About Dr. Tim

Tim McNeely is bringing the dad dance moves to TikTok, hitting that woah in a way only dads can. The Gen X dentist started by performing silly dances to cheer patients up, then ventured onto TikTok in March 2019 on a dare from his kids and clinical staff. Going viral three months later with his E.T. dance video, Tim’s goofy "dad doing teenage trends" has earned him the moniker "TikTok dad." 1M+ followers and 26M+ likes later, Tim makes sure to still run his uploads past his daughter for cringe quality control. Tim’s approved dances and dental comedy skits have helped pave the way for others to let their dad flag fly, and join in the fun to.
