this office is just basically out ot get money from medicaid/child health plus/ or any gov't insurance programs for children because the office is always crowded, with parents and kids standing during high peak hours...I usally make appts for saturday or sunday and at the earliest time (i.e. 9:30-10:00) but always ending up waiting 45 mins to an hour for Dr. Lai to come....the staff just cares about getting money out of you and nothing else because when you check out, they will never forget to ask you for the money, and if you don't have cash, then they would pressure you to charge it on your card...

even though the practice is under Dr. Lai's name, he has about 7-8 full/part-time orthodontists working for him so you will have 7-8 different people working on your teeth....everytime i go there, there is always a different person looking at my teeth and looking confused at what was done previously...the only thing Dr. lai does is go to your chair as you are lying down, poke at your teeth for five seconds, barks orders to the hovering orthodontist and then on to the next patient...and they never explain what they do to you (not the procedure or at what point of the orthodontic experience).

should you ask a question or is concerned about the progress of your children's teeth, you will get ATTITUDE from Dr. Lai and he always blames slow progress on you, never his work.... is this the type of doctor you want to work your or your children's teeth??

i know that the business aspect of healthcare is very important and maintaining an orthodontic pracitce is very costly and tiring...but this office needs to cut down the number of patients they accept and improve the quality of service they are providing...and not just upping the smiles and thank yous..

also, he plays favorites with patients...if you are affluent and pay out of pocket, he is definitely more cheerful and talkative

This is my daughter's orthodontist. I usually make appointments for 9:30 am Saturday morning because at any other time the place is like a mad house. They do have many chairs, and they do seem to go through all of the patients very expeditiously. Most importantly, they seem to know what they're doing! I've heard similar stories about other orthodontists, so I suspect that the atmosphere in this office is very similar to other othodontists.

i currently am getting my braces done at this dentist. there are lots of people here. so be prepared for your appointment to be a little late. but the wait is not bad. there are lots of other dentists working there too, so it is a very busy office. he's very friendly and so too are the other people working there. they always play movies for the people that are waiting for their appointment. the office is really beautiful. there are very big paintings in the room where the dentist work is done.
