Dr. Rushing and the Nashville Smile Team take great pride in always being extremely gentle and pain-free. Our office goes to great lengths to be able to help our most fearful patients find ways to overcome or manage their fears, to become persons happy with their smile and their oral health.
Our office works hard to provide the best service and most current procedures to our patients. We want you to get the best dentistry available, and we want to be sensitive to your special needs. Many of our patients have been here so long they feel like family, but new or returning we consider it a privilege to serve them all.
