Why Did You Decide to
Become a Dentist?
Dr. Budendorf really enjoyed visiting his childhood dentist, and he saw firsthand the positive impact she had on all of the families she cared for and the community at large. He realized over time that he wanted to do the same for people in need – and the rest is history!
Where Did You
Dr. Budendorf received his undergraduate degree from Baldwin-Wallace College (now University) in 2009. He then moved on to The Ohio State University, completing his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2013.
