Dr. William Bates

An Alabama native, Dr. Bates grew up in the rocket city Huntsville, AL. After graduating from Grissom High School, he moved South to Birmingham for his undergraduate studies at UAB. Ask him if he’s an Auburn or Alabama fan, and he will likely respond with a loud “GO BLAZERS!!” He attended UAB’s School of Dentistry where he met his wife, Kathryn, and became a proud dad to his dog-hter, Roux. In dental school, he served as the president of his class for all four years and was recognized for his service and leadership by receiving the honorable Dean’s Medal.

Upon graduation, Dr. Bates and his family moved to Ann Arbor, MI to complete his orthodontics residency at one of the top programs in the country, the University of Michigan. After surviving three Michigan winters, he and his wife decided it was time to head back to the Southern heat and humidity to be closer to family and friends. When he is not at the office, you will likely find Dr. Bates on the golf course or traveling with his family to various music venues across the country to see his favorite band, Dave Matthews Band.
