Dr. Ditcharo received his dental degree from the University of Mississippi. He then went on to complete a one-year residency program in advanced dentistry at Nevada University School of Medicine, where his interest in orthodontics began. After two years of operating his own private dental office, he felt drawn to orthodontics, and so in 2007, he entered the post-graduate orthodontic program at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City.
As a result of his general dentistry background, Dr. Ditcharo is at ease treating patients of all ages. He has a focus and appreciation for overall dental health and how it affects each person. He understands how orthodontic treatment impacts not only a person's smile, but also their overall facial balance, TMJ function, and airway.
Dr. Ditcharo has completed both Part I and Part II of the American Board of Orthodontics examination process. He is a member of several national and local dental organizations, including the American Dental Association, the American Association of Orthodontists, and the Tennessee Association of Orthodontists. He is committed to excellent treatment by furthering his knowledge of orthodontics through attending continuing education courses throughout the year.
Dr. Ditcharo is supported by his loving wife Jennifer. They have been blessed with two wonderful children, Dylan and Eden. Apart from orthodontics, Dr. Ditcharo enjoys landscaping, fishing, live music, and activities with his church.
