Dr. Roehm has practiced orthodontics in Peoria, Illinois since graduating from Saint Louis University in 1979 and holds professional licensure in Illinois and Missouri. While private practice is where he has spent the majority of his career, he has had the opportunity and privilege to be involved in academia as well.

He was an Assistant Clinical Professor at Saint Louis University Center for Advanced Dental Education from 2001 to 2016. His area of special interest has been temporomandibular dysfunction. He lectured on functional occlusion and taught splint therapy to all resident classes and followed patients in the clinic and lectured on orthodontic systems and practice management.  In addition to his time spent with the residents at St. Louis University, he was also an adjunct professor at St. Francis Medical Center General Practice Residency Program in Peoria, IL.

He has been married to his wife Kathy for 43 years and they reside in Dunlap, Illinois. They have four adult/married children and twelve grandchildren.   He was joined in practice by his daughter, Melissa Roehm Stigall, in 2006.

He feels blessed to have had the opportunity to practice orthodontics, a profession he truly love.
