Our Team

Paul J. Minnillo DDS, Inc was founded in 1957, when Dr. Paul Minnillo Sr., a Western Reserve graduate, moved from Cleveland to Elyria and started his own practice. In 1991, after graduating from the Ohio State University College of Dentistry, Dr. Paul Minnillo Jr. joined his father at the practice.

Our practice has changed with the times, incorporating the latest tools, techniques and technology to provide our patients with up-to-date, state-of-the-art, comfortable treatments. However, our goal has remained the same: for our patients to be 100% satisfied with the care they receive with us and to leave our office with a healthier smile they feel confident in!

Dr. Paul Minnillo

Dr. Minnillo received his Bachelor’s of Science and Doctorate in Dental Surgery degrees from The Ohio State University. Joining his father’s practice in 1991, he established our modern cutting edge dental practice. According to him, “Practicing modern dentistry in a comfortable, casual office setting has been a pleasure for both patients and me. Helping the dental phobic patient lose their anxiety and become confident in the dental office setting is one of the most rewarding accomplishments that I get to experience.” Having a love for the outdoors, Dr. Minnillo enjoys fishing, boating, hunting, hiking, mountain biking with his two boys, and camping with his family.
