Our Dental Team 
Sets Us Apart

Come join our dental family and experience the kind of personalized care and consideration we’d expect our own family to get from their dentist. From the time we take getting to know you when you’re new, to the genuine interest we have in what’s going on with you, your kids, and your family. We want to develop a long-term relationship with you and your family which is foundational to giving you the best dental care you’ve ever experienced.

Dr. Darrel Clabough

Now celebrating over 30 years in dentistry, Dr. Darrel Clabough received his dental degree from the University of Tennessee in Memphis, and has been igniting smiles ever since. After owning his own practice for many years in Maryville, he made the decision to join the Northside family in 2021. He has dedicated much of his time to becoming a lifetime student of dentistry, and has also become one of the few dentists in the state of Tennessee to become IV sedation certified. Dr. Clabough enjoys hunting, fishing, sports, and spending time with his 3 children, and two grandchildren.

A Crossville area local, Dr. Johnny Shanks grew up here and feels privileged to be able to serve his local community with exceptional personalized dental care. He graduated from Campbellsville University with a BS in biology and chemistry. He attained his dental degree from the University of Tennessee School of Dentistry in Memphis. To provide exceptional care to his patients and their families, he’s also graduated from the Kois Center® for Dental Excellence, which teaches the latest advances in esthetics, implants, and restorative dentistry.

When not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Portia, who he’s been married to since 2005, and their four children.
