Dr. Norvell grew up in Lebanon, TN and attended Western Kentucky University for his undergraduate degree. He received his dental degree and specialty prosthodontic training in from the University of Tennessee. His desire is to deliver dentistry that restores lives one appointment and one patient at a time.
He had the opportunity to watch his dentist deliver a full-mouth rehabilitation to a woman who had victoriously recovered from addiction. Seeing her immediate reaction of joy and gratitude changed multiple lives that day. The very idea that restoration and life change could be delivered through dentistry set an inextinguishable fire in Nick to make that his career goal.
Dr. Nick went on to complete his dental training at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and was accepted into UT’s three-year Advanced Prosthodontic Residency. In residency alone, Dr. Nick had life-changing opportunities. He was able to care for pediatric denture patients, plan and deliver full-mouth crown and bridge treatment to a military veteran and future physician with a lifetime of dental anomaly, and bond with countless patients through hours of chair-side therapy. It was during this time that he discovered his love of dental laboratory technology which led to him to become a Certified Dental Technician. Upon successful completion of his residency training, Dr. Nick returned home and entered private practice in Brentwood, Tennessee.
After practicing in several other offices, Dr. Nick and his wife, Kami, began planning what would become Restoration Dentistry. Restoration gradually became the living, breathing vision for what Dr. Nick believes patients deserve. He wants to create a space where people are always treated with kindness, gentleness, and dignity. He wants to deliver dentistry that restores lives one appointment and one patient at a time. Restoration Dentistry is the story of life change and Dr. Nick is honored by each patient who chooses him for their journey.
Dr. Nick, his wife, Kami, and three children, Charli, Tavian, and Carson, live in Mt. Juliet.
