Meet Dr. Robert Stern

The changes an orthodontist can achieve to the physical and emotional development of a growing child are spectacular. It is also equally exciting to create wonderful dental and skeletal changes to our adult patients. I have been practicing orthodontics for more than 26 years and I find it exceptionally gratifying to work with patients of all ages with the goal of creating beautiful and functional smiles. There is nothing like a great smile!

Education and Continuing Education

I am a strong advocate of continuing my dental and orthodontic education.

About Our Team

Stern Orthodontics is about much more than just the orthodontist. I am surrounded by a fantastic group of people, many who have been in our practice for more than 25 years. I think that speaks volumes about who we are. Many of our current patients’ parents are thrilled to see the same wonderful faces as when they were patients themselves. The entire team shares a passion to give our patients an amazing orthodontic experience with outstanding treatment in a professional, warm, and fun environment. 

Doctor Stern's family are also his patients.

Outside the Office

I currently live in Cherry Hill, New Jersey with my wife Debra and three children, Sam, Carly, and Allison. I have many hobbies and interests outside of work.  I am a avid  snow skiier and  biker. I am always with my Labrador retriever Phoebe, and depending on the season you will typically find me working in my yard or spending weekends at the Jersey shore.
