Rockaway Orthodontics

Melissa Roberto, DMD 

Specialty: Orthodontics


At Rockaway Orthodontics, Dr. Melissa Roberto provides high-quality orthodontic treatment in a comfortable, family-friendly environment. She takes the time to answer questions from patients and their parents, who are always welcome to remain with their child during appointments.

“We want our practice to feel like a home away from home,” says the mother of two, who also lives in Rockaway. Passionate about her local community, Dr. Roberto participates in local events and hosts programs such as Operation Gratitude, which invites patients to donate their Halloween candy and write letters to soldiers serving overseas in exchange for prizes.

“There’s a strong sense of community in our office, and it’s almost like an ongoing reunion in the waiting room because so many of our families live locally and have referred their friends to our practice,” she says.

Convenient Treatment and Payment Options

Rockaway Orthodontics offers best-in-class customer service for families, including interest-free treatment financing and a no-down payment option. The state-of-the-art, all-digital practice provides comfortable, efficient treatment using the latest orthodontic technologies, including metal, ceramic, and lingual braces, Invisalign, interceptive orthodontics, TMD treatment, surgical orthodontics and TADs.

“We’re passionate about helping families feel comfortable and alleviating their anxieties about everything from treatment to financing,” she says.

Where Great Smiles Begin

Dr. Roberto graduated from Trenton State College, now TCNJ. She earned her DMD and orthodontic specialty certificate at UMDNJ.

“I went to dental school because I remember how much my personal experience with orthodontics boosted my confidence as a teenager...and the expression that comes across our patients’ faces when their braces come off and they see their beautiful new smile for the first time is incredibly rewarding,” she says.

 "Dr. Roberto is gentle and caring and always listens!" -Meredith, Landing

Dr. Melissa is exceptional. She has the "mom" touch when treating her patients. She eases them and talks them through the orthodontic process.

I recommend her to anyone looking for an orthodontist." -Suzie, Rockaway

 "Exceptional service. Very personal. She came in on a Saturday to fix my daughters wires." -Kelly, Rockaway

 "Her office is calm and serene and the staff is always very helpful. The rooms have cable TV for the kids to watch while at their appointment. Dr. Roberto makes everything kid-friendly and works hard to meet their individual needs." -Tamara, Highland Lakes

 "She knows each child and takes the time to connect with them, answer their questions and explain everything to them in detail. Everyone at her practice is extremely helpful and friendly! They are affordable and even give the kids an electric toothbrush when they start treatment, they have no hidden fees like other places and are very forthright with everything they do! We love Dr. Roberto!" -Kathleen, Randolph

" She makes her patient feel at ease. She explains all procedures not only to the parent but the child. She is very knowledgable and she makes going to the visit pleasant and not something to be dreaded." -Amy, Randolph

 "She takes her time and gets to understand and know her patients wants and needs. She isn't overly agressive and she makes the child's needs the priority. During orthodontic procedures she makes the patient and parent aware of what will need to be done and how the procedure may or may not effect your child. She's cautious and cares about her patients. Her office staff is absolutely wonderful and go above and beyond to make each appointment a calming experience." -Carrie, Randolph

 "She's just wonderful. She takes the time to explain everything and my son loves her! And he isn't an easy character!" -Alex, Wharton
