Dr. McKenzie Boling graduated from Rhea County High School in 2004 where he played soccer and football. As a huge Vol fan, he attended the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, so he could cheer on the Big Orange in person. He’s super excited about the future of Tennessee football, and still relishes the days of Bruce Pearl. Dr. Boling graduated with a bachelor of science in civil engineering in 2008. After graduation, he married his high school sweetheart Ashley, who was attending dental school at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis. While Ashley finished her last two years of dental school, Dr. Boling received a master’s in civil engineering from the University of Memphis. The Boling's then returned home to Dayton where Dr. Boling worked for a large consulting firm in Chattanooga as a structural engineer. He worked on many projects across the country, but is most proud of his role in the Watts Bar Unit 2 effort. After working as an engineer for several years, and seeing how much his wife enjoyed practicing as a dentist, Dr. Boling decided to change gears and pursue a degree in dentistry. Now finished with his education, Dr. Boling is thrilled to be able to come back home to Dayton and to start serving his friends and neighbors. When Dr. Boling is not helping keep mouths healthy, he loves wrestling with his dogs Mudge and Prime, strumming his guitar, and spending time with his wife.
