After graduating from Indiana University School of Dentistry Summa Cum Laude in 1980, Dr. Fairchild served his residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at the Indiana University Medical Center and associated hospitals. Dr. Fairchild has shared his knowledge and skills with the Northwest Indiana community since 1985 before teaming up with Dr. Stevenson in 2009.

Out of the office, Dr. Fairchild spends time with his wife, Michelle, and their two daughters, Lauren and Amy, at their Crown Point home. His creative side comes out in his love for fishing, boating, and woodworking.


The look in the mirror of having teeth again, I can describe it as no less than incredible.
