Well, Kettering and Centerville are wonderful suburbs and are also in Montgomery County. So don't confuse the county with the city (proper) of Dayton.

I'd personally choose Kettering of Dayton's suburbs because it's relatively affordable (compared to Oakwood anyway), has a lot of shopping and restaurants (Trader Joes, Mama DiSalvo's, etc), is a short drive from the city, while also being on the southern side of the area where you can get to the Dayton Mall, Dorothy Lane, Whole Foods, etc.

I'd agree with Nat510 on Kettering. It's a great central spot.

Fairborn is closer to Dayton and has similar taxes and neighborhoods.
Both Xenia-City and Fairborn-City charge fairly hefty local income tax. However, the townships surrounding these cities don't have a local income tax. Xenia School District (a huge swath of land, covering multiple townships) does charge 0.5% "school district income tax"... which is, to reiterate, an income tax - not a property tax. To my knowledge, said tax is assessed on pension-income, dividends and capital gains.

Property taxes percentage in the townships is typically around 2%. So, a $200K house (a typical township house of commodious proportion, situated on some acreage), which would be assessed at around $150K, costs around $3000/year in taxes.

Consider east Kettering around Wilmington Pike/Swigart/Burtchdale/Irelan/Bonnie/Arrowhead streets and Rean Meadows neighborhood on the other side of Wilmington. The whole area south of Stroop Rd & east of Wilmington is very nice and lots of homes like what you describe.
