Dr. Jimmy Gardiner


Tuscumbia, Florence - Helton Drive



Dr. Jimmy Gardiner has always enjoyed calling the Shoals, AL, area home. Born and raised in Tuscumbia, AL, Dr. Gardiner is fulfilling his lifelong dream of serving the people of Northwest Alabama. Dr. Gardiner finished his undergraduate studies at Birmingham Southern in 1987 with an emphasis in chemistry and history. He graduated from the University of Alabama Birmingham School of Dentistry in 1992 and immediately opened his private practice in downtown Tuscumbia.

In 2001, the office relocated to 121 East 6th Street. "This move has allowed our office to reach its full potential," said Dr. Gardiner.

Dr. Gardiner is a member of the ADA and is committed to at least 60 hours yearly of continuing education. He has always been passionate about life and eager to take on new challenges. In 2011, he was inspired to embrace the changing face of dentistry and renewed his commitment to continuing education by studying research on the direct link between oral health and systemic health. Keeping our practice at the forefront of new dental technology enables our team to better assist with our patients' overall health.

Dr. Gardiner keeps up-to-date on the frequent changes in health care by attending continuing education classes and reading impressive amounts of material on the latest dental techniques. Dr. Gardiner has consistently invested in advancements in dental technology, such as digital radiography and the 1-day crown E4D system. This year Dr. Gardiner also became a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, which is dedicated to the role of dentistry in the management of sleep disordered breathing.

Dr. Gardiner enjoys people and taking care of patients' needs. He also loves educating and motivating our team members and patients to be their very best.

Dr. Gardiner and his wife, Nan, have two children, J. and Ryan Leigh. They enjoy spending time together on their farm and other outdoor activities. They especially look forward to hosting the annual Saddle-up for St. Jude event in Tuscumbia, which has raised over 2 million dollars for St. Jude's Children Hospital.

Dr. Gardiner and Nan can also be seen on Friday nights in the Fall in the press box at Deshler Stadium, as Dr. Gardiner becomes the voice of the Deshler Tigers.
