Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

I absolutely love this place. I visited as a new patient a month or so ago, and was scheduled for a crown yesterday. Dr. Dickerson and his staff make my visit very comforting. I honestly never even felt the needle when he went to numb my gums. This was amazing!!! Then he and his staff went far and beyond to make sure that my new crown would match. Took multiple pictures in different lighting just to make sure. I am extremely impressed by Dr. Dickerson and his staff of great ladies. Another thing is that they offer a discount program for individuals that do not have insurance. This was a life saver to me. I would recommend this facility to ANYONE looking for a great dentist. 5 stars !!

This is truly the best dental office I have ever been to. The staff is friendly, toothbrushes in the restroom to prepare for your visit, Dr. Dickerson is the absolute most delightful dentist I have ever met. His personality is so reassuring and nurturing. The optimism is priceless. His staff is super friendly and informative and I didn’t have to wait a bit, even though they accommodated my request to move up my visit. The in house financing is definitely a convenient way to begin treatment and I can’t wait to get started!

Dr. Dickerson and his staff are not only the best when it comes to dental work they also care about their patients. I have severe anxiety and have put off getting dental work done. Dr. D explains step by step what he is doing and answers all of my questions and concerns. I am not an easy patient but everyone there is compassionate and understanding.

Full disclosure: I have always feared going to the dentist, no, I mean full-fledged FEARED having anyone invade my personal space in such a way. All I needed to do was mention this when I phoned for my first appointment with Dr. Dickerson. From the moment I arrived, his kind, compassionate, and (let me emphasize) non-judgmental staff was ready. Every procedure was explained thoroughly, my comfort level was of utmost concern at all times, and the visit went as smooth as silk pie. I had my first quadrant of treatment today. No details needed, except to say, again, that the care and expertise in his practice is top notch! I’ve already recommended him to family and friends. I cannot speak highly enough…so much so that I joined Yelp just to leave this review. Do yourself a favor and make Dr. Dickerson your dentist of choice!

This office has always been very organized, professional and respectful of my time. Meghan the Hygenist is awesome and always leaves my teeth feeling nice and clean. Dr. Thompson and Dr. Dickerson are always pleasant to visit and are genuinely concerned about my comfort and strive to give the best care.

All the crew who work here are true gems. I had a horrible experience as a child making me terrified to go to a dentist. Dr. Dickerson is a rock star. He numbed me completely and did an excellent job working with me and has completely changed my mind about going to the dentist. The price is extremely reasonable and he is available for emergency calls. I cannot say enough about this practice.

Cara D. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I have been here twice for cosmetic work with Dr. Dickerson and both times I was incredibly pleased with my care. Everyone in the office is friendly and knowledgeable, they ran perfectly on time and they charged very reasonable prices for what I had done. Dr. Dickerson was patient, and took lots of time to answer my questions and make my teeth look just right– perfectionism is something you want in your dentist! He also took concern in regards to my routine dental work and made several suggestions for dentists to try within my insurance network as he wasn’t covered. Really great people at this office.

I was absolutely dreading my appointment with the dentist but after my visit, would never even consider going anywhere else ever again and would also highly recommend anyone to visit this place for all dental needs. I was made very comfortable and at ease during the entire time, and by everyone who worked there. It was quite possibly one of the best dental experiences that I have ever had.

We had a dental emergency, on Memorial Day I called 26 different dentist offices that claimed to be an emergency dentist. I called 21st Century Dental and they called me back within a couple of hours, on Memorial Day while he was on vacation out of state with his wife….. if that doesn’t say something about this dentist office and taking care of it patients i don’t know what does!!!

Karen R. from Brentwood, TN (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Dickerson for 24 years, and I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else. My husband and children also see him – the only dentist my college-aged children have ever been to, and they love him and his staff as well. Everyone in the office is so nice and accommodating, and I appreciate the great care we receive there. I highly recommend Dr. Dickerson and his wonderful staff (especially Stefanie)!

Kathy A. from Brentwood, TN (Source: Yelp)


David Dickerson has been our family dentist for a long time. He put in beautiful implants after my daughter had her 2 front teeth knocked out, and he’s repaired work that other dentists did on my teeth years ago. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone looking for a pain-free experience.

Michael D. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dave and his team are simply THE best dental professionals in Nashville. I have been a proud patient of theirs for 10 years and they have truly gone above and beyond the call of duty for me and for all the friends & family that I have referred to them. Stephanie, Shannon, Jennifer, Danielle & the entire team are amazing and the Doc himself is the most caring, skilled & all-around awesome dentist around. There’s a good reason for all the accolades he has won, and I cannot recommend anyone more highly.

John S. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


In the past every year I always had some type of expensive problem with my teeth.  However since I have been going to Dr. Dickerson, my teeth have been healthier and actually cost me less money year to year. I credit this improvement in health to taking their suggestion to add an extra cleaning to my yearly schedule.  Extra cleaning by clinical staff works!

Camille K. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Ok! I am still in the parking lot of Dr. David Dickerson’s office beyond pleased with what he has done with my teeth! I’m 53 and I’ve gone through a few dentists. Dr. Dickerson is by far the best dentist I’ve ever gone to. He has a great staff that I have become my friends. They are quick, they are prompt, and I’ve got the prettiest smile in Nashville! Thank you Dr. Dickerson!

A last minute request while I was vacationing in Nashville, I needed a cleaning and I do not have insurance, I also requested Nitros since I have very bad dentist anxiety. I was kindly appointed for less than 48 hours and when I walked in, it was almost like family. Stephanie was my hygienist and extremely sweet and patient with me. She was also very gentle and knowledgeable. This is my new dentist office anytime I am in Nashville. They also said they will suggest to me a dentist in California so if I need anything while I am home, I will be taken care of in their “network”.

Excellent, trustworthy dental care, really excellent hygienist (Meghan), friendly staff all around! I always recommend this dentist’s office to people I know who are new to town. I’ve been with them eleven years (yes, even through the pandemic) and I’ve never once regretted entrusting my dental care to them.

I have been seeing Dr. Dickerson for 28 years, and my whole family goes to this practice. It’s always been a great dental practice, and now we see Dr. Thompson. I highly recommend him and his whole staff. Stephanie is my dental hygienist, and she is wonderful. I can’t imagine finding a better dental practice! They’re the best!

I have never been more satisfied with Stefanies cleanings or Dr Dickerson’s abilities than any dentists office in my life! I am 55 years old with lots of dental work done over the years. Moved to Nashville 4years ago and tried 2other dental offices before finding them. Boy, am I glad I did!
