As is common with many young adults, Dr. Mitchem explored other career options before he decided to go to dental school.

But those who come to Dr. Mitchem for help maintaining and improving their smiles are more than just patients. As you'll find when you visit Mitchem Dental, we regard our patients as friends.
A graduate of Washington University School of Dental Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, Dr. Mitchem returned to his hometown in Champaign, Illinois with his wife Kenna and two sons, Kyle and Clay, to open a general practice.
