When given the opportunity to stay in the military but no longer be involved in patient care, Dr. Nawiesniak choose to retire and pursue private practice.
He chose middle TN in his search for a dental practice after retirement because he wanted to live in a place where faith, family and community were strong.

Dr. Nawiesniak has a passion for dentistry and is always learning new and better ways to provide quality care to his patients.
