Paul McCord, DDS, is the founding member of Ocoee Oral Surgery. The practice was founded as, “Paul McCord, DDS” but was changed to “Ocoee Oral Surgery” in 2013. Originally from Humbold, TN, Dr. McCord started the practice in 1983, and has worked in dentistry for 41 years. Dr. McCord was a general dentist in Knoxville, TN for 2 years before going back to school to become an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon. He is Board Certified in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery by the AAOMS and is Board Certified in Anesthesiology by the ADSA. Prior to Dr. Hunter McCord taking over the position Dr. Paul was Chief of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Head of the Dept. of Dentistry at Tennova Hospital (Previously Sky Ridge/Bradley Memorial) for 30 years. He enjoys the work very much not only because it is academically challenging, but also because he gets to work with people and effectively help them solve whatever dental problems may arise. In his spare time Dr. McCord enjoys working out, traveling, charity work, and spending time with his family– primarily playing with his grandsons!
