MEET DR. TOM GARDENHIRE
Dr. Tom Gardenhire is a Chattanooga native and graduated from East Ridge High School in 1974. He then graduated with honors from UTC with a BS in Biology. During college, Tom was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. It is notable that all three doctors at Shallowford Family Dental Group were members of the Sigma Chi Fraternity during their college years.
Tom completed his dental training at the University of Tennessee Dental School in Memphis in 1982. During his senior year, Tom won the anesthesiology award. He has been practicing dentistry in Chattanooga since 1982.
Tom founded Shallowford Family Dental Group in 2002 with a vision for excellence in dentistry practiced by a group of doctors in the same office. “I enjoy the variety of personalities working together in our practice,” says Tom. “It’s exciting to see different temperaments, talents and convictions working toward a common goal of caring for people. We have a true family atmosphere among the staff and patients.”
Can’t say enough great things about this office! All the doctors are awesome and take great care of you! The staff and hygienists are also incredible! A great place for your families dental needs!
My family and I would highly recommend Shallowford Family Dental. Dr. Ankar and his staff 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 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 staff 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!
Very comfortable environment. Very nice and professional staff. Highly recommend.
Absolutely amazing practice! Sally and Dr. are just great! Would recommend to anyone looking for a great dental office! 🙂
