Because you and your SMILE
are going places!
Our Approach and Philosophy
We believe in conservation and a holistic approach. That is why we believe in saving teeth and will only request teeth to be taken out when necessary.
We will start treatment at the appropriate age given the circumstances; no aggressive or premature treatment in this office.
We know your child's education is very important. Dr. Mendieta will do his best to schedule his appointments around and after school hours.
Message to adults: You will not feel like an overgrown kid in our office!
Our staff is really nice; no attitudes here and we accept Delta, CareSource, Molina, and some forms of Medicaid!
Our gentle approach is designed to make you or your child happy and comfortable while in our care.

Meet Dr. Mendieta
President of OAO
Dr. Mendieta has lived and visited many places around the world before meeting his love, Tina. They both live locally, here in Columbus, with their puggle, Lulu.
Dr. Mendieta received his bachelor’s degree from UCLA and went to dental school at the University of the Pacific, in San Francisco. After practicing general dentistry, Dr. Mendieta became an orthodontist upon completion of an orthodontic speciality program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He was past President of the Cleveland Society of Orthodontists and is the current President of the Ohio Association of Orthodontists.
"I have a passion for travel and have lived in New Zealand and Spain. I have been fortunate to have visited 24 countries so far! I speak fluent Spanish and enjoy reading. My past experiences in foreign countries and literature preferences have led me to have a deeper appreciation and understanding for people of diverse backgrounds. Rowing on the UCLA Crew team solidified the importance of teamwork. I enjoy staying active by running, swimming, biking, and attempting to play tennis. You might see me running around Antrim. :-)
Dr. Mendieta was recently named President of the Cleveland Society of Orthodontists! Congratulations
to Dr. Mendieta on a well-deserved honor!

I have finally found an office that I love!!! My search to have my bottom teeth fixed was way too complex! And every dental office literally wanted to charge me an arm and a leg!!!! Ha! Dr. Mendieta took the time to spend more then 3 seconds with me and thoroughly explained my treatment - a first from many of the offices that I visited! The staff is amazing - full of good energy and smiles! And best of all... it's affordable!!! I'm a single mom and these bills are no joke! I'm happy to finally get my straight teeth and have $$$ in my pocket! :)
I'll definitely be taking my kids here when it's time for them - and recommend them to everyone!
