You Deserve a Truly VIP Experience

Every child deserves to feel like a million bucks — and to know that they can achieve all their dreams. We believe that confidence starts with a healthy smile.

But for us, it’s not just about straightening teeth. We put a lot of thought into how we can make orthodontic treatment a special experience for both our patients and their parents. That’s why we always go the extra mile. So whether that means sending the Brace Bus to pick up kids for their appointments or offering free retainers for life, we want you to feel genuinely cared for.

When you choose Smiles by the Bay, we know you will love your smile. And you’ll also have a truly customized experience that you just can’t get anywhere else.

Retainers for Life

Dr. Mary Trahar-Thomas

"I have always been inspired by Maya Angelou’s beautiful words: "People are always going to forget what you said. People are always going to forget what you did. But people are never going to forget how you make them feel."

And that’s been my goal since I opened my first practice 15 years ago. I want to make people feel like they are always welcome from the moment they walk in the door."
