Meet Dr. Doyoung Choi
When I first considered my career in orthodontics, I didn’t realize how truly amazing it is to change and affect my patients’ lives. I’ve had patients who never smiled before but cannot stop smiling once their treatment was finished. I’ve seen so many patients become more confident with better self-esteem.
Not everyone in this world has the privilege to work with so many wonderful people with positive attitudes and goals. That’s why I wake up in the morning looking forward to working with new lives every day.

I’m always excited to learn more and adopt new ideas to maintain and improve my clinical skills. The field of orthodontics sees new developments every year, and I regard it as crucial to keep up with all the available clinical evidence. This helps our practice offer the newest and most efficient treatment options, including Invisalign®, aesthetic braces, and mini implants. The only thing I like more than the complexity of the field are the happy smiles we create!

Outside the Office
My husband Benedict and I met in college and got married when we finished school. He is a general surgeon who works at Heritage Valley Health System in Beaver, Pennsylvania. We have two little dogs, Jax and Opie. Jax is a Shih Tzu-and-Chihuahua mix, and Opie is a Yorkie-and-Chihuahua mix. They are registered therapy dogs, so they come to work at the office every day. If you’re feeling nervous about your appointment, Jax and Opie can help you feel comfortable!
I thrive on getting new experiences, going to new places, facing new challenges, and trying new dishes. I embrace the differences that make life more interesting. The most recent endeavor I started dabbling into is ping-pong, and I need a lot of practice!
