Randall received his undergraduate education at Washington University, St. Louis and his dental degree from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. After graduating dental school he attended St. Louis University for his orthodontic residency. Randall opened his first office in June 1994 immediately after completing his residency and now has two offices, Swansea and O'Fallon. He also taught at Southern Illinois University as the Section Head of Orthodontics from 1995-2000.

Randall served as president of the Illinois State Dental Society in 2018-2019 and was chair for the ADA Council on Dental Benefit Programs. Currently, he serves on the AAO Council on Orthodontic Programs.

He has been married to Annette for almost 30 years and they have three daughters – Grace, Gabrielle and Gillian. In his spare time, Randall likes to participate and watch motorsports and go skiing with his family.
