Meet Dr. Morgan W. Gonder

I began working in the lab of an orthodontic office during the summers while I was still in high school. Even then, I began to see the positive effects a beautiful smile can have on a person’s life. Whether it is a child getting the treatment their parent wished they would have had as a kid or an adult finally getting the smile they have dreamed of for years, the changes ripple throughout their lives. I truly enjoy getting to know people and hearing their life stories. As patients move through treatment, I love to watch their personalities grow and hear about their successes and even the challenges they endure in life.

Family and Personal Life

I grew up in McMinnville, Tennessee and met my wife, Charli, in Nashville while in college. My wife was born and raised in the Memphis area where we lived while I was in dental school. We will be welcoming our first child, a baby girl, in March of 2020. We are very excited to move back closer to family and to be back in Memphis as we become parents.

I completed my orthodontics residency in Colorado where I acquired a love for skiing. I also enjoy reading, hunting, fishing, backpacking, wakeboarding, and pretty much anything else outdoors. We are also excited to be back in Tennessee so we can cheer on our Memphis Tigers, Tennessee Titans, and Memphis Grizzlies. 

As we move back, we look forward to rejoining our church in Memphis. We love the Mid-South and are excited to begin serving in our community again.
