Dr. Claudia Minadeo-Fox earned a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from The Ohio State University. She subsequently received her D.D.S. from Case Western Reserve Dental School and graduated 4th in her class. Dr. Minadeo-Fox was also awarded membership in Omicron Kappa Epsilon, the National Dental Honor Society (membership is based on scholastic attainment and dental professional potential). She’s also incorporated holistic practices as part of her dentistry, including nutritional advice, stress reduction, and mercury-free fillings.

Dr. Minadeo-Fox is a general dentist who places a strong focus on preventive care and education while delivering a positive experience for the entire family. She’s committed to the latest technology and techniques for maintaining a radiant smile. Her patients always receive superior customer service! Her practice philosophy centers around a health and wellness model and the importance of the “the oral systemic connection,” and how whole body health and oral health are intimately connected.

To remain familiar with the latest technology and new developments in dentistry, Dr. Minadeo-Fox regularly attends dental seminars and conventions. She is also a member of the Academy of Oral Systemic Health, a professional organization of dentists that believe in the connection between oral health and systemic health. She also regularly visits local schools, where she enjoys speaking to children of all ages about the importance of taking care of their teeth. At these school visits, Dr. Minadeo-Fox presents such a good case for coming to the dentist that she frequently hears children came home and said, “Mom, I want to go see Dr. Minadeo-Fox at her office!”

Dr. Minadeo-Fox practices what she preaches. Holistic dental care is a comprehensive whole-body approach to dentistry that reaches far beyond treating symptoms that manifest in the mouth. The nutritional aspect of her holistic dental care is a direct result of her journey into professional figure competing, which required a vigorous work-out schedule and a strict adherence to proper nutrition. She believes that improving the general health and wellness of her patients is intrinsic to helping them maintain optimal health and to fight off disease.
