Dr. Judy is a proud graduate of The Ohio State University College of Dentistry (as a true OSU fan, she did her BSc in Agriculture there as well). She also has a law degree and Masters in Taxation from the University of Akron. Some people are education junkies!
She has practiced over thirty years, including private practice, Native American reservations, military events, and even correctional facilities. The common thread through all these experiences is providing the best quality of dentistry possible in a manner that shows she cares about her patients as if they are dear friends or close family members. This is a one of the many reasons Dr. Judy is such a complement to doctors Beth and Dave and the Sunbury Plaza Dental family.
Dr. Judy’s passion for excellence is demonstrated through her Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. This award is held by only 7% of general dentists and reflects deep commitment to high quality continuing education and leadership within her discipline. She is comfortable in all phases of general dentistry and is looking forward to broadening the already excellent range of services that have been offered at Sunbury Plaza Dental. She is looking forward to getting to know you and helping you with your dental health goals.
Outside of the office, Dr. Judy enjoys a wide range of outdoor activities including fly fishing, bicycling, hiking and spending time with her adult children. She values her Ohio community and looks for opportunities to serve whether through her church or other venues. She supports the arts locally in Columbus, including Ballet Met and Actor’s Theater. She also spends a significant amount of any remaining time pursuing her side hustle of sustainable farming and can spend way too much time talking about organic produce. Don’t get her started!
