Bridget Powers, D.D.S., M.S.

Dr. Bridget Powers, Orthodontic Specialist, has served Walnut Creek and the Greater Bay Area since 1999 treating children, teens and adults. Before entering private practice in 1999, Dr. Powers was the sole research orthodontist at the then startup company Invisalign. The newly completed Smile Power building was developed taking into account Dr. Powers' 24 years of orthodontic experience. State of the Art 3D X-Ray technology, scanning technology, outcome modeling software, Invisalign, clear braces, traditional braces placed on the interior or exterior of the teeth, and accelerated treatment options are available to all patients. Finally, the new location is spacious enough to accommodate all local social distancing guidelines.

Many people who received care here as a child are now bringing their families for orthodontic care. Dr. Powers has been helping Bay Area families achieve their goals of a healthy, attractive smile for over 25 years.

Educational Background

sealDr. Powers received a Master’s degree and advanced orthodontic training at Northwestern University in Chicago. She received her dental degree from University of the Pacific in San Francisco, and she also attended local schools Diablo Valley College and University of California, Berkeley.

While the orthodontic profession has been established for over 100 years, Invisalign® is a technology that has entered the field of orthodontics just within the last decade. Computer technology has been applied to orthodontics in place of or in conjunction with traditional braces. In the initial stages of the device, Dr. Powers worked with the innovators of Invisalign® to advance the product development and set up clinical testing sites at universities in the United States.

Dr. Powers is now a Platinum Provider of Invisalign® services in the Walnut Creek area.
