Dr. Sheridan and young girl in glassesAs a lifelong resident of Central Ohio, our community is my extended family. Throughout my career, I’ve met so many wonderful people who taught me happiness begins with helping others. Their generosity is both humbling and encouraging. Now, as a leader and business owner in Grove City, it is my honor to give back — and to provide patients and my staff the opportunity to do the same.

Since I have been so fortunate and blessed in my practice, I feel a strong sense of responsibility to give back. I strongly believe it is our responsibility and moral duty to help the less fortunate, the vulnerable and the children of both our Columbus neighborhood and around the world.

These organizations bless our Franklinton neighbors each week. We also serve the students of The Ohio State University and Ohio Dominican University, providing financial support for the campus ministry organization St. Paul’s Outreach. Each year, we sponsor two different events in Grove City funding the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, and we support Grove City Dawgs Youth Association, Grove City Athletic Boosters, Grove City Marching Band, Holy Family Church Parish and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish.

Our office’s passion for service extends beyond the Buckeye state. Each year, we take part in international mission trips to both the Dominican Republic and Cambodia. Outside of trips, we continue our work as missionaries throughout the year by financially supporting family-style orphan homes through nonprofit Asia’s Hope and libraries in rural Cambodia. In particular, thanks to the generosity of our patients, we are a major contributor to a home of 22 wonderful children in Battambang, Cambodia.

I pray for continued growth for our practice so we can share these blessings and more with our world. With the support of our patients, children like those served by Asia’s Hope are thriving. When you are a patient of Sheridan Dental, you aren’t just receiving excellent dental care. You’re also changing lives across the United States and abroad, bringing hope and being a light to those who need it the most all around the world.
