About Us

Our Mission

At Marcel Method, our mission is to assist each patient in achieving and maintaining long-term dental health and a beautiful smile. Dr. Thomas Marcel and Dr. Jasmine Faldu are committed to creating an exceptional patient experience for you to ensure you enjoy every visit to our office.

With three locations in Livermore, Tracy, and Pleasanton, CA, we’re proud to take care of patients both near and far!

Meet Dr. Marcel


Dr. Marcel believes that orthodontics is much more than just moving teeth; it’s about getting to know patients on a personal level. His goal is not only to give patients a better smile but also to ensure they leave the office happier than when they first walked in.


With an undergraduate degree from Santa Clara University, Dr. Marcel earned Doctorate Degrees in dentistry and orthodontic specialty training from the University of California, San Francisco. Shortly after graduating in 1991, he opened his first practice in Livermore, California. Additionally, he is a member of several dental boards, clubs, and associations.


In his personal life, Dr. Marcel is a huge sports fan and loves the San Jose Sharks! In his free time, he tries to attend as many games as he can. He also enjoys biking and golf for exercise, music, cooking, watching movies, and reading.

Meet Dr. Faldu


With dreams of becoming an orthodontist since childhood, Dr. Faldu is committed to creating beautiful smiles and ensuring optimal oral health.


Dr. Faldu began her orthodontic journey by attending the New Jersey Institute of Technology, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering. She then went on to complete her Doctor of Dental Medicine program at the University of Pennsylvania, and earned an Orthodontic Certificate, and Masters of Oral and Craniofacial Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco.


Outside of the office, Dr. Faldu can be found taking in the beauty of California and enjoying the mild winters. She also loves being outdoors, experimenting in the kitchen, and spending time with her family.
