“I feel blessed to have the opportunity to make such a positive impact on the lives of my patients. Helping to create beautiful smiles for people of all ages is incredibly satisfying, and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a patient’s smile on the day their braces are removed.” – Dr. Morris

Dr. Morris has been voted “Best Orthodontist in Sumner County” in Nashville Parent, the Hendersonville Star News, the Hendersonville Standard and the Gallatin News Examiner on over 10 separate occasions. He has also been recognized as one of the top 5% of Invisalign® Providers in Tennessee and one of the top 10% in the nation.

Family Life

Dr. Morris and his wife, Deirdre, moved to Hendersonville while he completed his orthodontic residency training at Vanderbilt. They quickly fell in love with Hendersonville, loved the people, and knew it was the best place to raise their three children, Sinclair, Marin and Jay.

Dr. Morris’ time outside the office is spent with his wife and three children. At night you can find Dr. Morris with his children at dance, hockey, soccer, baseball, cross country, gymnastics, lacrosse and more. When he has downtime in his schedule, he loves sharing his lifelong love for waterskiing and wakeboarding with his family.

Community Involvement

J. Richard Morris, Jr., DMD

Dr. Morris truly believes in the difference one person can make and in the responsibility each of us has for giving back. The Morris Orthodontics Volunteer Program has been featured in The Tennessean (the major Nashville paper) twice, The Hendersonville Star News, The Gallatin News Examiner and The Fairvue Plantation in Gallatin . A $350 reward is offered to patients/parents who volunteer 10 hours of service with the church, school or non-profit organization of their choice. He personally experienced the satisfaction of giving back on a dental mission trip to Guatemala, helping families who lacked access to regular dental care.

Dr. Morris enjoys being involved in the local community, teaching a weekly cycle class at the Sumner County YMCA and supporting local sports and dance teams. You can also find him on the lake, wakeboarding and water skiing in the summer and winter months. He has competed in countless triathlons and marathons and has sponsored several races for children and adults. He is also a proud sponsor of Sumner County Schools, the Sumner County YMCA, private schools, STEM programs, community fundraisers and non-profit organizations for children and adults. If you were able to attend the inaugural “Mr. Sumner County” fundraiser, you already know that he has some mad dance skills, too. He is always happy to make others laugh for a good cause.
