Dr. Nathan Light – Orthodontist

Originally from Montreal, Canada, Dr. Nathan Light earned his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry from McGill University. He then completed a hospital residency program, which offered him advanced training in all fields of dentistry in a multidisciplinary setting and the opportunity to treat medically compromised patients. After doing private practice for two years, he traveled to Western Canada with his family to specialize at the University of Alberta in the field of orthodontics, the discipline of dentistry he found most intellectually stimulating and which he was most passionate about.

Dr. Light now lives in Teaneck, NJ, with his wife and children. He is a very personable practitioner who is careful to clearly communicate patients’ orthodontic treatment goals, as complex as they may be, in an understandable and relatable manner. Dr. Light makes it a point to inject humor into his encounters with patients, families, and his supporting staff. As an orthodontist, his primary goal is to help you smile, but he is also guaranteed to make you laugh.

When he takes off his orthodontist cape, Dr. Light likes to spend quality time with his family. You may also find him reading a book, playing chess, writing and playing music, or creating funny videos.
