Dr. Lydia Lancaster is originally from Dexter, Missouri, a rural farming community in Southeast Missouri. She then attended Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology. Following her undergraduate degree, Dr. Lancaster moved to Columbus, Ohio, to begin her dental studies. She attended The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, graduating magna cum laude, as well as completing a three-year orthodontic residency. Since graduation, Dr. Lancaster has spent over two years practicing orthodontics in Ohio, and she is excited to bring her expertise to Nashville to serve our Marquee Dental Group patients.
When she is not practicing, Dr. Lancaster loves spending time with her husband, Adam, and their 1-year-old standard poodle, Hugo. She also enjoys playing the piano, spending time with friends and family, cycling, and golfing (even though she is definitely a beginner!). Dr. Lydia and her husband, Adam, married at the Hermitage Hotel in November 2020, and during the wedding process, they fell in love with the Nashville. They love officially being a resident of the Music City community and look forward to getting involved in various community organizations.
Being an active leader in the dental and orthodontic professions is a priority for Dr. Lancaster. She is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, as well as local and state dental associations, which she has held several leadership roles within those organizations. Additionally, she was appointed by Governor John Kasich to serve on The Ohio State University Board of Trustees as the Graduate/Professional Student Trustee from 2016 – 2018. She currently serves on the Board of Governors for The Ohio State University College of Dentistry Dental Alumni Society.
Dr. Lancaster is looking forward to getting involved in the Tennessee dental community, the middle-Tennessee community at large, and getting to know her new patients. She cannot wait to help you achieve your best smile yet!
