Hello! I’m Dr. Alex Pentino, most of my patient’s call me Dr. Alex. I’m a family and cosmetic dentist practicing in St. Clairsville, Ohio, and we created this blog as a way for us to provide an additional educational resource for our patients. I live in Wheeling, WV with my wife, Shaye, and our dog, Dyna, who we adopted from the Belmont County Animal Shelter. She can be seen running on the treadmill in this YouTube video. I’m a Wheeling Park, Bethany College, and West Virginia University grad, and in my free time I enjoy golfing, playing soccer, and running with my wife and dog. I’m a football fan and I root for the Buckeye’s, the Mountaineer’s, and the Steeler’s. I became a dentist because I enjoy both the problem solving and artistic aspects of dentistry, and I want to make going to the dentist a more positive experience. I hope you find this website and blog informative and helpful, and I look forward to seeing you in the office. We’re also on Facebook.com/pentinodental, Twitter.com/pentinodental, and Flickr.com/pentinodental, so if you’re on these social sites, look us up, we’d love to connect with you.
