Meet the Staff

Dentist

Adam Veitschegger, D.D.S.

Dr. Adam Veitschegger grew up in Bowling Green, KY, where he graduated first from Greenwood High School, then from WKU in the first graduating class of Mechanical Engineers. He later attended the University of Washington School of Dentistry in Seattle, Washington where he learned about teeth, snowboarding, fish, and beer. After graduation, Dr. V began working with a fellow graduate in the town of Bend, OR, where he met his lovely wife, Stephanie, but his love of “The Glorious South” and his family drove him back to the Nashville area.

After working side-by-side with Dr. Faquin for 5 fulfilling years, falling in love with Springfield and the sweet people who live here, and starting his beautiful family, he was ready to cement his roots and bought the practice from Dr. Faquin in July of 2019. 

Dr. Veitschegger is on the Springfield Board of Zoning & Appeals, a member of the American Dental Association, the Tennessee Dental Association and the Eighth District Dental Society.

Dental Assistants

Hygienists

Gracie Barnett, R.D.H.

Gracie was born and raised here in Springfield, TN. She loves to travel and has a problematic love for animals. Please do not offer to give her any; she will probably say yes. If she has free time, you can pretty much guarantee that she is spending it with her niece. Our Christmas cards are stamped and labeled entirely by her. Over 2,000 stickers and she happily does it because she finds it “relaxing.”

She graduated from The Volunteer State Community College Dental Assisting Program in August of 2015. She completed her last rotation of clinicals here (this was already her dental office!) and was immediately hired after graduating as Dr. V’s assistant. She decided to go back to school for dental hygiene and graduated from Tennessee State University in May of 2022. She is the office jack of all trades.

Office Manager

Lisa Murphy

Lisa is the proud Lili to Beau and mom to Amber and Chelsea. The only thing she can talk to you more about than her grandson is the show Yellowstone! If we have a long weekend off, she and her husband, Richie, are at Land Between the Lakes riding horses and detached from the rest of the world. She and Dr. V are pretty neck and neck in the competition for office clown. If you have a baby that needs watching, she is your woman.

She is the office rock. If anyone needs to be cheered up or vent, Lisa is the one to go to. She makes sure that everyone, co-workers and clients alike, are treated right. She will fight like you have never seen to get insurance companies to pay for services so client’s don’t get an unexpected bill. She takes care of business – literally. Every document, insurance company, payment, invoice, EOB, phone call, fax, and email goes through Lisa. No client enters or exits the building without seeing her,
