Dr. Bo and his wife Minette both grew up in Clarksdale, Mississippi, 75 miles south of Memphis, Tennessee. They both graduated from Millsaps College in 1996, and Dr. Bo attended dental school at the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in Memphis from 1996-2000. After completing dental school, Dr. Bo and Minette moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where he worked in a dental office that primarily treated children. It was there that he discovered his passion for pediatric dentistry. Dr. Bo then completed an additional two-year residency program to specialize in pediatric dentistry at the University of Tennessee in Memphis.

Dr. Bo has treated children from around the world. He wants all children to have the opportunity for good oral care and to learn that going to the dentist is not a scary experience. He has been a part of several mission trips to help kids in pain and to spread the love of Jesus Christ. In 2000, Dr. Bo went on his first trip to Russia; in 2002, he went to Chile; in 2004, Africa; and in 2007, Nicaragua. He also treats children from Wears Valley Ranch in Sevierville, TN. 

Dr. Bo is active in the dental profession. He has a specialty license to practice pediatric dentistry in Tennessee and he is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), and the Tennessee Dental Association (TDA).

Dr. Bo has three daughters Marley, Emory, and Reed. He stays busy watching them play soccer, run cross country and track. Dr. Bo also enjoys hunting, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors with his family and friends in beautiful East Tennessee!
