John Lee Farringer III

Dr. Farringer began his practice of dentistry in 1973 in Green Hills (Nashville, TN). He soon became interested in helping patients with a variety of disorders caused by tooth, jaw and airway problems that many people would not associate with dentistry. He is now a recognized leader in resolving patient’s sleep disorder and jaw joint (TMJ) problems without resorting to surgery. He is frequently called upon to testify as an expert witness in court cases involving the practice of dentistry.
