Brentwood Dental Excellence - Rena

Rena Williams, R.D.H, A.A.S.

Rena was born in Southern California and moved to a small Tennessee town when she was 16 years old. She graduated with Honors from Chattanooga State with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene in 2014. Rena has also received her certification to administer local anesthesia. She and her husband, James, moved to Nashville in January 2015. Rena joined our team in 2015 after her move.

“I became a hygienist to be able to deliver superior health care to patients in the dental office. I enjoy building a continuing relationship with our patients. I also strive to make every person in my chair comfortable because no one should be afraid to take care of their smile!”

In her spare time, Rena likes to spend time with her husband working on their family farm here in Middle Tennessee. They enjoy spending time outside with their family and dogs (Tank the Rottweiler & Rusty the Red Heeler).
