Dr. Peltzer is a member of the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists and completes hundreds of hours of continuing education each year to stay on the forefront of sedation options for his patients. Dr. Peltzer graduated summa cum laude from Brown University before continuing to the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. After graduation, he stayed at UCONN as a faculty member while also setting up his practice in Plainville, CT. For the past 35 years, Dr. Peltzer has continued to work with and learn from some of the leading dentists in the country all while earning his own accolades, like being selected as a member of Clinical Research Associates (CRA), The American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, and the Academy of Laser Dentistry as well as being named one of America's Top Dentists by the Consumers' Research Council of America in 2011, 2012, and 2013."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Peltzer "Dr. Peltzer in Plainville, CT has advanced his studies in different specialty areas of Dentistry so that his combined and complementary skills allow you to get the best available care. Most patients are inconvenienced when they are required to seek dental care at multiple offices. However, everybody should have the opportunity to have their dental needs met at one office rather than be referred to one specialist and then to another just to treat one tooth! Dr. Peltzer's patients are delighted that they can have all of their dental needs performed at Gentle Dental Care and not have to travel inconveniently from dentist to dentist. We do have close working relationships with all dental specialties should the need arise to consult regarding a specific situation."
