Cater Galante Orthodontics



Hi, I'm Marilyn. I have been working in the orthodontic field for several years. I am honored to be part of Dr. Cater's team. He is a wonderful and caring leader.

I love watching the transformation of our patients and seeing their amazing results. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also love to bake desserts & eat them! Lastly, I love to walk the beaches, hula dance and go shopping!





Hi, my name is Carmen. I've been married to my husband for over 40 years, and I have four grown children and so far eight grandchildren.

I love spending time with my family, going out on day trips to amusement parks, zoos, and museums. I like also enjoy reading, travel, and food!

I consider myself very blessed to have my job, working with Dr. Cater. He is an amazing orthodontist and a kind employer. I've been involved in orthodontics since the 1990s. So, I've made many friends.

I love watching our patients' confidence and self-esteem grow with their new smiles. It brings me such joy to do this kind of work.

Please give us a call. Your first appointment will be with me, and I cannot wait to meet you.




Hi, my name is Mari. I am the marketing manager at Cater Galante Orthodontics. I went to the University of California Santa Barbara and graduated in the fall of 2014. After having orthodontic treatment as an adult and seeing the positive change it had on my life, I knew I wanted to help bring that to others. I enjoy making our practice fun and welcoming for everyone who steps inside.

If I'm not at work I am usually at the gym, hiking, taking pictures, or spending time with family and friends. I look forward to meeting you and helping you get the beautiful smile you have always wanted!
