Great conversations

Dr. Billy was our family dentist for many years until he retired. He would always come out and talk to you before going in to have your procedure. A lot of times, he would have to stop during the procedure because we would be laughing. He loved talking about his family and OSU. We really missed him when he retired. Our condolences to his family.


My dentist !

So sad to hear of Dr. Billy’s passing. He was my dentist from the time I was 16 years old until he retired. Awesome person. Great patriot. Wonderful dentist.


One great human being

Shall I tell you that I actually looked forward to seeing my dentist every six months? He knew me. He knew each one of my family members. He remembered my sons names, where they went to school, and always asked what they were doing. We all were patients until his retirement – a sad time for us. Yes, he was more than a great dentist. He became a friend. He always joked and we always laughed. We always talked about his grandchildren. He is greatly missed. A wonderful person has left this world. We are so sorry for your loss.


Condolences

I am so sorry to learn of Dr. Billy’s passing. I was a long time patient of his until his retirement. My condolences to the family.


With great memories….

Very sad to learn of John’s passing. I knew him well from our time in the Army Reserves. We shared much in doing our duty and
our common profession of dentistry. John was a great man of character & integrity & a friend to all.
