Meet the Dentist

A Caring Professional Providing Quality Dental Care in Columbus, Ohio

Dr. Robert E. Garrison, Jr.

Originally from Lancaster, Ohio,  Dr. Robert Garrison earned his bachelor's degree from Ohio University and his dental degree from Ohio State University. He has been a practicing dentist since 1980. His philosophy of dentistry is to make a real difference in people's lives by improving their health and appearance.

To make sure his patients receive the most up-to-date treatments available, Dr. Garrison completes an average of 50 to 60 hours of continuing education each year. The Ohio State Dental Board only requires 40 hours every two years. 

A Word from Dr. Garrison:

In this day and age of people moving across the country at the drop of a hat, it is unusual that I have never really left central Ohio except for vacations. I grew up in the area of Mt. Vernon and Lancaster. I graduated from Lancaster High School and then attended Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. After I graduated from OU, I entered The Ohio State Dental School and finished in three years. I graduated in 1980 and went back to southeast Ohio to work for two years. At that time I moved back to Columbus and opened my office here in October 1982. We’ve been here ever since.

I am currently married with two children and the obligatory two dogs ( who, although they have regular names, usually go by doofus and dumdum).

We have always done an excellent job of general and preventive dentistry for families, and we continue to stress this as a basic part of our practice. With a combination of our orthodontic and esthetic services, we can also make significant improvements in how people look. Many of our patients have been unhappy with their smiles for years, and they are just delighted at what we can do for them. We also currently offer treatment for TMJ pain and discomfort as well as Sleep Apnea problems people may have.
