I was born and raised in the Columbus area, and am a graduate of the The Ohio State University and the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. I completed my orthodontic residency at the University of Pittsburgh, after which I began my orthodontic career in Columbus. That has lasted over 34 years.
I am a member of several professional organizations, including the:
- American Dental Association
- Ohio Dental Association
- Columbus Dental Society
- American Association of Orthodontists
- Great Lakes Association of Orthodontists
- National Board of Orthodontists
I am also on the orthodontic and pediatric dental faculty at the Ohio State University College of Dentistry and have been teaching interceptive orthodontics at Nationwide Children's Hospital for more than 25 years.
I spend my personal time with my wife Joyce and our four grandchildren. I also make time for golf and following the Buckeyes.
