I love dentistry; it is a profession that is both challenging and extremely rewarding. The ability to provide care for my patients that improves their overall health and well-being is something I do not take lightly. I view my job as an opportunity to change lives, one patient at a time.
Dentistry is very exciting; there is always something to learn, and technology has changed the way we practice. I feel that our patients appreciate our commitment to improving patient care through state-of-the-art technology, while retaining a warm, caring touch.
Education and continuing education
A native of Columbus, OH, I attended Upper Arlington High School before attending Bridgewater College in Virginia for my Bachelor of Arts. I completed my formal dental training and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from The Ohio State University. After graduating, I spent three years in the military before settling down in Butler County in 1979 to open my private practice.
I participate extensively in continuing education to stay abreast of the latest dental treatments, so I can provide the best care for our patients. This is aided by my involvement with the Northern Hills Study Club, the Seattle Study Club, and the Pierre Fauchard Academy, in addition to my affiliations with several professional organizations, including:
- Keely Dental Society, past president
- Ohio Dental Association
- American Dental Association
- American College of Dentistry
- North East Regional Dental Board, Examiner
