Meet Dr. Wayne Hester

meet dr Hester

Dr. Wayne Hester grew up locally in Berrien County. An avid interest in aviation led him to pursue a degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. After graduating from Georgia Tech, Dr. Hester served in the United States Navy as a Naval Flight Officer. His engineering background, coupled with a desire to help others, led him to pursue a career in dentistry.

Dr. Hester graduated from the Georgia Health Sciences University with his dental degree, and he practiced general dentistry in his hometown of Nashville, GA. His combined interest in dentistry and engineering proved to be a great foundation for the field of orthodontics and brought him back to GHSU for an additional two years of specialty training. Dr. Hester then returned to South Georgia to serve friends and neighbors in his hometown area. He has practiced orthodontics in Valdosta since 1988 and continues to pursue the latest educational and technological advances, allowing him to serve as a premiere orthodontic provider in the area.

Dr. Hester enjoys bicycling and boating, and also loves to spend time with his wife, Janie, and their children.

Dr. Morris met his wife Megan shortly after returning to the area, and they reside in Valdosta. They have four young sons, Nicholas, Andrew, Conner, and Henry who keep them on their toes! They attend Crossroads Baptist Church and enjoy the church family found there.

As avid outdoor enthusiasts, Dr. Morris and Megan can often be found jogging and biking around the neighborhood with their boys. They also enjoy swimming and boating together during the warmer months. As the weather cools, Dr. M participates in a variety of bird hunting excursions. His passion for college football is also evident as he and Nicholas are coaching the younger boys on their “GO DAWGS” chant!
