Meet the Team

Instructors & Doctors

The best education comes from having the best teachers.

We know a thing or two about dentistry. The dental assisting school was founded by Cumberland Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics (CPDO), formed by a group of dentists with the mission to provide quality dental care. They, along with a several other general and pediatric dentists, come from all walks of life to bring you the best dental knowledge and discipline you’ll find in Tennessee.


However, being a great instructor comes with its own set of skills. Our teachers have worked and gathered experience from a variety of dental practices, and have trained and instructed many other dental assistants. They have trained some of the best in the field, and now they’re ready to teach you!

Lori Hoge

Clinical Instructor

Dental Assistant


“l am a mom or two very busy, sports-loving boys and I have been married to my wonderfully supportive husband for 13 years in August. In our free time we love to get outdoors and attend just about any sports event (roll tide!).

With nearly 20 years experience in the field of dental, my passion for all thing dentistry has only grown. Having worked in most dental specialties, I have come to realize that I love the role of instructor the most. Working in the classroom not only allows me the opportunity to share my enthusiasm with the next generation of dental experts, but to also stay up to date on the most recent advances in this amazing field.”
