Dr. Peters enjoys spending time with his family and taking part in many outdoor activities, including sailing, biking, skiing, camping and golfing.

“Growing up the son of a general dentist, I always knew I wanted to work with people in a private practice setting as a health care professional. Orthodontics was the perfect specialty for me, as I enjoy people, physiology and physics.”
