ORTHODONTICS FOR KIDS
Dr. Loo and Dr. Yen recommend that children have their first orthodontic appointment when they turn 7 years old. By then, their first adult teeth have come through and can be evaluated for any irregular teeth and jaw concerns like cross bites, under bites, and crowding.
ORTHODONTICS FOR ADULTS
Improve your personal appearance, self-esteem and the health of your teeth and gums through orthodontic treatment. We use a variety of dental appliances to help create beautiful, healthier smiles.
Corrective jaw surgery, known as orthognathic surgery, corrects conditions of the face and jaw that cannot easily be treated with braces. In addition to affecting your facial appearance, jaw problems may affect your ability to chew, speak, and breathe.
CLEFT LIP/PALATE & CRANIOFACIAL
Dr. Loo is a member of the Cleft Palate & Craniofacial team at BC Children's Hospital, where she is often involved in treating newborn patients before they have surgery. Find out about the conditions Dr. Loo and the Cleft Palate & Craniofacial Team treat by calling the practice at (604) 261-8890.
Individuals who are both diagnosed with a congenital facial disorder and covered under BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) are billed directly to the government insurer. For all other insurance coverages, payments are made directly to the insurer (patient/parent).
For more information about insurance, please call the practice at (604) 261-8890.
YOUR FIRST VISITS
During your initial consultation, Dr. Loo will review your health history, discuss your treatment goals, perform an orthodontic exam and take diagnostic records (digital xrays and photographs).
After Dr. Loo has reviewed your case, she will discuss your customized treatment plan in detail, including the costs, treatment timeline and expectations.
If you're not able to keep your appointment, please contact the office 48 hrs in advance. Cancel only in an emergency, as rescheduling can take up to 4-8 weeks.
Fees are determined by the difficulty of the original dental bite, the age of the patient, the number of phases involved in treatment, and the need for jaw surgery to provide an ideal correction.
Our payment options may be individualized to accommodate each patient. Although the payment options are quite flexible, the most common payment plan chosen by patients who are undergoing full treatment includes an initial appliance fee, followed by the division of the balance over 20 months.
For more information, please call the practice at (604) 261-8890.

The reason I went to see Dr. Loo was to get a 2nd unbiased opinion in regards to my child's orthodontic treatment. My first impression of Dr. Loo was that she understood my concerns and truly wanted to see how she can make this a win-win situation which I really appreciated. She is really knowledgeable in her trade because she was talking really fast...lol! I thought I had to take notes but she assured me that a letter with various option plans discussed today will be mailed to me before I decide anything. Dr. Loo is also really sociable, approachable and understanding.
Yes, I will definitely recommend others to see her for orthodontic work. She is located in the Kerrisdale area, easy to find parking and nice area to walk around.
PS: Shout out to Tammy, great to see you today! Didn't know you work at Dr. Loo's clinic. Small world!
