Meet Our Doctor

I am so fortunate to be an orthodontist. It really is the best job in the world. I get to work with a great team and everyday we create beautiful smiles for the nicest people—our patients. The process that we go through together, and the results we achieve, makes it difficult to say goodbye when treatment is complete. It is truly a joy to provide beautiful smiles and see my patients grow and succeed in so many ways.

Outside the Office
I am originally from Canada, born and raised just outside Toronto, Ontario. At 17, I moved down to the Chattanooga area to attend college. It was here where I fell in love with the mountains, rivers and also my future wife, Stacey.

After spending seven years in Birmingham, Alabama, for dental school and orthodontic residency, Stacey and I were thrilled to return home to Chattanooga! (We also brought back a couple of souvenirs - our children Ben and Katie Beth!)

When I’m not enhancing the views of my patients, I enjoy fly fishing, camping and hiking, water and motor sports and generally just spending time outdoors, taking in all that this Scenic City has to offer!

Meet Our Staff

Hello, my name is Tathia (pronounced like “Tasha”), and I am responsible for caring for our wonderful new patients joining our practice as well as day-to-day office management.

Learning new skills, interacting with the patients and seeing the final results and happiness when treatment is complete, are what I really enjoy about my work. That, and the friendly and fun atmosphere that my coworkers bring to the office!

I have been married to my best friend since 1996 and we have three wonderful sons. My favorite things to do in Chattanooga are going to Coolidge Park and the walking bridge.
