Meet Our Dental Team – Columbus, OH

Compassionate Care for You and Your Family

Our staff turnover rate at Mick Family Dental Care is extremely low; it’s not at all uncommon for team members to stay with us for years. That means that you’ll soon become familiar with the faces that work at our practice, so you’ll always have someone that you feel comfortable coming to with your questions and concerns. To get a head start on getting to know the talented individuals on our staff, read the brief biographies below.

Dr. Walter Mick

Dr. Walter Mick received his bachelor’s degree in zoology in 1983 from Miami University in Oxford, OH. Upon completion, he enrolled at The Ohio State University School of Dentistry, completing his DDS degree in 1987. With more than 30 years of experience as a dentist near Columbus, OH, he continues to exude the same compassion for helping others achieve healthy, beautiful smiles.

Apart from his educational background, Dr. Mick has also completed advanced study programs, one of which is the Mini-Prosthetics Residency with Spectrum Dental Society in 2014.

When he’s not in the office, you can find him spending time with his family as well as running, weightlifting, boating, fishing, and embracing all types of outdoor water sports.
