Dr. Rich Ziehmer (Grinz Orthodontics) began his orthodontic training in July of 2003 at Saint Louis University’s Center for Advanced Dental Education, regarded as one of the top programs in the nation. During his residency at SLU, he had the opportunity to work with some of the leading clinical orthodontists in the country. He graduated from Saint Louis University in December 2005 with a Master of Science in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.
He was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and currently resides in Summerfield, North Carolina with his wife Gina and their daughter Zia. In their spare time, they enjoy traveling, cooking, and spending time outdoors. And during the best time of year, otherwise known as football season, he’ll be rooting for my Arizona Wildcats along with his other favorite team, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish!
