Dr. John D. Marshall's journey began in Panama City, Florida, where he graduated from Rutherford High School and Gulf Coast State College. Remarkably, he enlisted in the Army National Guard at just 17, serving 6 years in infantry and 4 years in the dental corps.
In 1991, Dr. Marshall relocated to Birmingham, Alabama, to further his education at UAB, earning a B.S. degree in natural sciences while also being an active member of Theta Chi fraternity. Subsequently, he pursued his dental education at UAB dental school, graduating among the top 10% of his class in 1997.
Following graduation, he made Tuscaloosa his home and joined Dr. Robert H. Davis's practice in Northport as an associate. After 4 years, Dr. Marshall became a partner in the practice, where he has dedicated himself for the past 24 years.
Beyond his dental career, Dr. Marshall recently completed a 5-year term as a commissioner with the Alabama Athletic Association, demonstrating his ongoing involvement in the state's combat sports arena. He has been happily married to Rhonda Rushing Marshall since 1994, and together, they have three children: Anna Grace Marshall, a Physical Therapist in Birmingham; Alison Blair Marshall, a professional dancer in Dallas, Texas; and Lane Marshall, currently a mechanical engineering student at Texas A&M.
In his leisure time, Dr. Marshall enjoys traveling, particularly in their Tiffin Motorhome, indulging in boating, staying active with exercise, and cherishing moments spent with his family.
