Dr. Maraj has demonstrated his commitment to excellence in orthodontics by becoming a board-certified orthodontist.

Currently, only approximately ten percent of practicing orthodontists in Connecticut are board certified.
Dr. Maraj is dedicated to providing the most advanced treatment available incorporating contemporary research and continuing education. In a poll of more than 2,000 dentists, Connecticut Magazine named him as one of the top orthodontists in the state.
Dr. Maraj is involved in many professional societies including the American Board of Orthodontics, the American Association of Orthodontists, the North Eastern Society of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Connecticut State Dental Association, the Hartford Dental Society, and the Waterbury Dental Society.
Dr. Maraj resides in Farmington with his wife Laura and two children, Jillian and Ryan. He is an avid sports fan and enjoys golfing, exercising, reading, and photography.
