Meet Dr. Robert J. Tarby, Jr.

“BRAYCES” Orthodontics is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Robert J. Tarby, Jr. to the practice of Dr. Robert J. Bray and Dr. E. Gregg Pfund. A native of Southern New Jersey, Dr. Tarby is excited to return. Before attending Muhlenberg College, from which he graduated summa cum laude in 2006 with a BS double major in Biology and English, he was a student at Assumption Regional School in Pomona, NJ and St. Augustine Preparatory in Richland, NJ. Following the completion of his Bachelor's degree, Dr. Tarby attended the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, receiving his DMD degree in 2010. He is a graduate of Eastman Institute of Oral Heath at the University of Rochester, completing both his residency in Orthodontics and his Masters of Science with a research project in cleft lip and palate.

Dr. Tarby first joined “BRAYCES” as a patient in 1996. He has enjoyed a variety of summer jobs at the office, and was inspired through his experiences at “BRAYCES” to pursue orthodontics himself. A quick study and an enthusiastic teacher, Dr. Tarby will be an asset to the “BRAYCES” team. He is looking forward to reconnecting with a community he has called home for many years, and meeting his patients and their families.

In his spare time, Dr. Tarby enjoys fishing, traveling, and reading. In October, he will be marrying his fiancé, Betsy. The couple resides in Brigantine with their two dogs, Kosha and Izzie, and is enjoying summer at the southern NJ shore.
