Honesty, Integrity, Transparency and Trust

The Zidel Dental Group was established in 1968 by Dr. Daniel Zidel and has been continuously providing care for the central Ohio area since that time. What sets our practice apart is that we are a truly family oriented practice. Honesty and integrity are at the forefront of everything we do. Transparency and trust have allowed us to build long term relationships and have sustained the practice for over 55 years. The types of procedures we focus on really cover the full scope of general dentistry, from cleanings, x-rays and oral cancer screenings to fillings, crowns and bridges as well as dentures and partials. Implant restorations and cosmetic dentistry are also a focus of our practice. It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Zidel Dental Group and allow us to provide you with a positive and professional experience.
