Our mission at Kare Orthodontics is promoting dental health by providing the highest quality of care. What I enjoy the most is offering patients a smile they can be proud of.

Its not unusual for us to treat an entire family, sometimes one after the other and sometimes simultaneously. Once parents see the beautiful results and the boost in self-esteem from their children after braces are off, they become excited about starting treatment for themselves. Orthodontic treatment is a change for the better, regardless of your age. The biological process involved in tooth movement is the same in both adults and children. In many cases we can achieve very dramatic facial changes with adult orthodontics. Braces will NOT interfere with your lifestyle. You can do anything with braces sing, play musical instruments, dine out, kiss, and have your picture taken.There are a few inconveniences, but you will adjust quickly. Certain treats, such as caramels and peanut brittle, will be off limits. Also, your mouth and teeth may be a little tender after adjustments. The good news is that the new techniques and materials used by our doctors greatlyreduce the discomfort of wearing braces and also decrease the frequency of office visits and overall treatment time. KareOrthodontics is also sensitive to adults busy schedules.

Creating the most beautiful smiles is what we are about. There is no reason why our adult patients should not also experience this excitement. No, you are never too old to be your best, especially here at KareOrthodontics!

Dr. Ehsan Karimian is the best orthodontist in the bay area. I have been under his care for the last 4+ years and I would give him an A+++. This is the honest opinion of the Professor of Neurosciences I happen to be. Enjoy the experience. No regrets only gratitude towards this brilliant dentist and human at every level! Try him as soon as you can if you care about your health. Amazing!

I had braces for about 4 years and the whole time I was seen by Dr.Griffin. Such a friendly and kind dentist. At the time my braces were coming off they brought in Dr.K and this is where the dentist office took a turn for the worst. From the moment I got my braces off and was given retainers I was assigned to Dr.K who would make my experience there just terrible. Every appointment with Dr.K would consist of me going to the office and waiting 10-15 minutes just to sit in the chair for what felt like seconds. He would merely look at my teeth sometimes just at a glance and then walk out telling the dental assistant I could make another appointment for 6-8 weeks from then after barely looking at my teeth. His appointments made me feel as if my money was just all he was after. After I finished payment of my braces that's when I would only be seen for maximum 5 minutes per appointment. Things were much different when Dr.Griffin was in charge and had the help of Dr.Carol. They actually took the time to explain everything to you and be there during the whole process. There's many Orthodontists around the Bay Area who take better care of their patients. Please reconsider going somewhere else do your research and find another Orthodontist someone who actually cares about their patients!!!

Dr Karimian is competent and compassionate, he took the time to come over the weekend one time to help with my braces issue. My other siblings had Tx here and they all love the office . I ve been referring and will refer friends and family here wo hesitation.

*MUST READ!* Review is important. I took my son here to get treatment. They said it was 2 phases. They charged me almost 5,000 dollars for phase 1 and his teeth were not improved whatsoever. I went to a different orthodontist to receive treatment for phase 2 and it was so much cheaper and higher quality service. The new orthodontist also gave me a discount based on the severity of my son's case. The new orthodontist notified me that there was not 2 phases needed. The orthodontist at the new office takes his time on patients and listens to concerns. Please find another orthodontist in Marin. Bad experiences here! They do not take his time on patients and do not care to do so. He saw my son for 2 SECONDS AND THEN MOVED ON TO NEXT PATIENT. They are also closed every other Friday, it makes it inconvenient for families who work!!!!! A lot of money for what!? What a waste. Worst experience ever. I wasted almost 5K on my son's teeth. This office needs a new different and professional doctor. The new reviews incoming are not accurate to the service my son received. I recommend you look on Marin Ij's best orthodontist voted for the year and go there! There are also tons of orthodontist in the East Bay and San Francisco, you have tons of options. I do not want anything in return from this orthodontist . I do not need any compensation. I am simply writing this to alert other folks. By the way the pictures he has on google are NOT the office pictures! That used to be the old office. Very misleading to patients. Be aware. 1 STAR!

This team truly does care. My Invisalign treatment left my teeth perfectly straight. My daughter had braces and her smile is beautiful. My son is next! They are kind, fast, and good at what they do. They are also very flexible with payments.

I am so happy to have gone through Invisalign with Dr. Karimian ! My teeth look and feel amazing! I had a gap in between my top front teeth and some bite issues . He fixed my issues and made my teeth look perfect . I love smiling and feeling confident with my new smile . Dr. Karimian took the time to exam my mouth throughly and answered all my questions every time I saw him . His assistant Heather is wonderful , she is so kind and gentle . This whole process was smooth and easy . The front desk staff is amazing as well . Everyone was professional, kind and knowledgeable!

I really appreciate all of the detail Dr.k puts into my treatment. He answers all my questions and is patient with me as I do get a little nervous at the dentist. The staff is wonderful as well! They get pretty busy but they always spend the necessary time to make certain everything is done correct.

(Translated by Google) I started my treatment with Dr. Karimian 4 years ago and all I can say is THANK YOU! I've had an amazing journey with my treatment even when the pandemic had started. I have always felt so insecure about my smile but now with my treatment ending, I have the confidence to smile a lot more now! He has such an amazing team who I had help and met with through all of my appointments. If I were to recommend who to go to for orthodontic care, I would 100% say Kare Orthodontics! Thank you Dr. K!

Siempre me he sentido tan inseguro acerca de mi sonrisa, pero ahora que mi tratamiento termino, !tengo la confianza para sonreir mucho mas ahora! Tiene un equipo increible con el que tuve ayuda y con el que me reuni durante todas mis citas. Si tuviera que recomendar a quien acudir para recibir atencion de ortodoncia, !diria 100% Kare Orthodontics! Gracias Dr. K!

If you're going to read any review read this one!!! If you value your time whatsoever, do not go here. For a 5-10 minute appointment, you could be waiting there for 20-45 minutes on a good day. There are countless orthodontics in the area and any one would be better than this one.
