Dr Rob

Hi ! -- I'm Doctor Rob !

Everyone asks me, “When did you decide to be a dentist?” I am a little out of the ordinary as I decided to become a dentist when I was 6 years old. My mother wrote in my scrapbook that after a visit to my childhood dentist I told her, “I’m going to be a dentist.”

I believe loving what you do provides the excitement to begin each day with enthusiasm. Orthodontics is a profession where we make a life long impact and significant difference in people’s lives.

It’s an honor to help patients achieve a fabulous smile. Each person whose braces come off allows us the opportunity to change lives, one smile at a time. The cards and thank you notes remind us of the difference we make. One patient in particular stands out--a young girl, who happened to be blind, who wanted her smile to light up the room. When we completed her care, she told me, “I can’t see my smile, but I can feel it!”

Our team builds relationships with everyone who visits us. We make the journey to a beautiful smile more than brackets and wires. By having fun with our patients and their families we strive to create a memorable experience.

It would be my privilege to be your orthodontist - we would love to help you achieve the smile you deserve.

Dr. Le

Dr. LeHello – I’m Doctor Le !

I have such positive memories of my first pediatric dentist, Dr. Haeberlein. When my family arrived in the US as refugees from Vietnam, we relied heavily on Medi-Cal and other government assistance programs to cover the cost of healthcare and living.  I will never forget the utmost care and compassion we received from Dr. Haeberlein and his staff. This definitely inspired me to become a dentist who was just as kind, compassionate, and thoughtful. 

After completing my orthodontic residency, my husband and I returned to the bay area to be closer to both of our families.

I have a passion to create a life-long impact on peoples’ lives by creating extraordinary smiles with unequalled passion and incredible service. I have studied obstructive sleep apnea and other forms of sleep-disordered breathing. It is my strong desire to bring this knowledge to our patients and their families. This has become a silent epidemic in our country, and left untreated, can be a serious and life-altering disease.
