He is very active in the Boy Scouts organization (Troop 95), with his sons and has taken two backpacking trips in New Mexico. He has also traveled to Africa twice to donate dental care in Tanzanian villages and the Angel House Orphanage with a group led by Dr. Lisa Alvetro. While there, he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.

Dr. Edelen enjoys golf, skiing, spending time with his family, and anything that has to do with the great outdoors. He is an avid fan of The Ohio State University Buckeyes and is proud of the family tradition of attending school there, which is where he and Julie met.
