Impressive Work Experience – Continuing the
Search for New and Better Technique
Dr. Bing Xia began his practice in San Francisco’s financial district.
Because of the great number of adult patients whom he treated there,
Dr. Xia was able to further pursue the latest in orthodontic appliances
and techniques. Since then, his practice has expanded both in the number
of sites in which he practices, as well as the treatment options which
he is able to offer his patients. He currently has locations across
the Bay Area including: San Francisco, the East Bay, and the Peninsula.
In his effort to keep abreast of the latest techniques in orthodontics,
Dr. Bing Elliot Xia is now able to offer patients a wide range of appliance options
which not only provide patients with quicker and more efficient orthodontic
treatment, but also take into account the growing demand among patients,
especially adults, for non-metal, more natural looking orthodontic appliances.
These options include non-staining tooth-colored braces, as well as
two relatively new breakthroughs in the science of orthodontics –
Invisalign and lingual braces.
Dr. Bing Xia thoroughly enjoys working with both children and adults to create
beautiful smiles. It is his goal to create an enjoyable, relaxed atmosphere
in which he is able to provide the highest quality orthodontics care
