Why Dentistry 

Dr. Dave’s father was a dentist, and he was the youngest of four siblings. Despite his siblings lacking interest in dentistry, Dr. Dave’s father began grooming him for the profession at a young age. During summers, Dr. Dave worked as his father’s assistant, which eventually led him to apply to dental school. According to Dr. Dave’s father, Dr. Michael Anthony, his son’s natural eye-hand coordination made him a good fit for dentistry. However, Dr. Dave believes that his father saw him as the last hope to carry on the family business. Regardless of the reason, Dr. Dave has discovered that he enjoys working with his hands and finds joy in helping others, which has made dentistry a fulfilling career for him.


Dr. Dave graduated from Worthington Christian High School before attending Cedarville University. He went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from The Ohio State College of Dentistry, proudly representing his alma mater with a resounding “Go Bucks!”
