Dr. Donna Galante

Dr. Donna Galante has been a practicing Orthodontist for over 27 years.  A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, she received both her dental degree and Orthodontic Specialty certification at the Ivy League School.  While there, she received the Henry Goldman Award for Clinical Excellence and the Orthodontic Department Research Award.

For 8 years she was a part time clinical instructor in the Department of Orthodontics at the University of Pennsylvania and also started her first private practice in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. She was voted twice as the Instructor of the Year by the graduate students in the Orthodontic Department.

In 1993 she sold her practice and moved to California to get married and start her family.  Since that time she and her husband, Dr. Paul Cater, also an Orthodontist, have started 5 practices, bought 3 practices and sold 3 practices. They currently have 4 practice locations in Northern California.

Their practices are in the top 1% of revenue of all Orthodontic practices nationwide and have won several local awards such as “Best of the Best Orthodontists” from the readers of Placer Herald Newspapers in 2009, 2012 and 2013. Dr. Galante has been voted twice by her peers as a top Orthodontist in the Sacramento area (2011, 2012).

Besides her practice commitments, she has a separate coaching company that specializes in helping dentists and specialists succeed in their professional and personal lives. As a wife, practice owner, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, friend and business woman, she understands the demands that are placed on dentists who are juggling a multitude of commitments and responsibilities.

Her biggest thrill is when she has a client begin using her “millimeter approach” and they experience huge changes in their practice which ultimately lead to more happiness and fulfillment professionally and personally.

She is a highly sought out speaker and has co-authored several other books, Big Ideas for Your Business by America’s Premier Experts and Power Principles for Success which she co-authored with Brian Tracy.  She also wrote, Healthy and Beautiful at Any Age: Your Smile and Modern Orthodontics, which helps patients and parents understand all that orthodontics has to offer today.
