Dr. Brady C. Yost

    Hello friends and family.  My name is Brady Yost.  I grew up in the small town of Bancroft, Idaho.  I spent all my childhood and adolescent years working on farms, hunting, fishing, and participating in various sporting activities.  After high school I obtained my undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University-Idaho.  It is there that I met and married my wife, Lizbeth. Together we have 4 small children: Carter, Jocelyn, Kensley, and Emily.  After our undergraduate work we moved to Ohio where I obtained my DDS degree from The Ohio State University in June of 2010. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, mowing my lawn, assembling model airplanes/ships/rockets, and watching a good comedy.  Between the months of August and January, college football is life.  My loyalty lies with BYU (Brigham Young University).  You will quickly learn I am a die-hard cougar fan.  I am very active in my church and attribute all my blessings in my life to a loving Heavenly Father. 
    I am often asked, why Carthage? The first time my wife and I visited Carthage we both were pleasantly surprised at how much Carthage felt like home.  Carthage has a close-knit small town feeling that reminds us of what we love about our home towns.  I look forward to serving you, your families, and this community.
