Professor Dr. Maria Orellana

Professor Dr. Maria Orellana has discovered the benefits of Invisalign while she was working on her PhD thesis 'The Biology of Tooth Movement' early 2001 and has since then been an active advocate of clear aligners.
She was one of the first Professors ever at the UCSF (University of California San Francisco) to teach her Orthodontic students about Invisalign.

She strongly believes that with the right education and experience, clear aligners could give the doctors the same predictable outcomes as with any other orthodontic system.

She is now bringing all her knowledge to your door steps. Let Maria and her team support your clear aligner journey.
