Meet Dr. Callie Doyle, DMD
Dr. Callie Doyle ‘s mission in life has always been to care for others–a mission she fulfills every day in her Ooltewah dental practice. A lifelong learner and lover of both art and science, she had the dream of becoming a dentist at the age of five years old. She began her career in dentistry during undergraduate college as a dental assistant before returning to school and obtaining her Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the clinically renowned University of Louisville. She has found that her art training at an early age helped with her discerning eye in cosmetic cases and excellent hand skills she uses daily in her dental career, and her undergraduate training as a youth counselor has helped anxious patients get through and even enjoy their dental appointments. She feels extremely blessed to be able to use her talents everyday to serve others in the community in this capacity.
Dr. Doyle continues to be active in many dental organizations, including the Chattanooga Area Dental Society, Tennessee Dental Association, American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and the Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation. Dr. Doyle strives to be the best clinician she can be, attending hundreds of Continuing Education courses from the top lecturers in dentistry across the country. Her new state-of-the-art office in Ooltewah allows her to use the most up-to-date techniques in all areas of dentistry, assuring each guest that they are getting the best and most comfortable dental care available. Her mission is that everyone in her office is completely comfortable, free of oral disease and confident with their smile!
Meet Dr. Kara Hancock, DMD
Dr. Kara Hancock recently moved to Chattanooga from Louisville, Kentucky and has joined the Doyle Family Dentistry team! She completed her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the same institution as Dr. Doyle, the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. In addition, she shares the same passion of serving others in the most comforting way possible.
Dr. Hancock has a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Minor in Spanish from Western Kentucky University. With her Spanish experience, she studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina and enjoys conversing with Spanish speaking patients.
Dr. Hancock grew up helping others from an early age in activities such as Girl Scouts, lifeguarding and being a camp counselor. More recently, she has participated in several dental service trips to St. Elizabeth, Jamaica where over four hundred patients received treatment each week. Dr. Hancock aspires to use that same passion to care for the Doyle Family Dentistry family alongside Dr. Doyle at the most encouraging and relaxing dental environment in the community.

Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.
