Our specialist orthodontists
Husband and wife duo, Dr Paul Cater and Dr Donna Galante are experienced Invisalign practitioners. Their knowledge of orthodontic treatment means you'll get great results.
Dr Paul Cater
I have been an orthodontist since 1992 after graduating from the Ivy League School, University of Pennsylvania. My Doctor of Dental Study (DDS) was from the University of the Pacific in 1989.
While in Philadelphia I met my wife, Dr Donna Galante, and convinced her to move to California (where I was born and raised). It wasn’t easy, but she agreed and we have been in practice together ever since.
Braces have improved so much since I was in school and I enjoy the fact the we can help people of all ages achieve the smile and healthy bites they desire. There are so many options today regarding braces, including removable aligners like Invisalign, that even the busiest adult patients who travel can still have orthodontic treatment and get fabulous results.
Besides changing smiles and changing lives, I am the proud dad to two fantastic teenagers, Carina and Nate. I also enjoy everything related to new technology, golf, skiing, travel and taking my two labs to Folsom Lake for a hike and swim.
