When my daughter asked me for braces for her slightly crooked teeth I cringed slightly. 3,000?! But I thought it would've helped her general oral health if I prevented major teeth problems from happening in the future. Dr. Niu has been in the business for at least ten years and was reccommended to me by a neighbor. He and his staff have been friendly enough to talk to my daughter about the sanitation of the instruments used and the wiring and the fact that her teeth may not come out perfect to the point where it's scary. He seems to be a pretty good orthodontist because at this point my daughter's teeth are looking much better aligned than it did 1 1/2 years ago.
