I got my braces off a year and a half ago and I am so pleased with the results. I received many compliments on my new straight teeth and I owe it all to Dr. Jimmy and his staff. I was fortunate to find this place because Dr. Jimmy and his staff are amazing! I had my treatment done at his old office which was nice but I  stopped by today for a retainer check-up (without an appointment!) at his new office and it is exquisite! I was so surprised when I walked in because the place didn’t seem to be spacious and luxurious from the outside. His office is beautiful! If you want to be provided with both professional and affordable care then Dr.Jimmy is the one! You won’t be disappointed. Dr. Jimmy cares and you won’t be left stranded after your treatment because he will make sure that your teeth stay amazing!

Doctor Jimmy Vu is an amazing dentist and the staff here is so nice and cheerful. I’ve been with them for more than 2 years and they always receive me with a smile and amazing work. When I first came here my teeth were terrible, now my teeth are incredible. I would highly suggest coming here, they are absolutely the best.

Kim N. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


ive been to other orthodontics before but Dr. jimmy vu ortho is definitely the best. All of the dentists are super friendly and they enjoy talking to you. The receptionists are nice and organized when it comes to sorting your information. They’re also super quick at what they do since im only sitting in the chair for 5-10 min and already out so they really know what they’re doing. I like the atmosphere here as well ( they have an aquarium).

Cindy P. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Currently in the process of braces. The staff are very, VERY kind and funny (Joe is super amazing and Rose). They can interact with you and it’s nice. The receptionist are super kind aswell, (Candy/Candie is super kind and hardworking). This place cares about if your comfortable with your braces and want to make your experience great. I’d totally recommend you to go here because they help people with all different kinds of cases (underbite,overbite,etc.). It doesn’t take forever to wait to get called in and it’s very spacious. I really recommend if you’re looking to get braces you come to this place and get them done!

T D. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was happy with the treatment and service that Dr. Jimmy Ngo and his staff provided to me during the last four year. I was done the treatment and so happy with the result. I highly recommend Dr. Jimmy Ngo for anyone who is in need of bracing treatment for a nice smile. Dang, T

I ended up getting braces here right after my consultation a little over 2.5 years ago and I don’t regret a thing because TODAY I FINALLY GET TO TAKE THEM OFF! -STAFF- Dr. Ngo and his staff are very knowledgeable and always seem sure of what they’re doing. Co Phuong (aka Candy) who works at the front desk is the sweetest person ever. Everyone here works quickly and efficiently and is always willing to answer any questions. -LOCATION- The office is located in the corner of this little plaza (where Sen Cafe is if you’re heading eastbound down Westminster). The lot is small and tight since it’s shared among all of the other shops here. There are a couple spots designated specifically for the orthodontist office but it fills up. There were times when I had to park in the adjacent neighborhoods and walk to the office. -APPOINTMENTS- Making the monthly appointments has always been very easy. The office is only open on Wednesdays and Saturdays (Saturdays are busier, especially between 10am-12pm). They close from 1-2pm for lunch. I’ve waited as little as 5 minutes to as long as 1.5 hours, but this only happened once in the 2.5 years that I’ve gone here. I would recommend coming here because I love that they’re open on Saturdays and the staff is really friendly. Now my teeth are super straight all thanks to Dr. Ngo and his team 🙂

Yay! Braces are off and I can review my full experience. I got my braces on in March 2017 and off in May 2019. I’ve been wanting to correct my teeth in my early twenties and have had on a couple of consultations. I finally got braces in my late 30s and LOVE the outcome. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. I came in for a free consultation where the whole process was explained to me clearly. I’ll be honest, having adult braces wasn’t fun. However, Dr. Ngo and his staff made the process much easier. Ana and George were my go-to ortho tech. They were always gentle and made me feel comfortable. I have heard horror stories of Orthodontists pulling out multiple teeth when it’s unnecessary or shaving your teeth so much that it’s permanently sensitive. I made sure I voiced these concerns to Dr. Ngo and he was very kind and accommodating about the issue. I will embarrassing admit that I’m a very picky person (why else do you think I want straight teeth) and asked a lot of questions during the process (2 years! of questions). He patiently explained and educated every time I was there, which put me at ease. A few more things to mention, the front desk staff, Vanessa and Candy are VERY accommodating and nice. They always took me in last minute for emergencies and I had several of them. Due to my molar crowns, the brackets broke off a few times and getting it replace was very easy. Overall, Dr. Ngo is amazing! Now my teeth are perfectly straight and have a killer smile! I will make sure I keep it that way with my retainers.

Third time is a charm they say . I’ve been Dr. Jimmy’s patient, since he was at his original location. You know growing up you never wear your retainers, so now into adulthood I have to make up for that. This third time around, I will definitely wear my retainers after removing my braces today! Let’s get to Dr. Jimmy, he is so caring and does not rush. Even though it seems like he’s always moving around to check other patients, he makes sure your progress is going the correct way and you are happy with it. Front desk, Co phuong or aka Candy, she is extremely helpful and will try her best to schedule the time you want. Overall, everyone in this office is nice. If you don’t like something, speak up!.

Norman L. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Dr Ngo for my orthodontics for many years.  His office is only minutes away and is super convenient for me.  Recently, I went for a visit to replace my retainers.  Dr. Ngo, Candy, and staff are amazing as always.  My fitting was last week, got my new retainers today, Dr. Ngo made some adjustments and fits nicely.  Kudos!!  Keep smiling my friends ;))

John D. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


All three of my children went to jimmy Vo Ngo . He is a great orthodontist and his team is very nice and knowledgeable. Open on saturdays is a plus as I work all week. My daughter just finished her treatment and she I so impressed with the results. I highly recommend him if you need Ortho work.

Tiffany T. from Stanton, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to this dental care for the past two years and have had a great experience. Dr. Ngo and his staff members are friendly and treat their patients with care. I am happy with my results from wearing the braces for the past two years. Even after you’re done with the treatment, Dr. Ngo still wants you back for your retainer check up in two months. They also accept medical so try applying for it. Sadly, my medical health insurance only cover 1/3 of the treatment plan since I turned 21 in a few months after medical accepted my treatment plan. nevertheless, the price is cheap compared to other places. Word of advice: try to go on a Wednesday right before they open so you don’t need to wait that long.

Gillian N. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Dr. Ngo’s office with 2 canines on both sides and hoping to get my teeth straight out within 1.5 years. Before Dr. Ngo, I went to 6-7 other orthodontists for consultation and all of them recommended extraction on 4 teeth and braces on for at least 2.5 years. So as I came to see Dr. Ngo, I understand I also brought him quite a challenge with my request. After a 15 minutes consultation, Dr. Ngo understand I would not want any extraction so he recommended IPR (Inter-proximal Reduction). I accepted the recommendation and had the braces on on the same day. After 1.5 years later, I not only have a new smile but also a new life. Wearing braces under the care of one of the most experienced orthodontists on Orange County is the greatest thing any person could ask for. I am glad I made the right decision to have Mr. Ngo and his friendly staff to take care of my smile. The process might be challenging, but the result is worthwhile. Thank you!

Tien T. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love Dr. Jimmy. I actually had braces about 10 years ago. Unfortunately, like a lot of teenagers, I did not wear my retainers and am having to go through the process again. The second time around as an adult is definitely more painful than I remember, but I am definitely taking care of them much more than when I was younger. I hesitated coming back, only because I was embarrassed about doing it a second time. Turns out though that this is a pretty common thing. I looked left and right, went to many other orthos for consulations, but found my way back to Dr. Jimmy and am glad that I did. Dr. Jimmy takes his time during the consultation and makes recommendations that will meet your best interest. I wanted invisalign very badly, and he convinced me to do the traditional braces, as it would better align my teeth. The other places I went to all convinced me to just do invisalign, which would have cost me about 4k. Dr. Jimmy had told me that I could go that route, however, if after the 10 trays, my teeth still aren’t straight, I would have to pay for another round of trays. I really respect Dr. Jimmy and his opinion and I’m glad that I am back. The new plaza he’s in has better parking and the front office staff is always sweet and welcoming. I love Co Phuong and it is nice to see her again after so many years. I’ve since recommended all of my family members and friends to trust Dr. Jimmy with their teeth.

Eric N. from Midway City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hadn’t been back in a few years after getting my braces, but recently my retainers broke and I needed to replace them ASAP. I called this morning and spoke with the receptionist/office manager and she told me to just swing by around 11AM. I didn’t have to make an appointment so I got there and ended up only waiting 20 minutes or so before they called me in. The doctor checked my chart and noticed that I hadn’t been around for a few years and welcomed me back. He was super friendly and address the issue of replacing my retainers quickly. I told him I was going on vacation and he planned for my retainer pick up/visit accordingly. As usual, he was very helpful and professional, as were the rest of the staff working at the office. The new office (he used to be at a different location back when I had braces) was very clean and well furnished. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ngo to new customers.

Hoisum N. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jimmy Vu Ngo is great! I’ve known him since I was a kid (I was 15 at the time), and my, now, straight teeth are great! I recently broke my retainers, however, and came back to him after five years! He replaced my retainers ASAP, and even gave me a discount just ’cause I remembered him? Haha! Awesome! The staff is nice too! Yay, for straight teeth! No regrets at all!

Tiffany M. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just had my braces removed and my teeth are nice and straight. Dr. Jimmy Ngo and his staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. His prices are reasonable and he will work with you to accommodate your budget. I received several quotes, and Dr Jimmy offered me the most reasonable price. I referred my coworker to Dr Jimmy and she is also very pleased with his work. She said that her last orthodontist was not as thorough . She, like me, had to wear braces twice because our last ortho did not emphasize the importance of wearing retainers. Another mistake I made in choosing an orthodontist the first time was that the first orthodontist was not a board certified orthodontist like Dr Jimmy is. I wasn’t aware that a general dentist can perform orthodontic work without being board certified. Not only is Dr Jimmy board certified in orthodonistry, he went to a competitive, prestigious dental school (UCLA) and he did his fellowship at NYU. What more can you ask for in an orthodontist? Trust your teeth with Dr Jimmy Ngo and his staff!!!

Jen N. from Henderson, NV (Source: Yelp)


definitely suggest this place for people looking into braces. They saved me about $1500 from what i had previously quoted by other orthodontists. you really need to shop around for an orthodontist, and I am so glad a friend recommended this place to me He only works on Wednesday and Saturdays, saturdays being the worse and Wednesday after 3 being busy as well. But if you can do it, make your appointment Wednesday before 3. they have flat screens in every room, play movies, lets you brush your teeth and gives you complimentary toothbrushes. the staff is friendly and Dr. Ngo is also nice and attentive. Not sure if he does invisalign, but they do have clear brackets for people like me, who avoided braces in her youth…

Howard D. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Even though I had to wear the braces just a bit longer than expected, but in the end, I am very satisfied with the result. Dr. Ngo does his job with passion and cares about his patients. The receptionist is always welcoming and treating me nicely. The staffs are very professional and I never had any issues. The prices are fair and reasonable. Highly recommended!

Sandii O. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I always wanted to get my braces but I wanted to find a good place that would be worth going to and that could also be affordable since I’m a student and only work part time to do the payments on my own. I was recommended to this place by an ex coworker and I don’t regret at all going there because they left my teeth perfect I could not have gone to a better place. My teeth were seriously bad . I thought I would never have a pretty smile and now that I have my braces off I feel pleased becauSe I can smile with confidence like I always wanted too .

Ling T. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would highly recommend Dr jimmy! So this is the one of the rare time that I ever write a review by dr. Jimmy and all the staff here have been so helpful and amazingly professional and friendly throughout my time having my braces. He has every services for the best and advanced tools for you to feel pretty while having your braces. So I had a clear braces which lasted me for about 2 years but he was able to take it off soon for me and I am just so happy with the result that I almost cried afterwards!! Throughout the time he was so helpful and flexible with my schedule as I traveled throughout the time I had. I knew someone even came from Las Vegas just to get his services. Affordable price with monthly payment, retainer, and excellent care and service. I am telling all my friends to come thank you so much for your help! I love my smile now

Bich N. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have chosen this office since Dr Jimmy Vu was the only one -out of 4 orthodentists- who assured me that I only need to remove one tooth to fix my crooked dental problem. I love this place. Not only the office is clean, the staff is friendly  but most of all, Dr Jimmy Vu is professional and skillful in his profession. I have trust in his care. He had changed the look of my face.My double chin disappeared so the look from my side way and my front were perfect. I had finished the procedure after 1 yr . I strongly recommended his work to anyone. Price is right. Time is right. And I look more beautiful. What else can I ask?

Nadia S. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here for 3 years..The staff members are very sweet and well experienced as well as Dr. Ngo. Front desk staff always have a great attitude. They send appointment reminders a few days before your appointment just incase if you have forgotten. They had made my smile the way how i always wanted it!

Alejandra G. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was skeptical about getting braces again as an adult and luckily my job offers an awesome insurance for dental….so of course I said ok why not I’ll give braces a try one more time. After talking to several of my friends that live in OC they recommended Dr. Ngo, I went in for consultation and was sold immediately his front staff was the friendliest and he was very professional and informative about what he can do for me. And I was able to get a whitening after braces which was a total plus!!!! He was so great now I have recommended him to friends and family. My Fiance had braces with him and now my niece. I’m super happy with the results!!!!!!!

Roger P. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


These people have it down! The environment is friendly, the flow is efficient, and each person takes their job seriously while having fun and making patients feel like they are the only person on earth at this moment. They do a great job orienting you to the process, asking for your questions, walking you through what is happening right now and what to expect, and ensuring that you are fully comfortable before proceeding. Dr. Jimmy’s office and staff is exceptional. Great use of technology and relationships. Very warm and friendly, inviting and above all full of smiles!

Nathan G. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to this place for my braces most of my time since the service was quite fast and excellent. Other ortho places were too slow (took me 40 min to get a tune up). It only took me around 15 min just to get a tune up on my braces. The staff is friendly and sometimes converses with me if they are awaiting tools or something. The atmosphere is nice and the lobby is very comfortable. There’s a television facing each seat so I can watch and await my turn. I’ve been going there for 5 years and I’ve waited no longer than 15 min. If I get a wire poking my cheek, I always tell them and they adjust accordingly well and fast. Excellent service!

Sana A. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I got braces from Dr. Ngo back in 2008 and I still come back from time to time for a retainer check up. Everyone’s super nice here! I highly recommend this office. It’s best to come early in the morning as there’s less of a rush and more parking. Even if I come in the afternoon, I still experience short wait times

Sharon P. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Curious about this doctor? (+) Dr. Ngo is a NYU and UCLA grad. (+) Being his patient for a year now, I can tell you that he is skilled in his craft and most importantly appreciates and respects aesthetics. He does DETAIL WORK! Most orthodontists focus on the ‘straightening and alignment’ and leave out the detail work. (+) What I like most about him is he is open to discussing your concerns and develops a plan that works for you! (+) The office is fast-pace; however, remember that Dr. Ngo overlooks every-single-patient and HE is the only one that makes the decisions on how to advance and progress your needs. (+) Candy/Candie the office manager is very knowledgeable and the entire staff is very helpful and accommodating. (+) After removal of my braces, they provided me with a clear plastic/Essix-type retainer! WHY I’M REVIEWING DR. NGO: I was referred to Dr. Ngo by a friend. There was little information about him online; however, my friend’s experience was wonderful and I bet on that. I want to share this information to all of you out there who are looking for an orthodontist. I live in south orange county and drive up here with happiness knowing that I’m in good hands.

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


Just came back from my consultation! This will be my second time getting braces (completely my fault for not wearing my retainers the first time) I haven’t seen Dr. Ngo in over 9 years and it was so nice to know that he has not changed one bit! He was extremely welcoming. He also had such a big smile on his face, despite how busy the office was this morning. He gave me a thorough explanation of what I needed and the approximate duration of my treatment. He was so honest with me compared to other offices where I received consultations. I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking for an awesome orthodontist as well as affordable braces. I am really happy with the service I received today from not only Dr. Ngo, but also his staff!

Vanty S. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr NGO and Candie are really nice people. Me and my siblings come here for braces… plus I just got my retainers replaced today with a great discount! I had gotten braces along time ago at a cheap family owned orthodontist and the results were horrible! Couple years later I’ve found out about yelp and that’s how I found Dr NGOs office!!! I wish I could go back in time to save my money and time to come to Dr Ngo. But I guess I got what I payed for.. Lesson learned!

Joanne L. from Fountain Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to a few orthodontics for a consultation before deciding to go with Dr. Ngo.  He was pleasant, genuine, had reasonable price, staff was nice, clean office, what more can I ask for.  So glad I went there, after a little over 2 years, I finally got my braces off!! Can’t thank Dr NGO and his staff enough, I love the result. If you’re looking for competitive pricing, beautiful smile and professional, kind staff…this is the place.  The only downfalls are their days of operation (only Weds & Sats) and wait time. Other than that, you should definitely go for a consult.

Delphine B. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Dr. Ngo 6 years ago for a consultation about getting braces. After reviewing various orthodontist quotes and services and receiving a strong recommendation from a family friend, I decided to come here. Not only is Dr. Ngo friendly and qualified, his staff always offered a warm welcome when I came in for check-ups. Two years later my braces came off and I was more than satisfied with the result. Following the treatment, I have continued to take good care of my teeth and still wear my retainer on occasion to keep them as straight as possible. People compliment me all the time on my teeth and I owe it to Dr. Ngo! I went in for a check-up just a couple weeks ago to make sure my teeth were still doing well and to see if I could get my retainer tightened. Dr. Ngo recognized me and was as kind as ever, offering the check-up and retainer adjustment for free. I also got to see the new office which looks great! I highly recommend Dr. Ngo. He also went to UCLA – Go Bruins!

Derick N. from Fremont, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I had an old orthodontist who screwed around with my teeth and basically in the end he gave me an overbite and said I had to remove two teeth in order to correct it. Of course, I knew removing teeth is a normal part of the process however I was quite wary to get an extraction since obviously teeth never grow back. I went to get a second opinion and he also recommended that I remove my teeth as well and therefore i was going to go through with the extractions. However, along comes Dr. Ngo whom I go to as a VERY last opinion since i cannot emphasize how much i don’t want to remove my teeth. He looks at my teeth and straight away says that dental extractions are NOT the best method for me. He even showed me pictures of my xrays and gave me the logic behind WHY teeth extractions were NOT for me and they made so much sense. I’m not just saying this because I didn’t want extractions. Had I proceeded with extractions my entire facial profile would have been ruined and additionally the gaps would not have been able to close since my overbite was not severe enough, and the only way to close THAT gap was to remove two teeth from my lower jaw. So anyway I did my braces with Dr. Ngo and he gave me a VERY good deal. I would have had to pay SO MUCH more for my old orthodontist. The staff was super friendly and he definitely did what was best for my teeth, and fast forward about a year and a half later i got them off and i could not have been happier with the result! Trust me when i say that you cannot go wrong with Dr. Ngo. I honestly cannot stop smiling, and if you go with Dr. Ngo, you won’t be able to either. If you read this Dr. Ngo, thank you so so so much for saving my teeth and really caring for me. If I could I’d give you one million stars!

Kelley N. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I got my braces 2.7 Years ago at Jimmy Ngo’s office. One of the BEST orthodontists in the city. Doctor Jimmy is a perfectionist. He was very specific on my teeth. The workers there were very friendly! And if anytime you don’t feel comfort with you braces an the way it feels, speak up about it to the workers and they will help you find a way to get it to work. The parking at the office is very hard to find. I suggest for you to park in the neighborhoods near by but rather than that fact, Doctor Jimmy is amazing and so are my teeth 

Arlene S. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here since I was 14 to get my braces done, I’m now 21 and STILL coming here for check ups and to get new retainers (when I unfortunately lose mine). Dr. Ngo is the absolute best out there and has always treated me the very best along with his many other patients. I always walk out satisfied with no complaints!

Emily D. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) I absolutely LOVE Dr.Ngo’s work on my teeth! The price is very reasonable compared to other places. There is also a very comfortable feeling when you walk in. People need to understand that braces are a long and (during my treatment) painful process. The wait is long, but I truly DO understand why. He’s got a team, but is still a one-man show and a very high-in-demand doctor. I know he likes to personally watch the progress of each and every patient! The staff is amazing and so are the ladies in the front 🙂 My smile has never been more beautiful and I have Dr. Ngo to thank for it, so THANK YOU DR. JIMMY VU NGO!!
