Doug Gordon, D.M.D., M.S.
I grew up in Carlisle, a small town south of Dayton, where my father was a 6th grade teacher. Watching Dad in his classroom helped me know from an early age that I wanted to work with children in some capacity. So, after college I entered dental school at the University of Kentucky hoping to specialize in Pediatric Dentistry. I spent the following three years at Children's Hospital in Cincinnati to reach that goal and while training there I was exposed to basic orthodontics for kids. I loved that expereince so much that I decided to get a second specialty in Orthodontics.
If you are thinking my parents doubted I'd ever be finished with schooling, you are right!
I headed back to my alma mater in Lexington from 1995 - 1998 to complete a master's degree and certificate in Orthodontics. Immediately following graduation, and to the immense delight of my parents, I began practicing in Greenville. We added a Troy location in 2006.
I used to enjoy hobbies in my spare time, however, my wife, Michelle and I were blessed with a son in 2014 followed by a daughter a year later. Now we are busy with diapers and Disney Junior .... and have never been happier!
