Dr. Putman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Putman "Education Defiance College, Bachelor of Science in Biology and Restoration Ecology, 2005 Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, Master of Science in Biology, 2008 The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, Doctor of Dental Surgery, 2012 Additional Education Miami Valley Hospital, Department of Oral Surgery, IV Conscious Sedation, 2014 Personal Interests As part of my Master’s Program, I spent three years researching a threatened species of snake in Southern Michigan. During this time, I caught wild snakes and tracked their movements using surgically implanted radio-transmitters. The goal of the research was to help the Department of Natural Resources in protecting and conserving the threatened snake species. Hobbies I enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities and am happy to be living in Central Michigan, where countless outdoor opportunities await. Some of the outdoor activities I enjoy include: hunting, fishing, hiking, backpacking, birdwatching, canoeing/kayaking and snow-skiing. I have been bowhunting whitetails since I was 12 years old; bowhunting is undoubtedly my favorite pastime. Family My family includes my wife, Jenna, our daughter, Brianna. Brianna’s hobbies include: reading, drawing, calligraphy, playing her clarinet and video games. Our favorite family pastimes include: traveling, sight-seeing, hiking, camping, birdwatching and canoeing. We share our home with our dog, Ollie, and our cat, Milo. Jenna has trained Ollie and Milo to participate in hide-and-seek, which they frequently enjoy. Over the last few years Ollie has begun assisting me in tracking blood trails of deer I have shot. She isn’t the best tracking dog, but she is slowly learning."
