No doubt you’ve heard of Vivian Chui. She is a prominent orthodontist in La Cañada who has treated a generation of children. I have observed her graceful movements as she meticulously applied her skills while treating my daughters: fastening, tightening and manipulating miniscule components of metal. Orthodontia is not only a science, it’s also an art.
Paying attention also is an art. Everything beckons us to perceive it and silently it murmurs, “Remember me.” So when I heard Dr. Chui remark, “Sabine! I’m over-the-moon happy at the progress you’re making,” I took note. There’s something special about someone who would use the expression, “Over-the-moon happy!”
Dr. Chui seems to possess a Zen-like quality as she relates the importance of personal responsibility for following a rigid therapeutic regimen to the overall psychosocial development of the individual.
