Comfort, Care & Convenience

You may have a lot of orthodontic options here in Portland and Windham, but your smile is our top priority. See how we make your family feel at home with Dr. Joanna Yu at Adult & Pediatric Orthodontics.

Expert Training

Dr. Joanna Yu is an orthodontist. Orthodontists are dentists first and only about six out of every 100 dental grads continue the specialized training needed to become an orthodontist.

To practice orthodontics, Dr. Yu spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).

When she was an orthodontic student, Dr. Yu spent three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and to guide facial development.

As an Invisalign Plat Provider, Dr. Yu proves her extensive experience using Invisalign to successfully straighten smiles. She achieves stunning results, even if your case is too complex for at-home aligners or less experienced providers. You want an expert to create your new smile and not by choosing clear aligners you can get in the mail.

Why Early Orthodontic Treatment Matters

Comfortable Treatments

At Adult & Pediatric Orthodontics, we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.

Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be because Dr. Joanna Yu invests in cutting-edge technologies.

At Adult & Pediatric Orthodontics, we use Damon braces, the very first self-ligating bracket system. Damon braces use lightweight wires and lower friction brackets, resulting in fewer adjustment appointments, less discomfort, and faster treatment.

Affordable Smiles

We believe that braces shouldn’t break your bank. With our flexible pricing options, we provide personalized payment plans that will work for you and your family’s budget.

After we’ve determined your insurance coverage and filed it for you, we'll sit down and come up with a monthly payment plan that fits your family’s budget. You can even get a discount if you pay in full on the front end.

Modern Techniques

For more than 15 years, Dr. Yu has been creating smiles in the Portland and Windham communities. Every patient has different needs and Dr. Yu and her team use the latest technologies and treatments to meet every patient’s unique needs to ensure the best results and beautiful smiles.

Dr. Yu is up-to-date on the latest in orthodontic treatment and braces technology. Adult & Pediatric Orthodontics is your location in Portland and Windham for modern orthodontic treatment.

We offer aesthetic options like Damon braces and Invisalign for faster and more efficient tooth movement and faster treatment times.
