Meet Dr. Nicole Peters

Transforming Lives, One Smile at a Time

I am passionate about providing each patient with a beautifully healthy smile. I love to see a person’s transformation, in their appearance and also in their confidence and self-esteem.

I love being an orthodontist: I love people and I love working with people of all ages, from children through teens, adults, and even grandparents, and from diverse backgrounds. My patients feel like an extension of my own family and I enjoy being part of their lives as they move through treatment.

I’ve been practicing for more than 20 years. From a young age I knew I wanted to go into healthcare as I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. I realized that many times people do not feel comfortable because of their crooked teeth, which affects their oral health, as well as their body and emotional wellness.

As an orthodontist, I can bring out a person’s beauty, improving their health and happiness, and increasing their self-confidence, all by giving them a smile they love!  Dr. Nicole Peters
