Dr Frank Roach began thinking about dental school when he was in junior high. One of his hometown friend's father was a dentist and he got to visit the office from time to time with his friend. Frank Roach dentist was a big lego fan as a child and that joy of using his hands grew as he got older. Dr. Roach always loved putting together model airplanes and other things that involved doing stuff with his hands. Tinkering with tools and sports were his passions. Throughout high school he made good grades and excelled in sports. He ended up getting a chance to play football at Ouachita Baptist University where he studied biology and chemistry. Being from Arkansas, Dr. Roach had to apply to out of state dental schools since Arkansas didn't have one. Those slots are limited since schools give preference to the in-state students. He applied to UT Memphis which was the closest school and beat out 37 other applicants for a slot. The day he got his letter of acceptance is a day he will never forget. His new journey in life had just begun.
In dental school, Frank Roach dentist was active in intramural sports and waited tables at a steakhouse. Free time was a luxury that he didn't have much of while in school.
He got out of dental school in 1998 and spent a brief stint in the Navy. He was stationed in Newport, Rhode Island. That was an amazing time for him that he will always cherish. His family has a long history of service and while he wasn't on the ground he was proudly serving in a support role for those that defend our freedom. Today he is a passionate patriot that gets goose bumps every time the anthem is played.
Dr Frank Roach bought his practice in Norcross, Ga in 2001. It was an older practice that had been around since before he was born. Dr. Roach was born in 1971 and some of the patients had been coming to this office since 1968. Imagine what they thought when their dentist told them that he sold his practice to a dentist half his age. Hilariously, some of these older patients would ask Dr Frank Roach if he knew what he was doing even when he was doing the most simple of procedures. Dr. Roach knew that this was just due to him looking so young compared to the previous dentist. He would just smile and said, "Yes, I do. You are in good hands."
