MidWest Ohio Dental Care opened its doors in August of 1991 under the name, Charles J. Edelen, DDS, Inc. Dr. Edelen was settling in Sidney, with his wife, Julie after spending five years in the Western United States with the US Public Health Service. He served in the Indian Health Service on reservations in Montana and Wyoming and gained broad-based dental experience with focus on children's dental care, oral surgery, and restorative dentistry.
As his practice grew, additional office space and parking was needed, and a major office renovation was completed in 2001. A nation-wide search was conducted for a dental associate to join the practice to assist with the rapidly expanding patient base. Dr. Damen Patel became an associate in 2002, and a full partner in 2003. The practice adopted the new name Shelby Family Dental Care that year. In 2004, the practice assumed the business of the retiring Dr. David Fields.
Shelby Family Dental continued to grow in patient-base and services. In 2011, Dr. Edelen and Dr. Patel acquired the Piqua-based dental practice of Dr. Andrew Jackson and assumed the name MidWest Ohio Dental Care to encompass their patient base.
The practice continues to grow and thrive, offering a broad range of services from basic, preventative care to orthodontic work and mini implants for dentures.
