Meet Our Doctors
Dr. Joe Dietrich D.M.D.
Thank you so much for visiting our website today! I’m an Alliance native, graduating from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Louisville. I attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio where I met my wife, Courtney. I then went onto Dental School at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, followed by my orthodontic residency at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY. I’ve completed the second phase of my orthodontic board certification and plan to complete the final phase in the near future. It was a pleasure to join my dad in private practice in July 2011. We truly enjoy being together, both in and out of the office.
Courtney & I have three children; Allie, Jake and Macey. Allie enjoys dressing up with a tiara and playing princess, which yes, I oblige. Jake’s life goal is to fight the bad guys with swords which is much more in my wheelhouse. Macey is most happy exploring all the dangers of our home, including stairs, electrical outlets and sharp corners. She keeps us on our toes! My family is active at St. Paul Catholic Church, where the kids attend school. My wife and kids enjoy family dance parties, the kids love to hike and have campfires, and we generally just love giving them wonderful “kid” experiences. I love to spend time with my family, play poker with my buddies, and watch the Cleveland sports teams (THANK YOU CAVS!). Professionally my highest priority is providing our patients with a confident smile that they will enjoy for years to come. Nothing is more gratifying than watching a patient’s personality blossom as their smile takes shape and is completed. Our second priority is to have fun! We have games, contests, charity drives, special activities for our Kids Club members, and more. Thank you for reading about us and hopefully visiting us soon. We know you have many choices in your family’s orthodontic care and we would be honored if you chose us.
Dr. Thomas Dietrich D.D.S.
I’m also an Alliance native, graduated from Alliance High School, and then attended Westminster College for my Bachelor’s degree. At that time, I met my future wife, Karen, also an Alliance native and a graduate from Miami University. I then attended Ohio State University for dental school and the University of Rochester in NY where I received my orthodontic certificate. I am board certified through the American Board of Orthodontists (ABO). I opened the first office, in Alliance, in 1980, and we’ve been serving the greater Canton area since 2001. In 2011, Dr. Joe joined me in private practice and now runs it full time. It is truly a joy to work with my son, watching him become an orthodontist I’m honored to work with.
We raised three terrific kids; Tom, Katie and our office’s very own Dr. Joe. They each are married and I have 6 wonderful grandchildren; Drew, Matthew, Ryan, Allie, Jake and Macey. I love watching them grow. They’re each at different stages in life and there is never a dull moment with them. Additionally, I am proud to have worked with the Craniofacial Center of Akron Children’s Hospital on cleft palate cases for 22 years. Later in life, I joined the University of Rochester’s faculty in their Orthodontic Department. It has been satisfying giving back to a profession that I love, along with advising the new faces of my field. Personally, I have taken a recent interest in hiking, including the Half Dome at Yosemite, fishing, skiing, and spending time with my family. I am also a member at Regina Coeli Catholic Church in Alliance.
The doctors are members of:
