Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Amy T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Quinn and his team are amazing! I am extremely happy with the quality of care that I have received from Dr Quinn.  I have been contemplating getting braces for years. There were some things about my teeth that have been bothering me, but after having braces twice as a teenager, I was hesitant to get them again. However, as a patient coordinator for a Craniofacial surgeon, we have the pleasure of working alongside Dr. Quinn and his team. Seeing first hand the extraordinary care and amazing results our patients receive from his office had me reconsidering Orthodontic treatment.  I have since started my treatment and am very pleased!  His team are all amazing. I’ve had the pleasure of  working with Ann, Sophia, Susan, Heather, Lena, Seerat, Ruth and Margie.. Everyone there is wonderful and a complete pleasure to work with.  Thank you Dr Quinn and team.

Dr Quinn runs his small business as well as any one I have met in my 3 decades of working in SF. This is my 2nd review because I needed my retainers replaced. I asked for same day service as I was passing thru SF for one day only. Every one on the team was friendly and well trained. I received the retainer after lunch! Any patient enrolled with Dr. Quinn is sure to have a good experience from sincere people.

Dr. Quinn, his wonderful staff and technicians are thorough and precise in orthopedics. I chose traditional braces over invisalign which were in place approx. 15 months. Last week, the braces were removed and my teeth look great! My next step is teeth whitening and modifications to a couple of teeth with my regular dentist (see photo). Thank you Dr. Quinn, Cathy, Sophia and all the Technicians for your amazing help!

The staff is always so pleasant. I love the location because I can walk from school there. I am generally seen right away, so I can make it to swim practice on time. One time my band popped off, and my mom took me to Dr. Quinn’s office without an appointment. They were able to squeeze me in between patients. I was very relieved because I had just gotten my braces put in a couple days before. Whenever my friends tell me they need to get braces, I always recommend them to see Dr. Quinn.

We went to Dr. Quinn on a recommendation for my daughter’s braces. They are now off, but the entire experience was wonderful, from the initial meet/greet meeting right up to the continued follow up visits. The office runs with the precision one would hope for from any medical professional. Something to be modeled for sure. The people are great, friendly and polite. Already have and will continue to recommend him and his staff.

A. B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


My recent experience with Dr. Quinn and his staff was about as good as it gets. Between his own experience and professionalism and the quality of the support staff he has assembled, the office delivers a level of service that is as smooth and precise as a fine timepiece. Dr. Quinn treated me as part of a team that also included a periodontist and a prosthodontist. He coordinated well with his colleagues and went out of his way to make a complicated process as easy for me as possible. He not only delivered the results promised, but volunteered more than once to resolve minor dental problems (unrelated to his work) that would otherwise have sent me to a dentist. His approach was always practical, straight-forward and down-to-earth and steadfastly oriented towards doing what was best for this patient.

E. R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Why I chose Dr. Quinn to take care of my teeth? Well, to start with, he invested (meaning no charge) in me several hours before I even decided to become his client. All the way through those hours I felt respected, given time and space to make my decision. It also felt like any decision of mine will be fine with him. Dr. Quinn covered with me not only the orthodontist part of “making my smile more beautiful” process, he also explained what other things will need to be done. Fast forward a year and a half, I am happy with my choice of orthodontist. Everyone in the office is professional and friendly; and my teeth make a great progress!

Dr. Quinn and his staff have made having braces again extremely tolerable. From my initial consultation with Dr. Quinn, he and his staff have ensured that I felt great about my decision to get braces again – even though I originally did not want to metal braces, but rather Invisalign. Even though Dr. Quinn’s office is high tech, it does not lack in customer service. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and professional. Talk about service with a (nice) smile. The scheduling is very accommodating. Everyone is very knowledgeable and ready to assist you in any way they can. I would recommend Dr. Quinn to anyone who is looking for a great orthodontist.

Dr. Quinn and his staff are amazing. Period. They house the best staff, beautiful facilities and Dr. Quinn is one the most credible professionals I know. His demeanor and bedside manner will put any anxious patient at ease (I know, because I am one!). As an adult who was hesitant to get braces for many years, I can confidently claim Dr. Quinn as the reason why I went ahead with my decision to get braces. And I am so glad I did – the experience has been nothing short of perfection. I am about halfway through my treatment and progressing beautifully. The incredible view of SF from the patient chair also makes every visit that much more enjoyable. 🙂 Thank you to Dr. Quinn and his staff for being the best team to work with!

Evan S. from Davis, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Quinn and his staff are as friendly, professional, and kind as it gets.  I came into Dr. Quinn’s office after seeing multiple other orthodontists.  I had a very complicated case, with an enormous amount of work to be done.  From the beginning, Dr. Quinn took a long, detailed look and formulated a personalized treatment plan for me.  Over the next months, he and his wonderful staff performed that treatment.  My teeth and smile were transformed from a wasteland into a great smile.  The staff was so kind and friendly, and the treatment so professional.  A bonus is the great view from the office! Just a world-class orthodontic experience.

Tatiana S. from Alameda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thanks Dr. Quinn and his wonderful staff for such a great experience with my braces. Every appointment I attended I was welcomed in the office by a very friendly and smiley staff. I loved that! I highly recommend Dr. Quinn’s practice to anybody who needs orthodontic services. The office environment is cozy and clean with lots of windows overlooking the heart of beautiful downtown San Francisco. Ah, one more thing. Dr. Quinn’s practice is very fluid and efficient. You show up, check in and they call you right around the time your appointment actually is. This was a very pleasant surprise. Be on time and you are good!

Dr. Quinn was referred to me by Dr. Kenneth Freeman about 6.5 years ago. From your first evaluation to removal of my hardware the complete experience was top notch. It is abundantly clear that Dr. Quinn knows his stuff and takes time to understand your situation. His staff there are excellent, professional, and efficient. On the admin side there was never any issues with insurance and FSA documentation was a snap which is always nice. It has been 5 years now since I had my gear removed and my bite is still lovely. Great work. I would highly recommend Dr. Quinn. Of course you can’t beat the view while you are waiting as well…

Piyali B. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Excellent as always! Such a pleasure to see staff and their joyful faces. There was all sorts of excellent safety measures. Dr. Quinn is excellent, caring, kind and quick. All my appointments here are some of the BEST medical experiences I have ever had in my life.

Ken Schramm-Daigle (Source: Yelp)


I was refereed to Dr. Quinn, by my dentist because my bottom teeth had shifted. As an adult the idea reliving by braces experience was not a pleasant thought. However from the moment I entered Dr. Quinn’s office I was put at ease. The intake and examination process, was completely comfortable and private. I felt I could ask anything and receive an honest answer. The financing was discussed clearly and professionally and I was given all the time i needed to make my decisions. Once we started the process, the office works so well, my appointments are always on time and professional and as well because fof the great staff, I am glad to say my braces are coming off this Monday, right on schedule. If you are considering orthodontic work, I highly recommend Dr. Quinn!

Rachel W. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone is so caring and good at their jobs. It’s clear they want the best outcome for everyone. My dental situation is complicated, and they gave me all the options and the pros/cons of each choice. The billing was transparent and it didn’t seem like they wanted to upsell me. Dr. Quinn worked together with the oral surgeon to make sure everything would be progressively better for me, and never worse!

Susan Detwiler (Source: Google)


When my daughter was 7, she had shark teeth – her permanent teeth came in overlapping each other! I freaked out. Luckily my neighbor was an oral surgeon who referred us to Dr. Quinn, assuring us that he was the best in the business. After a couple years with a retainer for spreading out her teeth, and a couple years of braces, my daughter has a beautiful smile! Dr Quinn’s office staff are always friendly and helpful. And the website & text reminders for appointments make it easy to keep track of appointments. All around a great experience!

Dr. Quinn and his staff took the time to walk me through all of my treatment options. In the end, we chose a conservative course, and I’m happy with that decision. Because my treatment plan could have gone in any of several directions, I wanted a very experienced orthodontist who was also up to date on newer techniques. I definitely feel I got this from Dr. Quinn. From the front desk, to the technicians, to the back office, to my treatment by Dr. Quinn, I had a consistently positive experience.

Heather Holladay (Source: Google)


Dr. Quinn’s office has been very responsive and helpful every step of the way through my orthodontic treatment. They presented all available options to me along with the medical reasons and pros/cons of each option. Payment options are available, the staff are friendly and competent, and Dr. Quinn is very knowledgeable and professional. I’ve been very pleased with my progress and would definitely recommend Dr. Quinn’s office for anyone in need of orthodontic treatment

Dr Quinn & his staff are so kind, courteous & professional. I found Dr Quinn for his expertise with adult, Damon braces as I was needing to extract/move my impacted canines. I felt the price for the procedure were reasonable given the complexity & the market. Check-up appointments were quick & smooth. Even when I had a rogue wire, getting a quick visit in was no problem. Their office has handled COVID very well, taking temp checks of everyone before each visit & using appropriate PPE. I had to move out of the Bay Area due to COVID so I wasn’t able to complete my orthodontic work with Dr Quinn but I am super happy with the results he achieved (my new orthodontist was impressed as well). I’m very grateful for everything Dr Quinn & his team have done to make this process smooth & painless as possible. Thank you for my giving me my best smile!

Emilio S. from South San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve finally “graduated” and i’m so happy with how my teeth look.  At first I did not even want braces, my mom brought me in after hearing great things about this office. Now i’m glad she did. Even when I wasn’t good wearing my bands, ate something I wasn’t supposed to and my brackets came off, and now forgetting to wear my retainer now as often as I should, they were always very nice and able to get me in for an appointment. I no longer have an overbite, or crooked teeth, and smile bigger than ever. Thank you to everyone at this office, Dr. Quinn, Margie, and i’m sorry I cannot think of everyone else’s name right now.

I currently see four dental professionals located at 450 Sutter, including Dr. Quinn, on a regular basis. In the last nine months, I have had to visit at least one of them every three to four weeks, so I am, unfortunately, very familiar with dental office staff and procedures. Having said that, I can honestly say Dr. Quinn and his staff are the MOST organized I have encountered. My other doctors are great also, but Dr. Quinn’s office is a well-oiled machine, and the automated e-mail reminders and computer check-in further enhance their services. I love my new smile and would recommend Dr. Quinn to anyone in a heartbeat.

Steaven C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


When I first started treatment with Dr. Quinn almost 18 months ago, I was impressed with the level of professionalism in his practice. He and his staff, including the dental technicians and support staff, are efficient, knowledgeable, and courteous. With each subsequent visit, I’ve felt confident that I have been receiving outstanding treatment and feel very fortunate that I am able to have my orthodontic work performed in Dr. Quinn’s practice. Appointments are easy to make, the staff is professional and friendly, wait times are short, and the whole process for the last 18 months has been easy. I am very excited to see the final results.

Tatiana Stollman (Source: Google)


I highly recommend Dr. Quinn’s services. His staff just ROCKS! They are always on time, they always have a smile on their face, and they really help you scheduling appointments that fit your busy life. Really. I was very pleased from beginning to end with the treatment I received and, best of all, how my teeth look now. The sunny warm light and the great views of the city you get on each visit are treats to the soul! Go check it out. They are awesome!!

Ekaterina Guseva (Source: Google)


Dr Quinn is very kind and professional. He will always listen to you and answer all your questions and concerns. His colleagues are also very nice and professional. I’ve been going to this clinic for almost 2 years now and now I’m at the end of my treatment. Can’t wait to see my “new” smile! Dr. Quinn is truly great with both adults and kids. Highly recommended.

Stephanie M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone here is amazing. This is my new place for dental emergencies – like when I needed an immediate fix to my permanent retainer. They had no problems fitting me in, and weren’t concerned that I didn’t have my dental records – just needed their simple 1st time patient form. Their office is quiet, and inside a large building occupied by other dental businesses. Easy to find. Everyone in the office were very helpful and nice – especially Dr. Robert Quinn. Very nice guy. My retainer situation turned out to be more dire than I guessed – and the financial hit was my biggest worry, but knew it needed to be fixed immediately. However, to my surprise, he offered a very reasonable price. Not what I was expecting for an orthodontics specialist in San Francisco. But it was agreed, and I was at ease – finally relaxed. He got my permanent retainer back in ship-shape in no time. I left the office very excited and lucky that I found such a great place. Thanks Steph

My friend referred me to Dr. Quinn about 6 months ago when I was looking for an orthodontist. I have been very happy with my experience so far and would definitely recommend him to anyone. The entire staff is very professional, friendly, and efficient. The office has amazing views of SF you can see while being examined and I wish I could enjoy the view longer sometimes 🙂 But they have you in and out in no time and make visiting the office a great experience. Definitely would recommend to a friend!

Maura A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Quinn is by far the BEST orthodontist in the Bay Area. I am an adult patient, I am an architect and I am very picky. I had a complicated case that required Orthognathic Surgery. Dr. Quinn was patient and extremely effective at shepherding me through what could have been a complicated process, he made it seamless. Dr. Quinn has tremendous skill, the work he does with your teeth is completely customized to your needs . He transformed my teeth and my face into what is now a very beautiful smile. Dr. Quinn practices his work as a craft paying attention to the most minute details, the end result is absolutely perfect. Also it is Dr. Quinn who spends the time in your mouth fussing and tweaking and making sure your teeth are absolutely perfect and that you are happy with the results. His bedside manner is outstanding, his craft is impeccable and his staff is absolutely delightful. I give Dr. Quinn and his entire team a bucket of gold stars.

Aaron S. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am extremely happy that I found Dr. Quinn.  When I came in for a consultation he knew exactly what needed to be done on my teeth and explained to me very thoroughly how he was going to go about with the procedure.  When you go into his dental office, you’ll find that Dr. Quinn’s staff is also very professional and friendly.  I think what I like most about Dr. Quinn and his staff is that they are very accustomed to dealing with adult patients.  I received my braces about a month ago and so far am very satisfied with how my teeth are turning out and how little pain was involved.

Robert Murphy (Source: Google)


Dr. Quinn and his staff are amazing at what they do. I was nervous about being an adult with braces and they did everything they could to make this a painless process. I am so thrilled with the final outcome! Not a day goes by that I don’t look in the mirror and think about how happy I am with the outcome. If you are thinking about getting braces as an adult or for your kids, don’t hesitate. Dr. Quinn and staff are effective, gently, thoughtful, and patient. I would literally do it again if I had to!

Karla Mooney (Source: Google)


Always amazing! The staff is wonderful. Dr. Quinn is at the top of his field. I have two kids in braces at the same time. One is an easier case and the other one, my daughter had an impacted tooth and needed oral surgery (he referred us to a great surgeon) so her case has been more difficult. Both of my kids don’t fight me about their ortho appt even though they may be sore after, they don’t dread the visit by any means which says alot about Dr. Quinn and his team. Also, Sophia has been wonderful working with me on a payment plan and the whole office is very helpful and understanding.

Mariana M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I finally had my appointment to get my Invisalign aligners and it went incredibly well. Dr. Quinn and his staff have step up excellent COVID safety procedures. They are all the highest caliber professionals – knowledgable, kind, gentle. They had to glue buttons onto my teeth for the aligners and had to shave some of my teeth to make room for movement. It all went very well and they made me very comfortable throughout the process. They sent me home with clear instructions and everything I need for the next 29 weeks of treatment. We will check in periodically via app, and they are incredibly attentive about sending reminders and communicating with me. I know I can be sure that I’ll always get very friendly, attentive, professional treatment. I’m so happy with my whole experience so far and just love Dr. Quinn and his team.

I went to Dr. Quinn’s office at the recommendation of my dentist who’s in the same building. A permanent retainer bracket which had been affixed 20+ years ago after my second round of braces finally broke and needed to be replaced. I was immediately impressed with Dr. Quinn’s friendly and professional front office staff, the bright cleanliness of the premises and finally, the skill and great chair-side manner of Dr. Quinn and his orthodontic staff. He and his staff did an excellent job presenting different options and costs and answering all my questions. I was very happy with the results

T. S. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr Quinn & his staff to anyone looking for clarity of treatment plan, integrity and quality care. I believe they are so good that it was totally worth driving from South Bay to SF over the last couple of years. I contacted Dr Quinn for straightening my teeth. It was an uncomfortable concept to go through the process as an adult but Dr Quinn broke down how the treatment would work. He explained all options with clear information on his recommendation. He even connected me to one of the best periodontists – Dr Yonemura for gum work. The clarity of treatment plan made it easy to start and stick with the treatment for about two years. I realized fairly early that he and his staff displayed great integrity by putting interests above any commercial objectives. For example, he recommended using wires for better outcome even though Invisalign would have costed more. Finally things worked out as planned in terms of the treatment because Dr Quinn is an expert in his field and his staff is super efficient at scheduling visits. Sophia coordinated with Yuki at Dr Yonemura’s office to ensure that appointments at both places were set up together when possible. Overall I am pleased with my decision to go with Dr Quinn because of clarity of treatment plan, integrity and quality care. Highly recommend him and his staff!

Jackie M. from Alameda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great experience, thanks. Even though I was ten minutes late, the staff managed to do all the work in under the quoted 2 hours without rushing. Composite bonds were done on my molars as part of the braces process, eliminating the need for me to take on an additional expense with my regular dentist, very much appreciated! I did not get the name of the young lady doing a lot of the work (another dentist? an assistant? I’m not sure) but she was great, explained everything as she went along. Dr Quinn is very efficient with his work and the employees work together very well.
