Since the age of 10, Dr. Linda Phi wanted to become an orthodontist. After she had her braces, she was able to smile more, laugh more, and express herself to the fullest. In return, she wants to give all her patients the same experience: an increased confidence in both their smile and self-growth. She believes in treating her patients with the plan that best suits their needs, whether it is early treatment, braces, or Invisalign. Her goal is to give her patients the best smile utilizing the latest technology, and to provide the highest quality service to them and their families.

At The Brace Place, she believes that her teamwork with Dr. Audrey Yoon will give each patient the smile and confidence they deserve to have – a smile they will take with them into their future.
