I wish I never took my children to her. Fortunately I was able to undo some of her damage by changing doctors.

As a former patient, both my brother and I went and saw Dr. Chui. I can tell you that that staff is wonderful. But my parents really felt that Dr. Chui took my parents on a run for their money. She is expensive and I was supposed to have my braces on and off in 2 years. 4 years later I was not ready for my senior portrait and my mother had to demand to speed up the process. So for 6 weeks my mouth was rubber banded shut, and I lost about 10 lbs, so I looked great for my portrait. My brother had his braces put on at 10 years old. My brother was ready to go into college and he STILL had his braces on. It was not reasonable by any means to keep a kid from Elementary, Junior High and All the way through high school, up to college to get braces off. My mother finally called it quits with Dr. Chuey and my brother had to go to a different Orthodontist. If your looking to blow a lot of time and money with a very nice staff, go for it. Just not practical for me.

I cannot recommend Dr Chui enough. She has significantly improved the shape of my daughter's face and mouth in a short period of time. It is nothing short of a miracle. The staff are friendly and work well with my 13 year old. The office is warm and welcoming. Getting in when something breaks is easy, making this convenient for both my daughter and I. I can't say enough about our experience and recommend Dr Chui to anyone needing orthodontia. Thank you!

Dr. Chui deserves much higher ratings that I see here! She approaches her diagnoses like a scientist, not surprising considering how many JPL/Caltech families she treats. After visiting several other othodontists who either dismissed my post-braces bite problem outright or couldn't get a handle on the cause, I was impressed at how thoroughly she analyzed the symptoms, their potential causes and their possible fixes. To her credit, she urged me to try the least expensive option first. Yes, her fees can be a bit high, and, yes, she is guilty of sometimes not revealing all fees upfront, but I've considered that to be a function of the fairly upscale neighborhood in which her practice is located. I'm glad to pay a bit more for her demonstrated superiority over the other orthodontists with whom I've consulted, and I recommend her highly.

I am totally surprised by the reviews I have read on this site. Maybe only people who are not happy take time to write reviews?!! I do not want to see people smear her name. It is so untrue!
Dr. Chui has treated my children and many of their friends. I can tell you that her results are superb and they last!!!
She was honest, caring and very thorough. She greatly improved my daughter's look and her jaws are now balanced. I am very grateful for what she had done for her. I can pick out her patients in a group. They just look better.
It is true that she ask her patients to work hard, but it yield the results you cannot get otherwise. I have witnessed so many talks she gives tirlessly to uncooperative patients. The kids are lucky that she cares about them.
I am glad that I can stand up for her and tell the truth, She is great.

I appreciated all the comments about Dr. Chui on this site. Many of the comments portrayed Dr. Chui accurately.
She is excessively expensive for the job she does. Her absorbent charge made me nausious. The initial evaluation is supposely free, but we ended up spending $425.00 for initial evaluation which almost all the orthodontists offer for free for the same information.
She nickels and dimes everything in addition to her bill.
She doesn't tell you all the expenses up front either.
Most of orthodontist will do the same job like she does for far less. She does nothing special to charge that much.

Dr. Chui is knowledgeable but thinks she has 100% control over a child's growth. She is very expensive and can not do magic with nature's faults. Most of her patients stay with braces for over 7 years, yet they do not end up with flawless teeth and jaws. She has to realize the limits of her abilities and inform the patient of that. Ridiculous head gears that we pay for and our kids have to suffer in, should be removed from her agenda. Her staff are great.

My children were treated by Dr. Chui, and I don't agree with any of the other reviews. I have known her for a while now after her treatment of my children. These other people say that she is "egotistical", "rude", "outdated", and "overly expensive". ALL OF THESE ARE NOT VALID!
Firstly, egotistical? Please, you people are NOT orthodontists so do not presume that you know what you are talking about. She may be quite forceful at times, but that is because she knows what is best for her patients. Also, to the parents that feel as if that she is rude with the children, it simply is not true. If you've been in the office, you know how many patients she is seeing. Cut the doctor a break. She is only stern with the children because she needs them to cooperate and do as she says so that the treatment will yield the best possible results. I know that my children didn't want to wear her rubber bands, but Dr. Chui forced her to and now the results are spectacular.
For the person who thinks Dr. Chui is outdated, she is in no way so. She goes to continued education classes and she does apply these new techniques. I am willing to bet the people who believe she is outdated was told that she did not want to use invisalign on his/her child. This is because invisalign is not as adaptable as normal braces, IT IS FOR THE WELL BEING OF THE PATIENT not to be outdated. Severe cases have to be treated with the strongest methods.
As for the pricing of her treatments, if you think she is expensive, it is because she provides the highest level of patient care possible. Don't bash the doctor just because you cannot afford it. Also, using her husband as a shield to say that she should lower her prices is ridiculous. Her husband is a general dentist.
Overall, I think this orthodontist is a great one and I highly recommend her. I would not listen to these other reviews as they do not offer any evidence of how she was faulted in any of the aforementioned ways. A fault that I have found with her office is that when it is really busy, there is some wait, but she will give you the attention you deserved once you're out of the waiting room.

I like this dentist. She and her staff are very professional. Her results can be found on thousands of kids who have grown-up in the community.
This orthodontist understands the meaning of appointments. She won't overbook and force patients to sit long after their appointed time.
I highly recommend this orthodontist.

Dr. Chui was rude with my children and excessively expensive. I'm sorry I signed a contract with her! I love her staff as they made her practice what it was but Dr. Chui unmade her practice.
