I have been working in dentistry and orthodontics for over 30 years, and every day I feel lucky to have chosen orthodontics as my way of helping other people have a better life by giving them a beautiful smile they can be proud of forever. Throughout my career as an orthodontist, I have had the opportunity to build strong relationships with my patients. These relationships mean the most to me, and I enjoy the time I am able to share with my patients and their families.

I am also very proud of my team. Each member of my team is dedicated to helping our patients; and many of them have been patients themselves, so my team knows what our patients are going through and what they expect at every stage of their treatment.

As a practice, we all look forward to working with you. Whether you’re a patient, parent, or friend, my team and I are ready to answer any questions you may have, and to give the best orthodontic experience possible. Welcome to our practice; get ready to smile!

Dr. Ison’s Life Outside of the Practice

I am originally from Jeremiah, Kentucky, and I have lived in Cincinnati, Ohio, with my family for the past 15 years. My wife, Nellie, and I have two wonderful kids, Brad and Bethany, and two cats, Moon Pie and Jitter Bug. When I’m not at the practice, my family comes first! I love spending time with my wife and kids. I have also been a lifelong table tennis player, and it is still one of my favorite things to do. I also love eating ice cream (but always remember to brush my teeth afterward)!

I enjoy getting out into the community, and giving back whenever I can. For the past ten years, I have been involved with Donated Dental Services (DDS), an organization that helps provide comprehensive dental care to individuals who are disabled, medically compromised, or cannot afford regular dental care. I believe that everybody deserves to have a healthy smile, and it feels good to know that I am able to make a difference in the lives of those who may not receive dental care otherwise.
