“I truly believe my patients are the reason I’m here. That’s why my patients always come first in my practice. I will do my utmost to deliver orthodontic care that’s second to none. I always ask the question ‘what is the greatest performance from patient’s perspective?’ and deliver what was promised. I will personally see to it that you are wowed by your experience and the result is far better than what you expected.” — Dr. Christopher Chung
