Joshua K. Gunnels, D.D.S.
Dr. Gunnels was raised in Mount Juliet. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, TN in 2001. After working for a year, he decided to pursue another career. Josh wanted a people-oriented profession that encompassed his science background and a love of working with his hands. Dentistry has been a perfect fit! After adding a few biology courses, he attended the University Of Tennessee School Of Dentistry in Memphis, graduating in 2008. Dr. Gunnels felt a strong desire to return home to Mount Juliet in hopes of starting a dental practice where he could serve the community with integrity, compassion, and gentle care.
On a personal note, Josh and Jenna were high school sweethearts! While Josh was in dental school in Memphis, Jenna was attending Western Kentucky Dental Hygiene School. They were married a month after both graduating in 2001. They have two children, Aubrey and Addison. Josh enjoys hiking, fishing, staying active, and helping at their local church. He is always looking for new ways to grow and expand his knowledge in the field of dentistry.
Dr. Gunnels is a member in good standing of the following dental organizations: American Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association, Academy of General Dentists, and the Nashville Dental Society.
