Away from the Office

When not in the office seeing patients (or preparing case work-ups) and tending to the daily running of the office, Dr. Ovens is a “crazed” tennis player who plays many hours each week! When needing something less physical, he expresses his creative side through woodworking projects. His talent extends from basic cabinetry to ornately embellished furniture. And heaven forbid he have any unused time, so when he seeks mental stimulation, a never ending array of continuing education and personal growth courses are pursued. “If there is one thing I constantly strive to provide my patients, it is high-quality treatment. I wanted to become an orthodontist because I love that type of work and what it does for people of all ages. They appreciate the personal attention, the friendly care and the follow-up calls at home to make sure they’re comfortable. Nothing is more important to me (or more fun) than providing some of the absolute finest orthodontic care to this community.”
