T. Lance Collier, DMD
‘‘I'm not here to judge. I am here to help you see the potential and make it a reality."
Dr. T. Lance Collier grew up in the rural community of Titus, AL, and attended school in Wetumpka. From there, he went on to graduate from the University of Alabama, earning a BS in Chemical Engineering.
During his school years, Dr. Collier’s sister became a dental hygienist, and it was her influence that led him to consider a career in dentistry. After working as a process engineer for a few years, he decided it was time to go back to school to pursue his real passion and become a dentist.
Dr. Collier’s desire to help others stems from his childhood. Growing up in a rural setting, it was in the norm for neighbors to help one another. This way of life is deeply instilled into Dr. Collier’s philosophy. Combining this with his artistic tendencies and engineering background makes Dr. Collier such a unique and well-rounded dentist.
For him, there is nothing better than witnessing the change that happens as you become more confident and happier with your smiles. After all, life is too short for you not to share your smile with the world!
Away From Dentistry
As a family man, Dr. Collier loves spending time with his wife and kids. He is an avid hunter, fisherman, and enjoys being in the great outdoors. In the Fall, his “house is divided” rooting for the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs. In the Spring and Summer, he tries to work on his golf game – but more often, it works on him!
Dr. Collier’s hero is his father. He was a hard-working man who spent 43 years as a railroad worker to support his family and allow his children to get an education. His work ethic and sense of responsibility are at the core of who Dr. Collier tries to be every day.
Now, this is interesting… Dr. Collier once taught himself to make rope hammocks and sold them as a side business.
