He opened Indianapolis Family Dentistry in 1985. A graduate of Indiana University School of Dentistry, Dr. Farthing hails from Princeton, IN, but spent some of his formative years in Littleton, CO, where he attended high school.

And it seems that both Dr. Farthing and Dr. Tepner are interested in chemistry—Dr. Farthing used to teach high school chemistry.
