DR. JORGE PERALTA
When Dr. Jorge (pronounced George) Peralta first began his own orthodontic treatment at the age of thirteen, he thought it was a rite of passage experienced predominantly by kids his age. It was not until years later while he was in dental school that he saw orthodontics through a different lens: a true solution to many of today’s dental problems. Transformative, comprehensive and often prophylactic in nature, orthodontics appealed to Dr. Peralta because it allowed him to create positive experiences with lasting benefits.
His path to dentistry began at the University of Nevada, Reno where he studied biochemistry. Because of his exceptional academic achievements as an undergraduate, he was granted early acceptance to Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, one of the nation’s most elite dental schools. After graduating near the top of his dental school class and receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery, Dr. Peralta went on to receive his Certificate in Orthodontics at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.
He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Premier Study Club, South Sound Multi-Disciplinary Study Club, and West Seattle Study Club. He regularly attends continuing education courses and lectures on his experience in treating to the ideal functional and aesthetic outcome. His peers recently chose him as one of Seattle Met Magazine’s Top Dentists!
Dr. Peralta lives in West Seattle with his wife, Erin, who is also the office manager. He is committed to the Burien and West Seattle communities and is involved in many local school and non-profit organizations, including the Highline Schools Foundation, Burien Brat Trot, Cove to Clover and Y.E.T.I. Club! Additionally, he speaks Spanish fluently. In his spare time, Dr. Peralta enjoys walking his dogs on Alki, building and collecting vintage watches, and cycling.
