Dental Care Experts are Just A Call Away
Our goal, as a professional dental team, is to listen and understand our patients so we can provide quality, modern dentistry in a caring, comfortable environment. This, we believe, will meet the needs of the people in our community.
Meet the Doctor
Robert B. Ottley D.M.D.
Dr. Ottley is amazed that 12 years have passed by since he moved from Florida and opened his practice here in Fayetteville. Before that, he practiced with his brother in his hometown of Pensacola. He was tired of the hurricanes and he has been enjoying the people and places of Middle Tennessee since his move.
Dr. Ottley's son, Alex, grew up in Fayetteville and graduated for LCHS and he is now attending The University of West Florida in Pensacola.
Another thing Dr. Ottley is proud of is his volunteer work at the Health Department treating adults with dental emergencies. The challenges of running a dental practice and helping friends that trust his experience will surely make another 12 years zoom by.
