Gresh M. from CA, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just recently got my braces off and my results were amazing. I am so happy! To begin with I was a very difficult case with an over bight, and very crooked teeth. Dr. Larson provided a detailed treatment plan and what I could expect in term of my results. Wilma and the rest of the team are very friendly and personable. I actually look forward to my appointments and chit chatting with Dr. Larson. He is super nice and has a great sense of humor. Now that my braces are off I am wearing aligners as part of my treatment plan for minor adjustments. All I can say is Dr. Larson is a perfectionist with years of experience and I attribute my beautiful smile to his expertise. My results were beyond my expectations. I highly recommend Dr. Larson.

Dr. Larson and his team made me feel very special every time I visited. Dr. Larson was especially generous, tireless and patient with closing the spaces between my teeth and fixing my bite so that my upper and lower front teeth would not collide anymore. My dentist suggested I get that fixed in order to save my two front teeth. I am very happy with the results. My teeth look good and now I open my mouth when I smile for pictures. The assistants here and the receptionist are also amazing. They made me feel like a superstar. And when I heard them interact with other clients, I realized they treat everyone that way. I highly recommend this practice for their expertise and the comfort I experienced throughout the process. I would never want to work with a different orthodontist team.

Dr. Larson was highly recommend by a friend whose 3 kids are being treated by him. Dr. Larson and his staff are highly professional and caring. The facility is clean and fun for children. Even though he has lots of patients, we are seen on time without a long wait. They made our visit a pleasant experience and I would HIGHLY recommend him for orthodontic treatments.

Great place . I was referred here by my general dentist to start treatment and i was impressed on how professional the office was. Very clean, beautifully decorated, and modern. The entire staff was wonderful- they offered you water,etc. Myla , the treatment coordinator , was incredibly helpful as she explained what exactly would be happening. The doctor was also very nice and helpful. I did feel as though he was a bit rushed, which is understandable given she had many patients outside(because this office is that good!) They even sent a personalized note in the mail to me after my initial consultation. I highly recommend them.

My daughter had overcrowded teeth and she seldom smiled because she is so shy to show her teeth. After searching for an orthodontist, I picked Dr. Larson. And I’m so glad I did! Dr. Larson was very professional and the staff are friendly and accommodating. My daughter finally has a beautiful smile. And because of that my other daughter is also under Dr. Larson’s care! I give my highest recommendation to Dr. Larson.

Luis O. from Alum Rock, San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


We I have to say this place was awesome with my daughter. Super flexible with the appointments, and the service was by far the best. If I need it braces I would only go with Dr. Larson. He’s very professional and also wants the best for you and your teeth. The staff is very cool and nice always with a smile. In the area this is the place to go if your getting braces…

Margareta P. from Fremont, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Larson is my best and favorite doctor ever 🙂 as well as his staff. Two years ago I have decided to straighten my teeth. I visited a few other doctors who got me scared telling me how they would pull out my molars, but when I met Dr Larson he was honest and nice with me. He promised me he won’t remove any teeth out of my mouth and he will make my smile look stunning. Here we are, close to the end my orthodontic treatment and I have fantastic results. My teeth are already straight, the overbite is fixed and now he wants to do minor aesthetic corrections to make them perfect :)))) Believe it or not, nothing is better than a straight and clean smile. Can’t wait to get done with the treatment and be proud of my smile. I’m confident I will not be embarrassed to smile in pictures anymore. I recommend Dr Larson to everyone, kids and adults. He is a professional, does excellent work, has a great sense of humor, and he keeps his promises. He can give you the smile of your dreams.

“Choose Larson orthodontics if you want to have gains without pains :)” Dr. Larson makes orthodontic treatment a breeze. I am still under treatment; but, couldn’t be more satisfied by the ongoing results. The team is dedicated and makes you feel so comfortable. I already love how my teeth look, and seems after the treatment I will be in airs! Dr. Larson is very careful about every toothy move and makes sure that its done to perfection. I love how my journey was associated with least pain. Highly recommended if you want to achieve a best smile!

Susanna L. from Palo Alto, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my braces for 3,5 years and am I very happy with the result. My smile has totally changed and made me feel more confident. Starting a treatment plan like this at the age of 39 was not easy, but Dr. Larson and his team got me through. The treatment took Ionger than I had expected, but Dr. Larson assured me it would be worth the wait. I highly recommend this clinic.

Theresa T. from Sunnyvale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Larson is great! He was recommended to me by my dentist 10 years ago. My crooked front-bottom teeth had always bothered me; but, the fact that I was getting married in a few months gave me the incentive to find out if anything could be done. I was very pleasantly surprised when Dr. Larson said that my teeth could be straightened with a removable retainer. After only a couple of months, my smile looked great for the wedding pictures! And, my teeth are still perfectly straight today. I returned to Dr. Larson last year. With my teeth nice and straight, I thought I’d look into my less noticeable (but annoying to me) cross-bite. Again, Dr. Larson discussed the options, answered my many questions, and patiently explained the pros and cons so that together we could decide on the best solution (braces for my top teeth this time). He mounted the braces taking into consideration the way that I smile so that they were barely noticeable. Dr. Larson is efficient (both of my treatments were completed within a year) while also being a perfectionist. Many times, I didn’t even notice the small details that he found to correct. I always felt confident that he was taking the time to do things the right way while still getting me through the treatments as quickly as possible. I usually made my appointments in the morning before work. I never had to wait more than a few minutes. They got me in and out fast. Dr. Larson’s office environment along with his friendly, cheerful, and professional staff make it a great place for kids of any age

When my dentist referred me to Dr. Larson, and told me that Dr. Larson took care of his family’s orthodontic needs, that sold me.  Very happy to say that Dr. Larson has taken excellent care of me, too!  My treatment involved invisalign and a limited set of traditional braces for one stubborn tooth (bicuspid, I think).  Friendly staff always with nice, bright smiles; one of the dental techs had his teeth straightened by Dr. Larson and he’s got a great smile.  Bottom line, if you want your teeth straightened, come see Dr. Larson.  I’m glad I did!

Sandy C. from Mountain View, CA (Source: Yelp)


Was so impressed with Dr. Larson. First off, he really talked to me about what my teeth were doing and why it would be beneficial to get braces again. No one loves doing that as an adult, but he’s had me coming back regularly to check the progress and was very nice every time! His professionalism and ability really made me feel confident about the decision. Now my teeth are beautiful! Highly recommend!!

Noyes N. from Los Altos, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dear Dr. Larson We received your congratulatory letter regarding Ben’s completion of orthodontics. As with our daughter, we appreciate once again, your patience with Ben’s changing high school schedule and your willingness to accommodate us in a pinch! In addition, your understanding of his repeated broken brackets (teenagers!). I know you will see Ben from time to the time for post-treatment retainer appointments. With both of our children, your attention to detail and a level of perfectionism has rendered them both with beautiful smiles. Thank you! We’ll be happy to recommend you to family and friends. Thanks again

Brandi L. from Mountain View, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Larson! Both of my siblings have gone to him in the past, and the results were excellent. I had to give it a go at the age of 27! #adultwithbraces His team is professional and detail orientated. From the front desk, Wilma to Lisa and the other helpers in the back assisting Dr. Larson! During Covid and up until now, this office had/has the procedures down to a tee. I never once felt uncomfortable during this time. The office is clean and updated. I’m also a huge fan of the text appointment reminders – so helpful! I am delighted with the results of my teeth! Thank you, Dr.Larson & Team, for making me love my smile again!

Carilyn B. from West Memphis, AR (Source: Yelp)


doctor Larson and his staff are very considerate, professional, and patient. They made my grandchild and I feel that she was in great hands and she was. I recommend Doctor Larson to anyone who is considering having their teeth straightened with braces. He is a kind person who works in his patient’s best interest. He wants the finished adjustment to look as good as possible. My grandchild is now confident in her smile and I am confident in his orthodontic professional ability. -Ray Alessi

Today October 16th 2017, I got my braces off. I’ll be 50 on Halloween the end of the month and I’m really excited that this is done. I mention my age because if you’re putting off getting braces because you’re older, just letting you know you’re in good company. I’ve never had my bottom teeth get to be so straight in my life. Except of course back when I was a teenager…before my wisdom teeth came in like a wrecking ball made everything go out of whack. I’m going to see if I can upload the picture showing the difference. There was one tooth and particular in the middle that was so crooked, you might be able to make that out. Dr. Larson his staff are all very kind people and they are perfectionist. I’m very glad I went here. I’m going here tonight to pick up my retainer and I’ll be wearing it for sure.

Sharon P. from Los Altos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot believe that it has been over 9 years since I walked into Dr. Larson’s Office for the first time. During these years, two of my daughters have gotten their braces completed and we cannot be more happier with their now amazingly beautiful teeth! Everyone at the office is so wonderful and thoughtful, they always work hard to make appointments fit with our busy schedule. Myla the office manager is just delightful! When both my daughters had broken bracket/wire and needed emergency appointment, Dr. Larson would meet us during his day off! He and his staff truly cares about their patients and they don’t take any short cuts! Today my 12yr old daughter is starting her treatment, yes because I won’t go anywhere else for braces. If you are looking to get braces done, you should come here too, you won’t be disappointed!

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


My three children have been Dr. Larson’s patient for couple of years now. He is an excellent doctor and always have a smile on his face. He is always been caring, thoughtful, and always put my children at ease during their regular visits. I have been very satisfied on all the treatment that he did, and still doing for my kids, and would highly recommend him. I also give the staff a five star because of all the friendliness and the kindness they show to their patients.

Absolutely recommend Dr. Larson and his staff! They are absolutely amazing and did wonders with my teeth! Never thought I’d smile so bright as I do today! Everyone is so sweet and amazing, I was actually a little sad when I got my braces off because I wouldn’t get to see everyone! You will be glad you choose this office for your orthodontist needs!

Marlyn D. from Santa Clara, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Larson and his staff are awesome! From front desk to back office they’re all amazing! Mila and Wilma are both extremely helpful with squeezing me in or explaining how my insurance works. They are very sweet and I love seeing their beautiful smiles as the first thing when I walk in the door. Lisa in the back is an AMAZING RDA, she always makes sure I don’t leave with out being 100% satisfied with how my wires feel. She is really heaven sent! Especially coming from a person who is as picky as me! Dr. Larson is one of the most honest genuine orthodontist I have came in contact with. He never rushes me or my treatment. If something is broken he makes sure to get it fixed right away. He doesn’t half fast anything or make me feel like I am just a number! This office truly makes me feel like family and I am sure glad I found them!

Y N. from South of Market, San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Larson is a GREAT Orthodontist!!! I went to him in the 90’s and he gave me the most BEAUTIFUL smile ever. I was bad with my lower retainer and had to have MANY replacements, and eventually stopped wearing them. YEARS later I found my bottom retainer and brought it to Dr. Larson and he fixed it for me and they started to straighten again. But of course I LOST it again and decided to get my bottom braces again. I got the clear braces and no one even noticed that I had braces . A short 6 months later my bottom teeth are straight and now match my top teeth which are STILL straight 21yrs later. I would highly recommend Dr. Larson not only is he a great Orthodontist but he has an AMAZING staff.

Luzie L. from Mountain View, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was searching for an orthodontist for my daughter and found Dr. Larson through reviews online. During the initial visit, the office staff explained the treatment and expectations. I am so happy with the result after the treatment and can’t believe how beautiful my daughter’s teeth are! She loves to smile now compared to before the treatment. Now my 10 year old daughter is getting her braces. Her teeth were very crooked and looked horrible. After just a couple weeks of treatment her teeth were becoming straight. Now after only a few months, her teeth are almost perfectly straight. I didn’t think it would be possible to make her teeth look so good, but I can see they look fantastic and will be perfect when treatment is completed. Dr. Larson is very good with kids, confident, gentle and perfectionist! And the staff are all nice and friendly and make you feel very welcome. I highly recommend Dr. Larson to anyone needing Orthodontic treatment. He is one of the best.

I just recently had my braces removed and I couldn’t be happier! I actually had braces when I was younger but my teeth shifted out of place. So, as an adult in my early 40’s, I decided to get braces again. The research I did searching for a great Orthodontists brought me to Dr Larson…and I’m so glad it did. From the consultation all the way to the end (I still have a retainer…which I will wear faithfully!), I felt informed and part of the process. Dr Larson is kind and humorous and very professional. He explains the “whys” and the “hows” as you go. The office has a really pleasant atmosphere (it’s kind of decorated like an underwater scene…not in an obnoxious way!) and the entire staff there is wonderful.
My next appointment isn’t for a couple of months but I’m actually looking forward to it!

Yasser E. from Los Altos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient at Dr Larson’s office for just over a year. Dr Larson was able to come up with Invisalign therapy that has worked remarkably to align my teeth without any extractions, which is what other orthodontists I consulted with previously proposed. Dr Larson is extremely intuitive and considerate about patient safety. There’s a mix of adult and children patients at his clinic. Dr Larson and his staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and I highly recommend their office. I feel fortunate to be a patient with Dr Larson.

Don R. from Mountain View, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Larson is absolutely amazing! I went in for an orthodontic appointment a year ago and he is for sure one of the greatest doctor I have ever seen. He spoke very well and explained me everything about braces and invisalign. Now, I am almost done with my treatment and I can’t believe how great looking me teeth are now! The staff are awesome too! very friendly, knowledgable, accommodating and sweet esp. Myla and Wilma. I highly recommend Dr. Larson for any orthodontic treatment!

Ross B. from Mountain View, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr Larson for over 15 years now. He’s been a wonderful person to me every visit. I refuse to use any other orthodontist because this one is truly a rare find! Every visit is met with compassion, care and genuine hard work. Trust me, if you have issues with your teeth and want them fixed professionally; with the best care possible: Use Dr. Larson! Many thanks for all the help you’ve given me over the years.

Elizabeth S. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


From the genuine smiles to excellent and professional care, Dr. Larson and his wonderful staff make you feel like you have made the right choice in choosing them.  I also went in after a recommendation and am so happy I did.  I had been wanting braces for years (I’m 31 now) and decided it was finally time to do it and have the straight teeth I’d been longing for.  I went in for the consultation and the rest is history.  Dr. Larson and his staff gave me detailed updates on how my teeth were doing at each visit and towards the end, Dr. Larson would say I was close, but still had a tooth or two that still needed to move a bit.  I trusted his educated opionion and I now have my braces off and my teeth look and feel great!  The quoted time-frame was accurate (I didn’t miss one visit!) and I actually looked forward to them as there are fun (kid) movies playing in front of each patient’s chair.  Yes I am a grown adult but still find these movies cute and at times hilarious.  The office has an soothing underwater aquarium feel which I bet the kids’ love.  I know I did.  Thanks Dr. Larson!

Michelle N. from Los Altos, CA (Source: Yelp)


When we needed to find an orthodontist for our 8 year old son, we did the usual online research and then turned to the fellow word-of-mouth mom approach. Several students from our school and parents highly recommended Dr. Larson. We chose Dr. Larson because he is very honest, personable and highly recommended. He takes the time to explain what his approach is and to answer any questions you may have. His staff and front office are warm, personable and just all-around wonderful people! We have one child finished with braces; and have one more to go!

May D. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


ear Dr. Larson and Staff, Our experiences with your offices have been extremely positive over the past years. Your administrative assistant during our first visit gave us complete information as to what you expected during our ensuing visits and Dr. Larson provided a complete explanation as to the work needed to properly align the teeth. The financial advisor allowed us 100% flexibility to customize our payment plan. The orthodontic assistants were always pleasant, praising our children for following instructions and encouraged them with “keep up the good work”. Your follow-up appointments, to be sure their teeth do not shift back out of alignment, is a procedure other doctors may not provide. Dr. Larson your office is complete and we have had very pleasant experiences. However, none compare to the satisfaction we have when we see the SMILES on our children’s faces. Also, we LOVE your BIG screen TV!!! Keep up the good work! Stephanie

Dear Dr. Stephen Larson, This letter is long delayed as time got away on me. It should have gone out over a year ago! I’m writing to tell you how pleased and happy we are about the work you did on our daughter teeth! She has a BEAUTIFUL SMILE now! Our only regret is that we weren’t in a position to have done this for her so much sooner. I think she was a senior in high school when we could finally do it, but by 20 she had her braces off. She is still getting used to the fact she can truly have an open smile on pictures. She is so thankful that she had this work done. It is amazing what it can do for a person. YOU DO EXCELLENT WORK, and we have highly recommended you to our friends and family. Your staff is so friendly too; the atmosphere is one that relaxes your patients as everyone has a smile on their face. You are a very kind person, and it is obvious you hire staff with the same wonderful disposition. I remember how self-conscious my daughter was when she first went in to discuss braces, and you reassured her that she will have a good smile at the end of the process. It was hard for her to imagine. She has thanked us countless times for having her teeth straightened. She even has a broader smile! The change is amazing; it was such a good investment! What a transformation, and it has helped with self-confidence. We were glad when our oldest son started going to you too. What a difference it has made for him too. He’s actually smiling in a relaxed way rather than keeping his mouth closed. Although his work schedule has delayed his progress, it has nothing to do with you! We look forward to seeing how he looks when the braces are off. Again, we THANK YOU SO MUCH! This world is way too busy and stressful and it seems people have time to complain but often don’t stop to express their thanks to ones like you who do outstanding, skillful work. And really, the ones like you are very rare. You are truly a good person and orthodontist! Sincerely, MFamily

I came in for an examination to see if I needed braces. From start to finish, the front desk help was super sweet and helpful, and Dr. Larson was very informative with the options of treatment. With a simple consultation I felt more confident going back to get my teeth worked on by Dr. Stephen Larson. I ended up getting “Invisalign” and they quickly made time to take the molds right then and there. Within a few days everything was ready and finished. Super sweet staff, and even more amazing work! Highly recommended.

Dr. Larson was responsible for creating beautiful smiles for my sisters and me. I’ve had my braces off for years and I remember how smoothly it went from having crooked teeth to beautiful straight teeth. Dr. Larson is a perfectionist and would not remove my braces until it met his expectations. I recently came back to have the cement on my permanent retainer fixed and it was done right away. I definitely recommend Dr. Larson for anyone who needs braces for themselves or their kids. You will definitely feel taken care of by his friendly staff and feel comfortable at their clean and beautiful aquarium themed office.

Cath S. from Mountain View, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughter and son are both patients of his. Dr. Larson is experienced and professional and honest. My daughter had her braces off more than 5 years ago and when the metal wire holding the lower teeth came unglued, allowing the teeth to move, they fixed it without question with Invisalign. My son is undergoing Phase 1 treatment and the front teeth look beautiful. However, since he’s a perfectionist, Dr. Larson removed the braces as promised but is using Invisalign to get one tooth exactly where he wants it to go. He won’t compromise the end results and would never tell you what you want to hear just to get your business. The office staff is friendly and helpful, giving personalized attention every time we visit. I was referred by a friend of mine and since then all those I’ve referred have been satisfied by the end result.

Jasmine J. from Downtown, San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Both of my siblings have been going here for about 2 years now and when I lost my retainer, they squeezed me in for a super last minute appointment and was even able to get me my retainer a few days later (I don’t live anywhere near here and was in town for a short amount of time and they were able to expedite everything for me). Myla works at the front and tries to accommodate everyone’s schedule and is the sweetest. Dr. Larson is amazing, sweet, and excellent at his profession. I was in and out in a short amount of time! The whole team makes you feel so welcome making a visit to the orthodontist delightful.
