WHO WE ARE
Dr. Petersen says, “Orthodontics is about more than just straightening teeth. It is about building confidence, self-esteem, oral health and enabling people to get the most out of their lives!”
After graduating from the University of Utah, Dr. Petersen received his Dental Degree from the Medical University of South Carolina. He’s a member of the American Orthodontic Organization, the Umpqua Dental Society and the American Dental Association.
Dr. Petersen realizes that the orthodontic profession is rapidly adapting, and is proud to stay ahead of the curve by attending orthodontic conferences, networking with orthodontists nationally, and allotting time each week to the continued study of the latest orthodontic research.
Dr. Petersen says, “My wife Katherine and son Jack are excited to live in this wonderful part of Oregon and are active participants in the community. In my free time I can be found snowboarding in the winter, and hiking, biking, and fishing in Oregon’s beautiful outdoors in the summer!”
