Meet Dr. Duckworth
Dr. John Duckworth received his training in Periodontology at Harvard University. After he graduated from dental school, he was awarded a research fellowship from the National Institutes of Health. He was awarded the Orban Prize for Periodontal Research for his postdoctoral research. This award is given to the graduating periodontal resident who has done the best research in the world for that year. Dr. Duckworth then served as a full-time faculty member in the department of Periodontology at the Ohio State University College of Dentistry. At Ohio State, Dr. Duckworth performed periodontal research and trained students to be excellent dentists.
Dr. Duckworth has been in private practice, improving his patients’ oral health, since 1988. He is the former president of the Ohio Academy of Periodontics and director of the Robert Davis Interdisciplinary Study Club. He continues to provide continuing education to dentists and state-of-the-art care to his patients in all aspects of his passion: periodontology.
Dr. Duckworth is trained to provide you with the best possible health for your teeth and gums. His first priority is to save your teeth and make them last a lifetime. When the circumstances create a situation where the teeth cannot be saved, he has 20 years of experience with placing, repairing and maintaining dental implants. Dr. Duckworth’s goal is always to create healthy gums, functional chewing for foods, and a beautiful, natural smile.
Dr. Duckworth welcomes the opportunity to meet with you and discuss your individual needs.

“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.”
