Why I Became a Dentist
Dr. Hart’s main reason for becoming a dentist is very simple: he just likes working directly with other people! Whether someone’s struggling with a toothache or has been hiding their teeth for years because of shame, he strongly believes there’s no better feeling then seeing them smile again once their treatment plan is finally complete.
In particular, Dr. Hart enjoys the challenge of working on patients who have serious dental anxiety. It always makes his day when they arrive nervous, only to then leave saying “I don’t know why I was worried!”
My Educational Background
After graduating from Rhodes College, Dr. Hart pursued his dental doctorate at the University Tennessee Health Science Center. He also attended a Comprehensive Implant Residency Program through McCracken Implant Education and has extensively studied Moderate Conscious Sedation at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.
My Life Outside the Dental Office
A Nashville native, Dr. Hart married his wife Jessica in 2005, and they have a wonderful daughter named Lauren. One of his greatest joys is watching her succeed at various gymnastics competitions, dance performances, and flag football games! Some of his other hobbies include cheering on the Nashville Predators, attending concerts with his family, riding bikes, playing basketball, swimming, and hanging out with the neighbors.
Dr. Hart is also always up for exploring his quaint town and finding out more about why its nickname is “the dimple of the universe.” Whether he’s shopping at a local boutique or eating at a neighborhood café, he thoroughly enjoys the genuine, down-to-earth, kind people throughout the community. Plus, it’s even better when he runs into a patient who’s excited to tell those around them that he’s their dentist!
