White Oak Dental & Orthodontics started with a simple idea. What if instead of using dentistry to just treat teeth, we took care of people instead?
In a world filled with countless corporate-owned dental practices, we wanted to give local Woodbridge families the option to be looked after by a local family.

Only 30% of orthodontists in the United States are Board Certified. In addition to the 3 years of specialized training required, Dr. Lai successfully completed a rigorous process consisting of written and clinical testing administered by a panel of examiners. This voluntary achievement shows Dr. Lai’s personal commitment to providing the highest quality of patient care possible. In short, whether you’re interested in traditional orthodontics or discreet alternatives, like Invisalign, she’s the nearby expert to trust!
