D modeling, head X-ray, etc – none of which if ever seen let alone used at my Dentists office. This was my first experience with what comprehensive should look like and I’m so relieved I found Breeze

I am on my 9th aligner (of 13) and I am so happy with my results so far! I really have seen a difference. (progress pictures don’t lie) Like many people, I had braces back in high school and since then my teeth have shifted significantly. I was referred to Dr. Chuang from my regular dentist, and in the initial consultation I didn’t have to say any of my concerns they could tell from the x-rays and exam. It made me feel like my “personal preference” wasn’t just me being picky, but was really things I could fix. I went in really wanting Invisalign and was so happy with the treatment plan. They explained everything very clearly, what to expect, the attachments and how many times I would have to come in. (And as a working professional the fact that I only had to come in every few months was AMAZING and the hours work well with my schedule) My favorite part of picking up my aligners was seeing the digital view of how your teeth will move, it’s so cool! I am very happy with my treatment so far, Dr. Chuang and her staff and my experience all in all. Thank you Dr. Chaung and can’t wait to see my end results!

I always look forward to my visits to Breeze Ortho! Dr. Rita Chuang and her staff are very accommodating and kind! Dr. Rita is very detail oriented and always makes sure everything is well taken care of before I leave. I am happy with the results I am seeing after almost 2 years of my Invisalign journey with Breeze Ortho. If you live in South Bay, I’d definitely recommend Breeze Ortho! Dr. Rita and her team are fantastic, fun and very skilled professionals of their field! 🙂 Please keep up the great work Dr. Rita and team!!!

First off I’d love to say how Dr.Rita and her crew make you feel absolutely confident and just feel like you’re really being taken care of BECAUSE YOU ARE ! So I found out about breeze Ortho through my aunt since she has been bringing my little cousin in for his braces and she had nothing but great things to say bout them. So I set up my consultation and counted down the days. Finally the day came I showed up and right away I was so amazed with how they explained everything and really informed me as much as possible before I made my decision. I chose to go with Invisalign and at first I won’t lie I was skeptical but once Dr.Rita explainer it in depth I was sure that this was the treatment for me. They kept me updated up until my aligner arrived and throughout the whole process if I had a question I would simply email it and they were always quick to reply! Every visit I had to check up was always something to look forward to not to only see my process but because they truly are great people. I finished my treatment about two weeks ago or so and have been in like live with my smile ever since! I definitely recommend Dr.Rita if you’re looking for an orthodontist that will definitely keep you in good hands. Once again thank you Dr.Rita and the rest of you at Breeze Ortho !!!

Dr. Chuang is an awesome orthodontist! You really couldn’t ask for a better experience. She genuinely cares about you as a person, you’re not just another customer walking through the door. And she is absolutely determined to get all of your teeth in perfect position. At this point I am pretty much in the retainer portion of finishing my treatment and I am very happy with how everything turned out.

Xing Z. from Flushing, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’m glad Dr. Rita took over Dr. Eckhart’s office. It’s still spotless and professionally equipped, but now there are more delicate details to the decor. I want to give a special shoutout to Jordan. Doctors are important, but their assistants can be the reason why their patients stay with the practice. Jordan has such a gentle touch and never manhadles my mouth.

Daphne S. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you want to feel confident about your smile and receive compliments about it all the time, you need to come see Dr. Rita Chuang. This is probably the best decision I have made for myself and my smile, the smile transformation was real. I used to be ashamed of my smile and always covering up my teeth. That changed quickly once Dr. Rita, the teeth whisperer, did her magic on me. My treatment went more quickly than I had expected and I had a whole new brilliant smile in no time. Not only did she straighten my teeth, she also helped me diagnose a TMJ issue that I had endured my whole life. It is wonderful to be pain free. Now, I cannot stop smiling from ear to ear. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Dr Rita. I will forever be thankful to you for changing my life!

Giovanni S. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)

Great vibes once you walk in and great taste in music as well. Staff if also very nice and ready to take care of any of your needs. I will recommend you to invite family and friends to this practice and it will not upset you. 🙂

Lauren B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Seriously the best orthodontist I’ve been to. Dr. Rita is thorough, knowledgeable, and genuinely cares about your smile. I have had braces and Invisalign before (in other states) so this will be my 3rd time having orthodontic work done in my life. At my first consultation visit, Dr. Rita diagnosed me with a tongue tie–something I had my whole life that caused me to have a tongue thrust and a handful of other health and sleep problems that no other provider had diagnosed before. Thanks to her, I now have a cause that I can remedy (including a specialist referral) and can finally work towards the smile I’ve always wanted. I guarantee if you go to just 1 consultation you won’t get your orthodontic work done anywhere else but here. The staff is extremely welcoming–Tiffany in particular is very warm and informative. I highly recommend this practice to everyone and am beyond excited about completing my Invisalign work here.
