Accessible Orthodontics for Every Patient

Accessibility is often something that is overlooked; however, accessibility can make a big difference for patients, especially those with disabilities. We want to make sure that all of our patients can easily access our office for appointments and consultations.

At Wu Orthodontics we have taken special measures to make sure our practice is completely up to code with the ADA’s accessibility requirements. To start, we have two ADA compliant restrooms, and one with a sanitary diaper changing station. All of our door handles and door locks have lever arms and are easy to open for all our patients. We have a full size elevator that provides accessible transportation between the first floor and second floor of our office.

Parking can be a challenge in our area so we provide eight dedicated parking spaces including one handicap space. Patients are able to easily enter our building without going up stairs. We also have a convenient bike rack where patients riding a bike to their appointment can lock their bikes while visiting our office.

In addition to our accessibility features, our office is set-up with a state-of-the-art security and fire alarm system. We welcome every patient to our safe, fully accessible office!

If you would like to find out more about patient accessibility at our practice, or have any questions, please contact us at 650-646-3999.
