    What is a Designer Smile?

    At Dr. Melanie Orthodontics, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to orthodontics. Every patient’s mouth and goals for their smile are unique, requiring custom care based on their facial features and lifestyle. That’s what designer smiles are all about: using holistic orthodontics and the latest technology to create beautiful smiles our Rancho Santa Fe orthodontic patients love.

    Traditional orthodontic treatment paved the way for straighter smiles for generations, but chunky metal braces are a thing of the past. Nowadays, you have so many options to choose from for your orthodontic treatment — from modern braces like ceramic or clear braces, to clear aligner systems like Invisalign, TLC and 3M Clarity.

    No matter what your smile goals, Dr. Melanie can design a customized treatment plan for you. With her specialized approach to orthodontics, Dr. Melanie has reimagined what it means to straighten teeth. She’s so much more than an orthodontist — she’s a smile designer.

    Meet the Doctor

    San Diego orthodontist Dr. Melanie Wang grew up in the area she now serves. As the daughter of a dentist, you could say perfecting smiles is in her genes! Dr. Melanie attended UCLA School Dentistry, a top-tier dental school, before completing her orthodontic specialty training at St. Louis University in Missouri.

    Dr. Melanie opened her first practice in 4S Ranch in 2007 and has been offering exceptional, high-tech orthodontic care to her patients ever since. She’s dedicated to making treatment as comfortable, convenient, affordable and, yes, as fun as possible.

      There are lots of choices when choosing an orthodontist. Dr. Melanie shows her patients how much she appreciates them all the time. She always has fun things for her patients and families to build community and have fun. She makes my son love going into the office and see what is coming up. It’s been a great experience!

      You can tell a lot about a practice though their actions. One of my patients had an emergency while in San Diego and I reached out to Dr. Melanie. I was super impressed to hear from my patient on the FANTASTIC service she received from Dr. Melanie & her team. If they treat a visiting patient like this, I can only imagine the EXCELLENT care they give to all of their patients 🙂 I give them my highest recommendation!

      It is very rare to find an orthodontics that your kids are excited to go visit. I had to visit Dr. Melanie for my daughter’s braces and my son had to go through a jaw/bite re-alignment. Both took about 18 months of visits. I told my son in a few weeks he will have to go back and get braces for another 18- month process. He was excited to visit Dr. Melanie and her staff again. They are all very friendly and they make you feel at home. I highly recommend them!

      All my boys look forward to go to Dr. Melanie... A great staff and friendly atmosphere. I think the boys like the juice supply and freshly baked cookies more than the service ;). She works well with teaching the boys to take care of their teeth with and without the braces. Half the clan has gotten treatment and the other 2 will surely go to get for othodontics services.
