G. John Touliatos, D.D.S.
After graduating from the University of Tennessee, Dr. T (as he is lovingly called by patients and staff) served two years as a dentist in the United States Army and then started his private practice in 1964 at the corner of Mt Moriah and White Station. His office had 2 dental chairs and a staff of 2. In 1983 they moved to 722 Crossover Lane where they had 3 dental chairs and grew to a staff of 4. After 40 years of solo practice, he found a dentist whom he felt could maintain the high standards of patient care that Dr. T had established with his patients. In 2004, he sold the practice to Dr. Micah Parkhurst. Dr. T continues to work one day a week (on Tuesdays). In his free time he enjoys playing golf, attending his grandchildren’s various sports games, travelling with his wife, and cheering on his beloved Memphis Tigers.
