Meet the Winchester Dentist
Hi I’m Dr. Cory Glenn. It has been said that if you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. I can honestly say that I have found this to be true of dentistry. As a dentist in Winchester TN, I feel blessed to be able to combine my love of science and artistic expression into a career that can change people’s lives by restoring their smiles.
I was born in Jonesboro, AR where I lived until completing my undergraduate studies in biology and chemistry at Arkansas State University. I then attended dental school at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Following graduation in 2008, I went on to do an additional Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency with a focus on comprehensive care and dental implants. My love of dentistry and desire to excel in it has led me to become a continual student, taking far above the state required 20 hours of education per year (in 2012, I took over 380 hours).
I enjoy collaborating with other dentists on various dental topics and I lecture frequently across the world on the topics of CAD/CAM, conebeam technology and guided dental implants, dental photography, digital smile design, complete dentures, and complex full mouth rehabilitation.
I also hold active memberships in the following organizations:
- Middle TN Dental Study Club – past Chairman and past Continuing Education Director
- American Dental Association
- Academy of General Dentistry
- American Academy of Implant Dentistry- Associate Fellow
- American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
- Southern TN Christian Medical and Dental Association- current Vice president
- Franklin County One Day Community Outreach Steering Committee
- Rotary International
- Gideons International
- Franklin County Chamber of Commerce
As much as I love dentistry, the role I’m most proud of is being husband to my beautiful wife Amanda and being Daddy to our 3 precious daughters, Allie, Audrey, and Leah. Amanda is a dental hygienist and maintains an active role in the management of the practice.
On Dec. 26th of 2015, I got news that forever changed me. I was diagnosed with Leukemia. There's nothing like thinking you're going to die to make you really understand what's important in life. For me, that was my faith and my family. I spent the next 8 months doing chemotherapy fighting cancer. Thankfully, my treatment was successful and I'm now in complete remission but the experience has given me a renewed and much deeper perspective on life.
We are members of Winchester First Baptist Church where I enjoy playing guitar and singing in the praise and worship band. Outside of family and dentistry, I love to spend time outdoors cycling, fishing, hunting, woodworking, and doing photography.
