Dr. Walter Peavler
Dr. Peavler grew up in Frankfort, KY and attended Transylvania University, where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. After working at the KY Division of Laboratory Services for many years and then as a biochemist in both private industry and at the University of Kentucky Biochemistry Department, he decided to pursue a career in dentistry.
He earned his degree at the University of Kentucky, College of Dentistry, in 2009. After graduation, Dr. Peavler served in the United States Navy from 2009 until 2014, completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency followed by tours of duty aboard USS HARRY S TRUMAN (CVN-75) and assignment as General Dentist at Joint Expeditionary Base, Little Creek, Virginia.
"Dentistry is a great profession because it fulfills my need for helping people and combines technical and artistic skills, satisfying my need to be challenged."
Dr. Peavler returned to his hometown of Frankfort in 2014 with Becky, his wife, and their children: Matthew, age 22 and Amelia, age 19. He began working for Dr. Powe in August of that same year and has had the pleasure of meeting many patients and their families.
