Meet Christopher Peluso, DMD, MDS

Dr. Christopher Peluso grew up in Cumberland, Rhode Island. As a child, he admired his older brother, Jay, who taught him his life motto—“You don’t get what you wish for, you get what you work for!”

Dr. Chris loves living in Hopkinton. The friendly people and welcoming environment make it a great place to live and work.

Why orthodontics?

Dr. Chris has always wanted to be an orthodontist. Growing up seeing his father practice orthodontics inspired him to dedicate his own life to creating smiles. Today, he works alongside his wife to do just that!

Dr. Chris loves the art and science of orthodontics. The combination of physics and biology with an artistic touch results in beautifully sculpted smiles.

Nothing makes Dr. Chris happier than seeing a patient’s face when they see their new smile for the first time!
