Jarrod Mihalic EFDA
Jarrod is so excited to be a part of the Whispering Pines Dental team! He joins us having 13 years of experience in the field. After graduating Amherst Marion L. Steele High School, Jarrod went on to further his education at Case Western Reserve University earning his EFDA title in 2005. Being an EFDA, or expanded function dental auxillary, allows Jarrod to do advanced procedures such as placing restorations for our patients. Jarrod is a lifelong sports fan. When he is not rooting for his home teams- Browns, Cavs, Tribe- he is participating on many teams ranging from basketball to softball to bowling. Jarrod is also a family man who enjoys spending time with his wife Laura- an RN at Mercy Hospital- and their German Shepherd Sheba and cat Nemo. Jarrod is looking forward to meeting all of you!
