Dr. Bethany Jung
Witnessing someone’s smile transform and their confidence blossom as a direct result of something you helped create makes Dr. Bethany Jung’s feel like her job is the best job in the world! She feels incredibly lucky and honored to be able to impact lives in this way and it’s what motivates her to provide the best quality of care and overall experience for her patients every day. Having been through braces myself, Dr. Jung can relate to what her patients are going through and it is her goal to make orthodontics a fun, comfortable, and enjoyable experience for all her patients, just as it was for her.
Dr. Jung is originally a Texas gal, but moved to sunny SoCal for orthodontic residency where she met her wonderful husband Nick, who’s a physician at Kaiser. They are blessed to have one beautiful daughter. When Dr. Jung is not practicing orthodontics, she loves spending time with her husband and daughter, going to the beach, exploring new restaurants in LA, snowboarding, and traveling to new places.
