Dr. Doug graduated from IU-Bloomington followed by the IU School of Dentistry with a  Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.  After practicing in Southern Indiana for four years, he returned to Kendallville to join his brother’s practice in 1998.  Dr. Doug enjoys getting to know the needs of each individual patient and providing them with detailed, expert dental care.  He is continually improving his skills by attending continuing education seminars and lectures and by participating in the Isaac Knapp and Fort Dental Study Clubs.  In his spare time, Dr. Doug enjoys working outdoors, old British cars, biking, and spending time with his wife Susan, and their two sons.  He is currently involved with Rotary, the Noble County Community Foundation and the Kendalllville Public Library Foundation.

Dr. Jim and Dr. Doug were both born and raised in Kendallville along with five other brothers.  It was a natural choice for them to return to Noble County in order to give back to the community that provided them with so much.  They understand what the values are in a small town and how that translates to providing quality, compassionate care to your entire family.
