Dr. Mike Skrobola grew up in Middletown, New York, where he spent his childhood enjoying the great outdoors and playing sports with his three younger brothers. The son of an orthodontist and a nurse, Dr. Mike knew from a young age that he wanted to be in the health care field. He always enjoys making people smile whether though dentistry or laughs, and orthodontics became his passion.
Dr. Mike has an extensive educational background that started at neighboring Lafayette College, where he graduated in 2012, and was published in the Journal of Comparative Neurology for his research on optics. Following his undergraduate education, Dr. Mike earned his dental degree at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, where he graduated number one in his class.
He then began his training in orthodontics at the prestigious Eastman Institute for Oral Health, where he was one of only six students to be accepted. During his orthodontic training, Dr. Mike did research on the connection between growth, age, and orthodontics. This work is published in the Journal of Progress in Orthodontics. He also provided orthodontic care for cleft lip and palate patients and the craniofacial team at Strong Memorial Hospital. It was also at Eastman where Dr. Mike met his wife, Andrea, another orthodontist, and Pennsylvania native!
Outside of work, Dr. Mike loves spending time with his wife and family. In his spare time he enjoys weight-training, the outdoors, and watching cooking shows.
Dr. Mike hopes to bring his enthusiasm for orthodontics and love of laughs to his patients. He is very excited and honored to take care of all of you!
Dr. Peter Sulaiman was born and raised right here in Collegeville back when route 29 was just a sleepy little road. He’s a very proud graduate of Grove City College where he played Varsity soccer and completed a bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology. There, he met his future wife Evelyn, and the two are currently expecting their first child in September. He finished his doctorate at the University of Pittsburgh and subsequently completed his Orthodontic residency training there as well. In addition to his training, Dr. Sulaiman attained a master’s degree focused on the beneficial effects expanders have on sleep quality in children. He continues to utilize this knowledge as he treats his patients.
Outside of work you’re likely to find Dr. Sulaiman either watching or playing soccer. As a kid, he couldn’t’ get enough and as an adult, he tries to play at least twice a week.
From a young age, Dr. Sulaiman was taught that if he’s not going to be the best at something, don’t do it! He lives by the mantra that every task should be done to the best of his ability. It doesn’t’ matter whether he’s cleaning dishes, cutting the lawn, or straightening teeth. He strives to do every task, big or small, with the same level of commitment. He is beyond excited to practice as an orthodontist in his hometown community and to treat you all as part of his family.
