If you’re wondering how things have changed and the steps we’re taking to keep patients and our team safe during visits, read all about our new protocols here

Shop Local in El Dorado Hills: Coronavirus Edition

By Blog, Community No Comments

While staying home has been really important for helping to flatten the curve, it has been tough for small businesses, including restaurants, boutiques, salons and even orthodontists.

That’s why, during this time, if it’s in your means, it’s so important to support local businesses.

Jeffrey Kwong Orthodontics is Now Offering INBRACE ® Lingual Braces

By Blog, Orthodontics No Comments

Traditional braces are an awesome treatment option and a lot of patients love them but many older teens and adults gravitate towards under-the-radar orthodontic solutions like clear aligners. For some, it’s because they worry brackets and wires don’t look professional and for others, they just don’t want to draw attention to their smile when they’re already self conscious about it.
