I have been with Kemp Dental for several years and every time I show up they make me feel like family. I have had lots of dental work done and the pain is at a minimum. Megan is my dental hygienist and she does all of my dental care and she is sweet as pie and she always make sure that I am not in pain. Dr. Kemp and his staff are very professional, you receive text reminders of your appointments, and they even email you a happy birthday message on your birthday. Great customer service that makes you feel like your more than just a patient you are a Kemp Dental family member.

Dr. Kemp and his staff do a great job providing dental care for my entire family. My visit for a routine cleaning was excellent. The hygienist was very gentle while doing a great job explaining everything she was doing. Not only did they provide great service, they did so in a quick manner. I arrived at my appointment time and did not wait five minutes before I was called back. I would highly recommend Kemp Dental!

Karen took care of me. She was friendly and kept me informed of all procedures during my X-rays and dental cleanings. Dr. Kemp visited and welcomed me to his practice. Very reassuring and informative about my teeth. He completed me on maintaining my teeth through my long life and explained that one of my crowns needed repair. Very professional. I highly recommend Dr. Kemp.

After moving from Florida and visiting several dentists in northern Alabama, we heard about Dr. Kemp.  Dr. Kemp is a terrific dentist– very knowledgeable and friendly.  His office staff, dental hygienists, and dental assistants are also wonderful.  We are happy to travel 2 hours from our home in Alabama to Brentwood, Tennessee in order to receive care from this excellent dentist!

I have been going here for the last 2 years my husband is a long time patient. Wry friendly staff, I trust all the techs and docs I recently had a temp crown and it was painless and very good work. I can’t even tell I have a temp crown. Especially love Dr Kemp. They may be a little more expensive but they are well worth it. My appointments have always on time. Highly recommend

Kemp Dental has been my saving grace with keeping my teeth healthy. I appreciate their warm hospitality that I receive at the front desk. My dental hygienst Meghan is really sweet and professional. She makes sure I am not in pain. Kemp Dental also can set up a payment plan to help you with your budget. The office is beautiful and very hi-tech. I love that each dental area has their own tv to keep your mind at ease. I feel the love every time I walk through the door. Thanks Dr. Kemp and staff for being so professional and accommodating to my dental needs.

I’m someone who has had horrible dental problems my entire life, so when I moved to Nashville I knew it would only be a short time before I’d have to find help. Dentists can be a scary and sensitive subject, but I got extremely luck on my first try. The office is located in Maryland Farms and has very soothing atmosphere. Dr. Kemp and his staff are extremely professional and super warm and friendly. They’ll definitely make you feel as comfortable as you can get for being at the dentist office and take the time needed to explain what’s going on and get the work done. Also, they aren’t alarmists here, so no one will send you running off in a panic (I’ve had problems with this before in the past with other dentists). I’d also like to mention that Suzanne is probably the best dental hygienist ever! The entire staff is great, but when you find someone awesome you try and stick with them. Since I’ve moved here, pretty much my entire family have become clients. I’m glad to know that whenever tooth problems occur, and without question they will for me, I don’t have to worry too much because I’ll be in good hands at Dr Kemp’s office.

I’m one of those people who has felt traumatized by some dental experiences in my life, but Dr. Kemp and his amazing team have erased any fear or dread of the “chair”! He has gone above and beyond, working things out for me when they were closed during the pandemic and his work is the best I’ve had done. I recently moved to another town, but I’m staying with Dr. Kemp, I don’t care how far I have to drive!

Morgan Davidson (Source: Google)


I was in need of a new dentist since I moved to the area recently. A friend recommended Kemp Dental. I was amazed at the service provided by the staff here! Kemp Dental goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and at ease. I was impressed by their technology and ability to explain each and every step. I left feeling really taken care of! I will be recommending Dr. Kemp to my people in the future!

Luis A. from Baton Rouge, LA (Source: Yelp)


I just had my cleaning this past week with Christina. She was fantastic and really took her time. For example, I had a permanent retainer removed years ago, and everyone in other offices used to skim past it. Christina spent the extra effort cleaning off that stubborn residual glue left behind for 7+ years. The office took all the extra precautions to make you feel safe during COVID. Thank y’all!

Kemp Dental is the nicest dentist office I have ever been to! The big double glass doors lead to the dentist office itself. The lobby is warm and welcoming and the staff is very friendly. I had the most thorough examination with x-rays and photos I have ever been through with the latest technology and equipment. Brittany Goodall was my dental hygienist and I would highly recommend her! She gave a detailed explanation of what to expect during the exam and what she and Dr. Kemp would be looking for in the photos and x-rays and why they were important. Brittany also introduced me to a new toothbrush and floss and demonstrated how to use them, which had never been taught to me by a professional. Thank you for taking such great care of me!

Everything about the Kemp Dental group will exceed your expectations of a visit to a dentist. Everyone is very friendly, prompt, professional, and caring. Dr. Kemp and the dental hygienists I’ve seen always remember me and ask about my family. I’ve never had a bad experience in the 20 years that I’ve been a patient.

I went to Kemp Dental for the first time today, and Dr. Kemp and his staff exceeded my expectations! They were extremely thorough and took great care of me. I was nervous about having fillings, and they were so calming and put me at ease—even made me laugh! The procedure was easy, and it didn’t hurt. They are personable and really care about their patients. Kemp Dental is a top-notch practice in a beautiful space, and I wish I’d discovered them sooner!

Very efficient and effective, organized, clean, caring team. They have great systems that make it easy for appointment booking, almost a zero wait-waiting room experience, easy insurance filing and quick pay checkout options. Dr. Kemp, Celeste and entire team make the dental experience put a smile on your face.

Always the best—Very happy patient here for 7+ years? Dr. Kemp is precise, caring and gracious. Treatment/equipment on site is super modern and has always seemed way higher-tech than experienced at previous dentists. Office staff is warm and environment is clean and inviting. Dr. Kemp and staff make what would otherwise be routinely obligatory-unpleasant experience—depending on how you feel about dentist visits—pleasant and uplifting. Always leave feeling better than when I arrived. Sincerely appreciate Dr. Kemp and staff

World class dentistry and customer service. The staff is all friendly and know who I am. I’ve had normal cleanings, permanent retainers, and emergency veneer replacement all done quickly and wonderfully. This is truly a great, skilled, and professional team. I bring my kids here now as well, and they love it. I can’t recommend them enough.

David Nilson (Source: Google)


I’ve been a patient of Dr Kemp and his practice for 17 years. I had bad experiences earlier with another dentist and hygienist and did not see a dentist for 20 years. Dr Kemp and Celeste listened and understood my concerns. He and his staff are very patient and professional. Several hygienists have cleaned my teeth and all are skilled and wonderful. I recommend his practice and dentists without reservation.

I have been a patient with Kemp Dental for about 2 years now and I must say that this has been my favorite Dental Clinic, by far! All the staff, especially, Dr. Kemp and Brittany Goodall who is my Dental Hygienist are phenomenal in their treatment and care. They are such kind people who are genuinely concerned about the dental health and well-being of their patients. The staff at the Dental clinic render great customer care by following up diligently on appointments and last but not the least, I would like to mention that they maintain a very clean and meticulous facility! My visits here have always been a pleasant experience and I cannot recommend this clinic highly enough 🙂

Since the first day three years ago, I’ve had appointments every six months at Kemp Dental for cleaning because of rapid tarter build up. I’ve also had a crown installed. In every case, the treatments and services have been absolutely exceptional!! EVERYONE at Kemp is over-the-top nice, warm, relational, professional, and knowledgeable. Dr. Kemp has brilliantly assembled top talent, created an exceptional in-office atmosphere, and personally provides stellar care.

Sherie E. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Kemp for over 15 years, and have never had a bad experience at his practice.  This includes braces, crowns, fillings, and cleanings. When I have had extensive work, I always get a phone call the next day to check and see how I’m doing.   My fiancé is also a long time patient and has always had great visits.  I have read a few reviews on here that complain about not seeing the dentist; the truth of the matter is that, at most offices, the highly trained assistants (many have Bachelor degrees) do a good bit of the work.  The staff at Kemp Dental is friendly, professional, and a joy to be around.  I highly recommend this practice!

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


I can’t say enough good things about Kemp Dental! Dr. Kemp and his staff do outstanding work, provide detailed patient education and straightforward financial information, and are some of the kindest and friendliest people you will ever meet. I have a beautiful new smile thanks to Dr. Kemp who talked to me at length to help me decide what to have done and was attentive to every detail during the process so that I got the best result possible. Celeste and Laura took great care of me during my visits to have the cosmetic work done, and Suzanne’s examination and cleaning at a routine visit were the most thorough I’ve ever had. As icing on the cake, Dr. Kemp devotes a considerable amount of his time and resources to providing care to needy individuals. The office also supports multiple organizations and nonprofits doing great work.

I’ve been a patient of Dr Kemp well over a decade. I’ve always been treated like a member of his family. The environment and service is excellent. I would recommend him to any and everyone who are looking for a dentist. You will not be disappointed!!!

I absolutely love seeing Dr. Kemp and Kristina at Kemp Dental. The entire office is friendly and helpful. I have lived in several different cities over the last 10 years and this is the first dental office that I have been blown away with. Kristina (my hygienist) has so much knowledge and when it comes to answering my specific questions on sensitivity, staining and cosmetic treatments they offer. Dr. Kemp is extremely talented and has a very good bedside manner. What I like most about Dr. Kemp is that he is honest and genuine. I had other dental offices try to persuade me to purchase veneers, but Dr. Kemp suggested I wait and fix an issue I had with another treatment. It worked and he saved me lots of money! I recommend him and Kristina to all of my friends and family!

Kemp Dental is more than just a legendary dental company. It might be the best run organization in Nashville. Their care for you supersedes all else. They turn profits into helping people in 3rd world countries and NOBODY works harder and hires a better staff than Dr. Phillip Kemp. That’s why my family has trusted Kemp Dental for 18 years.

Viva S. from Hendersonville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely best dentist I have ever had. Dr. Kemp is extremely meticulous, kind and compassionate and every staff member I’ve encountered has been extraordinarily professional and positive. Office/clinic area are beautifully decorated, clean and inviting. They have more high-tech dental gadgetry than I have ever seen at dentist or even knew existed. Also Dr. Kemp has a “Project Smile” charity that he runs outside of ordinary business hours, I don’t know details but heard it is awesome.

Guy T. from Newton, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kemp is my mothers dentist and I brought her in because of a tooth problem. I read the yelp reviews and was a little concerned that she would not see the dentist. I could not be more impressed! The dentist saw her right away and spent plenty of time making sure she was taken care of. Coming from Boston we don’t have anything even close to dentist office this nice. The equipment was all new, the office and dental rooms were beautiful and the staff so pleasant! I like it so much that now that my dentist has retired I am going to start using Dr. Kemp.

Christy T. from OH, OH (Source: Yelp)


I have had repeated wonderful experiences at Kemp Dental!  The staff and Dr. Kemp are SO WARM and KIND and THOROUGH.  They take their time with you and make you feel like you matter.  I never question that they are doing the best for me. Totally satisfied and highly recommend them!

Caraline R. from Henderson, TN (Source: Yelp)


I cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Kemp and his entire staff. I came to him on the recommendation of a friend after a TERRIBLE experience with another dental office. When I told the scheduler I was in pain from a bad filling a month earlier, they fit me in the next day for him to at least take a look. Dr. Kemp and his hygienists made me feel so comfortable and taken care of (I saw the hygienists Celeste and Megan, and they were both absolutely amazing, so friendly, warm, upbeat, caring, and kind). As soon as I walked in, I just felt I was in the right place. Dr. Kemp very professionally explained the problem with my work from the other dentist (a filling so poor it was obvious in a photograph the cavity hadn’t been totally filled) without speaking ill of the other dentist but in a way that made it clear there was a problem and he could fix it. When I went in to get the actual filling, he was again kind, professional, and caring. I also learned during the visit that he was getting ready to go do charity work in Texas, volunteering to give free dental services for those in need–a good man and a good dentist. Honestly, I can’t say enough about how lucky I feel to have found Kemp Dental. I tell everyone I know. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Kemp and Kemp Dental! I had an issue with one of my teeth 2 days ago while at work and needed help FAST! They brought me in, diagnosed the problem, and fixed it that same day!! No more pain and I was able to return to work. Katherine and Dr. Kemp were amazing and very efficient – experts in their field!! Keep up the great work Kemp Dental!!!

I’ve been a patient here for several years and can’t say enough good things about this office & staff. No matter which doctor or hygienist sees you, they always go above and beyond with patient care. They are both friendly and professional and their office is warm and welcoming. Their dentistry skills are top notch and they take excellent care of my dental health.

I absolutely love Kemp Dental! I’ve been a patient for approximately 6 years now and the service I receive is unmatched. My dental hygienist Tara, is AMAZING!!! And she actually saved my life…(I’m a little extra but she definitely brought attention to a health risk I was not aware of). I went in for my routine 6 month visit and this specific morning Tara asked to take my blood pressure. I exercise regularly and thought I had a pretty decent diet. Well, my blood pressure was high that morning — she checked it 3 more times before I left and advised that I check with my PCP as soon as possible. With some simple lifestyle changes it is now controlled. Thank you so much Tara & the team at Kemp Dental for the wonderful services you have provided me & now my son through the years. Even at 7am, it’s a joy to walk into a dentist office anxiety free because I know I am in good hands.

Every experience I have at Kemp dental is outstanding and every single member of the team exemplifies professionalism, respect, and technical ability in their respective job function. Moreover, an important component I value and is clearly valued at Kemp Dental is the Christian values, as they are lived out in all interactions! This one particular appointment was an emergency appointment and Kemp Dental was able to schedule me on short-notice, and when I arrived, my diagnosis was that a crown was needed…. I was pressed for time, however, that did not deter Dr. Kemp and his team (Denise was the main dental assistant) from taking immediate focused action to complete the procedure timely without compromising the utmost care. Dr. Kemp even decided to create the temporary crown himself, and as time-consistent proven, he did a fantastic job, creating a personalized perfect fitting temporary crown! I was out of the office ahead of schedule and the time initially estimated! Thank you Dr. Kemp, Denise, and the rest of the Kemp Dental Team!!

What a great experience! Excellent patient care in scheduling appointments, helping with insurance issues to guidance for future appointments. Nice, kind and informative (Thanks Christy)…My dental hygienist and Dr Kemp provided excellent dental care. It was all such a pleasant experience! I am happy I chose Kemp Dental!

Cathey Bissinger (Source: Google)


Referred by a friend and I’m really glad I was… the staff was impressive to say the least. My generation was one that “feared” the dentist but Brittany made me feel comfortable… Dr. Kemp was very professional and Christy has helped me multiple times. All in all my confidence replaced my fear…5 stars for sure!!!

Dawn Walker (Source: Google)


Dr. Kemp and his team have been taking care of me for many years and each time I am there it renews my appreciation for this practice. They are always professional, experienced, attentive, descriptive, and upbeat. In my opinion this is the best practice in Nashville… Please do yourself a favor and go there!
