I absolutely live these people. Raquel, Leslie, and Dr. Duong are always very friendly, and they truly show how much they care about you. I hate going to the dentist, and as much discomfort as I have because if my age and undergoing having braces, I don't mind seeing these ladies regularly. All are very professional, and from what I have seen when I'm there everyone feels the same as I do. I recommend Dr. DUONG for anyone who needs braces or is thinking about doing so.

Maria B.

"Sun orthodontics has put braces on both of my kids teeth. My daughter finished before the estimated length of treatment and guess what.. they removed her braces and adjusted our payments. I checked out the "Big" names in the area and did consults with 2 other offices. Dr. Melanie Duong is very down to earth and there was not any high pressure sales pitch. They are very flexible in working with you and your financing. The office is very comfortable and reminds me of the old school dental offices. We have had a great experience."

Kristen L.

"It's been awhile but I wanted to update my review!"

"Dr. Melanie Duong of Sun Orthodondics & staff are absolutely top notch! My oldest daughter just wrapped up her treatment & I have to say the difference is incredible. Dr. Duong is also now treating my 11 yr old & soon my 8 yr old will be in treatment as well. This would not be possible for me elsewhere but Dr. has set up a personal payment plan suited just for our family!"

"Dr. is never in a rush & always has time to go over any questions or concerns. The staff is always very friendly and really on top of it! I never have had a scheduling problem or a problem rescheduling."

"We have had a few incidents were my son had lose wires, (his doing),that needed repair ASAP & Dr. Duong has been kind enough to always get us in ASAP & even opened office on a few Saturdays for emergencies, NO EXTRA CHARGE!"

"I love coming to Sun Orhodonstist office. The staff are incredibly friendly, flexible, professional and knowledgeable. Raquel is the blessings in disguise. She works around your schedule to accommodate the appointments. She always greets clients with genuine smile and remembers everyone by their names. Dr Melanie H. Duong has a delicate touch yet is so good with her technique that is extraordinary. She was able to expand the bone structure of the teeth without surgical intervention. I would highly recommend this office!!!"

Bridgette"I couldn't have asked for a better orthodontist! Dr. Duong has a genuine concern for her patients and is attentive to detail. I always get numerous compliments on how great my smile looks. Along with that compliment is advice on how I ought to thank my parents for the great investment they made.

Dr. Duong not only cares about my teeth, but cares about you as a person too. She has sponsored me in pageants, including Miss Rancho Bernardo Teen and Miss Philippines of San Diego. She also attended my birthday celebrations. Dr. Duong put my braces on when I was 13 and took them off when I was 14. I am now 22-years-old and still keep in touch with her. If you choose her as an orthodontist, you also choose her as a friend for years to come.”

Bridgette T.

Phuong"It is my pleasure to provide this testimonial for Dr. Duong! I came to Dr. Duong because she is well known for her meticulous care and hands on approach with all patients, especially those of us requiring orthognathic (jaw) surgery.

My case took three years and required careful planning from beginning to end. Dr. Duong worked alongside my oral surgeons and what a dynamic team they made! I could not have been in better hands. Working closely with my surgeons, a treatment plan was formulated in the first year and there was constant communication between the offices up until my surgery date. During my bi-weekly visits, Dr. Duong prepped me with each step for the surgery to come. My surgeons, having worked with many orthodontists in the area (and out of the area), were highly impressed with Dr. Duong’s attention to detail and the extra care she took to make the surgery smoother for me (and of course, for them). As a matter of practice, Dr. Duong would be there in the operating room to support her patients. Sadly for me, Dr. Duong was not affiliated with the hospital where I had my surgery and she was not able to be in attendance. However, between Dr. Duong’s methodical orthodontic work and the surgeon’s skillful hands, my surgery went off without a hitch! It was also very nice to see a familiar face out of post-op. Yes! She even came to visit me in the hospital!

I am so pleased with my result and can’t thank Dr. Duong enough for the beautiful smile I have now. Her confidence and support really gave me the strength to endure the braces and surgery. I am grateful for her care and wonderful work. Without Dr. Duong, I don’t think I would have even considered the surgery!

Thank you for your great work Dr. Duong! I have every reason to smile and I am definitely smiling more often now!"

Pham P.

"Dear Dr. Duong,

I’ve taken too long to get this card to you. I’m so appreciative, beyond words, for the care and time you put into my case. Gem has all of the notes and refers to them often when treating me. You did so much work, just to give me an answer about getting braces, and I want you to know how much I appreciate the time you took and your genuine concern for me as a patient. You are rare and I thank you."

Susan H.

"Professional, genuine, and sincere; these are only a few words that come to my mind when I think about the services and people that are involved with Sun Orthodontics. Right from the beginning I was a little unsure about braces and how I would feel with them, but the staff at Sun Orthodontics walked me through the process of choosing a type of brace that I would feel comfortable with. In my eyes, I feel that they have a true sincere love for their patients and our overall satisfaction. I truly could not be happier with my smile. These kind ladies make sure that our comfort is on the top of their list as well. They have a depth of caring and passion about their work that is hard to find in other orthodontic offices. I have referred their services to all of my friends and family. These women have made me feel so much more confident about my smile. I am extremely satisfied with their service and how I feel so at ease once I walk into their office.

My name is Drew Lawrence Sundly. I am twenty-one years old and live in Escondido, Ca. This is what Sun Orthodontics means to me. They love their patients and it really shows."

"Pictures tell a thousand words. So I don't have to say how wonderful your work is! We appreciate your kindness, professionalism, and flexibility. You are the best"

David, Margo, Laura and Katie W.

“Just a little note to say “Thank You” for all the special attention you have given me over the past year. Your patience and kindness is very much appreciated. You each have a special way of making a patient feel like they are the only one. Dr. Duong, you keep being the wonderful “artist” that you are and make many, many more beautiful smiles.”


“I never thought the day would come when I could smile wholeheartedly without being embarrassed by my teeth. The day has come. I am actually proud of my smile. And I’m proud to tell anyone who asks, “Dr. Duong did this!” Not only are you sweet, gentle, and pretty. You are an excellent orthodontist. I would tell anyone to go to you. You’re the best! I hope you enjoy the pie! (and brownies). God bless you! Forever Grateful.”

Karen L. V.

“Thank you for all of your help with Carly and Daryl. We all will miss you. You know I hope you will be happy in whatever the future brings you. Thanks also, for all of your support over the years. Keep in touch.”


“We would like to say thank you for your professional services and kindness to my two children, Royce and Hailey. I feel I have a wonderful friendship with your doctor. We will miss you."
