Dr. Donna Galante

“I am an orthodontist because I love seeing the daily transformations that occur not only in people’s smiles, but their entire personality changes too. I am particularly passionate about clear aligner treatment because I find it to me a more compassionate way to help people improve their smile, their bite and their overall wellness…”

“…Furthermore, I believe many people would not even show up at our offices if we only had the option of braces. Being an orthodontist also has given the gift of helping my fellow colleagues learn how to use the Invisalign system for their patients and achieve predictable,efficient and profitable results for their practices.”

Dr. Galante has been in private practice as an orthodontist for over 30 years. She and her husband currently own 3 orthodontic specialty offices in Northern California where they treat 77% of their patients with Invisalign.

For 8 years she was a clinical instructor at the University of Pennsylvania Department of Orthodontics’ where she was twice voted “Instructor of the Year.”
She is currently a clinical instructor and faculty member for Align Technology and has lectured nationally and internationally to over 10,000 doctors and their teams.

Dr. Galante has also written several books, including All About Millimeters: How Small Changes Can Make a Big Impact in Your Business and Your Life. She loves cooking and theater, and has a passion for vegan food. She is the mother of 2 young adults, Carina (age 22) and Nate (age 20).
