We know you have a choice of offices in the area that provide orthodontic services. We thank you for the opportunity to share and demonstrate what our practice can provide for you or your child.

Please be aware that braces are simply a tool. Results that are achieved depend entirely upon the skill level, the almost 25 years of clinical practice, continuing education, and application of orthodontic science and artistic skills, of Dr. Low. This is the single most important factor to consider in choosing an orthodontic practice.

Here are some features of our practice About 50% of the patients referred to our office are from patients and parents who are either in treatment or have completed treatment with us. One of the highest compliments we can receive is when our patients refer their friends and relatives to us! The other 50% of the patients referred to our office come from pediatric dentists, family dentists, general dentists, oral surgeons, and periodontists we have known and worked with for many years. We have treated many members of their families. They have seen the consistently great smiles of their patients after treatment, and have received positive feedback about our superior service. Dr. Low diagnoses and treatment plans every case using digital radiographs, computerized analysis, digital photographs, and diagnostic models mounted on an instrument (articulator) that replicates the patient’s bite. These findings and proposed treatments are presented at the pre-treatment conference. Dr. Low places all the braces himself. This is the single most important aspect of treatment, because the placement of braces is a technically detailed procedure. When it’s done properly, the teeth move efficiently and the final orthodontic results are achieved easier and faster. Dr. Low routinely corrects the alignment and positions of the second molars (12-year molars). This may help to illustrate why some treatment plans are projected to be longer because the movement, proper alignment, and position of these molars are technically more challenging. Studies show their proper positioning and alignment are vital for a proper bite. This is another significant aspect of treatment. Dr. Low evaluates the third molars (wisdom teeth) at three points in time: beginning of treatment, mid treatment, and post treatment. Recommendations will be made depending on their positions. Before treatment begins, Dr. Low writes a letter to the patient’s dentist to describe the orthodontic needs and the proposed treatment. Dr. Low prescribes the angulations, the tip, and the torque in the braces, and determines any needed appliances for treatment. All patients are treated with a new braces, bands, archwires, custom-made appliances, and retainers. All are prescribed by Dr. Low. Dr. Low sees all patients during their appointments and makes the clinical decisions.


Dr. Charles Low has enjoyed creating beautiful smiles for more than 25 years. He received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of California, Los Angeles. Upon completing his doctorate, he continued in his studies at UCLA and became a specialist in pediatric dentistry.

In his quest to provide the ultimate in quality orthodontic care for adults as well as children, Dr. Low completed additional special training. He combined his training in orthodontics with completion of his master’s in oral biology at the University of Missouri, Kansas City.

Using the knowledge gained in both specialties, Dr. Low treats a full range of orthodontic needs, from the young child and the adolescent to the adult patient. He has successfully utilized his understanding of facial growth and development to help achieve a healthy, attractive smile for his patients.

His desire for excellence continues today. Dr. Low is a clinical assistant professor at the University of Southern California, School of Dentistry, Department of Orthodontics. He trains other dentists in the use of innovative orthodontic techniques. Dr. Low is the orthodontist other dentists have entrusted to for their families.

Dr. Low enjoys traveling with his wife and three daughters. When the opportunity arises, he loves to cook on his outdoor grill.
