Doug Hudoba chose a more circuitous route dentistry despite being the son of a Periodontist. Growing up in the suburbs of Youngstown, OH, Doug would study Zoology and Cardiac Physiology before ultimately deciding to pursue dentistry over other medical pursuits. We’re glad that he did as he’s become an invaluable member of our team.
A skilled clinician, Dr. Hudoba’s strong suit is exceptional patient care. He shares the belief that empathy is the most important trait a clinician can possess. “Treat the person in front of you as you would want to be treated. Earning the patients trust allows them to relax and that’s when great outcomes take place.”
Doug and his wife Jaime met in college at Miami University.
Jaime now works at the Ohio State University on a fundraising development team for the OSU James Cancer Center.
Away from work Doug’s inquisitive nature makes him an avid learner, always active with something new and exciting. To relax, he enjoys cooking for his wife and friends, growing hot peppers in their garden and bottling his own secret recipe hot sauce.
“The most rewarding aspect of dentistry is undoubtedly the relationships you forge with patients and families. I know some people are afraid of the dentist but as the son of a dentist, his office was always a safe and comfortable place for me. I want to help my patients feel that same comfort when they visit us.”
