Dr. Wilkinson attended the University of California, Irvine, and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at Loma Linda University. He decided to become a dentist because it allowed him to work with his hands while also expanding his love for science. He says the instant gratification of seeing someone’s smile cared for is both professionally fulfilling and personally rewarding.
His continuing education certifications include Endodontics, Implant Placement and Restoration from the Garg Implant Seminars, Conscious Sedation Certification, Advanced Aesthetics in Veneer, and Crown Placement
Before opening Shallowford Smiles, Dr. Wilkinson practiced as an associate elsewhere. His deep dedication to his patients led him to venture out on his own, giving him the freedom to provide more personalized care. His belief in listening carefully to your concerns, offering the best options available, and delivering care in the most effective and comfortable way possible has become the philosophy of our Chattanooga practice.
Outside of work, Dr. Wilkinson provides his services by volunteering at Hope for the Inner City, which brings affordable dental care to the underserved communities of Chattanooga.
When he isn’t busy seeing his patients, Dr. Wilkinson spends as much time as possible with his two beautiful children. They both attend St. Nicholas School, where Dr. Wilkinson helps coach the rock climbing team. His family is active and on the go, either with rock climbing, horseback riding, or family festivities.

The experience of going to Shallowford Smiles has always been great for me. The staff has always been pleasant & helpful when answering questions. I'm especially grateful for their hygienists (Sarah is awesome!) & how great they are at what they do!
This is the place to go. This dentist is the best I have been to in my long life. He was able to diagnose an issue that another dentist caused. I have a sensitive mouth and I don't even feel when he gives the shot to get work done. Wonderful experience.
This is by far the best dental office I have ever been to. I have never been a fan of the dentist, but they don't judge. They told me what was necessary, what I needed most, and let me choose what I could afford, first. Josie lights up the office with her kind, empathetic personality and Dr. Wilkinson is gentle and he speaks in terms everyone can understand. Everyone here is kind and professional and I wouldn't trade them for the world. I hope they know how amazing they are.
