On behalf of the family, we appreciate the kind words of many during this most difficult time. Thank you also for extending understanding and sharing in their sorrow.

Kesler Truelove III, DDS, D.ABDSM, D.ASBA

Dr. Truelove is a third generation dentist who is committed to extensive continuing education. He spent many years sharpening his skills in the treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction and Craniofacial Pain Management at The Center for Advanced Dental Study in St. Petersburg, Florida and the Las Vegas Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry in Las Vegas, Nevada. He has dedicated himself for the past several years to the understanding and treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea, TMJ Dysfunction and sleep related breathing disorders.

Several years ago Dr. Truelove found himself near death. Though he had been a dentist for over 25 years he was unaware that he himself had Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea. It caused him to have a heart attack and he was immediately taken to the emergency room for surgery. After being released and subsequently diagnosed with OSA soon thereafter he knew it was his obligation to inform and educate others about the perils of this insidious life threatening condition. Today he dedicates himself only to the care of those afflicted with OSA and TMD.

Dr. Truelove is the proud father of three vivacious young men: Maxwell, Charlie, and Gabriel. He lives in South Bend, Indiana with his wife, Odion, and enjoys being part of this cozy Michiana community where he has worked and lived since 2003. He grew up in Chesterton, Indiana and adores his family who live throughout Northern Indiana. He was a 1988 graduate of the Indiana University School of Dentistry after receiving his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Indiana University, Bloomington in 1984.
