Dr. Nolin Connell
"I am native of Muscle Shoals, AL. I have returned back to North Alabama to serve and join the team that offers the highest caliber of dental care in the area. It is a joy to be back in the place I call home. I have one sister who lives in New York with my brother-in-law and niece. I graduated from Auburn University in 2016 with a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences with honors and a minor in Spanish. I then attended UAB School of Dentistry, where I graduated in 2020 with my degree in dental medicine. I have spent many years abroad in medical missions (including dominican republic, costa rica, and Guatemala), and I hope to use my skill and knowledge to serve underserved populations in the future. I am a member of the American Student Dental Association, American Dental Association, Alabama Dental Association, and American Academy of General Dentistry. My goal is to provide a fun and inviting atmosphere with my team, for all ages, from the second you park to the moment we complete your treatment. I am here to provide a great experience at the dentist as well as healthy smiles for a lifetime!"
