Dr. Justin Shiflett

Dr. Justin Shiflett graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 2016. He received his undergraduate degree from Malone University in Canton, OH, where he competed on the baseball team. He started all four years as an infielder, setting the career mark for sacrifices.

Since completing his dental education, Dr. Shiflett has taken additional courses to advance the services he can offer patients and stay up to date on the latest technologies. Shiflett Family Dental is proud to offer Invisalign, root canal therapy, and other procedures in addition to those provided by Dr. Ralston.

Dr. Shiflett and his wife, Leah, are high school sweethearts and have been married for eight years. Dr. Shiflett is an avid fly fisherman and takes pleasure in chasing a variety of species with fly and conventional tackle. Leah works as a wellness director and enjoys working out in the fitness center, playing competitive volleyball, or visiting with friends and family in her free time.

Justin and Leah both have a love for the outdoors, and together they enjoy traveling, hiking, biking, running, kayaking, volleyball, and softball. They also love supporting local shops and restaurants and adore their two cats: Alex and Jackson.

Dr. Stephen Ralston

Dr. Stephen Ralston graduated from the Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 1979 and has served the Clintonville community for over 40 years. Dr. Ralston took over for his family dentist, Dr. Berg, and hopes to pass the baton similarly. Dr. Ralston has specialized training in occlusion and gnathology and has a passion for oral rehabilitation.

Dr. Ralston was born and raised in Columbus and remains active in his local church and other social groups. He plays the guitar and is a loyal Ohio State Buckeye fan. He has been married to his wonderful wife, Kristi, for 24 years, and they are truly two of the nicest people you could ever meet. They particularly enjoy spending time together in their garden and having dinner with good friends.

A Healthy Smile Is Just a Click Away.
Skyler C

I’m the third generation to have exclusively went to Dr. Ralston. Now Dr. Shiflett has taken over the practice and the practice is just as it used to be, even down to the famous treasure chest I loved as a child. Hands down the best in Columbus and I will continue to go here for years to come.
