“I grew up in Kentucky and attended Holy Cross High School in Louisville KY. From there, I attended Bellarmine University in Louisville KY and graduated with a Biology degree in 2007.

Being a dentist is truly an honor for me. Not only do I get improve the oral health of our patients, but it requires me to be a lifelong learner. I am very committed to providing the best care to our patients which requires me keep expanding my skillset by learning and improving procedures to make them more comfortable and efficient.

My wife Amanda, myself, and our son Tyson call Union, Ky home and we love everything that our community has offer. We are looking forward to helping you achieve your oral health goals.”

Dr. Sandra Derringer DMD

Learn more about Dr. Derringer
Dr. Sandy Derringer grew up in Lake Worth, a smaller city, on the South East Coast of Florida. She received her dental hygiene degree in 1988. After practicing as a dental hygienist just a few short years, she discovered her love for dentistry and decided to further her education. She completed her didactic requirements for dental school, moved to Louisville and earned her doctorate from University of Louisville School of Dentistry in 1997. In August 1998, Dr. Derringer opened her Dental Practice in the original Kroger shopping center in Union, KY. She practiced at this location for approximately 13 years, then constructed the building on US Highway 42 where the practice continues to thrive. Although Dr. Derringer sold her dental practice, she will continue her love of treating patients at the same location. Dr. Derringer passed the “handpiece” to Dr. Jason Ford on February 4, 2021. They discussed the various ways to join as dental partners for about 3 years, and was finally decided Dr. Ford to purchase the practice and Dr. Derringer to remain as an associate partner. She is so thrilled for Dr. Ford as he is a highly skilled, dedicated and compassionate dentist, who brings additional treatment modalities to patients such as sedation dentistry, dental implants and surgeries.

Dr. Derringer humbly recognizes she’s a “dental nerd” and continues her advanced studies in technologies and patient care each year. It’s important to her to invest in technologies to provide precise restorations and prostheses while using the most comfortable delivery system for the patient. For 24 years (and counting), Dr. Derringer thoroughly enjoys meeting, treating and developing rapport with her patients. Her professional affiliations are ADA, KDA, Northern KY Dental Society, CEREC Docs, Spear Education, Northern KY Top Dentists and Cincinnati Magazine Top Dentists.

This happy newly-wed lives in Cincinnati with her husband, Joe. Her daughters, Emily and Erica, reside nearby while they attend advanced and doctorate educations. Dr. Derringer gained 4 additional amazing stepchildren, AJ, Alex, Matt and TJ, that live in Florida, California and Missouri.
