Practice History

Dr. Britta Tomer and Dr. David Shen originally acquired their orthodontic practice from Dr. Benjamin Ichinose in 1984, two years later renaming it the OrthoWorks Orthodontics Group. Dr. Tomer and Dr. Shen practice alongside eight orthodontics professionals specializing in a variety of treatments including Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®, surgically assisted orthodontics, cleft palate and cleft lips, computerized digital mapping orthodontic techniques, TMJ and sleep apnea. Simply put, the OrthoWorks team is dedicated to one goal: providing healthy, beautiful smiles for children and adults via the highest quality orthodontic care available in the Bay Area, and at an affordable price. To achieve this, we avail ourselves of the latest technological developments in the field. Over the years, thanks to the support of our orthodontic family and talented staff and doctors, the practice has grown from its original three offices to a total of twelve throughout the Bay Area, serving over 60,000 orthodontic patients. Over 100 years of combined knowledge and experience and a top-notch team enables us to consistently deliver the best possible treatment outcomes.​ In 2013, OrthoWorks Orthodontic Group was featured in San Francisco Magazine’s “Best of The Bay” Issue.
