November 2016 was Dr. Peterson's 30 year anniversary!
Dr. Peterson grew up in the Pittsburgh area and graduated from Bethel Park High School, where he marched in the band and played football for three more years. He attended Waynesburg University, and made the dean’s list with a degree in biology. Dr. Peterson attended Temple University School of Dentistry to earn his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. He joined Dr. Farrell Jackson’s dental practice in 1986 and took over the practice in 2002 upon Dr. Jackson’s retirement.
Dr. Peterson met his lovely wife Karen when she was an assistant manager with Smith Barney Investments. They have two sons, Nicholas and Christopher, who attended Upper St. Clair High School. They both played for the Upper St. Clair football team. Nicholas started college in 2011.
Dr. Peterson’s dental practice moved up to the “penthouse” level of the St. Clair building in September 2010 and he is excited to bring the “top, high-tech office” to the South Hills. You may have seen his practice featured on local television news and in local publications.
Dr. Peterson is a charter member of the Upper St. Clair/Bethel Park Rotary Club, where he enjoys being involved with community construction projects.
