"When you seek orthodontic care for your child and find people such as Dr. Kawata and his staff, then you can be certain that you've found the best. They consistently display genuine concern, knowledge, and expertise that we have experienced throughout both our daughters' orthodontic care, which has spanned over more than a decade. This team of high level professionals has guided us through consultations and treatments that included X-rays, spacers, expanders, head gear, pulled teeth, rubber bands, and now retainers. Our expectations for orthodontic care have been exceeded countless times. We expected the end results of a ten-year journey and relationship with Dr. Kawata and his team to yield amazing smiles, which it has, but we have also greatly benefited from the care, concern, expertise, and guidance of the entire staff through every stage. We are grateful for the orthodontic journey we decided to embark upon with Dr. Kawata and his staff. Our daughters' smiles are a testament to the fact that we made the right decision."

"The best part of being a patient myself was personalized service. Dr. Kawata gave me several treatment options to choose from. He personalized my treatment to the ultimate goal of mine, which was to have straight teeth minus jaw surgery. The end result was a smile that I enjoy showing off. 
The staff enjoy getting to know you and they develop lasting relationships. When you walk in you are greeted by name and always with a smile. The office is always clean and organized.
I highly recommend this office to anyone who is searching for orthodontic treatment. They treat all ages, I couldn't see myself or my family going anywhere else. Dr. Kawata is currently treating my 16 year old and my youngest can't wait to get his braces on. What kid is excited about getting braces? Mine is.
Thank you Dr. Kawata and staff for my beautiful smile. You and your staff are wonderful and I am looking forward to continuing our lasting relationship."

"We have had the pleasure of being patients of Dr. Kawata's since 2007. My third and final child recently began her treatment, and to be honest, it makes me sad to think we will soon no longer be able to interact with Dr. Kawata and his wonderful team.
Dr. Kawata always has a smile on his face! He makes us feel like we are important to him in his approachable, caring ways. It is so refreshing to encounter such an efficient, friendly, and classy front and back office staff. They feel like family; we couldn't be happier here!
What is typically a frightening experience for children is actually a pleasant one when you are a patient of Dr. Kawata's. My kids have never complained about going to their appointments. They feel like they are getting personal attention every time, and Dr. Kawata always makes it a point to connect with them with his impeccable 'chair-side' manner."

We trust him completely. The staff is like one big family. It is so pleasant to come in every appointment and see happy people. Our family has become long-lasting friends with the office. Both of my daughters’ teeth look amazing! Big thanks to Dr. Kawata and staff.”

“Between the three of us, we were visiting Dr. Kawata’s office consecutively for six years, with one of us starting or completing braces every couple of years. We had nothing but positive experiences and results! When I (mom) saw how easy the process was, how beautiful my daughters’ teeth looked, and how caring the staff was, it was finally time to do braces too! There could not be a more professional and caring orthodontist’s office than Dr. Kawata’s!”

The Soto Family

“Our family recently had three members in braces at the same time! Dr. Kawata and his staff has made the experience a pleasure. They have dealt with us on a personal level, from explaining all the procedures being used, to remembering birthdays, and my family’s first names. Everyone at the front desk, to all the dental technicians, has been so friendly and professional. When we arrive for our appointments, we never have to wait and we are in and out in no time. My oldest son had his braces removed and we couldn’t be happier at the way his teeth turned out. We would definitely recommend Dr. Kawata for anyone’s orthodontic needs. The icing on the cake for me is that Dr. Kawata is a USC fan! Thanks for the great service and Fight On!”

“We first heard of Dr. Kawata through ‘word of mouth,’ which of course is the best advertisement. After setting up our initial consultation and after our first visit, I could see what everyone was talking about. I really appreciated his ‘wait and see’ approach. He was not aggressive in starting treatment and had us check back several times before my son got his braces. He was thorough and waited until the time was right. What an amazing office, staff, and overall experience. Now, after two years of treatment for my son and my daughter getting her braces within the next year or so, I can say it’s been a truly great experience. The staff is so friendly and personable that they greet you by name. I feel they have become friends over the years and are genuinely concerned about how you are. The office is spotless, clean, and both adult- and child-friendly. Everyone is courteous, friendly, and professional. He has such a calm, friendly, professional demeanor, and my kids feel completely confident when they are in the chair. I have referred many families to Dr. Kawata with enthusiastic thanks from those who have become orthodontic patients as well. We also appreciate that we could do a payment plan with no interest and the wonderful events that Dr. Kawata hosts each year. His practice makes you truly feel like part of a family!”

Demetor

“Dr. Kawata’s care and diligence in treating both our daughters eased our minds and educated us in how the orthodontic procedures would work. We were walked through each step of the process and provided accurate, detailed explanations of each separate challenge and required correction. We can’t thank the doctor and his staff enough for the amazing results (and beautiful smiles) the girls now have!”

The Phipps

"I was referred to Dr. Kawata by neighbors who told me that Dr. Kawata was the best! Now after my personal adult orthodontic treatment with Dr. Kawata, I am the very confident one referring everyone to Dr. Kawata because I trust him. I know he will do everything he can to get the best possible results. I always felt confident in his expertise because Dr. Kawata always explains everything about the treatment he provides. Thank you Dr. Kawata, I always smile with confidence!
Dr. Kawata also did an outstanding job with my children's orthodontic treatment. I knew that my family was getting the most up to date orthodontic care available because he's part of the USC School of Dentistry faculty. Dr. Kawata and his friendly office staff always welcome us to a very clean state-of-the-art facility with all the tween/teen details that his patients really appreciate!

"This is our third and final child to have the privilege of having Dr. Kawata as her orthodontist. Being the mom and having to make all the appointments, Dr. Kawata's office has made my experience a joy!" The best part about being Dr.Kawata's patient is the feeling of being completely taken care of. If I ever had a concern, it has always been addressed. Not only is Dr. Kawata a highly intelligent man, his character and principles come through first. My daughter has the privilege of seeing how a professional office should be run. She also benefits by having a beautiful smile now. The office is always so organized, on time and very pleasant."
 — K.O. Fitzgerald

"I am 64 years old and was terrified of coming to the orthodontist but got to the point of having to. All the staff here is so kind and gentle and now I am relaxed and calm. I have braces! I'm excited! I feel so comfortable here and Dr. Kawata and his staff are so professional and knowledgeable!"
