Meet Doctor Whaley



Dr. Whaley grew up in North Hollywood, California.  After receiving his Doctorate degree from Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine, he became a commissioned officer in the U. S. Navy and moved to San Diego, California where he was stationed at M.C.R.D. (Marine Corps Recruit Depot).  During this time he was mentored by some of the finest specialists in all aspects of dentistry; which was instrumental in ushering him into a new frontier of dentistry ... Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dr. Whaley opened his private dental practice in Encino, CA in 1982.  His dream to develop a dental practice of "understated elegance" flourished, catering to people of all aspects of the entertainment business of Los Angeles.  His cosmetic dental practice continued to grow for 14 years, when in 1995 he married Holly Hearn and moved to Nashville, TN.  There he established an Aesthetic and General Dental Practice in the Maryland Farms area of Brentwood, TN.

Welcoming Dr. Whaley to Nashville, were 40 of his patients who had previously moved from the Los Angeles area.  A great majority of these families were connected with the music industry and, with the shift happening in that industry, had moved from Los Angeles to "Music City".

The practice today consists of people from all walks of life.  Whether you are a recording artist, healthcare executive, or mother of 4, Dr. Whaley's desire is for you to have the best of dental health, with an attractive smile.  His entire team is dedicated to the advancement of Aesthetic Dentistry.  As an Accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry as well as numerous professional organizations, he takes pride in establishing one of the premier dental offices of Nashville.
