Dr. Rod Strickland grew up in Albany, Georgia, but he moved to Indiana before high school when his father was transferred. As an undergraduate, he studied molecular biology at Indiana University where he also participated in molecular genetics research. His research led to a co-authored publication in the prestigious journal SCIENCE. Because of his academic excellence, he was granted early acceptance into Indiana University School of Dentistry after only 3 years of undergraduate study.
Dr. Strickland has never stopped learning. He has pursued advanced education in cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). He has become one of their most highly trained and best-recognized graduates. In 2000, Dr. Rod Strickland was declared the overall winner of the “Dental Design Competition.” This first-ever competition sponsored by Dental Economics drew dentists from across the country to compete in many aspects of dental design. In addition to his overall first place, he was awarded first place recognition for office design and in high-technology integration.
He held an appointment as Faculty Practitioner for the Indiana University School of Dentistry for more than 10 years. Over 12 years of private practice he built a famous practice in Indiana that drew patients from across the region but decided that home was calling in the form of an offer from Dr. Brad Durham to join Beyond Exceptional Dentistry, so he moved to Savannah.
