Meet the Team


Tessa Willhite
Office Manager

Graduated from Nashville State Community College. I am originally from Madison, Tennessee and I have a wonderful husband of seventeen years and we have four children and four grandchildren. I am an Author of two books and I am currently working on my third. God’s guidance has lead me here to Mid-State Oral Surgery & Implant Center this year in 2017. I always keep my eyes fixed on the Lord and the opportunities that he provides. I have found the answer to a crying heart “Do not look back at the doors that have closed, stay focused on the doors that are opening before you.”
