What Sets Us Apart

What sets us apart from other dental offices is our compassionate approach. We create relationships with our patients that are based on trust & mutual respect to inspire a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.

We start with your goals, desires & expectations to create a custom treatment plan that best fits your needs. Your time is valuable & your dreams are important. We take the time to listen to our patients & get to know you as a person before starting treatment.

We want you to feel warm & welcome when you come to our office. You are most definitely not just a mouth or set of teeth, but a valued member of our practice who deserves the time & attention we strive to provide. You will come to understand just how much of a difference there is in the dental care you receive when you come to our relaxed & no-pressure office.

We are not here to “sell” you on anything other than committing to excellence in your oral health. We want you to love coming to the dentist!

Excellent dental care starts with building relationships & trust, but it is also important that we, as your clinicians, dedicate ourselves to constant learning. We train & partner with the finest dental professionals in the area. The result of our comprehensive approach to dentistry is outstanding outcomes & fewer emergencies.

History of the Practice

Fairlawn Dental Care Dentists

From left to right in the picture is the living legacy of our practice: Dr. Mark C. Rigby, Dr. Roy Case, Dr. Robert E. Smith & Dr. Frank McCormish.

The history of our practice extends deep into Akron’s history. The practice was founded by Frank “Bud” McCormish’s grandfather, who was a dentist. Bud’s father inherited the practice from his father & Bud ultimately took over the practice & successfully established it as the premier dental practice in Akron.

Elsewhere, Dr. Roy Case ran a successful & respected dental practice in Akron. Eventually, Dr. Robert E. Smith purchased Dr. Case’s practice & merged with Dr. McCormish.

Together, they ran a highly respected & successful practice until Dr. McCormish’s retirement. Now, Dr. Mark C. Rigby has come into the practice to continue its five-generation-long commitment to excellence & outstanding dentistry.

Dr. Case & Dr. McCormish are still patients of the practice as well.
