Hello! My name is Deanna Hutcheson, and I am the Owner/Instructor of Advanced Dental Administration. I believe education promotes excellence! I love teaching and watching others move on as successful, confident members of their dental teams.

In addition to my role in Advanced Dental Administration, I am an instructor with Competitive Edge Dental Assisting Academy, based in Kingston TN, and the Office Manager for William S. Lenihan, III, DDS, in Oak Ridge, TN, whom I have been employed with since 1995.

I have been an active Dental Assistant since 1988 and hold certification from the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) as a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) and a Certified Dental Practice Management Assistant (CDPMA), am an active Registered Dental Assistant in the state of Tennessee (TN RDA) and obtained my BS in Management from Tusculum University.

When not working or teaching, I love traveling, hiking, and spending time with my husband, children, and grandchildren. I am a big sports fan and cheer the TN Vols on whenever I can!
