What makes us smile.

When you walk through our door, you’ll meet our team—and they’ll meet you. Actually meet you, not just shake your hand and nod you toward a chair. We all are here because we truly love what we do. Our team is built on a foundation of listening to each other and to the people we treat. If you’re busy, let us know! We’ll work around your schedule. If you’re nervous, that’s cool too! We’ll walk you through every step. We know how it is, and we don’t want to leave you feeling anxious and in the dark. Maybe something is poking or prodding or just causing a little worry. Just say so, and we will get you in real quick to fix it. From the moment you walk in on the first visit, to the last time you leave, you become a part of our team. By staying friendly, positive, and open we’re all able to work wonderfully together and provide you with the best smile possible.

Our Doctors

Lyndon Low DDS, MS

Dr. Lyndon Low is a native Stocktonian. He returned following his orthodontic education to spend 10 years on San Joaquin County’s Craniofacial Anomalies Team at San Joaquin General Hospital, counseling parents and families with cleft lip and palate deformities.

Looking to share his knowledge in other ways, he became a teacher at the University of Pacific’s School of Dentistry where he was an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Dental Practice that guides dental residents through orthodontic methodology and Invisalign treatment techniques.

When he isn’t out teaching or in the office with us, he’s at home with his wife Elise and his three children: Brent, Garrett, and Marisa. When he’s not with them, he’s on the court draining threes, coaching the fundamentals of basketball, scuba diving, reading, and painting.

Manjeet Samra DDS

Dr. Manjeet Samra (aka Mickey) was born and raised in Lodi, CA and graduated from Sierra High School in Manteca. He replaced one cow town for another when he accepted his admission to the University of California at Davis. He had always been interested in health and fitness so he decided to pursue a bachelors of science in Exercise Biology.

While in college, he decided to have his gap tooth fixed with Invisalign, and to his astonishment, the transformation was absolutely life changing. He became fascinated with orthodontics. After 4 years of training at the University of California San Francisco and 3 years of training at the University of Pittsburgh, his fascination led him to become an orthodontist. He now enjoys providing those same life-changing moments each and every day to his patients.

When he has a few tiny moments away from orthodontics he spends it with his family and his beautiful wife, Rajpreet. He has two little cousins named Harris and Mehek that are the absolute centers of his world. Aside from that, he likes to stay active playing sports and enjoying the outdoors.

Our Team

We understand that “Orthodontist” isn’t high on your list of places to visit, so we keep the good vibes going in our office and treat everyone who walks in our door like a person, not a patient. Our team treats one another that way too. It helps us all work better together and move as a single unit. We’re all friends that show up every day with the sole goal of helping people smile. You’re not a folder full of papers, and we’re not just punching the clock and counting the hours.

The office is full of some of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever met.
