At Somerset Orthodontic Specialists, 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 their parents understand their treatment every step of the way.”

State-of-the-Art Technology

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

Kid-Friendly Office 

In his fun, friendly orthodontic office, patients can play video games or watch television—and kids love participating in the practice’s rewards program. Patients earn wooden nickels for excellent compliance and even good grades! They can cash them in for popular gift cards.

“Not only do we get exceptional results and create beautiful smiles for our patients, but we also have a lot of fun,” Dr. Peterman says, who is voted a sixth year as a Favorite Kids’ Doc.

A diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, 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.

“There’s nothing more fun or exciting than being an orthodontist… I get to transform smiles and boost a patient’s confidence, and all while getting to know these unique, talented kids,” says the father of four.
