Dr. Mike’s Storytime
How Children’s Dental Group Became Awesome
Dr. Mike graduated from University of Tennessee Dental School in 2002, and he began his pediatric dental residency in 2003.
Dr. Mike met Christi while in residency at University of Tennessee Dental School. Christi was working as a dental assistant at UT Pediatric Dentistry at Crittenden Hospital. While working together, Christi introduced Dr. Mike to her sister, Jammie. Very quickly, Dr. Mike fell in love with Jammie and with the beautiful state of Arkansas.
Dr. Mike decided he wanted to become a part of the community and eventually was lucky enough to become a part of Jammie’s family. In 2005, Dr. Mike and Jammie got married, and in 2008 they opened Marion Pediatric Dentistry with Christi. It was truly a labor of love.
As word got out that there was an awesome pediatric dentist in Marion, the business grew. In July of 2013, Dr. Mike was teaching part-time in the pediatric dental residency program at University of Tennessee and met Dr. Shauna Tanner. He insisted that she come to see the office in Marion. Once Dr. Tanner saw the office and spent time with the patients, she was hooked! Dr. Tanner said that the community in Marion was very similar to the small town in Mississippi where she grew up.
