Training & Experience Meet a Hometown Heart

Dr‭. ‬Donald Hooie graduated with honors in Memphis from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in 1987‭. ‬Each year‭, ‬Dr‭. ‬Hooie continues his general dentistry education with some of the most well-known clinicians in the country‭, ‬focusing on teeth whitening‭, ‬veneers‭, ‬dentures‭, ‬implants‭, ‬crowns and bridges‭, ‬composite white fillings‭, ‬non-surgical gum disease care‭, ‬single-visit‭ ‬root canals‭, ‬laser dentistry‭, clear aligner‭ ‬adult orthodontics‭, ‬and preventive dentistry such as thorough dental cleanings‭, ‬and oral cancer screening

Throughout his career‭, ‬Dr‭. ‬Hooie has completed approximately 15,000‭ ‬hours of continuing education‭, ‬averaging nearly 60‭ ‬hours per‭ ‬year‭. ‬His experience was gained while Dr‭. ‬Hooie was completing his general practice residency at the Portsmouth Naval Hospital‭ ‬in Portsmouth‭, ‬VA‭. ‬He treated a variety of patients and their needs while also handling sedation and general anesthesia for the medical team‭. ‬After six‭ ‬years in the United States Navy‭, ‬Dr‭. ‬Hooie transitioned to the Naval Reserves as a Lieutenant Commander‭. He then started his own practice‭, ‬fulfilling his dream of becoming a helpful‭, ‬hometown dentist just like the doctor he saw as a child‭. ‬He was drawn to dentistry because of how‭ ‬much he enjoyed helping people‭. ‬However‭, ‬Dr‭. ‬Hooie also loved dental technology and tools‭ ‬—‭ ‬which is still evident in his Crossville dental office today‭.‬
