Dr. Kimberley Wu is a Board Certified Orthodontist, specializing in Invisalign® and braces treatment that maximizes facial esthetics.

Dr. Wu is honored to be the only Ivy-league trained, Board Certified Orthodontist in South Pasadena.

She served as a UCLA faculty member, teaching the residents in the Orthodontic program and has published numerous research papers.

She also loves mentoring and serves as an interviewer and recruiter for MIT admissions.

She enjoys balancing professional life and spending time with her family.

“I am so grateful that I do what I love every day! There is nothing more rewarding than helping others and enhancing their self-confidence. I feel lucky that I have this opportunity to give my patients a reason to smile more."

    We are still going to Dr. Wu’s office for our orthodontic needs and several years later, I still can’t help but rave about Dr. Wu and her staff. They are so kind and welcoming. It just blows me away what an amazing practice this is. She has a wonderful personality and always makes you feel so comfortable and supported. She is that unique combination of being an excellent professional and a genuinely nice person. Her staff are just as awesome as she is. So I write this with mixed feelings because I want to keep Dr. Wu all to myself, but mostly I am thrilled that the word has gotten out about her practice. I am very picky about my recommendations and Dr. Wu is without hesitation the best of the bunch.

    Dr. Wu is incredibly professional, approachable, and intelligent. She clearly knows what she is talking about and conveys her knowledge to her patients in a way that a non-orthodontist can understand. Dr. Wu is truly sincere and honest – someone you would want to have as your friend, not just your orthodontist! FIVE STARS- I highly recommend this office for adults or for kids. Thank you for all of your help thus far!

    We were 100% satisfied with our experience with Dr. Wu and her staff. My son needed braces and we decided on Dr. Wu because of her knowledge and bedside manner. The price was reasonable, and the braces came off in the time frame specified. My son’s teeth look perfect! Both my son and I enjoyed his checkups. The staff is friendly and remembers who you are! The office is beautiful and very clean. Dr. Wu is warm and inviting! We highly recommend her! I have 2 younger children and if they need orthadonture we will definitely use Dr. Wu again.

    Dr. Wu is a great orthodontist and always made me feel comfortable and explained the options, treatment and process thoroughly. Also, her staff is awesome! They were consistently helpful, hard-working and kind. Everyone – including Dr. Wu – approaches their work with a good attitude, and it makes a noticeable difference in the office. I would recommend Dr. Wu to anyone looking for top-notch orthodontic care.

What We Believe

We believe that Life is about the people we meet and the happiness we share. We are passionate about people and so we accumulate relationships (not things!). We laugh often and smile more. Research even shows that smiling can make you happy. And happiness is contagious, in a good way. Life is short. Live your dream. Do what you love. For us, that just happens to be Orthodontics.

Wu-Orthodontist-Your-Kids

YOUR KIDS

Your little ones should be screened by an Orthodontic specialist around age 7 for developmental problems in the jaws and permanent teeth. Some problems are simply easier to correct and better for your child when treated early. Options at our South Pasadena Orthodontist location include expanders, growth modification, and braces.

YOUR TEENS

Early adolescence is the perfect time to start comprehensive orthodontic treatment. At Wu Orthodontics, we believe in helping our patients build self-confidence. Our South Pasadena braces treatments include clear braces and metal braces. Our South Pasadena Invisalign Teen® treatment helps them achieve a confident smile without all the metal!
