160: Interview with dentist & practice owner, Dr. Talia Nutting


Dr. Talia Nutting has provided exceptional dental care in Knoxville since 2009. She has studied extensively on implant restoration at the Zimmer Implant Institute and with Biomet’s Synergy Program. Dr. Nutting has received intensive training on Cerec CAD/CAM technology, which allows the office to offer crowns in one day. She is also a member of the prestigious Kois Center in Seattle, Washington.

Dr. Nutting grew up just down the road in Kingston, Tennessee.  She was a hygienist for 3.5 years and then went on to study at the University of Tennessee, earning high honors at the College of Dentistry.  Dr. Nutting went to work as an associate at a practice in Knoxville, until she was convinced to buy a practice that was about 70% HMO.  After a divorce 2 years into ownership, Dr. Nutting pretty much gave up everything but her practice and started over.  She got off the HMO and got involved in airway. 

Dr. Nutting and her husband Marshall, along with their two children, reside in West Knoxville.  When not at the office, you can find her lending support to her children’s school and sports activities and making a point to hear great live music. She loves hot tea, coffee and the Rolling Stones.
