Dr. Quo is simply the best. We've been working with her since my son was 7. He's now 17 and has a beautiful smile. It was a challenging long-term case and the process couldn't have been smoother, kinder or more cost-effective. I give the amazing Stacey and her wonderful, talented team the highest possible recommendation!

The staff made our first experience with braces a breeze. Everyone worked together so well; the transition from the beginning of our appointment to end was seamless.

Pretty good

The doctors were very nice and very kind, they were trustworthy and made the process easy

Besides the normal annoyingness of not being able to chew gum, there was no other problems or inconvenience s. Also, everybody was very nice and kind. Overall, 10/10.

Dr Quo is great! Conservative with treatment recommendations. She doesn't recommend treatments that the patient doesn't need! Very refreshing. Also excellent with our child who has sensory integration challenges. Recommend her highly!

in San Francisco, CA |
I enjoyed meeting with Dr. Quo! She and her team are welcoming and friendly. I look forward to my braces and visits to their great office.
in Palo Alto, CA |
Stacey and her staff were extremely sensitive and kind to my 7-year-old at his initial consult, much more so that the other orthodontic office we had previously visited. She is extremely knowledgeable and takes time to explain everything and answer any and all questions. I highly recommend her over any others in the area.
in Menlo Park, CA |
Dr. Quo is communicative and clear. She explains what she is proposing to do and why and she engages both with me as a parent and with my son as patient to be sure that we are comfortable with the choices and direction in which we are headed. She has composed an incredibly competent and friendly team as well.
Palo Alto, CA |
After 3 years! We realized that: Its All about money, charging more and more. Keep you longer as she can! charging you for the third a beautifully and retainers. We spend a huge amount of money and my daughter does not want to have another beautifully. Now she is saying that is because my little girl has sleep apnea we should have done something about it. Please tell me why she did take her as a patient at the first place? She should have refuse her because she knew it apparently.
