Your Hometown Dentist

Small-Town Service, High-Quality Care

Dr. Staten’s commitment to this community runs deep. He is a Watkins Memorial graduate and taught at Pataskala elementary for seven years before pursuing his true calling of dentistry at the Ohio State University. He is committed to creating a personalized, gentle, and compassionate oral health care experience. The practice is located in the original Etna school house built in 1877, and while the building was upgraded to utilize the latest state of the art technology, Dr. Staten’s old school values are reflected in the building itself. His faith in God is the foundation for his mission to help people smile. It is his honor and privilege to provide care for the people of this community. From making house calls to elderly patients, to visiting those in times of need, to treating emergency dentistry cases before and after hours, you simply will not find a more dedicated, honest, and passionate dentist to care for your family, young and old.

Taking Dentistry to the Next Level See What We See in HD Clarity

Maybe this sounds familiar – you’re twiddling your thumbs in the treatment chair while the dentist and assistant peer into your mouth, making comments to each other that you don’t understand. Here in Etna, we never want our patients to feel like they’re left in the dark when it comes to their own teeth, which is why we make checkups a much more interactive experience with intraoral cameras! This technology will capture high-resolution images of your smile and transfer them to a monitor in the room so that you and Dr. Staten can look at them together, discussing any problems and possible treatment plans with 100% clarity.
