dentist chattanooga dr ankar

I feel my greatest asset is my relationship with my patients. I truly make an effort to treat each person like family.

Dr. Charles V. Ankar is a Chattanooga native and has been practicing at Shallowford Family Dental Group since July 2002.

He graduated from Notre Dame High School and then received his Bachelor of Science from the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga. His dental training was completed at the University of Tennessee, Memphis.

“I feel my greatest asset is my relationship with my patients. I truly make an effort to treat each person like family,” says Dr. Ankar. When he is not at his practice, Dr. Ankar spends time at the Orange Grove Rehabilitation Center providing dental care to mentally and physically challenged patients.

He is a member of the American Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association and the local Chattanooga Area Dental Society.

  • My family and I would highly recommend SFDG. Dr. Ankar and his team always treat us well and we value his knowledge as a dentist. They try their best to make what is often a unpleasant experience less uncomfortable and pleasant. Dr Ankar is not only my dentist, he's my friend.

  • A few weeks ago I woke up with a terrible toothache. Shallowford Family Dental was the only Chattanooga dentist office I called that told me I could come in as soon as I could. This was my first cavity ever so I freaked out a little, but the team was super nice and Dr. Edwards and Mary Taylor did a fantastic job making me feel comfortable. Also due to their skill I was able to avoid getting a root canal!
