Education and Continuing Education
For my entire academic career, I attended Ohio State University. Here, I received an incredible education that set a solid foundation for me to become a highly-skilled orthodontist. At the university, I completed my undergraduate degree in biology (summa cum laude), Doctorate of Dental Surgery (summa cum laude), specialty training in orthodontics, and a Master of Science degree in craniofacial biology.
During my time in dental school and my residency, I worked very closely with many children at the Nationwide Children's Hospital in the Craniofacial Abnormalities Clinic. These experiences provided valuable practice in treating patients with special needs and seeing to their utmost health and happiness.
Of course, my education does not stop with my formal academic training. I understand how important it is for my patients that I stay fully abreast of all the latest developments and trends within my field. For this reason, I dedicate much of my free time to continuing education courses and seminars. My patients benefit from this by receiving faster and more effective treatments that give them better results.
I am proud to have been chosen as one of Columbus' Top Orthodontists from 2011 to 2016. This distinguished honor, voted on by general dentists in Columbus, is based on quality of service, patient comfort, and excellent working relationships with referring dentists. In addition to this prestigious award, I was also named "Best Westerville Orthodontist" in 2015 and was additionally the recipient of the "2012 Commitment to Excellence" award from the Downs Syndrome Association of Central Ohio for my work with patients with special needs.
By holding active memberships in a number of professional organizations, I am afforded a crucial opportunity to converse and share ideas with my professional colleagues. This is one of the most beneficial channels for continuing my education, and my memberships are integral to my practice.
- Cleveland Society of Orthodontists
- W.D. Miller Dental Society

Outside of the Office
In my time away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Zhenia, and our sons, Jake, Jordan and Julian. Having spent my entire life in central Ohio, I am a huge Buckeye football and basketball fan. When I get the chance, I love playing golf, traveling, and visiting as many different baseball stadiums that I can.
