In college, I’ve stayed involved in singing groups ranging from choir to a small bluegrass band. I grew up playing piano and singing and added guitar to my repertoire.

I’m on this amazing journey of having my own practice, Renew Dental, and making my dream practice come to life.
Ironically, I experience dental anxiety myself, and I always request nitrous oxide sedation during my own dental treatment. I completely understand where patients are coming from, and I will always go out of my way to create a dental experience at Renew Dental that is welcoming, inviting, comfortable, and accommodating. As an adolescent, I had congenitally missing teeth, which created gaps in my smile, and I was teased as a child. After visiting an oral surgeon and orthodontist I finally had a smile I was proud of and built up the confidence to join my cheer squad. It’s come full circle since now I’m helping to build that same confidence I received in others!
I’m a bit of a perfectionist and I take pride in my craft, and promise to be your personal cheerleader when it comes to dental health. Dentistry is not a job, it’s my hobby!
I also believe in being a lifelong student. I believe it is important to continue my education, as dentistry and technology evolve, so I can give the best care to my patients.
I truly appreciate having the opportunity of being your dentist, and getting to know you! Now sit back, relax, and don’t fear because I’m here! And if you have any questions, just give us a call!
Best, Dr. Gray

I am beyond excited to join Dr. Gray’s team at Renew Dental and I look forward to being your dentist!
I grew up in a small Kentucky town before going on to attend Centre College in Danville, KY, where I was a
member of the Women’s Golf Team and stayed involved in singing groups ranging from choir to a small bluegrass band. I received my Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry in 2019.
Following dental school, I completed a one-year internship in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Illinois Chicago. I am certified in the Comprehensive IV Sedation course so I may better accommodate patients who have severe dental anxiety and to improve patient comfort during difficult or complex procedures.
After finishing my OMFS internship in Chicago, I knew I wanted to live in the Greater Nashville Area to be closer to family. It was important for me to find a dental office that aligned with my treatment philosophy: patient-oriented care.
That was easy to find with Dr. Gray and her team at Renew Dental, who strive to create the ultimate dental experience. It’s just an added bonus that Dr. Gray is a fellow Cards alumna!
I have a passion for learning and I like being challenged to improve my knowledge and skills. Being a member of the American Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry, I have exposure to continuing education courses.
My interest in oral surgery pushed me to complete an extra year of training after dental school where I was able to gain experience in tooth extractions, hard and soft tissue biopsies, and IV sedation. I plan to build on that experience in the years to come.
Outside of the office, I love staying active playing golf and tennis, and going to the gym. I grew up playing piano and singing, and added guitar to my repertoire. I just recently became an aunt to a beautiful baby girl!
