John was born in Okemah, Oklahoma (home of Woody Guthrie) and was destined for a life in the oilfields. However, after his parents divorce, his mom relocated him to Tulsa. As a result he graduated from Tulsa Edison in 1989 all the while spending weekends in the oilfields working alongside his dad, Philip.
John attended Tulane University in New Orleans as a Biology Major and graduated with a dental degree from THE University of Oklahoma in 1997. He and his wife Gretchen moved immediately to Henryetta, OK to begin working as an associate dentist, with a special focus on Straight Wire orthodontics. He trained under one of the best general dentist-orthodontist mentors, Dr. Robert Gerety, and later bought his practice. After working 11 years in Henryetta, a special opportunity came his way – a chance to work in the oilfield afterall, due to his father’s ailing health. Within 7 years John had drilled wells, bought production and assumed his father’s position of President at Landers Oil and Gas in Okemah, OK. Upon his father’s passing in 2015, John began transitioning back into dentistry even before the oil company was sold. Today John performs children’s dentistry with his best friend, David Freet, DDS in Tulsa and sees adult patients at the office of Michael Toole, DDS. In his spare time he serves as chairman of the board of the Philip E. Landers Foundation and operates the most fun transportation service in Tulsa, TulsaPink.limo which has two pink limos rolling around the mean streets of T-Town. He and his wife of 20 years are raising three teenagers together, his middle with cerebral palsy. John enjoys traveling, volunteering and mentoring. You can reach him at [email protected]
