Dr. Donna Galante


While Dr. Galante has a passion for helping her patients achieve the smile of their dreams, she is also passionate about helping other dentists and professionals achieve success while mastering balance in their lives. Additionally, she speaks and consults with doctors interested in learning how to use the Invisalign appliance with more efficiency, predictability, and success in their practices.

A board-certified orthodontist, writer, and teacher, Donna has been in private practice for over 30 years and has grown her practice to be one of the top 1 percent in revenue in the United States in that time. For over 20 years, she has practiced alongside her husband, with whom she owns four orthodontic specialty offices in Northern California. She is a member of the Keynote Speaker’s Collaborative and has been named one of America’s Premier Experts in orthodontics and Invisalign.

Dr. Galante graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, where she received both her dental degree and her specialty certification in orthodontics. She spent eight years as a clinical instructor at the University of Pennsylvania Department of Orthodontics, where she was voted Instructor of the Year twice. She and her husband have been interviewed by USA Today, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, and Sacramento’s FOX News 40.

She is currently a clinical instructor and faculty member for Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign, and has lectured to over 20,000 doctors and team members all over the world. Over the course of her career, she has started six practices from scratch, bought four existing practices, and sold three practices.
