Dr. David Fleming

Dr. David Fleming grew up in Akron, Ohio and attended Case Western Reserve University, where he received his bachelor's degree in psychology and his doctorate degree in dentistry. While still in dental school, Dr. Fleming was awarded a United States Army Health Professions Scholarship and was selected into the Army's one year advanced education in general dentistry residency program at Fort Carson, Colorado. This allowed him the opportunity to not only build upon his training in dentistry, but to serve Fort Carson soldiers as a general dentist for five years. His service at Ft. Carson (and temporarily in Kuwait) was greatly rewarded as the Army Dental Corps selected him to receive specialty training in orthodontics. This entailed an additional two years of education at the University of Louisville, where he earned a Master's of Science degree simultaneously with his orthodontic specialty training. These new skills were immediately put to use by the Army as Dr. Fleming was given the responsibility of opening a brand new orthodontic practice in Camp Zama, Japan for soldiers and their family members stationed overseas. After serving three years in Japan, and a total of 10 years as an Army Dental Corps officer, Dr. Fleming and his family returned home to Northeast Ohio.

Drs. Fleming and Wise prioritize time each year to attend numerous continuing education courses to stay current on the advances in orthodontics. The doctors and their team do not take lightly their responsibility to provide the best possible care for the patients who have entrusted their smiles to Fleming & Wise Orthodontics. Dr. Fleming and Wise are active members of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Cleveland Society of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association and numerous other organizations. They serve as orthodontic specialty advisors in a local chapter of a nationally-acclaimed dental study club in addition to his participation in a study club comprised of several orthodontist colleagues in Northeast Ohio.

Dr. Fleming and his wife, Debra, have three children - Brandon, Daniel and Nicole. They enjoy camping, mountain biking and skiing.

Dr. Wise attended the College of Dentistry at The Ohio State University and graduated Summa Cum Laude at the top of his class. He was also awarded the Callahan Award – the highest honor presented by the college.

After dental school, Dr. Wise served three years as a captain in the Dental Corps of the United States Air Force where he was hand selected to complete an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas. He practiced the last years of his Air Force career at Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Delaware where he was recognized by the Air Force and Army for meritorious service. He later received his Master's degree and Orthodontic Certificate at the University of Detroit Mercy. As part of his commitment to continuing education, he completed the coursework and all necessary requirements for American Board of Orthodontics certification.

Dr. Wise gives back to his community and profession by serving as an alternate delegate to the Ohio Dental association, lecturing and teaching dental residents at Mercy hospital's General Practice Residency program, serving on Akron Children's Hospital's Emerging Leaders Board, and taking the rigorous steps to have his research published in orthodontic journals.

Dr. Wise lives in Jackson Township with his wife, Amanda, and daughters, Sydney and Abby. He enjoys time with family and friends, golfing and most anything outdoors.
