Dr. Doug Gordon grew up in Carlisle, a small town south of Dayton, where his father was a 6th grade teacher, and watching his father in his classroom helped him know from an early age that he wanted to work with children in some capacity. So, after college Doug entered dental school at the University of Kentucky hoping to specialize in pediatric dentistry and spent the following three years at Children's Hospital in Cincinnati to reach that goal. While training there, Dr. Gordon was exposed to basic orthodontics for kids. He loved that experience so much that he decided to get a second specialty in orthodontics.
Dr. Gordon headed back to his alma mater in Lexington from 1995 to 1998 to complete a master's degree and certificate in orthodontics. Immediately following graduation, he began practicing in Greenville, later adding a Troy location in 2006.
Doug used to enjoy hobbies in his spare time, however, he and his wife Michelle were blessed with three children. Now the Gordon family is busy with diapers and Disney Junior – and have never been happier!
