Dr. David Storie, DMD

Why Orthodontics?

Dr. David Storie grew up in a military family with his father serving as a military dentist for years. Perhaps this sparked his interest in smiles!

Education and Experience

Dr. Storie graduated with honors from Fort Campbell High School before earning his bachelor’s degree from Western Kentucky University. He then attended the University of Kentucky Dental School where he obtained a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree.

Upon entering active duty, Dr. Storie continued his education at the Army’s one-year General Practice Residency at Fort Riley, Kansas. This additional training allowed him to gain experience in all dental specialties. He further honed his skills while serving two overseas tours in Germany as a general dentist.

When Dr. Storie returned to the United States, he got his specialty certificate in orthodontics and a master’s in oral biology at Fort Knox and the University of Louisville.

He’s served as Elder and Chairman of the Board at the First Christian Church in Johnson City and frequently takes mission trips around the world putting his knowledge and skills to good use.

Dr. Storie and his wife, Nancy, have three children.
