We have had three people in our family go through braces with Dr. Don. Aside from his attention for perfection he makes you feel so welcomed. I watch the way he interacts with the kids and the parents. I think it is so important the way he takes the time to explain to the kids exactly why he is doing what he is doing and what they can expect in all areas. He holds them accountable for taking care of their teeth. We have just loved our experience. Bitter sweet to be leaving soon.
Going on a year being a patient here, and it is one of the best decisions I have made. As an adult, looking for an orthodontist office was not the easiest—but going here makes it easy. I am always well taken care of from longer procedures to important basics...like making my next appointment. Most recently, they paused my treatment for several important life events & did so without hesitation which I am very appreciative of. Everyone is professional and combine that with the positive environment they create, it really feels like my Invisalign treatment is a priority.
We have finally finished our orthodontics with both kids! It was such a great experience working with Dr. Don and his amazing team. They are simply the best and we're so grateful we used them for our children's orthodontics. Their teeth look beautiful. Thank you for everything!!
Outstanding Dr. and very nice staff. Did a great job with my son and now doing a great job with my daughter. Very complicated case and seeing very good results. 5 STAR!
The best orthodontist practice in Novato. Great orthodontic care, great results. Great service, very accommodating and helpful, always.
Convenient location, staff is super nice, and professional treatment. Was never talked down to, always answered all questions and very easy experience.
The Damon System involves self-ligating braces that use modern technology to straighten teeth faster and with less discomfort. There’s no reason changing your smile should be uncomfortable!
Damon System Braces
In the past, braces were bulky and uncomfortable, required lots of visible metal bands around teeth, and required elastics to hold archwires in place. Elastics can cause friction, therefore moving teeth slowly and causing discomfort as they straighten your teeth. That was then… Today, materials and techniques initially created for use in outer space and in computers have changed the way Dr. Don will improve your smile. Dr. Don uses the Damon System, and he’s certified and experienced in the use of Damon braces. The Damon System’s advanced braces technology includes…
- Self-ligating Damon braces to eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties” that cause friction (Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwires so that teeth move freely, quickly, and comfortably.)
- Brackets that are small and discreet, so they’re less noticeable and more comfortable. Plus Damon braces are also available in clear brackets.
- A slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably. With no need for traditional elastic ties that attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment.
- Space-age, heat-activated, memory wires that were developed for use in the NASA space program. (The wire is called ‘memory wire’ because it returns to a pre-formed shape, which is how the wires move your teeth faster, with less force.)
Damon System braces provide…
- Extraordinary results
- Shorter treatment time
- Fewer adjustment appointments
- Greater comfort
- Reduced extractions
