As a kid, I remember falling in love with two things: dentistry and magic.
My dad was a Periodontist. I looked up to him and was proud of him, and so it was really dad that brought me that first love. I graduated from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry and have practiced pediatric dentistry in Columbus since 1984. That’s more than a few years, for those of you like me – who don’t flourish at math. The magic has always been a side hobby that I picked up when I was about 10 years old. I’ve been lucky enough to rub elbows with some really talented magicians, like David Blaine and David Copperfield. But big picture – it’s just a fun little hobby that translates here and there to the office – in posters on the wall or in making some kids feel comfortable in the dentist office.
I believe a smile we feel good about gives us confidence, and that our mouths are truly windows to our body. Our oral health intensely affects our overall health. If working hard on my craft can help you and your family feel good about where you’re going and be more healthy as you go, then I’m the lucky one.
I care about my family. My wife. My boys. My family here at our office. And we care about using these gifts God has given us to give back – We offer free dentistry to qualifying patients at the Vineyard Health Clinic each month – and we’ve been proud to host a Vacation Bible School Tour with 104.9 the River for kids during the summer.
If your family is looking for a dental home, we’d love to share our passion for dentistry – and a little touch of magic – with you.
