Dr. Robert Peterman is committed to making patients feel comfortable and confident from their first consultation to the moment their braces come off and a gorgeous new smile is revealed. “I take the time to ensure that both patients and parents understand the treatment every step of the way,” says the father of three.

A board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Peterman offers cutting-edge techniques and technology in his all- digital practice, including the elimination of impressions with Itero digital scanning, digital X-rays, 3D printing and Invisalign. “We use technology to deliver the best treatment possible based on each patient’s individual smile and facial aesthetics,” he says.

Dr. Peterman earned his DMD from the University of Pennsylvania. He continued his dental training at Rutgers University where he earned a specialty degree in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and a master’s degree for his research in the field of orthodontics.

"Highly recommend Dr. Peterman! My daughter is congenitally missing both lateral incisors. Special care had to be taken to provide precise spacing to allow for future implants while creating perfectly straight, aligned teeth throughout. She just had her braces removed today and her teeth are perfect...he's a perfectionist! " ~Kellie, Branchburg

"I love his honesty and professionalism. Dr. Peterman informed us of what our oldest son needed and didn't need. He also informed us that our youngest didn't need treatment.
