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

Steve W. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


When I first moved to Nashville, it was difficult to find a dentist that I fully trusted. I found Belle Meade Family Dentistry many years ago. Dr Pace,Sr, was great. Always a pleasure and never made you feel unimportant. Never an issue. A Few years later he introduced me to his son, Dr James Pace, Jr. The rest is history. Dr Pace, Jr’ is by far the best dentist I have ever used. From general annual appointments to surgical, this man definitely has it down! He and his Medical Staff always go out of their way for their patients. I’ve been a patient of his since the time he went into practice with his Father. Best dental decision I ever made! Look no further than Belle Meade Family Dentistry.

They are fast and efficient…and do quality work. I trust them to not suggest procedures that aren’t necessary. I’m glad I trusted my gut and didn’t get work done at another place. The estimate was more than $5000 dollars different. I know different dentists are more or less aggressive in treatment than others, but the other place suggested I get 2 crowns, and apparently i didn’t need then. I had bad insurance before and could only go to chain dentistries. It was worth it to wait an entire year before I could have better insurance and be more selective. I couldn’t afford the treatment plan put forth by the chain dentistry anyway.

I had a dental emergency and was seen right away. Dr Pace Jr was through and explained everything into detail to be down to earth. I am definitely switching all my future appointments to this locations and give the office staff

No one wants to go to the Dentist, but you need to do it.  These guys and gals are great. They have taken excellent care of me for years. I was introduced to them earlier one Monday morning after breaking a tooth Sunday afternoon. I was not a current patient but they slipped me in their schedule and took excellent care of me in my time of need.  I have been a regular patient ever since and would not consider going anywhere else. Thanks Dr. Pace Sr., Dr. Pace Jr. and the staff.

Dr. Pace Jr. was very professional, efficient, friendly and gentle. He gave me a great example of my teeth and was very informative. I highly recommend him as your dentist! He really wants to help his patients, is very family oriented and not just about making money only, but is interested in truly helping people. He is a committed Christian. My career is in healthcare, so I can easily spot a great professional also working in healthcare. Thank you, Dr. Pace Jr.!!

Gloria V. from Clarksville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist I’ve ever had! The entire staff is phenomenal and they truly care about every person that walks thru the door. I drive all the way from Clarksville just because of the care I’m given and the amazing work they do. This is coming from a girl who hated going to the dentist until I was referred to Dr. Pace Sr. I have the most beautiful smile now that gets so many compliments on a daily basis and that is the best compliment I can think of getting, ever.

Ace E. from Henrico, VA (Source: Yelp)


I recommend this practice without reservation. All the dentists, assistants and hygienists are very skilled and personable. I have been seeing Dr. Pace, Sr. for several years. When he began reducing his hours and Dr. Pace, Jr. joined the practice, I was a little apprehensive that I would lose a little in the relationship and service. Boy was I wrong! I love Dr. Pace, Jr. He is every bit as good as his father. I won’t say he’s better until Senior retires and that way I won’t hurt his feelings.

I highly recommend Belle Meade Family Dentistry. Everyone there isfriendly and the dentists are great. I have had quite a bit of work done and Dr. Pace, Sr. and Dr. Pace, Jr. put me completely at ease with their knowledge and ability. I have been delighted with my experience there. I continue to be well pleased with the expert dental care here and which is painless, I might add! Everyone is so kind and It is an appointment I don’t dread. That is high praise!

I’ve been going to Belle Meade Family Dentistry for about 7 years and have always had a pleasant experience. Bonus points are given because they have blankets available for use if you’re cold, which I nearly always am! The front desk staff is friendly; my hygienist (Keitha) is great; and Dr. Pace, Jr, is thorough.

Miser L. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Pace did an amazing job on filling my two front teeth today! It looks like I never had anything wrong with them. You want your Dentist to strive for perfection and it shows in his work he certainly does. Everyone who works in the office is nice and creates a happy, professional atmosphere when one comes in for their Dental needs. Thanks and happy to be a patient here!

Wendell J. from Fairview, TN (Source: Yelp)


I have been getting superior dental care for over 35 years at Belle Meade Family Dentistry regardless of the procedures that have been needed. Dr. Pace and his staff have always been very professional and compassionate in all the interactions I have ever had with them. I would recommend this practice to anyone that is looking for great dental care.

I have been Dr. Pace Sr.’s patient since 1985 and now I am Dr. Pace Jr.’s patient. They are both wonderful as are all of their staff…especially Linda Floyd, my hygienist, who is retiring this year…… will definitely miss her. They make it pleasant to go to the dentist…even if you have to hear that dreaded drill!

Cindy P. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I saw Linda this morning for the 6 month cleaning and check up. It is very conveient for me because she offers early morning hours. Linda always is professional and courteous, she explains everything to me, She has a goodie bag she gives to promote excellant tooth/oral care which I appreciate very much. Dr. Pace follows my care. This dentistry offers excellant services and recommend them every time I get a chance!

Bethsaida C. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I recently saw Linda for a dental hygiene appointment.  I could not have been more pleased with her skilled, gentle and informative approach.  She took the time to sit down with me and educate me on the preventive care of my teeth and answered all my questions.  The entire staff at BMFD is very professional, thorough and friendly.  I have several upcoming appointments for replacement of crowns, teeth whitening trays in addition to veneers.  I look forward to my upcoming visits and feel certain that Dr. Pace and his staff will have me feeling confident about my smile again!

Genia O. from Brentwood, TN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. James Pace is the best dentist that I have ever worked with! I have several front teeth that have crowns and one front tooth required an implant during the past months. Dr. Pace and his staff were awesome, patient and kind. They follow up with you and go above and beyond to make sure that everything is perfect. They are simply the BEST!

Keenya Marie (Source: Facebook)


Had my 1st visit at the Flowood, MS location. The entire staff was knowledgeable of my insurance policy, fast, & SUPER FRIENDLY both over the phone & in person! I was able to get cleaning, fillings, AND a gold crown removal/replacement ALL IN ONE VISIT! I’ve found my new dentist!

Casey I. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Such a great environment. While I was waiting around a bit longer than I would like, I could tell they had a lot of patients! As a new patient we worked through all of the logistics quickly, all with some pleasant chats! As someone who gets anxious at appointments, I appreciated the entire team there! Also, my teeth look and feel great after my cleaning!

I have been coming here since I was a child, well I am still a child just a little older, and I have had nothing but the best experience with Dr. Pace Sr. and now his son Dr. Pace Jr. They have kept my teeth clean and healthy, and their staff is some of the nicest around. I highly recommend going to Belle Meade Family Dentistry.

Erika Finney (Source: Google)


I had a wonderful first experience visiting this dentist office. Everyone was very kind and attentive. Things moved a little slow, but I kind of liked the not rushed energy. My cleaning was great and didn’t make me feel guilty or induce a lot of pain. It was just right! Very happy I found this Dentist and I highly recommend.

Marques B. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I was in urgent need of a root canal and most dental offices could not work me in the same day. Belle Meade Family Dentistry not only worked me in but they treated me like one of their patients and took real good care of me.  I had no problems, no pain, and they were able to preserve my tooth and smile.

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


I was uneasy for my first appointment with a new dentist, because I am very particular. The Belle Meade Family Dentistry team was kind, courteous, and timely. I had two different dentists in the practice welcome me and introduce themselves. The hygienist did a great job, the assistants were friendly and accommodating. I highly recommended Belle Meade Family Dentistry!!!

Linda Wolf Kuiken (Source: Facebook)


I’m visiting Nashville and my temporary crown came off. They got me in right away and were so professional. They fixed my crown and had me on my way. A special blessing they never even charged me for their service. A big thank you to all.

Five stars are well deserved. No up sell pressure to buy fluoride treatment for a patient that has few cavities. I”ve been a patient of Dr. Pace, Jr., for close to 10 years and would recommend him without reservation. I feel similarly about his father, whom I’ve seen sporadically over the years. If you’re looking for dentists, stop looking: you’ve found them.

Brian Long (Source: Google)


I’ve been going to Belle Meade Family Dentistry for 5 years now and I’m very pleased with the service. I am usually squeamish at the dentist due to some past bad experiences at other places and all of the hygienists and doctors are super kind and patient. They will tell you if a cavity need attention or if it’s one that can be filled at a later date. I would highly recommend them.

Glenn W. from Franklin, TN (Source: Yelp)


Keitha is a great dental hygenist with years of experience.  Her work saved me from thousands of dollars and hours in the dentist’s chair recommended by another dental practice.  Dr. Pace has excellent technical skills.  He has never pushed me to have things done unless they were really necessary.  I have full confidence in him

Shelley C. from Baltimore, MD (Source: Yelp)


I love this practice. I moved here from Washington DC four years ago and have been over the moon about the service, compassion and care given by Dr. Pace Sr. and his son (Jr.) – they really take the time to talk through concerns, get a plan together and give you the best of care. All of the hygienists are excellent as well and I have had 3-4, given my crazy schedule. Also, they call, remind and make sure you are coming in as needed – but no guilt involved.

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


We love Dr. James Pace, Jr. and hygienist, Crystal! They are both very knowledgeable and take time with their patients. We brought our four year old in this morning and they did an incredible job with her. They answered her questions and made her comfortable. We would recommend their practice to anyone. Impressive staff and a nice clean facility.

Sinead M. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at Belle Meade Dentistry for almost 2 years. Dr. Pace Jr. is superb! He is very fastidious and professional. Belle Meade Family Dentistry is the only option for dental health in Nashville for me. Emmy is one of the assistants and she always asks if I’m doing ok while being worked on. She is a delight to be around. I would give them 10 stars!

Sara Murphy (Source: Google)


Finding an honest dentist can be difficult. That is why I am so glad my friend referred me to Belle Meade Family Dentistry. Scheduling an appointment was easy, the hygienist was super personable, and the dentist was thorough and upfront about costs as I was getting something cosmetic. Highly recommend!

Nicholas Badeaux (Source: Google)


I found Belle Meade Family Dentistry when I was experiencing pain from wisdom teeth extraction that I had the previous week at a different place. Not only did they solve the pain that I was experiencing but made me feel at ease with the entire process. From taking scans and X-rays, to the actual conversation to understand what I was experiencing, to the treatment plan. Everything and everyone at that office was extremely professional and caring. Definitely recommend for any of your dentist needs!

Susan B. from Franklin, TN (Source: Yelp)


My visit was as pleasant as a visit to the dentist could possibly be. 🙂 Everyone was kind, helpful, and offered me complete information about my dental health, how to best take care of my teeth after an upcoming surgery, and a suggested treatment plan. I always recommend Belle Meade Family Dentistry to others, knowing they will get the best possible care.

Allie M. from Ankeny, IA (Source: Yelp)


Dr James Pace Jr is an outstanding dentist. The knowledge he has in regards to performing everything from a crown, root canal, fillings and cosmetic services is exceptional! It is very apparent he is committed to providing the highest level of patient care. He is professional, compassionate and constantly learning new technologies and the very latest in dentistry. I feel my smile is in perfect hands with Dr. James Pace Jr.

Lori Bland (Source: Facebook)


The staff is friendly and kind. I have met with all of the dentists for various reasons and they are all phenomenal! I am so happy with the practice. I have recommended them to all my friends and family.

Rachel Schaffer (Source: Google)


So happy to have found Dr. Pace and Belle Meade Family Dentistry! I thought I had an abscess over the weekend and was able to get in right away with Dr. Pace. I appreciate their conservative approach and got me in and out and feeling better!I had not yet found a dentist here in Nashville and will be moving my entire family to their practice!

Tara W. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


You get what you pay for. I’ve been referred to many dentists over the years, but this was the best. I’ve been a patient for about 5 years. The staff here are worth the drive and the $. Although they take the time to explain everything to the patient (and family when needed) I never feel rushed. My appointments always begin on time and I can return to work on time. Each dental hygienist is equally skilled. It’s nice that they allow you to select your hygienist each time you come too. Helps to get to know the entire office and build relationships – especially for the children.
