Dr. Griffin often balanced two roles – working as a solo doctor and working in tandem with an associate dentist.

Before opening the doors to his own practice, Dr. Ronald Griffin had to earn some professional experience. He worked as an Associate Dentist at Timothy G. Nusbaum, DDS, Inc. He worked here for six years. It was his first (and only) associate position out of residency. It’s worth noting that Dr. Griffin would eventually purchase this practice and turn it into the organization he runs today. During this time, Dr. Griffin performed conventional dentistry procedures, oral conscious sedation, and general anesthesia cases. 

However, before Dr. Ronald Griffin could step into any of these dentistry roles, he first had to obtain an education. He started by earning a degree through the University of Cincinnati. This degree was in Biological Sciences. Following this, Dr. Ronald Griffin attended the Ohio State University College of Dentistry. This was a four-year DDS program, and Dr. Griffin graduated in the top third of his class. With this foundation in place, it was time to find a residency program. Dr. Griffin went with General Practice Residency at the Medical College Hospital in Toledo, Ohio. This led to his second and final residency in Pediatric Dental. He worked with the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh for two years to achieve this goal.
