Scott Sayre, D.D.S.

Dr Sayre“I have been practicing dentistry for over 30 years. In that time, I have gained a better understanding of my patients, their fears and their treatment. They often come to my office feeling anxious, as though there is no possibility of having a comfortable experience. But I’m confident I can help erase my patients’ fears and provide gentle, advanced dentistry they can count on, so their teeth can cease to be a problem in their lives. That’s why I became a dentist, to give people beautiful smiles and greater satisfaction with themselves.”

Rebecca Donaldson, D.M.D.

Dr Donaldson“I decided to become a dentist when, at age 13, my parents took me to the orthodontist. I was fascinated by the way my teeth were becoming straighter and straighter. I thought it would be wonderful if I could change someone’s life by changing their smile – just as my dentist had done for me.

I attended Blackburn College where I played basketball, ran track and majored in biology. I graduated with honors and continued my education at Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine.

After completing my residency in general practice, I joined the U.S. Navy and was stationed at Camp Pendleton, California. I was a lieutenant in the Dental Corp and served for four years before leaving the U.S. Navy to pursue private practice. I maintained an office in Mt. Adams for six years where I focused on cosmetic dentistry. I have consulted with Dr. Sayre many times over the years and I am pleased to join our two offices. I look forward to meeting you.”

Patricia Hannahan, D.D.S.

Dr Hannahan“I grew up in Cincinnati, went to high school at St. Ursula Academy, and then set off to the big city of Chicago to attend Loyola University. It was there that I settled on my decision to practice dentistry.

I was attracted to many aspects of dentistry: the artistry, the ability to work with my hands, and most importantly the ability to help people on a very personal level. I spent four years in Columbus, Ohio, while attending The Ohio State University for dental school.

I am very excited about joining this wonderful practice with Drs. Sayre and Donaldson and working with all of its great patients!”

Drew Meyers, D.M.D.

“My path to a career in dentistry is non-traditional. I graduated from college wanting to pursue a career in teaching and coaching. Subsequently, I spent the next six years teaching and coaching at the collegiate level. However, I always had an interest in healthcare, working with people, and my hands so I made a career change in my late 20ʼs and decided to apply to dental school.

I spent the next four years at the University of Louisville in dental school and then an additional year in a general practice residency program at University Hospital. I look forward to working with a great team of skilled practitioners and meeting all the patients.”

Sara White, D.D.S.

“I have always enjoyed getting to know people and working with my hands, and I knew at an early age that I wanted to be a dentist.  During college at DePauw University, I ran cross country, cycled and majored in biochemistry. I also became an EMT and worked part-time for an orthodontist, both of which reinforced my passion to help others and my desire to become a dentist. After DePauw, I spent four years at Indiana University School of Dentistry.

Upon graduating from dental school, I joined a practice in western Indiana that specialized in treating children with severe dental decay.  Many of the young children came to our practice feeling very anxious, and I loved that I could alleviate the children’s fears by getting to know them and making them comfortable with me and our office.  We moved to Cincinnati in 2010, and I practiced several years at an office in Milford, providing general dentistry to patients of
all ages.

I joined Advance Dentistry because they go above and beyond to provide their patients with positive, no-fear dental care. I look forward to meeting you and providing you with a comfortable dental experience!”
