"I wanted to express my sincere appreciation and thanks for the fine work you and your team did making my smile beautiful again using  the Invisalign system.  As you know, I came to you with a high degree of apprehension about dentistry and orthodontics.  Not only did you and your fine staff manage to make me entirely comfortable with the process, I found it touching on many occasions that you always seemed to be in sync with my concerns.  I was so pleased when less than a year later, I could fully smile and be confident in the appearance of my teeth.  It has made a dramatic and positive change in my life."

"I have had outstanding care and have seen fantastic results, despite my difficult orthodontic case.  Dr. Tavarez has always been available, accommodating when appointments needed to be changed and best of all... has not deviated from her original price.  She has been very diligent with getting my teeth corrected and has managed to do so in a small amount of time.  I  would recomment her to my BFF and trust her so much to have my kids orthodontia done with her if they should require it."

"I interviewed 6 different orthodontists prior to choosing Dr. Tavarez.  She and her staff are responsive, professional and fantastic with kids and adults alike.  I can't say enough good things about Dr. Tavarez and her organization."
-Karen P.


"There are not enough positive words to describe Dr. Kathleen Tavarez and the excellent orthodontic treatment I received under her care. Without a doubt she was very responsive to my unique adult orthodontic needs.  She worked collaboratively with both my dentist and periodontist.  I would recommend Dr. Tavarez without any reservations."

"Daniel got his braces off this week! I wanted to express our thanks for the FABULOUS work you do!!! All three of our kids have the gift of your expertise.  The kids smile along with your work has created an amazing outcome! (and we do have enough comparisons through the years to say- your work is truly #1 top notch!)"

"I'm seeing Dr. Tavarez and I believe she is an excellent orthodontist (I used to be in the dental field for over 20+ years).  I'm seeing her for the lower teeth alignment prior to getting implants. She is knowledgeable, professional, honest and not pushy.  She takes the time to assess the next steps for the movement of your teeth.  Her staff is absolutely fantastic and this is also what makes a practice thrive.  They are caring, sensitive and always treat you with a smile."

"Thank you so much for coming into your office late on Sunday night to remove Benji's tongue from his braces! You saved us hours in ER wait time and ER charges.  And you were able to create and expert solution without causing him any pain! Our deepest gratitude!"

"I love Dr. Tavarez and the work that she did on my teeth!  I work in San Francisco and live in San Jose.  Scheduling an appointment can be a bit problematic for me, BUT they were so accommodating- they worked around my schedule most of the time.  I am so grateful for that!  They estimated I had to wear my braces for 22-24 months, but they came off much sooner. Yay!  The staff have been friendly to me since day one. Thank you Dr. Tavarez!"  
-Lina S.


"We were looking for an orthodontist for my 15 year old son.  We are so happy with Dr. Tavarez and her staff.  Our appointments have been on time, the staff are patient and loving and they work so hard to make the patient feel comfortable.  I would recommend them in a heartbeat!"

"Dr. Tavarez I want to thank you personally for all the great care and professionalism you showed me during my recent orthodontic treatment.  I  could not be happier with the results and am proud to call you my orthodontist! Thank you for your brilliance and expertise!"  
-Suzanne K.


"What a wonderful, professional, efficent and friendly office environment you have!  The staff we met personally or talked to over the phone have been incredibly helpful, attentive and upbeat.  Most of my communication has been with Ana, who is a superb commuicator and makes us feel so at ease.  And she has all the answeres, or if not, she will very quickly.  This is a reflection on you, Dr. Tavarez.  I appreciate your obvious passion, professionalism, and your caring "chair side" manner.  It just doesn't get any better!"  
-Jonn W.


"Never in my imagination did I expect to be wearing braces-ever.  However, when braces became my reality I was so glad it was with Tavarez Orthodontics. The change in my teeth is amazing.  I delight in comparing my mouth now to my before pictures.  You never failed to greet me with smiles at my appointments, answered all my questions, and somehow managed to accomodate my very inflexible teaching day (and even my travels).  I am truly sorry my more regular appointments are nearing an end.  I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for me."  
-Maria M.


"Everybody at Dr. Tavarez' is just wonderful.  Every time I go to Dr. Tavarez' office I always feel welcome and that is why I like going. Thank you so much."  
-Melissa S.


"Thank you for getting me through the last 11 months.  Great experience and a much satisfied patient."  
-Ellen H.


"Both my daughters are patients of Dr. Tavarez and we all love going to the orthodontist on appointment day! The staff is extremely professional, yet friendly and fun, and from the second visit on they remembered both me and my daughter. I like that you never have to wait to be seen, my child usually goes back within 5 minutes of arriving, and the waiting room is cozy and well stocked with a variety of magazines and orthodontic literature. There is a big screen TV to watch and Internet connection should you need to work. I am always comfortable waiting for my child.  I like that Dr. Tavarez and/or the technician give you a detailed report at each visit, and they support the report with photos and digital video of how the teeth are progressing. My friend recommended this practice and now I've recommended it to two friends and we are all pleased with the service and (so far) the outcome. As soon as they knew I recommended them to our friends, I received a lovely Thank You by way of a coffee gift card. As a last note we moved from another state in the middle of my oldest child’s orthodontic treatment. We loved our orthodontist where we came from and were totally prepared to be disappointed, but I'm happy to say we were very pleasantly surprised. The last place had tons of bells and whistles, but the total package here (office, staff AND Dr.) make this place outstanding."
