I was born and raised in Trinidad and attended dental school on a scholarship. After earning my DDS degree, I completed a general practice residency, an oral medicine residency and a Master of Science in oral biology at the University of Missouri. I taught hospital dentistry at the University of Michigan and served as the assistant general practice residency director until I entered the oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at the Ohio State University in 2003. I have been in private practice since finishing that residency in 2007. I enjoy my family life, cooking, sports, and I am active in my church.

Dr Flemming is the best! He is a kind and gracious man. His knowledge is exceptional. I went to Dr Flemming to have 2 implants removed that were placed by another doctor that had failed. My experience was painless and Dr Flemming and his staff made me feel at ease during the procedure. I plan to return and have Dr Flemming place new implants. I would highly recommend Dr Flemming to anyone who needs a great oral surgeon!

Dr. Flemming is an excellent oral surgeon who has a real interest in his patient and a great sense of humor. His staff are friendly, competent and helpful. They were all very responsive to my concerns.

I had my wisdom teeth extracted today and besides some minor pain, I'm doing fine.The staff was very helpful and nice. Dr. Flemming was great with putting an iv in when I needed to go under. A lot of other doctors I've had just dug in my arm. The numbness lasted 10 hours so I haven't been in pain for much of the day which was great. The staff called me before they closed to see how I was doing and I thought that was nice. I will be recommending him to everyone I know. I am pleased with his work.
