Growing up the youngest of four children to a teacher and a social worker, Dave’s parents instilled in him the values of helping other people, trying to make a difference in people’s lives, and the pursuit of excellence. He has had an interesting array of experiences in different fields where these three values are at the core. In Ollom Dental Group, Dave has found a small business that truly puts patients and the community first, makes a difference in people’s lives and continually strives to achieve excellence.
