Dr. Heather Thornton

Dr. Heather Thornton

With over a quarter-century in pediatric dentistry, Dr. Heather Thornton is more than a seasoned professional; she's a community pillar. As an adjunct professor at UAB School of Dentistry, she's not just practicing but also shaping the next generation of dental experts. Off the clock, she's a devoted wife to Steve and a loving mom to their children, balancing family life with her passion for animal rescue, boasting a household of nine dogs and a unique pot-belly pig named Penny.

Outside the dental chair and lecture hall, Dr. Thornton is an active member of Church of the Highlands and an enthusiastic reader. She's a stained glass artist in her spare time and a tomato aficionado. Looking ahead, she dreams of owning a wedding venue in her retirement years. Dr. Thornton's practice is more than a business; it's a sanctuary where children's dental health is nurtured in a warm and caring atmosphere.
