In addition to that, I love working with my hands, I love being around people, and I love having the ability to provide an office environment that can produce not only wonderful smiles, but also strong inter-personal relationships.

My dental experience began over 5 years ago and every year seems to get a whole lot brighter. The moment I started dental assisting school, I knew that I wanted to become an orthodontic assistant. I have the opportunity to share a slice of a patient’s life and guide them through their orthodontic treatment. Every day I meet new, interesting people that somehow I find something in common with and sparks up a conversation that sees no end. That’s what I love most about my job, how strangers become a part of your orthodontic family. In my free time I love traveling and spending time with family.

Sheila Luwiharto DDS MS, your experienced family orthodontist in Mission Viejo and South Orange County California. Conventional or invisible braces, Invisalign clear aligner.

Dr. Staples found the perfect place to start his practice when he first saw Mission Viejo. A native Californian, he wanted to find a community that catered to his vision of both his work and family life. His dream was to raise his family in a town that provided a safe, friendly environment with good schools and healthy family values.

Since moving to Mission Viejo in 1976, Dr. Staples has been a figure in Mission Viejo both personally and professionally. With his wife, Durenda, they raised 3 children and experienced many years of community interaction and support. From Little League to club soccer, high school football and gymnastics, Dr. Staples has been an active parent in nearly all sporting organizations that are available in Mission Viejo. And now that his children are grown, Dr. Staples is committed to staying involved in the community by professionally sponsoring many local teams and schools. Dr. Staples has participated in other things such as the Elk’s Club, Charity Events, Food Drives and in-classroom dental education at many local elementary schools. Dr. Staples also spent many years as an active member of an a cappella singing group that performed at numerous churches, local civic events and social outreach programs.

Aside from his personal endeavors, Dr. Staples’ educational and professional background is substantial. A graduate of Whittier College, Loyola University School of Dentistry and the USC Orthodontic Department, Dr. Staples considers educational curiosity to be the hallmark of a professional’s life. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, which is the highest level of professional achievement for diagnostic abilities and treatment skills. He is also a former clinical professor for the UCLA School of Dentistry’s Orthodontic Department and the inventor of an innovative orthodontic expansion device that is used in orthodontic offices worldwide. He reads every piece of dental and orthodontic literature that he can find, and continually takes advanced, specialized courses that involve the latest breakthroughs in the profession.

Over the years, Dr. Staples’ professional and personal involvement in Mission Viejo has brought smiles to many faces you see every day. With everything he has done, Dr. Staples has never veered from his initial dream to provide honest, exceptional orthodontic care to his community.

Since establishing himself as one of the first orthodontists in Mission Viejo, Dr. Staples has had a commitment to provide his patients with the highest quality of orthodontic treatment in a supportive, caring way. He uses the latest technology along with proven orthodontic solutions and recommends them based on his patients’ individual needs. High-tech orthodontic systems can be seen in his use of self-ligating brackets, like the Damon System, Invisalign treatment, temporary anchorage devices, digital orthodontic systems, and more.

In addition to practicing orthodontics, Dr. Staples is the Program Director and tenured instructor for South Coast Dental Institute, a vocational school that is involved with dental education.
