History with BRAYCES
A native of Southern New Jersey, 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. He joined the practice as an orthodontist in 2012 and has enjoyed reconnecting with the community in which he grew up, and meeting new people, patients, and families. He is a member of the New Jersey Dental Society, having served as its president (2016 – 2017); of the American Association of Orthodontics, and of the Schulman Group, a nationally-recognized association of prominent orthodontic practices. He prides himself on treating each patient as a member of his own family and works to ensure the best possible outcome for all of his patients.
Outside the Office
Dr. Tarby and his wife Betsy reside in the woods in Galloway. They have three much-loved children, Mae, Owen, and Clara, and a happy Labradoodle, Izzie. In his rare spare time, Dr. Tarby enjoys fishing, birdwatching, and reading.
