Our dental team is truly a collection of special individuals. Sure, they are all highly-trained and have years of experience, but most importantly, they are simply a friendly group of people committed to helping our patients enjoy themselves every moment they are under our care. You’ll learn to love them from the first time you call in to schedule an appointment! Read on below to learn more about the fantastic team here at Petty Dental!
Creating the comfortable “at home” feeling of Petty Dental has been my job since we arrived in Tullahoma in 1984. I am Carol Petty, wife of a great dentist. After spending many years both chairside as a Registered Dental Assistant and Treatment Coordinator, most of my work is behind the scenes supporting the team as we integrate new state-of-the art technologies to better serve our patients. Since I designed and contracted the construction of our office building, I continue to oversee building maintenance and decor. My interests include project management of any type; especially construction, cooking, nutrition, and alternative health. My most important focus is my family and honoring our Creator.
I am one of the voices you will hear on the phone as I work to help our patients utilize their dental insurance benefits. You will also see me chairside assisting Dr. Petty and other team members to help keep everything running smoothly and on time. I have worked with Dr. Petty for over 25 years. I grew up in Manchester but was able to attend the United States Air Force Dental Assisting Program while my husband was in the Air Force. I enjoy spending time with my family, three adult children, their spouses, and grandchildren while we share in church activities, singing, watching sports, and doing crafts.
Hello! I’m Logan from Manchester, TN and a dental hygiene graduate from Remington College. I am passionate about dental hygiene because I love having a positive impact on my patient's lives and helping them maintain a healthy & beautiful smile for a lifetime. I love getting the opportunity to have relationships built on trust with my patients, from dental hygiene education to impactful life chats. I love Jesus, spending time with my family and friends, the beach and anything outdoors. In my spare time you can find me at the lake with my husband, Chad, and our three dogs- Annie, Bella & Hank- and of course our families. Use your smile to change the world!
Hi! I am Shelby. After graduating high school in Manchester, I played softball on a scholarship at Motlow State Community College. I went on to Remington College in Nashville where I received my degree in dental hygiene. I joined Petty Dental as a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2015. I love going to the lake and spending time with my family and friends. There’s also never a dull moment with my chocolate lab, Levi.
I would like to introduce myself as I am the newest member of the Petty Dental Team. Having practiced dental hygiene for 39 years in Fayetteville and with Dr. Dale Hunter in Tullahoma, I was able to move with my patients to Petty Dental after Dr. Hunter retired in 2016. When I am not with my patients, I am loving on my two Pekingese dogs (and my husband) or volunteering as board member for the Humane Society of Lincoln County, as the secretary for the animal shelter, and as an organizer for fundraisers and adoption events. Besides animals, I enjoy landscaping and flower gardening.
I have been working with Dr. Petty since July 1996 as one of the Registered Dental Hygienists. I started out in dentistry as a dental assistant and then pursued a degree in dental hygiene from the Community College of Baltimore, being a native of Maryland. When not working with patients, I love traveling or being outdoors, whether it is gardening, fishing or kayaking.
