Born and raised in Wheelersburg, Dr. Graf grew up thinking his dentist (Dr. Jerry Burleson) was the coolest guy he knew. For his 6th birthday, Dr. Burleson gave him a signed picture of Michael Jordan, which at the time meant more to Dr. Graf than anything else he could have received. This unforgettable childhood moment inspired Dr. Graf to pursue a career in dentistry and ultimately serve the people of his hometown!
I absolutely love serving people, giving back to the community where I grew up, and meeting the growing need for excellent dental care in Scioto County. Being a dentist allows me to combine my passion for clinical dentistry with my deep desire to help people.
Dr. Graf went on to complete both his undergraduate business degree and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at The Ohio State University. During his time at The OSU College of Dentistry, he was the only student out of his class of 112 to complete a full year of residency during his 4th year of training. This not only allowed Dr. Graf to gain nearly triple the experience of his peers, but it also gave him the opportunity to become a surgical extern at the famed Midwest Implant Institute. He's known as a meticulous clinician with a passionate heart for people.
Furthering his passion for dental surgery and helping others, Dr. Graf regularly mentors at one of the biggest implant continuing education centers in the country: Implant Pathway. There, he teaches other surgeons how to practice surgery at the highest level and with the most success.
Beyond serving patients, both locally and overseas in Honduras, he loves spending time with his wife, Kayla, and their daughters, Kamila and Aria. Dr. Graf also enjoys the Buckeyes, Bengals, and Reds, woodworking, the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and taking advantage of all the little things that make small-town Ohio the best place to live!
