CINCINNATI, OH, – They say home is where the heart is, and no one knows this better than Afinia Dental’s newest talented team member Dr. Lindsay Runyan. She was born in the Mason area and is looking forward to helping care for patients of all ages and their smiles.

“I am thrilled to be a part of the Afinia team and to have this outstanding opportunity to care for our ever-growing family of patients,” said Runyan. “Being a dentist gives you the unique ability to help people stay healthy and feel good about their smile. This is very special to me.”

Runyan attended Kent State University on a gymnastics scholarship where she was a member of the school’s Honor College while working towards a Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry. She then went on to pursue her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, where she held several top leadership positions.

“We are very lucky to have a skilled, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic person like Lindsay as part of our team of caring professionals,” said Afinia Dental Founder and President Dr. Andrew Killgore. “She’s fun-loving and also very compassionate. That means a lot to me and to our patients.”

When asked why she chose to pursue a career in dentistry, Runyan’s answer is simple.

“I absolutely love helping people. It’s so special to make someone’s smile not only healthy and free of disease but to make it look incredible too,” said Runyan. “Giving someone the smile they’ve always wanted is really amazing.”

Runyan is an Invisalign®-certified dentist, the recipient of The Academy of Operative Dentistry Award along with the Outstanding Commitment to Community Award for her outreach work.

When’s she’s not busy saving smiles and changing lives, Runyan has her hands full planning a soon-to-be wedding with her fianc√© Matt, whom she met while studying at dental school. She’s an avid reader, loves spending as much time as possible outdoors, keeping physically fit, and continuing to participate in various community outreach events.
