Dr. Packard comes from a long line of dentists. His father is a dentist, along with his grandfather, four uncles, and a few of his cousins. Dentistry is in his blood, and Dr. Packard is committed to providing Bowling Green with quality care for the whole family. Growing up, Dr. Packard’s father was always his hero, and he always wanted to be just like his dad. It’s no wonder that he followed in his father’s footsteps all the way to dental school.
Throughout his military service as a Captain and dentist in the United States Army, Dr. Packard was lucky enough to have incredible mentors along with his father who helped shape him into the confident, accomplished dentist he is today. Dr. Packard and his wife both attended Western Kentucky University right here in Bowling Green. Dr. Packard's wife, Ali, graduated from WKU’s dental hygiene program, and Dr. Packard went on to dental school in Chicago at Midwestern University, where he received his DMD.
Dr. Packard and Ali are proud to be opening a new practice in Bowling Green, and they feel like they are finally coming home. If you’re looking for a friendly dentist in the Bowling Green area, Dr. Packard can’t wait to meet you and your family!
Dr. Nazanin Ghazisharif (aka. Dr. Naz) grew up needing a lot of dental work, which made her anxious to visit the dentist as a child. But that all changed when she was 14-years-old and preparing to receive braces. Her orthodontist referred her to a new dentist to have 3 teeth removed. This new dentist was kind and gentle, talked her through the whole process, and showed her that dental care didn’t need to be painful. This positive experience unconsciously shaped Dr. Naz’s career path and makes her strive to be the dentist that changes the way patients think about receiving dental care.
She achieves this by creating a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for her patients, empowering them to feel more confident about their smiles, and treating each person who walks through our doors like an individual instead of a number. Dr. Naz focuses on general and cosmtic dentistry, and prefers a “less is more” approach to cosmetic procedures. No one-size-fits-all makeover packages. Just conservative, customized treatment plans that consider the individual’s long-term oral health.
A native of Iran, Dr. Naz and her family moved to the United States in 2004 and settled in Nashville, TN. She attended undergrad nearby at Tennessee State University and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Biochemistry in 2010. She then graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2015 from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry. After dental school, Dr. Naz was stationed at Fort Stewart in Georgia, which is where she met Dr. Packard. That’s where they decided they would team up and practice dentistry together. Since graduation, she’s continued her education through courses that focus on cosmetic dental procedures and facial aesthetics.
Volunteering and travel are important to Dr. Naz. She’s been to 40 different countries across 5 continents, and she takes opportunities to combine those loves with her passion for dentistry through dental mission trips when she can. She wants to remind patients, near and far, that dentists can be kind and compassionate, and her commitment to her patients relies on trusting that she will always keep their best interests at heart.
