What are your two favorite memories with your brother?

Favorite childhood memory was helping coach Jim’s baseball teams and watching him excel at baseball.

I also have great memories of holiday meals and hearing about my little brother’s achievements as he completed college and got closer to his goal of becoming an orthodontist like his big brother! He’s amazing at what he does.

What qualities in your brother do you most admire?
It’s always family FIRST with Jim. He’s very hard working and so caring with our staff and patients.

Besides both being orthodontists, what else do you have in common?
Both love our children and our Buckeyes. It’s a FAMILY FIRST attitude always with us both!

What is it like now working side-by-side in your own practice together?
Love it!! Wish I would have done it earlier in our careers. For me it validated Jim’s work ethic and constant striving to be the best and want the best for our patients.

When you’re not seeing patients together, you can find you and your brother….. Talking about our families while playing golf together.

Family is… The basis for LIFE. The reason we are here. The #1 priority in our lives.
