Martin Nunn, DDS
Most kids are ready to leave the dentist's chair soon after they sit down. But, when Dr. Nunn was a young boy, he was fascinated by dental visits, taking note of everything going on inside and outside his mouth. Combined with his love of science and interest in healthcare, he decided to become a dentist.
In 2000, Dr. Nunn graduated from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry and moved from his native state to Nashville, Tennessee. Three months later, he acquired the 30-year practice of Donald G. Osten, DDS and re-established it as Nunn Family Dentistry.
Dr. Nunn left dental school with much more than a diploma - it was there that he met his wife, Gina. Together they have two children, Andy and Mary. "I always think about them when i head to the office," Dr. Nunn says. "They give every day a purpose."
To Dr. Nunn, dentistry is about more than telling people to floss. "I love that I'm always learning, whether it's about new technology or people," he says. "General practitioners are in and out with patients in 10 minutes. I get to spend time with people and find out about their kids, their parents, where they're from, and what they do. That's interesting to me."
Outside the office, Dr. Nunn can be found at home with his family, playing lunch lady at his children's school, coaching his son from the sidelines of youth soccer fields and basketball courts, enjoying his daughter's ballet recitals and choir concerts, and either playing sports or watching them. He's a fully dedicated husband and father...except for a few hours on Saturdays between August and January, when his beloved Crimson Tide takes the field.
Dr. Nunn is a member of the Nashville Dental Society, Tennessee Dental Association, and American Dental Association and has a fellowship from ICOI, the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
