New orthodontist practice opens in Rancho Santa Fe
Rancho Santa Fe Orthodontics will begin accepting new patients this month. The office is in the heart of Rancho Santa Fe at 5951 La Sendita, directly behind R. Roger Rowe School. The orthodontic practice is owned and operated by Dr. Natalie Lam, DMD, MMSc.
Dr. Lam launched Rancho Santa Fe Orthodontics with a neighborhood ice cream party March 24, welcoming approximately 100 guests of the Rancho Santa Fe community. The guests mixed and mingled with Dr. Lam and fellow members of the neighborhood on the practice’s outdoor terrace.
“Everyone has been so warm and welcoming. I am looking forward to being a part of the Rancho Santa Fe community,” said Dr. Lam. “My passion for orthodontics stems from my relationships with my patients. I believe in taking the time to understand each patient’s specific needs and providing customized orthodontic care based on those needs and desires.”
Dr. Lam earned her undergraduate degree from Duke University and Dental and Orthodontic degrees from Harvard University. She completed fellowships at Boston’s Children’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, and was an instructor for clinical orthodontic sessions at Harvard. Dr. Lam is an active member in several dental and orthodontic organizations on a national and local level, including the American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists, and the San Diego Academy of Orthodontists. She has been practicing orthodontics since 2003, including owning her own private practice in Arlington, VA, prior to relocating to Southern California.
Dr. Lam relocated to Rancho Santa Fe to be closer to her family. Her sister, brother-in-law, and nieces and nephew are longtime residents of the Rancho Santa Fe community.
Rancho Santa Fe Orthodontics provides an array of orthodontic services to both adults and children, including different types of cosmetic and traditional braces, Invisalign, and corrective jaw surgery. For more information and to make an appointment, visit
