Parent’s Point of View
Kubo legacy - multi generations family of orthodontists - multi generations patients
Legacy. According to the Cambridge dictionary, legacy is defined as something that is a part of your history or that remains from an earlier time. When we first began to research Orthodontic care; the staff at Kubo Orthodontics impressed us. From the very first interaction, to our first appointment it was definitely the people who went above and beyond.
There was a professionalism that was superior. There was consistency in high standards. There was efficiency. Each person knew their role and did their job with excellence; from scheduling, to dental assisting, to finances; the standard was high. Exceptionalism is rare.
Over a few conversations, I discovered the Kubo family legacy. The Kubo’s had a distinctively respected past, a history dating back to the beginning in 1949. It was then, that Kubo Orthodontics was born and Jim and Bob have carried the traditions that their father established.
Over 70 years of family legacy. This is something special; a father establishing a well-respected orthodontist practice in the 1940’s and his two sons carrying on his legacy in 2020 and going forward.
While waiting on the bench for my daughter, a mother began to tell me how she was a patient many years ago and she is now bringing her two sons in for orthodontic care. Multi generation of doctors; and multi generation of patients. This is the Kubo legacy. Over 70 years of healthcare and contributions to the Central Valley.
Experience and excellence is a must when it comes to healthcare. Assurance and confidence in treatment is what we all desire. 70+ years of consistency is impressive. I thought I was just getting straight teeth; but it is much more than that. It is knowing that there are great people doing great things for us and the next generation.
As parents, we have a responsibility to surround our children by the finest. And if multiple generations of families have relied on the Kubo’s for over 70 years, that is essential evidence. It demonstrates high standards and consistency.
A legacy is established by the great people within it; and when you know you are surrounded by good people, there is a palpable feeling of reassurance.
The industry of orthodontic care has changed over the past 70 years; and as technology continues to shift, methods and treatment plans will evolve.
Orthodontic care has changed, but have people changed over the past century?
70 years ago a great person was a great person. And 70 years from now, a great person will be a great person.
Over 70 years of exemplary service is rare. Over 70 years of great people is even more rare.

Teenager’s Point of View
Most un-chaotic place. Good Vibes. Good People.
This appointment was more of a fun one for me. It was the first time I was going to get bands on my teeth. We went in the morning this time because we planned this appointment well in advance. I couldn’t wait for something new to happen to my teeth.
We arrived and walked in. Everything seemed familiar like this was the hundredth time I’ve done it. I walked in, signed in, and sat down. I always love the choice of music. The one thing I really like about the rooms, is the people inside never fail to make you feel comfortable.
I feel like the vibes are always really good when you come in. I think that it is the most un-chaotic place; it’s just quiet and peaceful. They called us back and it was really quick. We headed back and I sat down, waiting to be called to my seat.
They eventually called and had me sit in one chair and my mom right next to me. I couldn’t hold my excitement anymore. I just wanted to know what bands felt like. I feel like I had many stories about people hating bands and how tight they were, but the weird thing was I was more excited than I was dreading it.
They had me lay back and check if I had any brackets missing. They saw I did not, so they continued with the procedure. Dr. Kubo came and started adding these metal things to my teeth that would hold the band. He explained all the steps to me and why they were needed. He put them on my teeth and it was nothing like I was expecting. It was not tight at all. I just felt the bands in my mouth but I didn’t feel the tightness like everyone tells me about.
I looked in the mirror and I could barely see them because they were clear. After Dr. Kubo left to go work on my mom, the lady explained that my teeth might feel a little tender after and I can eat whatever but just be careful. She gave me a bag of bands and told me to change them every now and then to keep the tightness intact.
Then I grabbed my stuff while my mom was finishing up. We went back to the front desk ladies after saying goodbye to Dr. Kubo. They were nice, as always; then we walked out. When I got to school, no one noticed I had bands; I had to point it out to them. After a while, my teeth were a little tender; but I knew it was all worth it in the end.
