Although born and raised in Texas, Dr. Diana’s love for adventure lead her and her husband to the beautiful Island of Hawai’i after completing her dental training. Prior to practicing in Hawai’i, Dr. Diana was formally trained at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. After dental school, she pursued her specialty pediatric residency training at the prestigious Yale School of Medicine and Yale-New Haven Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut. After enduring the rough northeast winters, she booked a one-way ticket to paradise and practiced for several years in the underserved areas of Big Island until she and her husband decided on settling down in the beautifully vibrant city of Nashville.
Dr. Diana strives to create a warm and welcoming environment for children and to make their dental visits as enjoyable as possible. Her goal as a dentist is to guide children and families on the journey to healthy smiles and healthy lifestyles. She finds it vital to create a foundation based on trust and open communication in order to arrive to a common goal for each individual patient.
When not in the office, Dr. Diana loves to surf and write/play music. Since there’s not much of a surf scene in Tennessee, she finds her active fix through CrossFit with her husband.
Dr. Diana is a Board Certified Diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Grover grew up in India and after finishing dental school and working for 3 years, she decided to come and pursue higher studies in the United States. She spent 2 years at University of Pennsylvania where she received her Doctorate of Dental Medicine followed by 3 years at University of Connecticut from where she received her master’s in science and Orthodontic training. An active member of American Association of Orthodontics and American Dental Association, she regularly attends professional meetings and continuing education courses to keep herself up to date in her field. In her free time, she likes to exercise, read, and spend time with family.
From the doctor: I believe that Orthodontics is a unique combination of art and science. Giving patients a happy and healthy smile is my passion. My goal is to address each patient’s individual orthodontic needs in a warm and caring environment. The objective is to provide you with the highest standard of treatment and a pleasant experience. My favorite quote – Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain.
Sam Collins, D.M.D. hails from the small town of Norris, Tennessee. He developed his work ethic from time spent on his father’s Christmas tree farm, and his patience from growing up with three sisters. A late bloomer to orthodontic care himself, he got his braces off just in time to head to Belmont University. During his time there, Dr. Collins earned his bachelor’s degree in exercise science and also became a fan of all things Music City. (Yes, even Vanderbilt football.)
After college, he attended dental school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. While earning his DMD, he developed a passion for orthodontics, specifically the patient connections and gratifications that come with the field. Dr. Collins completed his orthodontics residency at Medical University of South Carolina in 2018. During his free time, he enjoys spending afternoons on the lake, golfing, fishing, and the occasional game of pick-up basketball.
