Our philosophy

Our history

Dr Donald Taylor has been a practicing orthodontist in Montreal since 1979. His passion for the profession, his incredible participation in continuing education and his involvement in teaching have always kept him on the cutting edge of orthodontics. In 1997, Dr Claudia Giambattistini joined his practice, and together they have been collaborating closely on all patient treatments ever since. Both have been examiners for the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, lecturers at McGill University, chairs of the orthodontic program at the Royal Victoria Hospital General Residency Program and active participants and organizers for countless continuing education courses. After working together for just two years, they knew that they were a perfect fit professionally so they became partners and created TGO Orthodontics (Taylor-Giambattistini Orthodontics, or as Dr Taylor likes to kid, “Truly Great Orthodontics”).


For over 30 years, the TGO Way has been our guiding force in creating beautiful, healthy smiles for people of all ages. It’s based on being committed and responsive to the needs, expectations and concerns of our patients. Backed by a friendly and devoted staff, the TGO Way is about making this experience as pleasant and easy as possible. At the forefront of this philosophy is Dr. Giambattistini & Dr. Taylor, two of the finest professors from McGill with the expertise and knowhow to deliver unparalleled results.
