At Rockaway Orthodontics, Dr. Melissa Roberto strives to provide the highest quality orthodontic treatment in a warm, nurturing environment. “Our practice emphasizes helping families feel comfortable, and alleviating their anxieties about everything from treatment to financing,” says the Rockaway-based mother of two.

A Solo Orthodontic Practice

Practicing for more than 15 years, Dr. Roberto prides herself on the level of customer service she provides patients and families. As a solo practitioner, she sees and treats every patient at every appointment, and provides clear treatment plans tailored to each child’s individual needs. She takes the time to answer questions and listen to concerns from parents, and maintains close contact with families via phone, text and email to ensure continuity of care.

“Our practice is committed to making orthodontic visits pleasant, stress-free and rewarding for patients and their parents,” Dr. Roberto says. “I communicate patients’ needs in terms that patients and parents understand.”

Where Great Smiles Begin

In order to face today’s unique challenges, the practice has made changes to ensure safety while still striving to maintain its patient-friendly environment. The all-digital practice provides comfortable, efficient treatment utilizing the latest orthodontic technologies, including metal and ceramic braces, Invisalign and interceptive and surgical orthodontics. Rockaway Orthodontics offers interest-free financing and a no-down payment option.

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 orthodontic experience boosted my confidence as a teenager,” she says. “The expression that comes across our patients’ faces when they see their new smile for the first time is incredibly rewarding.”
