A Proud Member of the Upper Arlington Community

“Most of the families I grew up with are still here! This is an incredible community – very tight-knit. We are a very proud community with so many good and wholesome people, which translates to great patients! I’ve been here, anchored here, for my entire life; so I feel obligated to provide the best oral care for the town that I grew up in. Also, it’s always fun when patients walk in – sometimes, they’re folks I haven’t seen in 3 decades.”
