Lee R. Hendricks, DDS

I love the challenge of providing excellent dental care. I strive to exceed each patient's expectations in regard to comfort and satisfaction. This daily dedication gives me the drive to achieve excellence. I'm thankful for the sincere satisfaction I feel when I live up to these exacting standards I have set for myself.


I attended the Ohio State University College of Dentistry to achieve my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. I then completed my residency in general practice dentistry at Miami Valley Hospital.

I now engage in continuing education through many avenues, including the Misch Implant Institute, the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, Progressive Orthodontics, Spear Education, and Cosmetic Restorative Training. Continuing education is a critical element of my career. Staying abreast of new techniques and technologies allows me to offer my patients the best care, while keeping the practice of dentistry fresh and exciting for my staff and myself.

The Office

Our team is an experienced, talented group of professionals who are skilled at providing dental care and warm interactions with patients. They truly enjoy enhancing the patient experience. Remarkably, our 15 employees average 16 years of service on our team, with many of them serving 20 years or more. While we deliver dental treatment in a professional manner, we maintain a fun and relaxed attitude in the office, which allows our patients to relax and actually enjoy their visits.

At Home

I am a native Ohioan and I am proud to raise my two kids here with my wife, Sue. I have a passion for music, playing guitar and singing both as a solo artist and with my semi-professional band. I also provide music for many charitable events such as the American Heart Association Gala, the Juvenile Diabetes Walk for a Cure, the Special Wish Foundation Ball, and many more. I also like to stay fit by going to the gym, and I enjoy spending time at home with my family.

James Freeman, DDS

I have been practicing dentistry for 46 years, and love what I do. My life is centered on the health and well-being of my patients, and I strive for excellence in all that I do for them. I am proud of the team who works with me, and we continuously train ourselves in the most advanced treatments in dentistry. We all enjoy working together to make our patients’ experiences positive.

Education and Continuing Education

Prior to practicing dentistry, I attained my DDS degree from Ohio State University and my Dental General Practice Residency from Miami Valley Hospital. I consider my education a lifelong pursuit, and have participated in all forms of continuing education. I enjoy studying endodontics, restorative dentistry, oral surgery, pharmacology, and prosthodontics in addition to general dentistry.

As part of my continuing dental education, I am a member of several professional associations including Dayton Dental Society, Ohio Dental Society, and American Dental Association.

Outside the Office

I am originally from Delaware, Ohio, and have lived in Dayton for the past 40 years. My wife, Barbara, and I raised our two daughters in this area, and I am grateful for such a close-knit community. In my spare time, I enjoy SCUBA diving, waterskiing, traveling, boating, and spending time with my two wonderful grandkids.

Chris Coleman, D.D.S.

Born and raised in Dayton, Chris attended Wright State University for his bachelor’s in Biology, a Master’s degree in Human Anatomy and went on to complete dental school at The Ohio State University.  After dental school, Chris continued his education through a general practice residency in Columbia South Carolina. 

Chris chose dentistry because it serves people’s overall health and self confidence, allows him to interact with others and also provides the chance to give back to his local community. 

At Home 

He is engaged to his amazing fiancé Karly, and has 1 brother, 2 sisters and 3 nieces and 2 nephews.  When he is not in the office Dr. Coleman enjoys spending time with family, friends, playing golf and exercising. Dr. Coleman is also involved with and helping Good Neighbor House.
