The service at downtown dental is excellent.  Providers are kind and receptive to your needs.  They offer an holistic approach in connecting dentistry to any other health issues you may experience There is never a wait and Dr. Clark is always accessible during the visits.  The cleanings are thorough and you are made very comfortable during the process.  I would recommend Downtown Dental for all your dental needs.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this business. Dr. Clark and his team have the training and expertise that I have not encountered at another dental clinic. I had a better understanding of my dental health upon leaving my first appointment. I immediately called my husband and advised him to transfer dentists as well. Special shout-out to Lyndsey who took the time to learn about me as a person and educate me on my dental needs. Thank you!!

This is a great place to get your dental needs done. I don’t like Dentist at all and expressed this to Dr. Clark and he promised he would do everything to make it as comfortable as possible and that he did. I highly recommend him. I have been going to him for at least 7 years!

Downtown dental is awesome. In depth yet not overwhelming… the doc and nurses are highly skilled and provide a tremendous amount of knowledge to each patient. I had a cavity filled at my previous dentist that left me with sensitivity for and soreness for 2 years even after bite evaluations and smoothing it down. Downtown dental corrected my old filling and the most recent filling I had done by downtown dental has been pain free since day one. This place rocks! I love the participation in your own care that they encourage. I couldn’t be happier!

I had the best experience during my new patient appointment at Downtown Dental. Dr. Clark and his team are informative, comprehensive and most important, warm and kind. My hygienist, Lindsey, is a rockstar. The front desk was very kind as well, and super helpful in getting me on the schedule. From someone who’s really only had negative experiences at the dentist, I can say this was the most positive experience I could’ve possibly had.

Everyone in this office is incredibly helpful, friendly and professional.  Don’t worry that you won’t be able to find parking downtown.  There are spots in the back of the office for convenient in and out service.  The office itself is beautiful and always clean.  They have all of the newest technology.  I feel like my health and time are valued when I go to Downtown Dental.  I have had some dental anxiety in the past and was incredibly happy to find this office!

Kelley H. from Goodlettsville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I’m terrified of the dentist. Yesterday was my first visit to Downtown Dental. They were highly recommended by so many at my firm and now I know why. They are the most thorough dental practice I’ve known. They examine you from the neck up, looking for any cancer, if you are getting enough oxygen, etc. They understood my fear and were so kind and compassionate. Best dental visit I can remember since I became afraid after having so many troubles with braces. I HIGHLY recommend Downtown Dental and Dr. Clark. Thanks to Nicki and Amelia too who both made it so much better than I anticipated.

I’ve been a patient at downtown dental for 21 years. Words can not describe how awesome they are. Dr. Clarke and his staff are always are so caring and accommodating. They go above and beyond to take care of you. For instance today I called with tooth pain and Dr Clarke seen me during his lunch break. I left with a diagnosis and a treatment plan. They have great procedures and protocols in place for covid-19. They have even made modifications remodeling their offices to keep patients safe and healthy. Even though they are downtown don’t let that put you off. They have free convenient parking at their building. I would give them 10 stars if I could and would not consider going anywhere else for my dental needs. Thank you Dr. Clarke, Jenny and the rest of the Downtown dental staff.

I began going to Downtown Dental just this month, and I’ve already had the best experience of any dentist I have been too (both in Canada and the U.S.)! My hygienist Lyndsey was incredibly welcoming, genuine, professional, patient, and extremely thorough every step of the way! One of the things I have appreciated most about my experience here is how they empower their patients with the information to take control of their own health. The initial 3-hour appointment gave me more information about my teeth and the health of my mouth (and how it related to my breathing, my posture, etc.) than I’ve ever received from all previous dentists combined. Lyndsey took the time to find out my goals for my oral health, gave me a clear and articulate overview of where my oral health was at (after a cleaning and getting a good look at the inside of my mouth through various means), and went over all my options for the work I needed to have done. After all that, she took the time to answer any and all questions I had (and I tend to ask a lot of questions) and graciously and happily repeated information she had already shared (because I struggle with selective listening). Additionally, when I met with Dr. Clark during that appointment, he and Lyndsey went over everything we had been discussing prior to his arrival, and I greatly appreciated how they included me in that conversation, and did not make me feel like a bystander to other people discussing my health! That patient-involvement is something I have never experienced at a dentist before (and if I’m honest, with other heath professionals), but had not truly realized it until that moment. Overall, the team at Downtown Dental have been patient, kind, communicative, and so helpful in relaying information about my insurance coverage, costs, and options. My visits to Downtown Dental continue to make me feel like I am in control of my health and working toward my health goals, with support from a caring and professional team that is eager to help me get there. Thank you Lyndsey, Dr. Clark, and Downtown Dental!

I had a cracked molar that needed a crown and also wanted to replace an old crown I have had for 30 years on one of my upper front teeth.  Dr Clark put both crowns on in just a few hours.  I’m not talking about temporary crowns and then come back in three weeks when the permanents come back from some lab.  They made both crowns right there in the office.  No impressions either.  They used a 3D scanner and designed the crowns on a computer.  Then sent the design to a milling machine in the office.  A little while later I walked out of there with two beautiful permanent crowns.  Friends of mine can’t tell the difference between the crown on my front tooth and the real tooth next to it.  Awesome!  Very high tech and professional – from the front office personnel to the hygienists, assistants, and Dr Clark.  Can’t recommend them enough.

These guys are amazing!  My neighbor recommended them and I’m so glad he did.  I’ve been going here for several years and they are great.  Dr. Clark is wonderful and I just love Amelia.  I recently had a filling and it was my first once since I was a kid, but they made it as painless as possible.   Highly recommend to anyone, especially anyone close to downtown!

My wife and I have both received stellar service. Their expertise covers but also goes well beyond day to day dental hygiene and related procedures. If you suffer potential sleep apnea, teeth grinding, jaw misalignment, etc please consult with them at least. You might end up paying $ beyond what dental insurance likes to cover for more involved procedures but you will have the benefit for your lifetime. Especially check them out if you’re working downtown already …obvs. (:

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


Excellent Dentist and Staff!!! I recently had a concern with one of my teeth over the weekend. I called Dr. Clark’s emergency line to leave a message. With much surprise, he returned the call himself and agreed to meet me in the office on a Saturday afternoon. If you are worried about the location and parking… Don’t be! They have FREE parking located directly behind there office.

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


I have known Dr. Daron Clark for several years now and could not be more excited that he has joined Dr. Rob Fesmire at Downtown Dental Service here in Nashville. Dr. Clark has been well known for his skill and professionalism among my family and friends. The staff at DDS are extremely courteous and caring and their efficiency allows for a smooth office visit every time. Pricing and the general importance and urgency of procedures are always discussed upfront and in the interest of the patient. Plus parking is free! Some other recent reviews of Dr. Clark and Downtown Dental Service I have run across: “Having avoided the dentist due to the anxiety and stress that dentist offices have always brought me, I was very reluctant to return. I am so relieved and grateful to have been treated with such care through the removal of my top wisdom teeth as well as 3 cavities. Dr. Clark’s high level of expertise was shown through his calming and thorough interaction with me as we discussed the results of my X-rays and then the procedures that followed. His handling of my procedures put my fears to rest and I would trust him with anything. Thank you, Dr. Clark!” “The-Doctor” does an excellent job…and he does his work with complete, precise efficiency, meaning you can get more work done in less time. I should know, he filled several cavities in the time it would have taken any other dentist several sessions to complete. He’s got just the right touch to get to the “root” of the problem. Some call it magic, I call it pure Wizardry, what with those feather-like hands and all. Absolute Genius technique. Perfect execution, true class every time.” “A true gentleman who is not only skillful but also professional and thorough, that is how one would be forced to describe Dr. Daron Clark. Highest Recommendation!” I’m partial, but I absolutely would suggest (and have!) Dr. Clark to anyone searching for a new dentist in the community.

Roberto H. from Greenwich, CT (Source: Yelp)


Definitely recommended. When you visit you’ll find a clean office run by friendly staff. Doctor is straight forward and gets right to work when he’s at your chair but still is quite hospitable. He and his staff not only provided the usual dental exams but also give you ample opportunity to learn what’s happening with your teeth and how to address the good and bad spots. Definitely an above average and much appreciated education on how to take care of my chompers. Scheduling is easy and they send you plenty of reminders (i.e. text) about your upcoming appointment. Parking on the street behind their office is tight and sometimes packed so plan accordingly. Wait time upon arrival hasn’t been an issue.

If I could give 10 stars I would!! The most enjoyable dental experience I ever received! I have always dreaded the dentist and this was the first time I left a dentist appointment overwhelmed with how delightful my experience was! I cannot rave enough on how incredible both Lyndsey and Dr. Clark were. They were very knowledgeable, personable, and extremely efficient! I would highly recommend Downtown Dental for everyone!

Rick B. from Avon, CO (Source: Yelp)


I always feel like a friend at Downtown Dental. The staff is always the perfect blend of professional and personable. Their hygienists are top notch, well trained, careful, and skillful. Dr Clark is one of those people that inspires confidence without feeling like you’re being sold something. The kind of people you could imagine being friends with beyond the office.

I had been searching for a new dentist when I started a new job downtown and Dr. Clark and his office was highly recommended by coworkers. The office staff is amazing, fun, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. I needed a good deal of restorative work done. They accommodated my request to get it all done in one day, pretty much. I feel I’ve received quality work, from a friendly and caring staff. If you’re looking for a dentist, go here, you won’t be disappointed.

Andrew O'Haro (Source: Google)


Went in for my initial patient appointment and couldn’t have had a better experience. Lyndsey was absolutely exceptional. I have not been to the dentist in far longer than I’d care to admit, however Lyndsey and Dr. Clark cultivated such a relaxing and nonjudgmental space. It helps that the office itself has a great layout, is clean and cute! Lyndsey made sure to educate me fully on what and why certain steps need to be taken for treatment, both short term and long term. Dr. Clark was also kind and professional, especially in helping me understand what needs to be addressed. Thank you to Lyndsey, Dr. Clark and team! I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I am looking forward to my next appointment.

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


As someone who avoided the dentist’s office for a while, I now come often to stay on top of my gum health and could honestly not be any happier with this office.  Dr. Clark is so easy to interact with, but also extremely knowledgable/professional.  Downtown Dental is unlike any other dental office I’ve ever been to, unparalleled, and I would honestly recommend it to anyone and everyone.  They are amazing at tailoring to your needs. If you’re concerned or interested in your health, they have an expanded practice that can help treat your sleep issues, grinding issues, or any problems with your gums.  If you’re worried about costs, they are great about offering options and are super nonjudgmental about whatever choices you make in regards to treatment. They literally guide you through everything.  My hygienist, Lindsay, is by far the most amazing hygienist I’ve ever had as far as her gentle but thorough technique to her genuine concern with my overall health.  Thank you for everything your practice has done and will continue to do for me!

Greg H. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Clarke is and his staff are fantastic! They are the most professional and courteous staff I have encountered since moving to middle Tennessee. They really try to understand you on a more personal level than many other dentist offices do, but I believe it pays to have a deeper relationship with any healthcare provider you see. Dr. Clarke will tell you exactly what is going on in your mouth and specifically with your teeth, so that you are well informed and make the appropriate decisions regarding your oral health. Excellent place!

Been going to DD doe 7 years. I’ve never had issues with my teeth and was experiencing pain I’ve never felt before when it comes to teeth/gums. Alex was amazing the whole time with my experience today and I left feeling better than I thought I would! They got me in quickly too (called last night and had a 10am appointment today).

Downtown Dental is an extraordinary dental office. Dr. Clark is exceptional in his expertise, ability to explain issues and remedies, approaches to care, personableness, and exhibits a patient and kind demeanor. His staff is top notch as well. All are extremely competent, caring, and attuned to a patient’s needs and experience. In addition, the office equipment is state of the art. It is easy to get to the office from the Interstate or local roads. Free parking is available next to the office. I highly recommend Downtown Dental; you will be in competent and caring hands.

Brandi J. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Darron and his staff at Downtown Dental are the best in Nashville! As someone who is from Nashville and has been to countless dentists in the area before finding DD, I believe it says a lot that I have now been going to them for 2 years and thoroughly enjoy the service they provide! The wait is never long and they take time to discuss treatment plans/comments/concerns. An added bonus is that they always remember me and details about my personal life so I feel connected to them and their practice.

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


Great dentist. Some of the highlights (All good things, all good things): Very relaxed atmosphere, Gentle with cleanings, Always on time with appointments, Use texts/emails to remind you of appointments, Always concerned about your comfort and will do whatever you wish to keep you from pain, Extremely warm, friendly, professional staff, including Dr. Clark, Great use of cutting edge technology to analyze your teeth, Have had some procedures done where Dr. Clark specifically instructed the staff not to charge me for them! Would definitely recommend!

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


Okay so who enjoys the dentist?  Nobody haha – I especially hate the dentist and feel like you should be aloud to drink in the lobby before your appointment (can you tell I have anxiety) lol.  From the first call to set up an appointment I realized how professional they are.  The receptionists are amazing.  They made me very aware of what to expect from payment down to insurance.  They’ve always been on point with the exact dollar amount I will have to spend.  The dental assistants are also awesome.  They explained everything very thoroughly before it took place and make you feel so comfortable.  Dr. Daron is super cool as well.  The facility is nice and they have what seems to be the latest of technology.  All in all, a very good experience in one of the worst places haha.  I would highly recommend them.  Thanks for your hard work yall!!!

I was in Nashville this past weekend and on the first night of my vacation I chipped a good chunk of my front tooth (texting in bed and dropping the phone on my face – of course). I was freaking out because I wasn’t anywhere near home and was going to be in Nashville another 3 days. I went to Downtown Dental at 7am when they opened on Friday clearly in a panic and asked them to please squeeze me in. The receptionists were beyond nice and empathetic and were able to squeeze me in between two patients that morning. I was nervous because that had never happened to me before and the nurses were so kind when taking the xray, examining the tooth and administering the numbing shot. They knew I was afraid of shaving the tooth and they talked me through it and were extremely considerate and worked slowly and carefully. Dr. Clark was so nice and I kept thanking him for squeezing me in last minute. I wouldn’t have been able to stay on vacation with half my tooth missing! He put bonding on my front tooth and I was out of there in 2 hours start to finish. I had to pay out of pocket and am working on getting my claim filed with my insurance (Delta Dental) to get reimbursed. Thank you again sooo much! I really appreciated it.

Dr Clark has a great team that is very professional and friendly. I’ve just had 7 old metal fillings replaced. Some were replaced with fillings, others with crowns or partial crowns. They ensure that you are comfortable during the procedures as well as communicate clearly about what each procedure entails. Dr Clark has a very high standard of work. Although crowns are very costly, they are in network with Cigna, which helps keep the cost down. I’ve been going to the practice for years for my cleanings too and think they offer a very thorough service.

Victoria is my favorite dental hygienist. She has taken my dislike of going to the dentist and gotten me to the point where I am neutral about the experience which is a big win. Not only does she do a great job but she is very personable as well, making the experience a good one. Pros: great experience, clean teeth. Cons: she’s an Alabama fan so do with that what you will.

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


I very rarely give 5 stars to anyone, but when you discover a business staffed by competent individuals at all levels and whom make an experience, by nature challenging, gratifying – I must shout their praises. I have had a spot on my tooth for years that has been there through at least two different dentist with cleanings. After my first cleaning with DD I went home and ran into my wife who asked how it went? I smiled and said, “great.” She studied my face and exclaimed, “your spot is gone!” I ran to the mirror and sure enough – gone. It was just a routine cleaning. DD is my new dental home. Since the moment I called to set an appointment, I have been treated by all as their favorite customer.

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


Just came from Downtown Dental and they are great. All the staff is very friendly and it is conveniently located downtown. Parking is simple and most importantly they do great work. Dr. Daren Clark is top notch and I would recommend him to anyone. I love how they use technology and are always on time. If your looking for a dentist in Nashville, I would recommend Downtown Dental.

I’ve been a patient here for several years and my experiences have been consistently positive. My hygienist, Alex, is very sweet, thorough and gentle. All of the staff is! They are so polite and they take the time to listen to your concerns, explain any issues and throughly complete your appointment. DD also respects your time. I’ve never waited more than 5 minutes for my appointment. My most recent visit in this COVID world was stupendous. The staff is taking every precaution and the business is very efficient and clean. They went above and beyond to communicate with me prior to my appointment regarding the new procedures for checking in, entering and so on. Just make sure you arrive a few minutes early to park behind the building (it’s tight but they do have designated parking!) I love Dr. Clark and everyone at DD!

Alison Ferro (Source: Google)


I’ve been going to Dr. Clark for a few years and can whole heartedly say he’s the best dentist I’ve had. He and his team are thorough, yet efficient, and they don’t try to sell you on unnecessary work (my biggest pet peeve about dentists!) On top of that, they’re just nice and a pleasure to be around. My husband now goes there as well, and I know he’s happy with them because he drives 20 minutes in the opposite direction from his office to get there. That’s loyalty!

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


Dr. Clark and his staff changed my life. They have given me the most exceptional dental/health care a person could possibly receive. I had a full dental restoration to help solve TMJ/TMD headaches, a bad bite, and crowns that were continually popping off. As a bonus, they also took pressure off my ear canal, reducing ear infections and also restoring my hearing- totally unexpected, but tested and proven by my hearing Doc. I am back living a normal life again and not planning time sick or hurting from activities that caused me pain- flying, chewing…even yawning. My teeth also look amazing and someone commented that I look like a walking toothpaste commercial a few weeks ago. Everyone in the office is wonderful, but Amanda is really an amazing person. She remembers everything about me and my wife, knows how to deal with me (a difficult personality), and is just flat out fantastic at what she does. Thank you, Amanda, and everyone else at that office. I can tell you all genuinely care. It’s relatively expensive, but I’ve spent more over the past 20 years on ineffective half measures than I did on a one-time expense that made life a hell of a lot better for me. I think about that office when I’m doing activities I was never able to do before. Oh, and parking sucks. Deal with it.
