Dr. Peterson provided the braces for my 2 children. He was always very professional yet put the kids at ease. He thoroughly and clearly explained the... process and expectations. The kids never minded going for their periodic visits. Dr. Peterson was always cheerful and positive. The staff were also friendly, informative and helpful. Both children ended up with beautiful teeth and great smiles.read more

Dr. Peterson combines engineering and artistry. As an adult who finally bit the bullet to have braces again, I was very happy with the results. I... wasn’t a candidate for Invisalign, so went with conventional “clear” braces. Did I enjoy having braces? NO! Would I do it again? YES! Dr. Peterson and his staff are personable and professional. He listened to me and worked with me to achieve a smile that I’m very happy with. My only regret: I should have done my bottom teeth too!read more

I've practiced General Dentistry in Lincoln Park for almost 30 years but when it was time for my daughter to be screened for orthodontic care, I... realized we needed someplace closer to home. We consulted at three offices and felt most comfortable with the treatment plans presented by Dr. Peterson. The plans were all comprehensive but varied from conservative treatment to more modern and cutting edge ortho alternatives, or combinations of both. Once treatment began is where the true value of this practice became evident. The front office and assistants are integral to the office and are all very pleasant and more than competent at their tasks. Dr. Peterson was also very impressive in dealing with the pivoting that occurs during treatment in any long-term dental procedure as well as ensuring the results are maintained through the retainers and guards. As we near the end of our care we are all extremely pleased with the results and this office, happy we know where our younger daughter will go for her ortho, and I am reassured that I can continue to confidently refer my northern based patients to Dr. Peterson. Thank you all again for your care.read more

Overall, my experience at Peterson Orthodontics has been extremely positive. From the time I started my orthodontic treatment, I noticed that Dr.... Peterson always looked out for my best interest. He takes pride in his work and was often available on short notice when I had a question or needed an additional appointment. Recently, I noticed there was a crack in my clear, post-braces retainer (after nearly 4 years of daily use). I was quickly brought in for an appointment and given a new retainer less than a week later! Before leaving, I was told that if I had any questions I just had to give them a call and they would help me set up an appointment. The entire staff is lovely and I would highly recommend Peterson Orthodontics. I couldn't be happier with my smile and their service!read more
