A native of Spartanburg, SC, Dr. Roberts founded Blue Ridge Orthodontics in 2007 with a commitment to caring, personalized and state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment for each patient. That commitment has helped BRO grow to be the largest orthodontic practice in Asheville.
Our founder’s interest in orthodontics began early. “Having grown up in a medical family who spent our summers working in medical missions, I knew that I wanted to work in a field that creates a positive impact on the lives of others. Because of my exposure to patients with cleft lip and palate during those medical missions, I was drawn to the phenomenal change that improving the smile can have on people,” says Dr. Roberts. “I once participated on the cleft lip repair of a 68-year-old woman in the Dominican Republic — and the happiness and gratitude that she showed when we were finished has stuck with me since that day. I chose orthodontics because I knew I would be able to create that positive change in self-image for people every day.”
Seeing how his patients’ smiles change for the better is a daily joy for Dr. Roberts.
“I love seeing the transformation that happens when they move through the different stages of orthodontic treatment, and my favorite moment is when they get their braces off! It is so rewarding to see a beautiful smile and to know I helped make it a reality!”
When he’s not busy creating new smiles at BRO, Dr. Roberts is a devoted music fan and plays the guitar, banjo and mandolin. He and and his wife, Beth, live in Asheville with their children Quinn, Emma, and Charlie. The entire family loves fine and global cuisine and are avid cooks.
