Dr. Tom Browder grew up in the quiet countryside of rural Davie County in Advance. He went to Shady Grove Elementary and then graduated from Davie County High School.

After graduating from UNC, Dr. Browder practiced dentistry in Taylorsville, NC for nine years. In February of 2006, he opened his practice in Advance.
Dr. Browder maintains memberships in most every major dental organization including the American Dental Association and the North Carolina Dental Society, as well as local dental societies. In August of 2006, Dr. Browder received his Fellowship status in The Academy of General Dentistry. He is an alumnus of The Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida where he has completed their entire post-graduate dental continuum.
Dr. Browder's commitment to dentistry runs very deep. He is extremely active with The UNC School of Dentistry where he is an Adjunct Professor with the Department of Operative Dentistry. In addition to his teaching duties at UNC, Dr. Browder also works closely with The Dental Foundation of North Carolina. That organization, working in conjunction with The UNC Dental School, provides valuable financial support to deserving dental students at UNC. In 2001, Dr. Browder and his wife established The James B. Hancock Memorial Scholarship to honor their good friend and mentor who had recently passed away. That scholarship now provides thousands of dollars each year to a dental student at UNC.

His paternal grandparents are the late Tom and Jessie Browder of Baltimore Road in Advance and his maternal grandparents are Walter and Lucille Orrell of Advance.
Dr. Browder is married to the former Deana Hartman and they have two children, Sydney and Hart. When not pursuing professional interests, Dr. Browder enjoys spending time with his friends and family. He and Deana find most of their time consumed with their children’s activities which have become too numerous to mention, but they enjoy them just the same. Dr. Browder and his family are members of Clemmons First Baptist Church. When possible, he enjoys getting away to cheer on the Tar Heels.
