Aja Nichols, DDS

Lead Dentist

Photo of Dr. NicholsAs an Indiana native, Dr. Aja Nichols moved to Atlanta with a fresh outlook on dentistry.

She graduated from Kentucky State University where she received a Bachelor of Science and became a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Dr. Nichols was also recently featured in an article for the Kentucky State University Campus News.

Three years later, she attended Indiana University School of Dentistry, graduated, and served 5 years active duty, and 3 years as a reservist in the United States Navy.

Dr. Nichols opened Lifestyle Dentistry in 2016. She has since then been voted as one of Atlanta’s Top Dentists in 2018 and 2019, and was featured in the 2019 “People You Need To Know” magazine as one of 50 Women Making Their Mark in Metro Atlanta (listen to Dr. Nichols’ recent radio interview).

She is also affiliated with a mobile-based dental practice where she travels to elementary and middle schools around the state to provide dental treatment to students in underserved communities. She has been mentored by a number of well-respected dentists and is committed to educating her patients on the importance of oral health.

In her leisure, Dr. Nichols loves to travel, read, trade foreign currencies, and is a sports lover of all things Indiana! She has four sisters, three nephews, one niece and a Godson who all hold the key to her heart. Dr. Nichols is all about family and friends, and is dedicated to making lasting memories with them. She is an active member of her community, mentoring and coaching in various areas of life.

When asked what a patient could expect at Lifestyle Dentistry, Dr. Nichols responds: “imagine going to your favorite hangout spot with good friends, we’ll just happen to look at your teeth, too.”
