James R. (“Randy”) Bird, DDS: Completed his undergraduate studies in biology before attending the Indiana University School of Dentistry. Dr. Bird is continually learning and routinely completes more than four times the amount of continuing education required in order to stay at the forefront of the dental field. He has received advanced training in implant dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics, full-mouth reconstruction, and occlusion and occlusal rehabilitation. Additionally, Dr. Bird is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA).
As a dentist, Dr. Bird’s ultimate goal is to help his patients keep their teeth for as long as they live. He truly enjoys working with individuals and helping them improve their health and maintain their smiles. He states:
“I enjoy working with and helping people. That is one reason I like being a dentist. I recognize that my patients are unique individuals who have placed a great deal of trust in me and my team. This gives me an opportunity to help people improve an important aspect of their life. I was never a fan of the dentist when I was young. Because of that I can appreciate patients who would rather be somewhere else than in the dental chair. That is why we make our office a fun place to be, for children and parents alike.
I respect each person’s opinions and ideas. For me, clear and open communication is key when it comes to discussing treatment. I enjoy taking the time to chat with each patient and answer any questions. It is important to me that every patient is fully aware of their options for care.”
Dr. Bird has an amazing wife, with whom he has five children. Of the seven members of his family, three are dentists and one is a hygienist. Outside of the office, he enjoys spending time with his family and participating in water sports.
