I chose dentistry, mainly dentistry just seemed a little bit for me not only because of hours, but with the relationships you build with your patients. You see them twice a year and you're able to connect them with their treatment.
The most rewarding part about being a dentist is most of the procedures that you do, we see the results of them right away. We're able to change our patients' lives drastically within a couple of months or even the same day. And patients really appreciate that.
I attended Meharry Medical College in Nashville for dental school. I continued my education. I did a year residency at the University of Alabama in Birmingham for GPR. I do continue education every year in all aspects of dentistry, because I am a general dentist. Education is a big part of our practice at McRae Family Dental. We're able to take the information that we have and give it to our patients to not only educate them on their treatment, to give them knowledge so they're able to be a part of the steps of their treatment.
Dr. Chauntell Pullman decided to become a dentist in college. During the summers, she shadowed professionals in both medicine and dentistry. She was particularly impressed with the long-term relationships the dentist had with patients. She also saw firsthand the artistry that is an integral part of dentistry. She loves that it is the perfect blend of art and science.
Dr. Pullman was accepted into Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry and graduated with her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 2011. She advanced her training through a general practice residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. In 2019, she started working here at McRae Family Dental, where she remains dedicated to continuous learning. Her professional accomplishments and affiliations include:

What really makes Dr. Pullman a great dentist is that she listens to her patients’ concerns and educates them on their oral health. Together, they come up with a plan to improve their overall dental health.
During her free time, Dr. Pullman enjoys traveling, listening to live music, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
