Dr. Chris Peluso was born in Torrejón de Ardoz in Spain while his father, Dr. Joseph Peluso was stationed there when serving in the Air Force. Unfortunately, Dr. Chris only lived there until his first birthday so his Spanish is a little rusty.

His family then moved back to the States and he grew up in Cumberland, RI. Dr. Chris attended high school at Bishop Feehan in Attleboro, MA. He then spent 11 years attending university and dental schools in Connecticut.

After qualifying as an orthodontist, he joined his father’s practice, Peluso Orthodontics. He now lives in Hopkinton, MA with his wife, Dr. Elizabeth Blake (who he met in residency) and his two children, Lucas and Isabella.

Dr. Chris always knew he wanted to be an orthodontist. The main motivation was, like most boys, that he wanted to be like his dad. Besides that, Dr. Chris was drawn to dentistry because of the mixture of art and science. At school, he loved art class and had a natural amptitude for science, so dentistry seemed like a natural fit.

Since becoming an orthodontist, Dr. Chris has enjoyed sharing his fun personality with our patients and amazing team. He especially loves to hear children laughing and actually enjoying their time in the office. What’s more, he finds huge satisfaction when a new patient looks in the mirror for the first time after taking off their braces. They are always amazed by the beautiful smile reflecting back at them.

Away from dentistry, Dr. Chris’s favorite thing to do is spend time with family and friends, especially watching Boston sports (Go Pats!). He stays fit by attending CrossFit and SwimRun. He is also an avid reader and loves sci-fi/fantasy books.

They are so flexible with scheduling appointments. Dr. Chris is very nice to his patients and always tells them what he is going to do before he does it. He and his staff are just amazing. I would recommend them to anyone.
