Dr. James Haldeman
Dr. Haldeman graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Biology prior to his DDS degree from The OSU, College of Dentistry. He then attended The Medical College of Toledo where he completed a General Dentistry Residency. The residency program provided Dr. Haldeman with advanced education and training in all aspects of Restorative Dentistry, with an emphasis on aesthetics and function.
Dr. Haldeman entered private practice in the Clintonville area of Columbus before moving to north Worthington in 1991. Dr. Haldeman accepted an invitation to join the Worthington Dental Group in 2016.
Dr. Haldeman is a life-long learner and challenges himself to frequently enroll in courses that teach the latest techniques, procedures, and technologies in dentistry.
Dr. Haldeman’s latest addition to his skills is the diagnosis and treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. He is passionate about helping people who have this very serious and sometimes fatal condition. The majority of people do not know they have Sleep Apnea, but there are many signs and symptoms. Someone who snores loudly, wakes up frequently, and awakens feeling tired and sleepy might have the condition. When diagnosed, an oral appliance that maintains the airway during sleep might be the solution to restoring restful sleep, preventing serious health consequences, and even saving a life.
As an experienced family dentist, Dr. Haldeman enjoys treating patients of all ages.
He consults with each patient concerning the patient’s long-term dental health goals. This is vital to designing a dental treatment plan to help them achieve their goals. The type of dental treatment that is provided today will impact the quality of oral and general health for a lifetime.
Dr. Haldeman is a member of the Academy of Sleep Medicine, the American Dental Association, the Ohio Dental Association, and the Columbus Dental Society. He is a founding member of the Central Ohio Study Club.
In his free time, Dr. Haldeman enjoys family time with his adult sons, volunteers in his community, and enjoys playing golf.

“Just wanted to thank you for (on very short notice) working in my mother-in-law today; we so appreciated Toni and Dr. Cunnningham’s quick repair of her broken bridge. It is this kindness, professionalism and expertise that mean so much to your patients. We will continue to recommend your office to anyone in need of dental care.”
“Everyone is so pleasant and helpful. There is no way my experience could be any better!! Especially the office staff.”
“Dr. Cunningham is a fantastic dentist. Over time he has re-done all of my old crowns and added new ones giving me a beautiful smile. He works with an in- house lab so everything is prompt and perfect. Most of his staff has been there the entire 12 years I have been a patient so they are very accomplished and and it speaks well of him as an employer.”
