After graduating, he worked for five years as an associate for two general dentists in central Pennsylvania, until he opened his own dental practice in Lewisburg, PA in 2001. Dr. Bohn sold his thriving dental practice in 2009 to pursue a lifelong dream of living in a warmer climate, and he and his wife Melody, together with daughters Katelyn and Kelsey, moved to Cary.
Having practiced in a rural area for most of his 20+ year career, Dr. Bohn has expanded his abilities to include a range of more complicated procedures as he found that patients typically wanted to be treated in the same office whenever possible. He is proficient in root canal therapy, difficult extractions (including most impacted wisdom teeth), dentures and he has been surgically placing dental implants since 2001. A lifelong member of the Academy of General Dentistry and a member a local chapter of the Seattle Study Club (that meets monthly), he enjoys continually learning new techniques and procedures.
