After struggling with a 5 year journey in orthodontics as a child, Dr. Bernstein decided to become an orthodontist to help make orthodontic treatment a more rewarding and engaging adventure for patients.

At Bernstein Orthodontics, it is our mission to provide our patients with big, wide smiles in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.  Our orthodontic offices in Santa Rosa, Windsor and Petaluma utilize the most comfortable, efficient and advanced treatment options available to get our patients smiling faster than ever before! Our friendly, professional staff is with you every step of the way from your first visit to the exciting day you get your braces off.

We believe nothing should stand in the way of achieving a beautiful, confident smile, especially when it comes down to finances.  Our staff will work with you to find a payment option that fits best with your lifestyle and financial situation.

We invite you to come in and experience a new kind of orthodontic experience. You’ll find that we’re WILD about smiles!

Our Philosophy

We understand that choosing an orthodontist is a big decision. That’s why we want to share with you our treatment and team philosophies. We hope that by sharing our vision, mission and how and why we do the things we do, you will better understand the Bernstein Orthodontics brand and what makes us different.

Our treatment philosophy is what guides our practice and every decision we make. As a patient of Bernstein Orthodontics, you can rest assured that we have your very best interest at heart.

Fish coming out of the window
  • We believe in providing treatment ONLY when necessary and ONLY at the most opportune time to achieve the best results.
  • We believe most patients can be treated WITHOUT pulling teeth.
  • We believe in providing the most comfortable treatment which means no headgear or fixed palatal expanders.
  • We believe in efficient treatment which means fewer appointments (fewer absences at school/work) and shorter treatment times.

Our Mission

“To make a difference in the smiles we create, the lives we touch, and the communities we are privileged to serve.”
