Christel WestmorlandD.D.S.

Dr. Christel Westmorland grew up in middle TN, but now calls east TN her home. She attended the University of Tennessee at Martin and received a bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in business administration. While she was at Martin, she knew she wanted to go into the health field, but wasn’t sure where she could help the most. She discovered dentistry while glancing through college magazines. She had never even considered dentistry, then did some research and observed at her dentist’s office and decided dentistry was the profession for her and never looked back.
She graduated from the University of Tennessee Health Science School of Dentistry in 2004. She completed a 1 year General Practice Residency at the Memphis VA Medical Center in 2005. She’s been in private practice since 2005, practicing in Newport, TN since 2007. “I may not be from Newport, but this is home for me.” Her favorite aspect of being a dentist is getting to see someone with a low self esteem and give them the knowledge to take care of themselves which many times begins with their oral health and then watch their self esteem and confidence go up exponentially from where they were when you first met. “You get to be a part of that family’s life. You see them every 6 months or more and bask in their accomplishments and suffer with them through heartache. My patients are extended family.”
Dr. Christel has devoted herself to continuing education, placing the health of her patients as her top priority. “I take 100s of hours of continuing education a year, because dentistry is always improving materials, technology, and techniques, and I want to bring that knowledge back to Newport, TN and give my patients the best care possible. Dentistry is a profession where you never stop learning.”
In 2019, Dr. Christel became a fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. She was required to take a 4 hour test and participate in 500 hours of differing subjects of dental continuing education.
In 2015, Dr. Christel and Dr. Micah expanded their family and team and welcomed Leo, a 16 lb. miniature poodle. Leo is a certified therapy dog and is great with anxious patients or people in general. He loves playing with his “foxie” and lying in the warm grass. He happily goes on hikes with Drs. Micah and Christel, sniffing and saying hello along the way.
