Dr. Gladura

Dr. Dean R. Gladura

Dr. Gladura has over 20 years of experience in dentistry. He graduated from The Ohio State University and has received comprehensive training in almost every area of dentistry. He grew up on the east side of Cleveland. After completing high school he went to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Dr Gladura had always wanted to pursue something in the field of medicine, but it was at ORU that he decides his calling was dentistry. “I have always enjoyed interacting with people and the thought of improving our patients’ health through their smile is probably the most rewarding part of what I do.”

Dr. Gladura enjoys talking with his patients and finding out what they really want. He is committed to giving the best treatment possible and is always concerned with what works best for each patient.

Outside of the office, Dr. Gladura is a football fan of The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Cleveland Browns. He enjoys exercise, martial arts, and strength training and is active in his church. His favorite way to spend his time is with his wife and two sons.
