We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Moon to Coolsmiles Orthodontics


We wanted you to get to know Dr. Moon better so we sat down with her recently to ask some questions. We just know you will like her as much as we do.

What fueled your interest in orthodontics?

I like the way it makes you think.  I always liked math because you needed to figure out the answer, but not only that, but I couldn’t just memorize the formulas.  I needed to know why.  It’s the same way with orthodontics, where I need to figure out how to get to the end – a functional occlusion and a nice smile – and what is the best way to do the things I need to do to get there.

What would you want your parents/patients to know about you?

I grew up in New York with hard-working parents who did everything they could to give me a good life and as many opportunities possible, which made me who I am.  I will always work hard and do my best and will treat people the way that I would like to be treated.

What makes you look forward to coming to work every day?

It makes me happy to know that there is something that I can do to make someone else happy.  I’m lucky to be one of those people that like my profession.  But also important is that you enjoy the people that you work with and that you care for one another like an extended family.

What do you consider your greatest accomplishment?

Giving birth to my daughter, Melody.

Can you tell us about your educational background and experience?

As usual, we would love to hear what you think in the “comments” box below.

At Coolsmiles, We Hear You!

We believe that providing outstanding treatment results coupled with world class customer service has been the key to our success.  In addition to taking advanced courses, working with outside consultants and providing our staff with customer service training, we make sure we listen to our patients.

You have shared that you would like more scheduling flexibility with an increased number of after school appointments for longer clinical appointments such as putting braces on and repairing broken appliances.  We also understand that you have come to rely on email reminders and would like the option of text as well as phone reminders.

I’m proud to announce two changes, which will go into effect immediately, based on your feedback.

First, I’d like to introduce the newest member of our Coolsmiles team, Dr. Bahn Yah Moon.  Dr. David and I have both worked with Dr. Moon in the past and feel very fortunate that she has elected to join our practice.  She is an exceptional clinician and has a warm, caring personality, which makes her a perfect fit.  With the addition of Dr. Moon, you will find additional availability of longer after school appointments.

Second, I would like to introduce Coolsmiles 24/7, our new online patient center. This offers the convenience of 24/7 access to your account information as well as the ability to choose how you would prefer to be contacted by us.

Now you can:

– Turn on and off text, email or phone appointment reminders

– Check appointments online

– View your account balance and insurance payments

– View treatment images and x-rays

– And much more!

It is easy and quick to get started! To access your secure account online:

– Go to www.coolsmiles.com

I hope these changes will make your busy life easier.
