Orthodontics gives Dr. Nick Valeri the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of people in the Kenosha, Pleasant Prairie, and Racine communities. He finds it extremely rewarding to see the positive effects a healthy and beautiful smile can have on a person’s self-esteem and personality.
A native of Kenosha, Dr. Valeri graduated from Tremper High School before attending Marquette University in Milwaukee as a Pre-Dental Scholar. At Marquette, he was first in his class while graduating with a B.S. in Biological Sciences. From there, Dr. Valeri continued at Marquette University School of Dentistry and graduated magna cum laude with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2011. After dental school, Dr. Valeri decided to further his education with a two year residency in orthodontics at Marquette University. While in his residency, his research project was published in the European Journal of Orthodontics: “An investigation into the mechanical and aesthetic properties of new generation coated nickel-titanium wires in the as-received state and after clinical use.”
Dr. Valeri considers himself to be a lifelong learner. He routinely attends continuing education courses and reads scientific journals to stay up to date on the latest techniques and technology including braces, Invisalign, 3D printing, and digital scanning. This allows him to give his patients the best evidence-based care possible.
