About Bloom Orthodontics in Long Beach

Creating beautiful smiles through the art and science of braces.

At Bloom Orthodontics, we've been helping Long Beach families achieve brighter smiles – one patient at a time – for three generations!

Founded in 1966 by Drs. James Loos and Eldor Sagehorn, our practice was built on the idea that service and value are every bit as important as dental tools and orthodontic techniques. The tradition of greeting every person with a smile and encouraging open communication between the doctor and families  continued with Dr. Katsura, who quickly became a favorite with teens, parents, and others looking for straighter, healthier teeth.

Now, as the third generation of USC-trained orthodontists in this practice, Dr. Thao Nguyen Vu will not only continue the traditions that have kept Long Beach families returning each generation, but will also bring the latest orthodontic tools and state-of-the-art technology to ensure that every patient receives the most efficient and effective treatment possible.

While you might notice that we’re bringing you lots of new ways to improve your smile – like Invisalign, Radiance clear brackets, and Incognito lingual braces and other new treatment modalities – you’ll find that we still have a friendly, welcoming staff ready to explain treatment options and answer any questions you might have. And because we accept all major insurance and offer complimentary consultations, you can see what it's like to work with us without any risk or obligation. 

There may be a lot of orthodontists in Long Beach, but there is only one Bloom Orthodontics. If you want the very best in modern, safe, and comfortable orthodontic care, we invite you to make an appointment to come see us today.
