Patient Testimonials

At 47, got braces for my lowers and Invisalign for my uppers ahead of a needed implant. She could not have been more delightful to work with. She now is working with my daughter and it's been pretty smooth sailing. My 13-year old daughter has a hard time with her doctor and her dentist, but the staff -- and Dr Powers -- have made this the least hard of the three. Worth every nickel. - Andrew L. on 3/9/2021

Dr Powers has run her office for 25+ years with efficiency and warmth. With her new office she has taken it to the next level. I have returned to her for my own orthodontic needs after utilizing her care for my 3, know grown kids. I would very much recommend her to anyone young or a bit older needing to address orthodontic needs. - Kathleen R. on 3/5/2021

I am not a patient of Dr. Power, but a general dentist who had the pleasure of meeting the Dr. a few weeks ago at her state-of-the-art clinic. Dr. Power not only showed me her practice (which is a statement of her vision and dedication to her patients) but also showed me how she incorporates the latest technology in the care of her patients. Although my visit to her practice was meant to just meet her, I didn’t expect it to turn into a learning experience. Although my practice is in San Jose, I will for sure refer my patients who need orthodontic treatment and live in the Walnut Creek region. - Edgar V. on 2/19/21

The staff is so incredibly friendly that my daughter enjoys coming. I am happy to have my daughter in such good hands. - Anonymous on 02/25/2021

Dr. Powers exam was very enlightning and thorough. She has good interpersonal skills. - Gregg C. on 01/13/2021

My daughter was disappointed that she got bright pink instead of light pink after the guy repeated twice that she wanted the light pink. - Mika G. on 01/13/2021

My son has broken wires on his braces several times and they are always more than accommodating in getting him in to get a repair. - Lazlo F. on 01/12/2021

I love this office -- using them for my second child. This one visit was a bit of a bummer as we were there in December and instead of rescheduling for six months, they did for 6 weeks and it was a big waste of time. They did give me a Starbucks card (and said it was their error), but hoping I don't get billed for both? This is very unusual for them - chalk it up to end of 2020... - Max T. 01/07/2021

Dr. Powers runs a dedicated and efficient office. The entire office is COVID-19 compliant. I never wait more than a few minutes to be seated in the exam chair. I always feel safe and extremely well cared for. I have the upmost confidence in Dr. Powers and her office. - Melanie S. on 01/05/2021

I highly recommend seeing Dr. Powers and her staff regarding ortho treatment. Everything was amazing from start to finish and her staff from assistants to front desk are equally amazing. My teeth look beyond anything I could have ever expected and I still get compliments on my teeth 5+ months after getting my braces removed. There’s no better place for ortho treatment than Smile Power Orthodontics. - Adrijana K. on 12/17/2020

Staff was incredibly friendly, warm and kind to me and my kiddos during our initial consultation.

I was very impressed with the entire office! From the phone calls leading up to the appointment, to our initial intake with Sarah, to our time with Dr. Powers, everyone was extremely professional and helpful. I really appreciated Dr. Powers advising us to contact Kaiser to learn more about jaw surgery. It was great that she looked at the big picture, and not what would have been the fastest and most lucrative for her. - Thomas T. on 6/13/2019

Everyone at the office was extremely friendly and I felt welcome.

This is my forever orthodontic home. I love all staff and Dr. Powers is truly a passionate expert in her field. She is constantly improving and updating her education and it shows. I am wearing my mouth guard as I type this haha! My future children will be a part of this ortho family if their teeth need it. I would not be able to go anywhere else. - Kylee K. on 01/13/2019

Dr. Powers and her staff are excellent! She is truly dedicated to her patients' full dental health, as many underlying issues can get in the way of proper treatment. I like that she asked about sleep apnea, and she is able to detect any underlying issues that might impact full treatment. - Lili L. on 01/10/2019

I have been very pleased with the staff & dr powers. I am an adult Invisalign patient. Would definitely recommend a consult if you are thinking about it. Dr powers is smart & approachable & her staff is GREAT! - Anonymous on 01/04/2019

From the moment you walk in the office, you are greeted with a friendly receptionist. There are plenty of seats in the waiting area and many toys for children to be distracted with. This office even has a Galaga Arcade system. Way to step it up guys. You are taken in the back where there are about 6 dental chairs without a partition which gives you a community type of vibe (just like sitting at a huge table at a restaurant and you're sharing the same eating space with them). There is one tv that always plays Disney/Pixar movies, from Lion King to Rio while you wait for your turn to get examined by the tech or Dr.Powers. Overall the time spent at the orthodontist isn't too bad since you've got a comfortable and friendly environment to spend time in. - Melissa B. on 01/03/2019

They explained my options very clearly and made recommendations from which I could make a decision. - Anonymous on 12/22/2018

Great - very organized and explained everything in detail. - Carol B. on 11/29/2018

The appointment was very informative and thorough. I didn't know much about Invisalign before I went but understood the process and how it would specifically apply to me before I was done. The staff was very professional and courteous and the office was obviously run very well and with great efficiency. I was very satisfied with the knowledge I gained and exactly what to expect should I decide to move forward. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Powers, especially her long involvement in the development of improved orthodontics. - Julia F. on 11/25/2018

Staff and Dr. Powers made my son very comfortable in his first visit. This helps A LOT with my son being anxious going to the dentist. I love that Dr. Powers explained my options for my son in a detailed manner but not overwhelming, she took time answering all of my questions. I am happy with this visit! - Samuel A. on 11/21/2018

Dr. Powers and her staff do some amazing work. Fortunately I only needed some small movements of my teeth to accommodate some new front crowns. She has pictures on her office wall of truly miraculous transformations of badly out of place teeth into beautiful smiles! She and her staff treat every patient with upmost care and respect in a friendly atmosphere. I thought the cost of my care was reasonable. I highly recommend anyone needing orthodontic care see Smile Power. - Jack C. on 08/23/2018

I really appreciate how friendly and professional you all are. My daughter and I are sad the visits are so few now.

Timely, friendly, efficient, professional, competent...could not ask for more! - Barbara W. on 07/04/2018

We have always seen literature in the mail from Dr. Powers so we felt comfortable knowing she was a trusted neighborhood Orthodontist. We scheduled a consult for my daughter and after having 2 other not great ortho experiences, met with Dr. Powers and her staff. Needless to say it was a wonderful experience from start to finish and my daughter is now scheduled for braces!

Incredible staff! - Gabriella A. on 06/13/2018

Efficient, professional, kind friendly staff. Because of my situation I was seeking opinions by other orthodontist. I found myself happily returning here. Dr. Powers and team provided care for my eldest son previously, and his case came out phenomenal. I am returning back to have her work her magic for my twins that are are 11. I couldn't be happier and relieved. I appreciated their consideration to have Kleenex boxes at each counter corner along with sanitizer as I am fighting this nasty virus. Dr. Powers is always so sweet and love the fact that she is soooo good at what she does- very matter-a-fact, simple (for her) and concise! What a peace of mind! To anyone searching--- (I am in the dental field)-I think it helps to know great providers--- We are lucky to have her. Thank you! Michelle - Bellisima G. on 06/11/2018

The people there were kind and helpful. However there were times where I felt like the employees working on my teeth would turn away and talk amongst themselves. It was not much of a problem and did not happen frequently at all, but when it did it was a little discomforting. - Neil O. on 03/30/2018

Dr. Powers is the bomb. Easy with my kid and I appreciate her manner with her staff, always trying to teach them the “hows” and “whys” of what she does. In a lot of years of seeing a lot of doctors and dentists for me and my family, she's really one of the best. - Anonymous on 01/19/2018

Dr. Powers and her staff were outstanding in every way. Dr. Powers is not only a very skilled orthodontist, judging from my results, but also an excellent business woman (my background is in finance and accounting). I met one of her staff, coincidentally, in another setting and it was clear her staff enjoy working for her. Dr. Powers provides them with good benefits. This makes her practice efficient and benefits her clients. I chose to pay for her services in advance to avoid finance charges and there were time limits in her written agreement. I had other medical issues that extended the time of my treatment and yet I was never asked for additional amounts. I give Smile Power my most enthusiastic recommendation! - Jack C. on 01/16/2018
