Meet Our Team
Dr. Matt Clark
Originally from Union City, Dr. Clark grew up wanting to be a dentist. He entered college close to home at the University of Tennessee-Martin, never changed his course of study, and stayed true to his plan, graduating with high honors and a degree in cell and molecular biology. He then went on to Memphis to attend and graduate from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry.
Upon graduation, he moved to his wife’s hometown of Dyersburg to work in a pediatric dental office, which is the probable cause of his residual "goofiness" after relocating to Chattanooga. Being able to work and learn from the dentists at Dyersburg Pediatric Dentistry was a remarkable experience.
In his free time, Dr. Clark loves spending time with his wife of 5 years, Kari. And although he does not have any children, he does have a miniature schnauzer named Gracey who is his "precious baby girl." He loves to eat weird food and is a huge fan of the Duke Blue Devils.
Kari - RDH
Kari is originally from Dyersburg and moved to Chattanooga in May of 2016. She attended the University of Tennessee at Martin, where she obtained the prerequisite coursework for dental hygiene. She continued her education at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis. While at the UTHSC, she graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene.
Kari has been practicing as a dental hygienist since 2007. When not working, she loves spending time with her husband Matt and her miniature schnauzer, Gracey. Her other hobbies include reading, playing in a trivia league, baking, and watching college basketball (let’s go, Duke!). She’s very excited to now be a Chattanoogan and looks forward to meeting all the patients very soon.
Lesley - RDH
Lesley has a bachelor's degree in economics from UT Knoxville and an associate's degree of applied science from Chattanooga State in dental hygiene. She has been practicing in the dental field for 14 years. In her spare time, she enjoys swimming, biking, and hiking. She and her husband have two boys (who floss every day!).
Sherry - RDA, CDA
Sherry is from the East Brainerd area but currently lives in North Georgia. She graduated from Chattanooga State with a dental assisting certificate in 1987. She enjoys spending most of her time attending sporting events with her son. She also has three dogs that occupy the rest of her time.
