Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Susana S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had the best experience with Dr. Wong. He and his staff are friendly and kind and they never got upset with me for always running late. My treatment was a total of 3 years (the last year was due to COVID and not being able to see them for a handful of months), but they checked in every few weeks with updates on when they will reopen and what the experience would be like (i.e call them when you are in the parking lot and they’ll let you up, come by yourself, etc). I would 100% recommend to adults and kids alike.

My son has been seeing Dr. Derick for the past a few years and we really like him. The office staff is very professional and helpful. Dr. Derick is an experienced orthodontist. He is very nice and patient. My son had very successful treatment to correct his teeth alignment. We would highly recommend him.

We have had the best experience with Dr. Derick! Both my children have had orthodontic work done by him. They truly like him and his staff. One of my children is NOT FOND of any dental work, Dr. Derick has always been super patient with her and now they have a good working relationship. I highly recommend his office for any of your family’s orthodontic needs!

Catherine D. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m about half way through my treatment here and the service her has been great. Everyone always greets me with a smile and Dr. Wong takes the time to speak to me at every appointment.  My teeth are already much straighter than I expected them to be at this point and I’m excited to see the final result.  I visited several other Orthodontist before beginning my treatment here and I am happy to say I definitely made the right choice.  Great doctor, friendly staff, reasonable fee,and clean office, what more could you ask for!

Dr. Derick kindly and skillfully guided us on the journey of braces for my youngest daughter (and only child in our family to have them). He is personable and knowledgeable, and clearly explained all of our options. It was a pleasure working with him and the staff on this 2-year adventure, and we felt very informed and well taken care of all along the way. We are so grateful for and highly recommend Dr Derick and the staff at Mountain View Orthodontics!

Amy W. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wong and his staff are the best!  My son is usually seen at his other location, but we have visited the Alhambra office for his monthly visits on a several occasions.  Both offices are very accommodating and there service here is excellent.  My son feels very comfortable talking to Dr. Wong and enjoys coming to his visits.  I know that my son is receiving the best treatment possible, and I love the way his smile looks now.

Maria L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wong is an excellent Orthodontist… Him & his staff have done an excellent job on my son’s teeth. He takes good care of his patients and actually takes the time and goes over what has been done, what is needed, and what to expect on the next visit. They are very professional, fast, and have flexible hours for patients (parents) who work during the week and are unable to take the time off from work. Their prices are reasonable and if you are looking for an Orthodontist choosing him would be an excellent choice.. You won’t regret it!!

Wonderful family practice: the entire staff is warm, helpful, and caring, and you can tell they focus on providing the best experience possible, while ensuring the children are comfortable. I love that it’s also 1 stop for general teeth health, cleaning, and orthodontist check-ups. Highly recommend it!

Dr. Derick is super professional. He is not only very competitive in his professional area but also know how to communicate with patients and parents very efficiently and warmly. The office is very clean all around. The receptionists are superful helpful and thoughtful to arrange appointment to fit both doctor and patient’s schedule. Strongly recommend him.

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


Derek is great! Him and his staff are always friendly and happy. Every time I go, I come out feeling well taken care of. He does a great job explaining whats going on in my mouth and giving me the options of what to do about it. Even when Derek is not the one helping me, the other staff are just as knowledgeable and helpful with making my experience a smooth and relaxing visit!

Rosio R. from San Fernando, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


By far one of the best Orthodontist ever ! When it comes down to business, Dr. Wong will be straight forward about your treatment and he is the most easy going Doctor. I’m in love with my smile and super happy with Dr. Wong’s work. I highly recommend Dr. Wong for your orthodontic treatment, amazing work and amazing results!!!

Adela C. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This review is long overdue, but I just wanted to comment on how amazing Dr. Wong and all his staff was with me through my braces process. One thing that I loved about going to Dr. Wong for my braces was that he was so informative during every monthly visit as to what was happening during each step of the tightening process. I had my braces for 2 years, and he was able to have them off for me just in time for my graduation. I got my braces off May 2019. Before braces, I was always insecure about smiling, but now that I’ve gotten them off, that’s all I do! Lupe, Maria, and Gladys were always so sweet too. The day I got my braces off, they also gave me this goodie bag with all the snacks I couldn’t have while I had braces, which was super thoughtful! Thank you guys for my beautiful smile!!

Vidia C. from Walnut, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughter is currently getting her braces here. Before I decided to pick this orthodontist, I went and checked out a total of 6 places and I like Derek Wong the best. He was very patient during our first consultation, and was willing to spend time to answer all of our questions. He even showed us his “portfolio” of his past braces patients with before and after photos. His price is also very reasonable. When you are talking to him, you will get a sense that you are in good hands. If you are looking for a place to do braces for your kids or even for yourself, you should consider Derek Wong. At least go and do the first consultation and you will get what I’m talking about.

Natalie C. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


So far so good. I loved my consultation with Mr. Wong. He was thorough with my treatment plan. I just started my journey with Invisalign and after 4 consultations he was the orthodontist that I felt was the most educated, skilled, and polite dentist. I feel confident and safe spending my hard earned money to make my smile even more beautiful, Thank You.

Vivien S. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have to give a 5 stars review!!! Dr Wong is very thorough in his assessment of my daughters condition!   He took a X-ray and explained everything professionally!! Other orthodontists I went just looked at my daughter teeth with their bare eyes!!! Or show me pictures of other kids issues!! Which makes no sense!! I went to four different orthodontists and he is the only person told me my daughter need a head gear and brace to correct her underbite!!! Because her jaw bone is still growing that would avoid future jaw surgery!!! Just brace is not enough!! He is very practical and really get into the problem! I will definitely choose him as my daughter orthodontic journey!! He is also a few orthodontist take HMO insurance which is a plus!! His staff is also very helpful!! My 7 year old also likes them even thought she knows she needs to wear a head gear!!!

Jerry S. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this office. Dr. Wong is informative, friendly, and considerate. Whenever I had questions he provided answers with no problem. The ladies that work here are amazing. Anytime I had to reschedule an appointment the ladies were able and willing to accommodate. There were a few instances when I was about five or ten minutes late for my appointment, but I called to inform them. The office is very clean and the wait times for each appointment were very short. Dr. Wong and everyone that works at this office are there to help you. Whether it is a concern that you have about your teeth or the financial aspect of paying for orthodontic work. ASK QUESTIONS. I had braces on for a little over 2 years, but the length of time to have braces on will be different for everyone. I really enjoyed my experience at this office.

Stephanie R. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


I finally got my braces removed and I got to say it Wong Orthodontist really out done themselves. The whole journey was pleasant and he was always gave me a heads-up on what to expect. His whole staff was really sweet and welcoming and I’m very happy I choose them as my orthodontist.

Frances S. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


We only did a consultation with Dr. Wong but I was immediately impressed. They had excellent Covid19 safety protocols in place…you had to call when in the parking lot before coming up, the pen that you used is for yours to keep, hand sanitizer and gargle before getting checked, masks on for everyone. But the feedback and information that Dr. Wong gave us was useful and informative. We learned so much from him despite 3 other consultations. He gave 3 extraction recommendations that we took to the dentist and we are to return in 3 months to see if my son is in need of braces. Unlike other orthodontists, there was no pressure to sell and make $. When my son (and all my other kids) are ready for braces, we definitely going to see Dr. Wong.

Dr. Derick is a great orthodontist In terms of judgement, skill and interpersonal dealings with patients. He is great with kids. He successfully treated my teenage daughter who had a small jaw with crowded impacted teeth. You wouldn’t even suspect that this was the case if you saw her now. All of the latest treatment options are available and he offers reasonable and affordable payment plans. In addition the office staff and dental hygienists are also wonderful and deserving of a 5-star rating as well.

Gabbie M. from CA, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wong and his wonderful team make the experience of getting braces a breeze!!! If possible, would rate a 10+++!! From your first to the very last visit, you are fully informed of your treatment and what to expect. You never leave not understanding what your visit entailed. I felt very comfortable asking any question I had which speaks volumes about the level of professionalism you can expect! As a client, you are highly regarded and treated with kindness which attests to the overall nature of Dr. Wong and his awesome team. The office is always readily welcoming, clean, and has employed the necessary COVID precautions. Highly recommend Dr. Wong and team!!!

David A. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wong and his staff are the best. I’ve been coming here for over a year and the service is great. I never have to wait long to be seen and everyone is very friendly and professional. Dr. Wong always informs me of my progress and makes sure everything is okay with my teeth before I leave. Best of all, I finally have a smile that I am happy to show my friends and family. I recommended Dr. Wong to my friend and he loves his teeth now too. 5 stars!

Helen Wolter (Source: Google)


Dr. Derek and his team are wonderful to work with – Dr. Derek explains things clearly to both my son and me, worked to make my nervous child comfortable, and is quite conscientious about my kid’s teeth. My kid is now reasonably relaxed having Dr. Derek work on his teeth and his teeth are better due to Dr. Derek. I fully recommend Dr. Derek and his team. (His team is also fabulous and easy to work with on scheduling and cleaning a nervous child’s teeth. )

My children have the privilege to know of Dr. Derick Wang practice through his affiliate Dr. Sarita’s General Dentistry. Dr. Derick Wang did awesome works on their orthodontic evaluation and correction of their teeth through invisalign and orthodontia treatment. My teenager would not have such beautiful smile today without great work and vision for the end results. We appreciate to enjoy such great service from his staff and his professional orthodontic practice. I would recommend his practice to friends and colleagues who are looking to improve their first impression with a beautiful smiles that is PRICELESS.

Both my children were treated by Dr. Derick Wang for Orthodontics. He is very knowledgeable, maintains a calm demeanor and knows how to work with children of all ages. His thoroughness to ensure excellent results are most appreciated. Both my children felt good through the treatment and now have beautiful smiles!

Nancy L. from South Gate, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you Dr. Wong and staff (Linda, Gladys, Kristie, Lupe) for making this experience so pleasant for my daughter, and me too!  My daughter’s teeth came out beautiful and she now smiles with confidence. 🙂 I highly recommend Wong Orthodontics for their amazing work, flexible and accommodating appointments, and most of all their friendly and professional staff!

Sonia C. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wong removed our daughter’s braces today and her teeth looked impressive compared to three years ago. She started her braces with Dr. Lim but after 2 1/2 years, I was concerned that there was still a gap on her lower right molars. When Dr. Wong started helping her with her braces, it took only a few months this year to get all the teeth straightened out. We’re very happy with how it looks and how incredible the staff has been to our family with their service. They gave us an emergency appointment when my daughter needed it and also rescheduled appointments without any problems (even via email–no hassle phone calls!) so we’re really grateful to Dr. Wong and his staff!

J W. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son is usually fearful of the dentist, but he actually enjoys coming to his orthodontic appointments. Dr. Wong has a very calming personality and speaking to my son in a way that is very comforting.  We never feel rushed when we come for our visits and Dr. Wong always explains all of the procedures before he begins his work.  I appreciate all of the time he spends with my son and I each visit and I can honestly say this has been a wonderful experience.  The office is very accommodating and they are able to schedule around my son’s busy school schedule.  As a parent, I feel that it is important to have nothing but the best for my children and I know that this is definitely the case here.

Johnny H. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was on a metal braces treatment plan for a little over two years, but Dr. Wong and his staff made it a really smooth journey! From our first consultation, Dr. Wong had been very patient, empathetic, and informative every step of the way. Treating an adult with an underbite/cross-bite comes with a some risks. I especially appreciate his honesty and clarity when he went over the outcomes of each possible treatment with me. Thankfully, we were able to go with the least invasive, yet successful plan. Now equipped with plastic retainers, I have never been more comfortable with my smile! Each visit was very efficient. Throughout this entire time, Dr. Wong’s staff has been nothing but cordial, and courteous. Each appointment was easy to set up; they also send reminders a few days before each one. Their diligence to having a safe environment really shows through all their extra precautions in response to this pandemic (e.g. limiting the number of people in the room, adding extra partitions, temperature checks, and symptom surveys). I highly recommend Wong Orthodontics for your braces needs!

C T. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Dr. Wong to correct my bottom teeth which were shifting. I had never had braces before. Everyone on his team is super nice, efficient, and easy to work with. Every appointment I was in and out. I highly recommend Dr. Wong I will be sending my kids here as well and have already referred him to other friends and family!

T C. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


After 3 consultations, I’m confident that I found the best orthodontist for my daughter in the 626 area. Dr Derek Wong is knowledgeable and made the process very easy. During the consultation they took free digital x-rays and identified all the problem areas. They also made sure to always involve my daughter and made her comfortable. In comparison to the other 2 consultations we got, office #1 which is a highly rated office in Pasadena, recommended to install an expander device on her uppers for 10 months (also $1,200 more expensive) and office #2 recommended my daughter to wear a face-brace at night. Dr. Wong didn’t recommend any of these extra devices. He said that my daughter’s crowding and over-jet were not severe enough and adding spacers with traditional braces will do. After just a month, I’m satisfied to see her teeth aligning nicely. I’m glad to find a doctor that will use the best and most reasonable method for the correction. The end result is all the same but it’s important that the Doctor has his/her patients’ best interest and not have them go through unnecessary steps for the correction. The staff were all attentive and friendly. And the office is also nice. My daughter is looking forward to come back and play with the arcade machine that is in the waiting area.

I never thought I would be happy about getting braces, as an adult patient, I was really nervous about the process. I am relieved my coworker referred me. During the (free) consultation, I received information about the ortho options and it was easy to understand. Dr. Wong was clear and honest about his recommendations for my case, and I appreciated that he was direct and also took the time to address any issues I had. I am 13 months into my treatment, and I am really happy with the results so far. Financially, I think the practice provides flexible options for payment. My regular visits are easy and I actually look forward to them. I think I must have really thought braces would be a nightmare (I’ve heard bad stories), but it’s actually been the opposite. Maria, Lupe and Gladys are amazing! They make each visit feel comfortable and easy. They are very organized and provide great service. I’m looking forward to bringing my kids when they’re ready – I know they will be in great hands! Can’t say enough good things!

Lionel G. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


To be honest, at first I was quote on quote ‘ortho-shopping’ and I was skeptical about which orthodontist to choose but I’m glad that I made the decision of continuing my journey of getting straight teeth with Dr.Wong. All his staff are super friendly, great smiles at first impression, and accommodate with your needs. If you were to have any concerns you can always rely on him and his staff to explain everything to you with detail. So far, I’m on my second month of having braces and I already see significant improvement ! I will continue on adding more updates in the future as my journey of getting that perfect smile continues !

Reyna C. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Yesterday was our last appointment and let me tell u I wasn’t ready to say goodbye . Dr. Wong , Lupe, Maria, and Gladys are the best! So professional and friendly. They always made me feel welcomed and any time I had to reschedule it was so easy. Dr. Wong is amazing! These past few years flew by and and I’m so happy with the outcome of my daughters teeth. From the beginning till the end he and his staff explained everything and made sure I understood and most importantly made my daughter feel comfortable. I totally would recommend him to my friends and family . Thank you for everything and most important thank you for giving my daughter that beautiful smile

Jennifer L. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wong is the best orthodontist around! My youngest needed braces to correct a cross bite. I was very nervous as she was seven years old at the time she began her treatment. The entire process, which was around two years long, was easier than I imagined it would be. Dr. Wong is very gentle, a concern for me with a young child, and as nice as can be. You will get reminder emails/calls for your appointments and if you happen to miss one (whoops!) rescheduling is easy. It’s never a long wait to be seen and the appointments are quick and as painless as possible. I highly recommend Dr. Wong for your orthodontic needs, particularly if you have a child on the younger side.

Kiki W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Wong and his office have been very nice and professional in providing the treatments for my children. No hassle with our insurance, no waiting, plenty of parking in the structure. He is always available to answer your questions of concerns. Best opens on Saturdays and it’s busy but not overcrowded as many orthodontic offices. I always recommended him to all my friends! 🙂 07/11/2020 Our family is very pleased with the service and kind attention of the staff and Dr Wong. As a mother working in the medical field, our family understands and takes covid19 precautions seriously. The implemented system to check-in and questionaries, checking temperatures are great example on how to take care of your patients and community. Keep up the great job! Mom of Benjamin 🙂
