For Dr. Will, dentistry runs in the family! His sister is a dentist, his parent’s met in dental school, and his grandfather was also a dentist. Although he explored other career paths, Dr. Will always came back to dentistry because he loves that dental work gives him the ability to help people while working with his hands. As an active, adventurous person, Dr. Will felt that he needed to have freedom and flexibility with his work, and owning his own practice fit the bill perfectly.
Dr. Will attended University of Miami for his undergraduate work before graduating from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in 2014. He went on to complete his surgical and sedation residency at The Foundry AEGD in 2015. After completing his education, he was eager to get started in the field and began working at his father’s practice. When the time came, Dr. Will was honored to take over the practice as his own.
When he is not helping people reach the peak of dental health, Dr. Will can be found reaching the peaks of mountains. He loves getting outside and exploring in nature; He has climbed Mt. Rainier in Washington, Mt. Elbrus in Russia, Mt. McKinley in Alaska, and numerous volcanoes in Ecuador. He even plans to climb Everest one day soon!
