Dr. Chave was born in Wooster, Ohio and raised nearby in the small town of Apple Creek. Dr. Chave completed his undergraduate degree in 1995, receiving his bachelor of science degree In Exercise Physiology from Kent State University. After working for the same company for over 5 years he made the decision to further his education and apply to dental school. He was accepted into The Ohio State University’s incoming dental school class in 2001, and graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in June of 2005. After graduation Dr. Chave worked for a dentist in Columbus for over 2 years before coming to help out in Logan. His experience of growing up and living in a small town made Logan very comfortable for him. He very much enjoyed the small town atmosphere and the great people, which led him to buying the practice in Logan in July of 2008.
