We Love You Back
If Dr. Buzz Nabers was ever one of Knoxville’s best kept secrets, that certainly is no longer the case. In fact, he has become quite the popular guy here in Knoxville, having just garnered two highly coveted honors: Best Cosmetic Dentist and Best Family Dentist.
Buzz, who much prefers this handle to “Dr. Nabers,” had this to say about the recent recognition: “Our practice has been built upon a relationship-driven philosophy. Over the years, I have been privileged to have many great mentors who stressed the importance of building relationships in order to make the clinical aspect of the practice thrive. When I was informed by Cityview that I was again being recognized, I was overwhelmed with gratitude–gratitude for the community I live in as well as the positive foundation upon which the relationships with my patients has been developed and cultivated. I want to pass along a sincere ‘Thank You’ to our patients and the Knoxville community for this wonderful recognition.”
Buzz completed his dental degree at The University of Tennessee in 1992, and has dedicated himself to the pursuit of quality, compassionate dental care. His passion has led him into the field of education, where he teaches dental seminars nationally.
Family is incredibly important to Nabers and his strong family support system has been instrumental in the ongoing success of his career. He is married to his supportive wife, Trish, and together they have three beautiful and successful daughters.
Growing up in Oak Ridge as the son of an orthodontist, Buzz knew at an early age that his calling in life was to help people “stay healthy and feel good about themselves.” He watched, and learned, from his father who, he says, “always put his focus on the health and well-being of his patients.” And what better way than to give the gift of a smile.
While Dr. Nabers is unique not just for his talent, but for his passion for dentistry, his real passion is the restorative/reconstruction work that he does. He describes this type of dentistry in much the same way renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright described his greatest work of art, the Guggenheim, where “form and function are one.”
Yes, reconstructive work can correct the challenges individuals have with worn or missing teeth. It restores their “function,” i.e., the ability to chew. It’s the “form,” however, that Buzz finds most rewarding. Smiles can bring a new confidence, a renewed sense of self, and an improved outlook on life. These physical changes can make a patient a different person, and that is what gives Buzz his greatest thrill.
