When he was still quite a young man living in Dayton, Ohio, Dr. J. Michael Heider, D.D.S., noticed that his hometown dentist made a big difference in the lives of people in his community. His attention to science, technology, and artistry allowed him to show a caring personality to each of his patients, as he helped them feel better daily. Although he was only one man, he made a big difference in many lives and made a huge impact on the young Dr. Heider.
Growing up with a beautician and a metallurgist for parents, he gained a well-rounded mix of artistry and technology that became a part of who he is. Dr. Heider began to focus on his own need to help others, and found that he had a passion for the health sciences. He graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology and went on to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree at Ohio State University. He completed a general practice residency at the Miami Children’s Hospital.
After finishing his residency, he began gaining experience in the field of dentistry as an associate dentist and began his desired career of helping people gain confidence by improving their smiles. In part, this led him to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He realized that a person’s entire life is affected by the way he or she feels, and that a person who is confident will allow themselves to try more things and to succeed at them. He began to truly understand how important one’s smile is to one’s self-image. He continued to grow his own practice and to meet his daily goal of helping people improve their health and their self-image.
As the need for a larger building became apparent, Dr. Heider wanted to be sure that the new building would include completely state-of-the-art equipment as well as being a pleasant and enjoyable place. His old passion for technology and artistry combined in his desire for the new building to contain the highest quality of technology in a place that did not feel clinical to his patients. Because he had a particular vision for the building, he took architectural courses so that he could learn about building design. He eventually helped design the new building himself. That building is the current home of Ultimate Smile™. As you will see when you visit, he has successfully created a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere that is completely digitized and uses the latest dental technologies.
When you meet with Dr. Heider, you will feel how much he cares for the well-being of each of his patients and you will appreciate the state-of-art equipment that he uses for all procedures.
