Meet Dr. Edward Hesse

In recent years I have significantly cut back my working schedule in preparation for my ultimate retirement. It has been my pleasure and priviledge to serve you over the past 45 years in the Ross area. I have formed friendships that will always be special to me. I have met third and even fourth generations of many of patients' families, and have enjoyed every moment of my career. I cannot thank you enough for your loyal patronage.

New in 2018

Effective January 1, 2018, Dr. Christopher French became the new owner of Ross Dental Group. I will continue to work as an associate under Dr. French one or two days a week, and you will continue to see the same familiar faces around the office. I have utmost trust in Dr. French and know he will take excellent care of you and your family in the years to come. 

Education and Continuing Education

I attended the University of Cincinnati for my undergraduate degree, and The Ohio State University for my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. After dental school, I joined the US Navy and served a year in Okinawa and a year in Newport, Rhode Island.

I have always loved any new technology that benefits my patients. To keep current with new innovations, I take classes on everything from the latest methods and materials of restoring or replacing teeth to total-body wellness and helping to resolve sleep issues. It is just exciting to be able to help patients be healthier and feel better about themselves by improving their smile.

Outside the Office

I was born in Northern California but my parents moved to Cincinnati when I was two months old, so this is really my hometown. I have lived in the wonderful village of Glendale since 1982.

I have a son who pastored a church in Wisconsin for more than 11 years and has recently taken his wife and family to Berlin, Germany as missionaries.  They have three sons. My daughter has been a permanent resident of Germany for many years. She has two daughters and a son. I was delighted to be present for the birth of my latest granddaughter.

When I’m not in the office, I can most often be found on the golf course, bike trail, or driving around in my convertible. I also enjoy photography, hiking and camping in my RV. Church has always been an important part of my life, especially smaller couple's Bible study meetings during the week. I am also involved in a group called Care Companions, which allows me to visit people who are lonely at West Chester Hospital. We share stories or just a smile, and it brightens all of our days.
