The Russell Family roots in Annapolis run deep. The family has lived and worked here since the 1700’s. While part of this time found family members working as watermen, recent history has established the Family in the maintenance of Annapolitans health. The Russell’s beginnings in health care can be traced to Dr. John T. Russell who after finishing medical school in 1909 came back to his home in Eastport to treat patients and make house calls as one of only four physicians in the area and later served on the first staff of Anne Arundel Medical Center. His two sons, Carl P. Russell and my grandfather, Oneal F. Russell Sr. both attended the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery and graduated in 1927 and 1934, respectively. Both of their sons, John Russell and my father, Oneal F. Russell, Jr. followed in the footsteps of their fathers and also attended Dental School graduating in 1968 and 1975, respectively. With a desire to continue the family tradition I graduated from University of Maryland Dental School in 2006 and then completed a residency at the Baltimore V.A. Hospital where I served as Chief Resident before returning to Annapolis. It gives me a great sense of pride to continue to serve Annapolitans and I look forward to welcoming you into our Family practice.
