Dr. Flemming's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Flemming "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."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Flemming "My practice is based around four core values: compassion, trust, respect, and accountability. My staff and I take all the steps necessary to ensure that every patient feels welcome, is at ease, and has a wonderful experience while under our care. We use the latest technology and proven methods to provide every patient with the best care possible, leading to predictable results.

The importance of having a kind, knowledgeable, and well-trained staff cannot be overstated. My staff and I regularly participate in continuing education classes so that we are all up-to-date on the latest standards of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Our hope is that this combination of friendliness and knowledge will put our patients at ease during their course of treatment."
