Message From Dr. Veal and Dr. Viola:
Our goal is to make you feel valued and cared for. As Jesus Christ said, What you've done to the least of these, you've done to me. (Matthew 25:40)
As Christ-followers we incorporate our faith into our practice. When providing care to our patients we will practice with Biblical principles. One such principle is found in the book of Hebrews (13:1) which says:
Keep loving others as brothers. Don't forget to entertain strangers for by doing so you may have entertained angels and not even known it.
A Louisville native, Dr. Veal graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry in 1995. After his doctorate, Dr. Veal spent a year in Burlington, Vermont where he received advanced dental training in a General Practice Residency Program. It is also where he met his wife, Denise. They have been married for 25 years and have four children together (Nicolas, Noelle, Nathaniel and Mebrate). Dr. Veal has practiced dentistry in Louisville for the last 24 years and still plans to practice for another 15 to 20 years, God-willing.
He loves spending time with his wife and kids and enjoys studying his Bible. Ask him what his favorite scripture is when you visit, and he will gladly tell you what it is and why. His passion is to do missionary dentistry locally and overseas. He loves kids, so make sure, if you have children, to schedule an appointment for them in the office. Lastly, and most importantly, Dr. Veal wants every patient to know that they will be valued and cared for.
