I have been blessed to be an orthodontist and share in the lives of so many wonderful patients. True joy in life comes from helping others, and as an orthodontist, I get to do that every day!

Beyond the Practice
Much of Dr. Callaway’s time away from the office is spent with his family. He and his wife Emily Anne have three children: Campbell, Swayze, and Sawyer. The couple stays busy chasing the soccer ball with all three children. Campbell really enjoys football, as well as working out; Swayze also plays basketball and tennis; and Sawyer appears to be the future golfer in the family. If the family isn’t chasing a ball around the field, they can often be found outdoors, where they enjoy hunting and fishing.
