Meet Your Dentists

Eric A. Hosek, D.D.S., P.C.

My dental adventure began at age 5 visiting our family dentist of 4 generations in Cincinnati, Ohio. Dr. Carroll spent hours letting me play with his amazing miniature toys. I decided this was what I wanted to do when I was big. My father was an engineer at Ford and taught me how things worked. My parents were buying broken appliances and machines for me to take apart to see how they worked. This prevented me from taking everything in our home apart! Today I am playing with more advanced toys. Our Cerec 3D printer makes your crowns in one visit. There is a local company, OWL, that I am helping with a 3D additive printer for dental applications. The fun never ends.
