Cosmetic Dentist David W. Harr, DMD, FAGD
Dr. David Harr has been practicing in the Nolensville area since 2000. He grew up a few miles from the practice's current location and attended Franklin Road Academy from kindergarten through high school. After high school, Dr. Harr obtained his Bachelor's of Science degree in Biology from Centre College. At Centre, he played football and baseball while being a Young Life leader and a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity. Dr. Harr entered dental school at the University of Louisville, where he spent one summer in Tuba City, AZ working for Indian Health Services and two summers researching a faster way to screen for bacteriocins to make new antibiotics. After graduating with his Doctorate of Dental Medicine, Dr. Harr completed a general practice residency at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center. During his residency, he completed rotations in internal medicine, general anesthesia, dental treatment in the operating room, and oral surgery.
Dr. Harr has continued to seek education to further his skills and remain on the cutting-edge in the field of dentistry. He completed a ten-month course on dental implants at the Medical College of Georgia. Since then, he has received Associate Fellowship status in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Dr. Harr has also been awarded Fellowship status in the Academy of General Dentistry, or AAID. Both awards require standardized testing, hundreds of hours of continuing education, and for the AAID, an oral exam and defense of completed cases. Dr. Harr was the first dentist in middle Tennessee to perform an FDA-approved periodontal procedure called Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, a procedure which helps treat moderate and advanced periodontal disease using a laser-assisted protocol. Dr. Harr has been performing this procedure since 2006. Currently, Dr. Harr is pursuing accreditation in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and his Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry. He has currently achieved Sustaining Member status in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
It is Dr. Harr’s goal to help his patients maintain the health and function of their mouth and teeth while also achieving proper aesthetics in the most efficient and least-invasive way available. This way of looking at dental treatment often requires taking the longevity of dental work, life span of the patient, and changes that occur during aging into account when treatment plans are being developed.
Dr. Harr lives in Williamson County with his wife, Tracy, and twin boy and girl. He enjoys snow skiing, cycling, and playing baseball.
