Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Dr. David Kirkpatrick realized at a young age that he wanted to be a scientist. In fact, he thought that he wanted to be a marine biologist. At the same time, he always enjoyed going to the dentist. The way he saw it, he just sat there with his mouth open for an hour and then got to pick out a cool toy! It probably also helped that he brushed his teeth everyday and never had any problems with them.
In grade school he studied hard, graduated from Reading High School and then attended the University of Cincinnati, receiving his Bachelors of Science degree in 1982. After graduation, he enrolled in the dental program at Ohio State University, eventually receiving his doctorate in General Dentistry.
Attending Ohio State was quite an experience for Dr. Kirkpatrick. In addition to learning from some of the best professors in the Midwest, he formed lasting relationships with other students in his class. These relationships help Dr. Kirkpatrick to keep up with the latest in dental technologies. Subscribing to the theory that two heads are better than one, Dr. Kirkpatrick continually bounces ideas off of his dental colleagues.
Dr. Kirkpatrick started his practice in August of 1987 in Hamilton, Ohio because he was taken by the small town feel of Hamilton, his wife Katherine's hometown.
In his spare time, Dr. Kirkpatrick enjoys playing golf, biking and following college basketball and football, as well as the Cincinnati Bengals and Cincinnati Reds. Most of his free time is spent with his wife, daughter, son-in-law Mike and grandchildren.
A member of the Lindenwald Kiwanis, Dr. Kirkpatrick volunteers his time when he is not helping people in Butler County smile with confidence!
