Your Middle Tennessee Orthodontist

Dr. Katherine A. Hart Westphal

Dr. Hart was born and raised right here in Middle Tennessee, and that informs just about everything about her.

After graduating from Goodpasture Christian School just down the river in Madison, Dr. Hart enrolled at Western Kentucky University to pursue her Bachelor of Science degree. Then she was off to the prestigious dental program at the University of Tennessee, where she graduated with honors in 2009.

Because Dr. Hart was passionate about developing her education and expanding her skillset, she was naturally drawn to orthodontics, a highly specialized branch of dentistry requiring years of additional schooling.

After being accepted into the elite orthodontic residency program of the University of Tennessee Health and Science Center, Dr. Hart dedicated her life to the refinement of her craft.
