    I had been searching and comparing prices of Invisalign and this place is not only very nice with excellent service and quality board certified orthodontists, but it’s at a very competitive price point. I am so excited for this process and it’s good to know that I will be well taken care of.

    If you’re looking for a gentle, patient-oriented, and super accommodating orthodontist, then Sons and Daughters is the right choice for your sons and daughters (get it?) or even for yourself. Also, I heard that Dr. Sam Lee is one of the best providers of Invisaline, so if that’s what you’re looking for, he’s your man! Actually, based on my experience, no matter what my kids’ orthodontic needs will be, Dr. Lee is now my first choice in all SoCal.

    I followed Dr. Nguyen from her previous office. She is very knowledgeable and approachable. I had braces when I was a teenager, but never wore my retainers. So here I am as an adult getting braces again when my bite started to bother me and grind my teeth down. I opted for invisalign this time as I am a 30+ professional and didn’t want metal on my teeth again. Dr. Nguyen has been so wonderful through this process! I highly recommend this office!

Best of all, since building a perfect smile takes time and precision, I really get to know my patients and they really get to know me.  Developing long-term relationships is the greatest perk of my job.  I treat each patient, no matter their age, as I would a member of my own family: with compassion, tender care, and as conservatively as possible.

Wynter

Director of Smiles

I have had the pleasure of directing smile transformations for more than 18 years. I’ve worked in every role of an Orthodontics office and I’m still eager to learn about new techniques or products to improve the process. I love the excitement that surrounds the journey of Orthodontics, the anticipation in the beginning, the dedication it takes during the monthly treatment visits and the reward at the end when another Son or Daughter reveals a beaming smile to their mom and dad! Being a part of Sons and Daughters is my most rewarding journey yet. My role is to educate my patients on everything from understanding how braces work and how to care for them…..to maximizing insurance benefits to keep their cost down. I know this is a big decision for you and your family, so I am here to guide you through every step! If I am not at work you can find me cheering for my daughter at her softball games or curling my toes in the sand soaking up the California sunshine. My family is my source of joy and the roots behind my dedication to excellence. Our name says it all!We are all Sons and Daughters and are all blessed by the smiles that surround us everyday at work, school and home!“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Evalyn

Smile Lab Director

I’ve been in the world of dentistry for 16 years. The first 5 years were spent in general dentistry working alongside general dentists, assisting with procedures such as cleanings, root canals, fillings, etc. I also gave other specialties a whirl and found my true joy and passion once I worked in orthodontics. This is where I’ve been the last 11 1/2 years, helping to create amazing smiles and seeing people’s self esteem improve. It makes me thrilled to be a part of their journey and see their incredible transformation and to see their true personality shine. What I enjoy most about working in the field of orthodontics is getting to know each patient individually and working with them step by step to achieve a beautiful new smile.

Away from the office I enjoy spending time with my love Johnny, my adorable infant son, family and friends. I also enjoy hiking, cheering on the boys in blue (Go Dodgers!), traveling and checking out the best breakfast/brunch, spot as savory and sweet dishes are my jam!

Lori

Smile Lab Expert

I have worked in the orthodontic field for 10 years! Without a doubt the best part of my job is the patients. There’s nothing I love more than getting to know the patients, and helping them along their journey to a beautiful smile. A smile is a gift of kindness and happiness, and I believe every person should wear one with confidence!

Sons and Daughters is the true definition of family. The goal is not to just create the perfect smile that will last you a lifetime, but to make sure you also have a fun-filled experience! I feel so grateful to be a part of a team that is passionate about teeth and getting to know the people behind them!

When I’m not helping to make the world a better place one smile at a time, I can be found at yoga, trying to finish a half marathon, rooting for the Dodgers, or spending time with my family and friends. I would best describe myself as a Harry Potter fanatic and Hello Kitty enthusiast!

Ashley

Smile Lab Expert

Hello everyone! I have had the pleasure of working in the dental field for the last 6 years and plan to continue on for many, many more. While completing my internships in school I was able to work in several different specialities, but my favorites have always been orthodontics and pediatric dentistry. The best thing about orthodontics for me, is seeing the joy it brings to each person when they see their final results. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing office and that I get to work alongside some of the most talented and caring individuals in this industry. Now I get to live my passion of helping others achieve that perfect smile and hopefully making that experience a positive and memorable one.

A little more about me personally is that I have always enjoyed learning about different things and I like keeping busy. I have my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and am still continuing my education with courses in business administration. I enjoy spending my free time hanging out with family and friends, going to Dodger games, and I love shopping.

Brittany

Smile Lab Expert

I’ve been in the field of dentistry for 13 years. I started before I graduated from high school. There have been many of my family members in dentistry, so it was my calling too! Before orthodontics, I worked in general dentistry and pediatric dentistry. But I found my true passion in orthodontics. The best part of it is helping create beautiful smiles and developing trusting relationships with patients.

When I’m not helping create amazing smiles, I enjoy spending time with my two little boys who are 2 and 7. I enjoy traveling, baking, snowboarding, camping, creating handmade crafts, and going to hockey games.

Christina

Smile Lab Expert

To the field of Orthodontics I am no stranger. Starting my journey to become a Registered
Dental Assistant in 2002, I had no interest in any other field of dentistry other than
orthodontics. The idea that the transformation of a smile could change a person’s confidence
and self-esteem is something I knew I wanted to be a part of. Aside from this reward,
developing sincere relationships with patients along their journey is something I look forward
to; being able to relate to their orthodontic and personal experiences. I am excited to embrace
the new advances that have and are continuing to emerge in orthodontics. I value honesty,
morality and quality of work. Here at Sons & Daughters I can say that I confidently refer my
family, friends and acquaintances. To be involved with a team who’s desire and excitement for
our patient’s success (clinically and personally) is such a blessing!
Though I am a Bryson and am married to my best friend and High School sweetheart, Everett, I
proudly wear the name of Christ. Outside of the office you will usually find me on the
basketball court cheering on my two sons, Everett Jadyn and Earl Jaryn. Included in my family
are LeeBraun, our bearded dragon, and Inoki, our blue nose pitt bull. If personal time allows I
enjoy going on evening strolls, relaxing at the beach and crocheting. I am also a huge fan of
Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole.

Gina

Smile Lab Expert

I’ve been in the dental field for 8 years, most of them in Orthodontics. After graduation, I worked in general/Pediatric dentistry. But my interest was always focused in Orthodontics. Before school, I started my braces treatment and was fascinated at what was happening with my teeth. That triggered my passion in this amazing field. I wanted to help others feel confident and happy about their smiles like I was with mine. My motivation is creating beautiful smiles and strong relationships with the people around me. I consider myself blessed to feel at home away from home, working along an amazing team and incredible Doctors doing what I love. Learning new things and see how technology evolves in Orthodontics.

My favorite things to do outside the office are spending quality time with my beloved husband Jesus, enjoying family and friends. Playing with our dogs Jack the boxer and Sally the English bulldog. You’ll find us cheering for the Dodgers, fishing off Catalina Island, water rafting, snow boarding, camping or just in a new adventure creating unforgettable memories.

Laura

Smile Lab Expert

I’ve been in the dentistry field for 6 years. I began my journey with pediatric dentistry
first before entering the orthodontic field. I love being part of someone’s journey to
gaining so much confidence by transforming beautiful smiles.

I feel very blessed to be surrounded by a great work family here at Sons and
Daughters.

Away from work I love to spend time with my family, exploring new places, attending
concerts, or just having a nice picnic. Now that my daughter is older, we are stepping
outside of our comfort zone and traveling more and would love to travel outside of the
country.

Stephanie

Smile Lab Expert

I have been in the orthodontic field for more than 15 years. Before I stepped foot in the dental field, I was doing some accounting work. It was my friend who convinced me to work with her in an orthodontic office and that is where I got my first orthodontic assistant job. I thought it was just a means for me to get by to continue my education. Little did I know I would find a passion for working in the orthodontic field. Even having received a bachelor’s degree in accounting over a decade ago, I continue working as an assistant. I love learning the latest technology and anything related to orthodontics. I enjoy reading journals, Instagram posts about orthodontics and making orthodontic appliances. I also love helping and getting involved in people’s smile transformation process.  It is exciting for me, seeing the final stage when their braces are removed.  The confidence you see in patients with their new smiles is priceless!  It’s not considered work if you love what you do and do what you love.

When I am not working with the amazing team, I love to spend time with my son Lukas and husband Don. I like eating anything that doesn’t eat me first, so I am not afraid of trying anything. You can also find me cruising at Costco, maybe trying out new samples and spending all my money there. For the love of feeding my family, I finally started to like cooking. Besides food, I enjoy decorating and arranging cakes, flowers, and succulent plants. 

Haley

Smile Lab Assistant

Hello. I’m Haley! I haven’t been in orthodontics for that long but I’ve been interested in the field ever since I began my own braces journey. I’m very blessed to have the opportunity of being a part of such an amazing team here at Sons & Daughters Orthodontics. I’ve learned so much in such a short amount of time thanks to everyone and I still got a lot to learn! One of the many amazing things I get to witness here is the beautiful transformation of every smile. One day, I hope to help many people show off their smile with confidence as an orthodontist.

Outside of the office, I am a 3rd year student at CSULB, majoring in Health Science. On the weekends, I spend the majority of my time at church. I teach first graders on Religious Education. I’m also a youth leader for the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement. Other than that, I love to explore new places, especially restaurants, binge watch Netflix, and spend time with family and friends.

Vanessa

Smile Ambassador

My orthodontic journey started out as a patient back in elementary school when I got braces for the first time. I had them on for around 6 years before I got them off, but I did not wear my retainer afterwards, so my teeth became crooked again. Around 4 years ago, I felt unsatisfied with how my smile looked and that’s when I sought out orthodontics again. I had just moved from NorCal to SoCal for college and was in my 2nd year at the University of California, Riverside. I was looking for an orthodontics office that was a reasonable distance from school and found an awesome office called Sons and Daughters Orthodontics! I got the ceramic “clear” braces put on and I instantly fell in love with the positive atmosphere in the office and was always excited to come for my appointments. I never would’ve imagined I would be where I am today but getting to know Dr. Lee and Dr. Nguyen first as their patient and now as one of their staff has been an amazing experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything! Also, in case you were wondering, I wear my retainer every night now and could not be more satisfied with the results Sons and Daughters Orthodontics gave me, and I hope you will be too!

A little more about me is that I love to create art through graphic design! Whether it’s making flyers, posters, t-shirts, or just making artwork, I feel very lucky to be able to take this passion I love so much and see my works come to life through the t-shirts, flyers, or even the chalkboard wall in the office! I also love hanging out with my older sister here in Irvine, along with her two cats, Stella and Rosa, and spending time with my family when I visit NorCal!

Sarah

Smile Benefits Coordinator

I found my passion for orthodontics 13 years ago. Seeing the transformation people go through when they achieve their “dream smile” is amazing and I love being a part of it! I have worked every position in an orthodontic office: from sterilization to the clinical assistant, to treatment coordinator, and to my current role as the financial coordinator. I love being a part of a team that shares my excitement for creating beautiful smiles and providing patients with an exceptional experience.

When I’m not at the office, I spend all of my free time with my family watching movies, baking goodies, being outdoors with our dogs or just hanging out together.
