Dr. Gaunt is originally from Atlanta, GA. He received his B.S. degree from Auburn University and his Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry. Following a brief time in a Birmingham, Alabama office and passing the Northeast Regional Dental Board, he began a private practice near Williamsport, PA.
Dr. Gaunt spent most of his eleven years at that practice narrowing his focus and post- graduate education to the aesthetic restoration of teeth. In keeping with his philosophy to restore teeth to their most natural condition possible and as conservatively as possible, Dr. Gaunt decided in 1995 to remove silver fillings from his treatment options. In fact, whenever possible, he tries to use metal-free alternatives to restoring teeth. In 2002, Dr. Gaunt brought this philosophy and his enthusiasm for dentistry to Dothan, AL, which was closer to home. This is where he and his wife Lisa decided to raise their three children: Drew, Aubrey, and Emery.
Dr. Gaunt is known by our patients to have a genuine desire for helping people obtain healthy, beautiful smiles. This attitude is easily evident in his ability to carefully listen, educate, and accurately discern his patient's individual wants and needs.
