Dr. Kent Underwood has been a trusted and beloved orthodontist caring for the Powell community since 1998. In 2016, Dr. Underwood formed a partnership with two other trusted orthodontists to create Trio with the specific intention of being able to spend more time with patients.
While the name may be new, Dr. Underwood and his team continue to provide the same trusted orthodontic care that patients in Powell have come to expect. He remains the sole proprietor and lead orthodontist at his Sawmill Parkway location.
Dr. Underwood has always been one to stay ahead of the curve and, often, be the one paving it! That’s why our Powell office offers the latest and greatest when it comes to orthodontic technology.
Originally from Rochester, New York, Dr. Kent Underwood came to Ohio to attend college and that is where he met his wife, Amy. After graduating from Bowling Green State University, Dr. Underwood went to dental school at the Ohio State University and knew from those early days in dental school that orthodontics was where his talents and interests were focused. While in dental school at OSU, he was impressed with the excitement of the patients who came to the University’s orthodontic clinic. That excitement was motivating to him and made it clear that orthodontics was his passion. After his residency in orthodontics at Virginia Commonwealth University, Dr. Underwood returned to Ohio where he has been in practice since 1998.
Dr. Underwood is thankful to have the opportunity to work in such a unique profession and be a part of so many patients’ lives. Dr. Underwood says, “I am so grateful to have the opportunity to treat an amazing group of patients. I enjoy working with kids, who make up the biggest group of patients. I feel I have the opportunity to help mold their lives and in exchange, I learn from them, as well. I view my patients as part of my family.”
When he’s not at work, Dr. Underwood’s favorite way to spend his time is hanging out with his wife, 2 children and his 2 labs, Finn and Sawyer. He enjoys running, fly fishing, boating and almost any outdoor activity. He is also passionate about community service. Depending on the season, you can find him cleaning up local rivers with an environmental group, helping collect household hazardous waste or ringing the bell for the Salvation Army at Christmas time.
Dr. Aaron Rose attended Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and then completed dental school at the University of Kentucky’s College of Dentistry. After dental school, Dr. Rose practiced general dentistry in West Chester, Ohio for a short time before attending Saint Louis University to pursue his orthodontic training. He completed a Master’s thesis on dental esthetics, and presented research at the national convention for the American Association of Dental Research.
Dr. Rose returned to the Buckeye State in January 2014, bringing with him the expertise of the latest technology practiced here at Trio Orthodontics. His favorite part of coming in to work each day is having the opportunity to meet new patients and getting to experience the development of these relationships as individuals pursue their ideal smile. Dr. Rose says he feels “truly blessed by the opportunity to practice orthodontics and be a part of the team at Trio Orthodontics.”
In his free time, Dr. Rose enjoys playing sports, coaching basketball, and cheering on his Kentucky Wildcats. During his residency, he learned to play the guitar, which has become a challenging, yet entertaining endeavor. An avid runner, Dr. Rose completed his first marathon in 2015 and looks forward to completing many more.
