Dr. Heidi Stauffer
Dr. Heidi grew up in the Columbus area and graduated from Worthington Kilbourne High School in 1999. She received her BA in computer science from St. Louis University in 2003 and received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from The Ohio State University in 2007.
While in dental school, she met and married her husband Andrew. Andrew works for a software company doing computer mapping, and loves it! You'll often find him in the office talking about maps and Geographic Information Systems with patients and anyone who will listen.
After graduating from dental school, Heidi and Andrew relocated to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Dr. Heidi began her career working in a pediatric public health clinic just north of Seattle in Everett, WA.
After 2 years she left the public health clinic and joined a private practice in a suburb of Seattle, called Sammamish, for the next five years. During that time she was named a Top Dentist by her peers in the Seattle area, and has also been named to this honor most recently in Columbus. Over those 7 years in Seattle, life changed significantly. They added two beautiful kids and a dog to their family. While life was great out west, Dr. Heidi wanted her kids to grow up near the family and friends she missed back home in Ohio.
Dr. Heidi had kept in touch with Dr. Brad Fulton over the years and she knew this would be a perfect place for her. Being a patient of his since she was 6, it was too amazing of an opportunity to pass up. Dr. Heidi came into the practice in the Spring of 2014 and hit the ground running. It has been the perfect environment that she has wanted in a dental office, which is a family practice with a personal feel. Dr. Brad retired in 2018 but frequently pops in for visits. Our practice continues to grow and follow in his foot steps. We have remained the quality practice he built that welcomes each patient as family.
After her formal dental education, she continues to grow as a professional by attending many continuing education courses. She currently belongs to Spectrum Dental Society, to help keep her up to date on the most recent dental advances. They provide her with not only courses but a forum to connect with other general dentists and specialists in order to gain from each other's experience.
