Dr. Rachel Anderson
Dr. Rachel is an Oregon native and graduated summa cum laude from Pacific University with a double major in chemistry and biology. She attended the Harvard School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA, where she graduated with honors. After obtaining her dental degree, Dr. Rachel was commissioned as an officer in the United States Navy and was stationed overseas in Okinawa, Japan, serving the dental needs of active duty service members and their families. During her time with the Navy, Dr. Rachel had many unique opportunities, such as serving on a health care mission to Cambodia and doing dental presentations at Japanese and American schools.
Following her service, Dr. Rachel pursued her passion for pediatric dentistry with a residency at the Harvard affiliated Boston Children’s Hospital. Her focus was on dental care for children and patients with special needs. Dr. Rachel continued to share her love of pediatric dentistry by joining the faculty at the University at Buffalo in Buffalo, New York, where she relocated with her husband (also a dentist).
Recently, Dr. Rachel and her family traded in the snow for sunny California, where she joined the team at Sweet Orthodontics. She is enthusiastic about coaching families on healthy habits that lead to a healthy mouth and a healthy body. She also joined the faculty at the University of Southern California, where she can share her passion for pediatric dentistry with dental students and residents.
Dr. Rachel is a diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. She is also a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, California Society of Pediatric Dentistry and Western Society of Pediatric Dentistry.
When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Rachel can be found spending time with her husband and three children. She also enjoys training for marathons and triathlons, particularly riding her bike along the PCH, even during the winter months. An animal lover, her family also includes a toilet trained cat, a bearded dragon, and a Klee Kai puppy.
Dr. Victoria Duong
I love orthodontics. I feel happy about my ability to make positive changes in someone’s life. Seeing a smile transform is something that never gets old.
I have been blessed with a supportive and caring team. Together, we strive to help you bring your best smile and self forward. The best parts about our practice are the team and the long-lasting relationships that we establish with our patients and the community.
I married my high school sweetheart, and we have a feisty Bichon-Shih Tzu. In addition to my passion for orthodontics, I am a food fanatic! My husband and I like to find new restaurants, local hangouts, and food trucks to sample and try. We also enjoy traveling, hiking, and most recently TikToking!
