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.
