TW Orthodontics wants you to meet the team! We sat down with Dr. Nick Turner and asked him some questions to get to know him better. Check out his interview below!

Q: How would you spend an ideal day off with no financial limits?

A: Well, I would probably be on a boat somewhere in the middle of Caribbean with my whole fam jam and close frands. We would have our own private concert consisting of Kenny Chesney and Jimmy Buffet (daytime), followed by Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift (mid-afternoon), and Snoop dog late night. Duh!

 

Q: What gets you up in the morning?

A: Usually my 3 year old…But if it wasn’t for him, it would be the fact that I have an amazing family and the best job in the world!

 

Q: Did you have braces growing up? If yes, how old were you and what did you dislike the most?

A: Sure did. I don’t remember how old I was, but I remember I smoked my first cigarette wearing braces. Got in big trouble for that one. I remember breaking lots of brackets and the glue taste terrible. Maybe I should have avoided the triple jaw breakers.

 

Q: What is your favorite hobby and why? 

A: I enjoy golfing, boating, and fishing but my favorite hobby these days is sleeping.  Why you ask? Because I have three young children

 

Q: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?

A: Somewhere on the gulf coast. Close to fishing, beach, Putt Putt Golf and Dippin’ Dots.

 

Q: Do you have children/pets? If so, what do they do that make you smile?

A: I have three amazing children, Reese (age 5), Will (age 3), and Ben (8 months). We had a rabbit named sparkles for two weeks until Will was “too rough” with it (RIP). My children always make me smile. I love to watch Reese learn and excel in her reading and writing. I enjoy watching Will play soccer and act a fool with his friends. Ben makes us all smile when he smiles!

 

Q: What is your favorite part of your job and why?

A: I love helping people improve themselves. Not only their appearance but the way they feel about themselves. Orthodontic treatment is a process and the patient often puts as much effort into getting a great result as I do. Sharing this sense of accomplishment with my patient is extremely rewarding.

 

Q: If you had to pick one song to be your life theme song or “walk out song” what would it be? 

A: Life theme song: “TLC, Waterfalls”, Walk out song: “AC/DC, Back in Black

 

Q: What is your favorite local restaurant or place to go? What do you like to do/eat?

A: I love junk food! Anywhere with burgers, fries, BBQ, or McRibs!
