Shallowford Family Dental Group with its dentists and staff have an excellent reputation in the community. I am excited to be a part of this great group of family-oriented dentists.

Dr. Dan Edwards is a native of Grand Rapids, Michigan and a 1999 graduate of Grand Valley State University with a Bachelor of Arts in History. During college, he studied history and culture abroad in St. Petersburg, Russia and was a member of the GVSU Laker Marching Band.

After a time in the work force, Dr. Edwards made a career change, attending UTC and then completed his dental training at the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in Memphis. Dr. Edwards was a recipient of the Harold Cloogman Scholarship three years in a row for academic excellence.

He is very excited about joining Shallowford Family Dental Group and serving his patients with quality care. “Shallowford Family Dental Group with its dentists and staff have an excellent reputation in the community. I am excited to join this great group of family-oriented dentists.”

Dr. Edwards enjoys spending time with his wife, Rachel, a local real estate attorney and Chattanooga native, and their daughter, Avery, and twin boys, Ben and Mason.

  • 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!
