Dr. Ruth attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte for his undergrad, earning a BA in chemistry with a minor in biology. It was during this time that he developed a love for applied sciences and helping people achieve overall health.
Dr. Ruth moved to Richmond upon graduation and joined the dental program at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry.
Following dental school, he began working towards his orthodontic certification at Saint Louis University Center for Advanced Dental Education in Missouri. Dr. Ruth is passionate about giving back to the community.
He has generously donated his time over the years, providing dental care for at-risk youth and families who lack finances for routine dental care.
