Mason W. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I came here to get a 3D scan and was in and out in less than 10 minutes. Dr. Chong and her staff were very friendly and helpful. The office was well-equipped for COVID-19 distancing and they took all the necessary precautions, even had an automatic hand sanitizer dispenser at the front desk that keeps on giving. 🙂 Dr. Chong stayed back after the scan to answer all my questions. Thanks Embrace Smiles!

Dr. Chong was recommended to me by a good friend of mine. I was looking for somewhere to take my son to get braces. Everyone at this office was very nice, very accommodating and made us feel welcome. He just got his braces off and we are completely satisfied with the results. He was always self conscious of his smile, and now he can’t stop smiling. If you’re looking for excellent results and great customer service consider going to Embrace Smiles Orthodontics, you will not be disappointed.

Very nice setting, modern equipment, friendly staff, kids love it. We were first drawn to this clinic by a post card for a free consultation. But decided to go with Dr Chong right then after she did an Xray for my daughter and explained the whole procedure and cost. Affordability, credentials of the doctor (graduated from an Ivy league school), welcoming atmosphere, kids friendly, flexibility of appointment schedules, all help me to make decision. Also they have a unique incentive for kids to earn points during each visit, and use that to claim a prize by some point (including an ipad), helping them motivated to keep hygiene. After just 1 month treatment, my daughter’s teeth are getting closer and improved a lot. It’s only half year now, and I could see all teeth are in their correct position and she’s already using rubber band during night. So far so good, and no complaints I could think of. Highly recommended.

Dr. Chong is a perfectionist. Yesterday she added braces on my daughter’s bottom teeth although we were only there to adjust the upper teeth braces. She is also patient with my questions, even a couple times we chat something not related to our appointment 🙂 She is efficient so that our waiting time is always less than 10 minutes. If you like planet earth shown on their TV, you feel no waiting time :D. The office is clean, machines are new technology, the assistant Ivy is very pretty and nice, and the front desk is always very friendly. I feel my daughter is in good hands and have recommended to my friends.

This office is hands down the best one I have ever been to. Everyone is so nice and generous. They really take their time with the whole process and are always making sure you have the best experience with every appointment. They really care about all of their Patients and their results. Overall, I’m very happy with my whole experience!

Quick update. My teeth are looking really good now. I had my braces done with Dr. Chong and it has been a great experience. Dr. Chong is an amazing orthodontist and spent a lot of time explaining all the options and treatment plan to me. I could really feel that Dr. Chong cares about her patients and is willing to go the extra mile. During my appointment I immediately felt welcome and was impressed with the modern office. It’s very clean and comfortable.

★★★★★

Had an amazing experience with Dr Chong when I had my awful smile fixed by her in Philadelphia. I actually started off in my Periodontics treatment by her. I was so happy with her treatment that I signed her on as my Orthodontist as well. Throughout my treatment, Dr Chong was great and always patiently walked me through every step. She is truly a top Professional in her field; knowledgeable, warm, caring and friendly.I have recommended friends to Dr Chong and everyone was so impressed by her and very satisfied with her treatment. Thank you Dr Chong!

Embrace Smiles Orthodontics is the absolute best. I wore braces for only 1.5 years, and I am amazed by the results. The staff is always very nice. The service is exceptional. If you ever need to get braces, I recommend Embrace Smiles Orthodontics. Dr. Cherissa Chong is a professional. Thank you so much!

★★★★★

Thank you Dr. Chong and to the whole Embrace Smiles Team! It’s been quite a journey and I’m very thankful to be assisted by these wonderful people. I had a few other consultations before I met Dr. Chong… I thought I had a tough and super expensive case. I was previously suggested to get braces on (to fix my underbite/crossbite), to get implants for my missing molars, and possibly get a jaw surgery to fix my jaw problems. Then, I finally found Dr Chong… she fixed everything with just braces. No need for implants and jaw surgery. Definitely giving her a 5+ rating!

Corey G. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Chong is not only an incredible orthodontist, but a very caring human being as well. She made me feel more than just a regular patient everytime i came to see her. i had braces for about 2 years and the only thing i loved more than the process was the end result. The thing i admire most about Dr. Chong is that she make her patients problem her problem, which isnt something you see in your average doctor. I remember her saying one day “when my patients are happy, im happy”.

Aaron C. from Oxford, United Kingdom (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I am impressed by the excellent service and professionalism I received at this clinic. Dr Chong has an in-depth knowledge of braces, and has provided great advice on the best treatment plan for me. She is very friendly and alway takes the time to ensure my braces are fitted well each session. I highly recommend this orthodontist. Thank you Dr Chong!

I had a medical need to get Invisalign treatment for my jaws. I was too scared to wear braces as an adult. I consulted with Dr. Chong who not only cleared my doubts about the treatment, looks, but built my treatment plan to support my other dental issues. In addition, Embrace Smile’s staff is super organized, friendly and warm. My whole 1.5 years of treatment went smoothly and it was only due to the top notch staff and Dr. Chung’s priority to support me as a patient. I am glad I got my Invisalign treatment at Embrace Smiles! Highly recommend!

Linda C. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Chong and the staff are amazing!! They are knowledgeable and friendly. The office is always clean and pleasant. My son started treatment with Dr. Chong about a year ago and thanks to her recommendations, he now has teeth that are functioning in helping him with chewing his food. The price is also reasonable compared to others. I strongly recommend Embrace Smiles to anyone who needs braces.

Ada C. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Chong is extremely knowledgeable and treats every patient with individualized care and a most welcoming attitude. Through the course of my Invisalign treatment, I felt like I was in good hands through and through, especially after learning that she takes gum health into consideration as well (not just tooth aesthetics) when coming up with a treatment plan. If you want a top notch orthodontic treatment at a beautiful, clean facility with the latest technology and a fantastic team, Embrace Smiles is the way to go.

Raj P. from Cupertino, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Chong is great!  If you have any doubts, get an opinion from her last, after you have visited other orthodontics.  We are glad that we found her and visited her.  She not only explains everything in details but does what is necessary and needed, which is very important; no extra x-rays, no extra work, etc.  We have had opinions from other orthodontics and finally choose to go with Dr. Chong for orthodontics work.  We are happy that we did, and as a medical professional, I very highly recommend Dr. Chong if you or anyone in your family needs orthodontic work.

Dr. Chong and her staff are very friendly. They make our family feel very comfortable. Dr. Ching is very knowledgeable and the technology at the office e is top notch. It is obvious that Dr. Chong and her staff really cares about the well being of the patients. Five stars all the way

Linda P. from Hayward, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Embrace Smiles Orthodontics provides high quality care. The entire team  works hard to provide compassionate, thoughtful treatment. In addition the clinic offers prizes as an incentive for children to practice good oral hygiene. Our family has been very thankful for finding this orthodontist!

★★★★★

Dr. Chong and the entire Embrace Smiles family have always cultivated a safe, open and comfortable space. There is no where else I would have rather started my Invisalign journey. Dr. Chong ensures that you are happy with your smile and that your journey encompasses holistic care and support throughout. For all my orthodontic needs, I will always come back to Dr. Chong and Embrace Smiles!

★★★★★

My experience at Embrace smiles with Dr.Chong and her staff was nothing short of amazing. They provide quality care and excellent customer service. The process for my aligners took about a year and the results were GREAT. I’ve had braces in the past from different orthodontists, so to revisit this process with a welcoming environment was wonderful.

Seena E. from Los Gatos, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

What dont i like about this place or the staff!? Always warm. Always friendly. I used to think it was weird everyone says hi, but now i know it is just the type of atmosphere they’ve perfected. Getting anything orally done is scary but Dr. Chong and her staff make it calming and always homelike. I made a great choice to get braces, the choice i made to go through Embrace Smiles was even better:)

Nathan C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I just got my braces off and I have to say the process went really well. Whenever I had a problem the staff helped me right away and tried their best to solve the issue, whether it was a broken bracket or a loose wire. The staff never scolded me for having a broken bracket or anything like that. I am really happy with my results and would highly recommend anyone who is thinking about getting braces to come check this place out.

I came for the consulting session with Dr. Chong because of Dr. Chong’s impressive academic background and all five-star rating for her office Embrace Smiles. My first visit confirmed that the reviews are accurate, Dr. Chong’s staff was very friendly and helpful, Dr. Chong went beyond my questions to suggest the best procedure for the best result. I’m about six months into my treatment now, and the experience is great. Dr. Chong’s staff is very thorough and quick in responding to any request, payment process is easy, scheduling is really flexible, and I received a lots of smiles every visit. Dr. Chong always provided in-depth explanation for any question that I had, her warm personality also makes communication even more effective. I highly recommend you pay a visit to Dr. Chong’s office and talk to her if you are still searching for the best orthodontists in the area.

Dr. Chong is amazing! After consulting many orthodontists who said my daughter’s teeth couldn’t be straightened with Invisalign (and only with regular braces), Dr. Chong said she could, and she did a fabulous job! We are very happy with the way our daughter’s smile has turned out. Throughout the process, which was very easy and seamless, Dr. Chong was very patient and helpful answering all of our questions. Really all the staff are very friendly and seem like they actually care about you. I would 100% recommend Embrace Smiles.

★★★★★

My daughter has just finished her treatment with Dr. Chong and she LOVES the result! I literally can’t stop her showing off her beautiful smile with teeth, and confidence 🙂 We love the result as much as we love Dr. Chong’s practice. From the initial consultation, the Dr. and her staff were extremely knowledgeable and helped us to understand the treatment options and plan. During the treatment, she invited us to sit down and explained the progress and answered our questions. We appreciated a lot for the chats. We highly recommend Dr. Chong. If you need to fix your smile, come down to Embrace Smiles to embrace it 😀

During the half year checkup, we were told her treatment will probably be done in about 6-8 months, pretty fast. So far so good, and no complaints I could think of. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I are both patients here at Dr Chong’s orthodontics office and we both have had an awesome experience here. I have Invisalign and the process was very smooth. Dr Chong took almost an hour to explain the treatment plan to me and explain how braces and Invisalign worked. I eventually chose Invisalign. This office has a machine that took photos of my teeth to digitally scan it in so I did not have to bite down on that molding material some of my friends needed at other places. It made the process much easier. My daughter had the normal braces and the process was also great. She said dr Chong was gentle and felt really comfortable with her. I also like how clean the practice feels. I think it’s important since they are working on my teeth. The weekend hours are also important to us and I couldn’t find another orthodontist that offered that convenience. I recommend Dr Chong to everyone looking for braces or Invisalign.

Hello everyone, my name is Malis. I am one of Dr. Chong original patient from the “City of Brotherly.” I had been coming to see Dr. Chong for my Dentist treatment for over 3 years, ever since her early day of Residency at the University of Pennsylvania. I have to say that my experience with her was of absolute satisfaction. And if i could give her 6 star that i would most certainly do! Not only is she very experienced in her field, she is unique and one of a kind. She is warm, caring, thoughtful and very down to earth. She would make sure that you will get the best care possible. I highly recommend anyone who needs their Dental Care to seek Dr. Cherissa Chong for all of their Dental needs.

Kiersten M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I give Dr. Chong FIVE stars!!! She is the best Ortho EVER! she dramatically changed my smile. Dr. Chong is very thorough in what she does. She is very skilled at what she does. I received treatment for about 2 years under Dr. Chong’s care. Thanks to her I have a straight, healthy and white smile. Dr. Chong met all of my dental/orthodontic needs. she is friendly, patient, warm and welcoming and polite. she listens to what you want and knows what you need. I always felt comfortable. she even went above and beyond to get me extra treatment that she thought be good for me or what I might need. I definitely recommend Dr. Chong if you or someone you know are seeking orthodontic treatment. She wont let you down.

Dr. Chong and her staff are SO knowledgeable and sweet!! Highly recommend the team, especially for those that want orthodontic treatment but want to be sure their bone/gum levels are preserved. I came via referral from my dentist (Dr. Jen Chiang – a fantastic dentist!) who knew I had pre-existing issues with bone loss/low gum levels (another orthodontist had put braces on my teeth before they were fully developed…this led to stunted roots and bone loss). Dr. Chong, who is the only dual certified periodontist and orthodontist in the area, monitored this during my orthodontic treatment (she does this for all patients) and made sure that any teeth moved during treatment did not cause too much impact to my bone levels. Dr. Chong truly cares about her patients and her office has state of the art equipment to ensure her patients get the best care. I also had insurance changes when I changed jobs and her office went above and beyond to work with my insurances and get my treatment covered. Thanks again Dr. Chong and team!

Dr Chong and her team are great. They listened patiently to my concerns and answered all my questions about my orthodontic treatment. When I decided to make changes during treatment, they happily accommodated my requests, even though it prolonged treatment. I’d come back here anytime. I was very happy with the results.

My son needed braces and after going to several different orthodontists we opted with getting treatment done with Dr. Chong.
