Dentist, Dr. Jon Runion, Races in Pelotonia® to Raise Funds for Cancer Research

While I am so proud to have finished the ride, I know the real work doesn’t stop until we reach our goal to find a cure for cancer.

Respected Columbus, OH dentist, Dr. Jon Runion, recently participated in the three-day Pelotonia® cycling experience, dedicated to funding life-saving cancer research. Dr. Runion’s passion for proper health runs through everything he does, both in his hobbies and in his work. Dr. Runion’s practice, Runion Dental Group, focuses on full-body wellness, emphasizing to patients that poor oral health can have long term effects on the body’s overall health, such as leading to diseases like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

Pelotonia has raised $15.4 million for cancer research this year alone, and $199.3 million in total since its conception in 2008. 100 percent of every dollar raised for Pelotonia goes directly to funding cancer research. Pelotonia works hand in hand with the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James), a 21-story, 306-bed cancer hospital. OSUCCC – James brings doctors and researchers close together to work towards a cure and provides patients with innovative, science-based treatments.

Pelotonia riders can choose from multiple routes with varying distances, from 25 to 100 miles. This was Dr. Runion’s second year participating in the 100-mile Pelotonia bike ride. His route began in Columbus, OH and traveled to Gambier, OH. “While I am so proud to have finished the ride,” Dr. Runion explains, “I know the real work doesn’t stop until we reach our goal to find a cure for cancer.”

Dr. Runion’s practice, Runion Dental Group, provides services beyond standard dental care in an effort to ensure that patients are taking care of their overall wellness. The practice consistently invests in the most advanced technology, providing patients with the highest standard of care. In addition to general family dentistry, Dr. Runion and his fellow dentists offer dental implants, Invisalign®, BOTOX®, and oral pathology screenings.

For patients who need multiple treatments to restore oral health, the practice offers full mouth reconstruction. Full mouth reconstruction consists of treatments customized to meet the functional and aesthetic goals of the individual patient. Treatment may involve tooth extraction, dental implants, gum disease treatment, or orthodontics like Invisalign. For every full mouth reconstruction, the goal is to restore the patient’s oral health in order to prevent future oral or systemic diseases.
