Best dentist experience I’ve ever had! I decided to come to the Nashville Smile Team because I was having some jaw pain (TMJ) and they are close to my house. They have been nothing but kind and easy to work with! They were able to see my right away and I’ve been back for a follow-up appointment/cleaning since my initial appointment regarding pain. The dentist and staff pay great attention to detail and I feel like they actually listen to me (plus, they are unbelievably kind)! The actual office is nice and clean. They are working with my insurance to see what can be done about costs but also very good about explaining my upfront costs. I would highly, highly recommend!

We live near Nashville Smile Team and selected going there from a neighborhood flyer. We’ve now been going to Dr. Rushing since Jan 2020 and both my husband and I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with everyone there. After a procedure that took longer than normal, Dr. Rushing and her staff took the time to explain everything thoroughly and made us very comfortable. We would (and have) recommend Dr. Rushing and the whole team at Nashville Smile Team.

I had my routine teeth cleaning yesterday. I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive about going to my appointment due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But – I have been a patient of The Nashville Smile Team for many years and I totally trust them! Dr. Rushing and her team have always adhered to all CDC/ADA/OSHA recommendations and guidelines. Because of the pandemic, they have put even more precautions in place to minimize risks. While I was there, they followed their protocol perfectly -both for me and for theIr team – before during and after my cleaning. Believe me – as a RN – I was watching. Kudos to this awesome team!! I felt very safe and comfortable being there. Thank y’all for all you do! Anyone needing a great dentist give The Nashville Smile Team a call! You won’t be disappointed.

I never realized there was such a thing as a crappy dentist till I went here… Because I now know all other dentist I’ve ever been to were crap! Everyone from the reception to the dentist were amazing to work with! Very thorough, informative, and very friendly on top of being GREAT at what they do- it was a treat! I wish all people did their jobs as well as everyone in this office. I’ve never been impressed with a dental experience until now. Also- they are up to speed on technology (email scheduling notifications, contact via email, and more) and have a Keurig in the lobby for guest! I’m love this place!

Dr. Rushing and her staff are top notch. Very professional, yet down to earth. Dr. Rushing is very thorough. She takes her time, and explains the most beneficial route of dental care for you. Her assistants are very observant to the needs of their patient, ensuring you have the most comfortable experience. I have been to numerous dentists in my life. I drive two hours to receive my dental work from Dr. Rushing. Enough said!

Dr. Rushing is the best! I have a real fear of going to the dentist and avoided finding one for three years after moving to TN. She has been supportive, patient, and really attentive to my anxiety as she has gotten my teeth back into good shape! Her office staff is amazing, too! I highly recommend Nashville Smile!

The most friendly and professional staff, from the moment you check-in at the front desk, to your appointment with the hygienist and Dr. Rushing. They do a fantastic job of explaining each process and making you feel comfortable/being gentle with your mouth. Great dental team!

I’m one of those many people out there who has a “dentist horror story”, making it difficult to get comfortable with or warm up to a dentist, so I tend to delay my dentist visits. I didn’t realize, until I visited Nashville Smile Team, that my problem all these years wasn’t necessarily that I hated going to the dentist, it was that I never had a good dentist that made it enjoyable. When I entered the building, I had anxiety initially, but ended up being very comfortable during my visit with the Nashville Smile Team, and am very disappointed that I’ll be moving in a few months, given that I’ll have to roll the dice on another dentist in a new state. I most certainly recommend all of those out there mulling “should this be my dentist?” to give them a shot, and I’d be willing to bet they’re going to change your perception of what a dentist visit it supposed to be like. I will 100% be recommending all of my family and friends to the Nashville Smile Team.

As much as I hated to lose a big tooth, the whole experience was almost “lovely” . . . NO pain, tiny bits of pressure, Doc had to tell me when it was out. The level of caring for me as a patient is unbeatable: I would “write home about it” if I had a home to write to. Great treatment! Likewise, my experience with “deep” cleaning and xrays was almost pleasant, too. The only thing I would like to improve upon was my own “gag reflex”. Also great!

Just want to say I was referred to the dentist here. I just recently had my second appointment and will be returning periodically. All of the staff are very nice and friendly. The office was clean and modernized. I would recommend anyone to make an appointment. They are awesome.

After 20+ years of not having proper dental care I mustered up the courage to finally address. Tiffany did an amazing job with my dental cleaning, no pain at all. Additionally, Dr. Rushing just filled 5 cavities for me yesterday, I must say, she gave me 3 shots.. I literally felt NO PAIN, hardly a pinch. WOW! I am beyond grateful that I found the Nashville Smile Team, the care they have provided has completely blown me away. The staff is always pleasant, informative and attentive. Set your appointment today, you won’t regret it. Kudos to Nashville Smile Team

I can not say enough about how wonderful Tiffany is! She is by far the best hygienist I have had the pleasure of seeing! She makes sure to explain everything so that you understand and answers any questions you have. She definitely went above and beyond for me! I haven’t had that much interaction with Dr. Rushing but so far she has also been great! The office is clean and top of line and the front office staff is friendly and inviting. I plan on sticking with Tiffany as long as she is working!

It’s usually not so fun to go to the dentist…BUT, these guys are GREAT! They make you feel very comfortable, they’re extremely gentle and heck, they’ll even give you something to calm your nerves if need be! The staff is over the top friendly and professional. I use Dr. Rushing and she’s fabulous!

My experience at Nashville Smile Team was phenomenal, from the time I walked in until the time I walked out. I’m one of those people who always research and try to find the best. I can truly say my research paid off. They have everything to make your visit a pleasant one. Trust me you will be making the right choice.

Bridget Galvin (Source: Facebook)


I can’t say enough about Dr. Rushing and her team. You are not just a patient you become part of a family of sorts. You feel cared for and encouraged whether it’s a teeth cleaning or dental surgery.

As always the best!! I’ve been a patient there since Dr. Coulter first opened his practice many years ago. He cut back his hours, and for quite a few years now, I’ve been seeing Dr. Rushing. She is an awesome person, and an exceptional dentist. Very honest, trustworthy, and caring and gentle. The whole staff; hygienists, assistants, front desk, they are all wonderful. They are all like family!

Jessica Liederbach (Source: Google)


Dr. Rushing and her staff always make sure the patient feels comfortable and understands the procedures. Her availability is wonderful and she genuinely cares about her patients. I have referred a couple of people to her now, and am happy to have found such a wonderful dentist.

My crown came off and I had to find a dentist quickly to re-attach it. I just moved to the area and had no idea where to go. I landed on the Nashville Smile Team during my search and called them. They were able to get me in within 45 minutes. Took care of business and I was back at work. Super friendly, caring, knowledgeable. Not pushing (eventually I will need to get a new crown), but making me aware of my options. All of the associates that I came in contact with are genuinely friendly and make you feel at ease. I truly recommend Dr. Rushing and her team are simply fantastic.

I’m a 55 year old Army Vet and I have been to many Dentists in my life. And for the first time I found the best! Today I had 4 fillings done at the Nashville Smile Team office, Doctor Kristin Rushing was my Doctor. and she was wonderful in every-way.. I’m so glad I found this dentist! They are in touch with the 21st century and have state of the art technology. And the staff are warm, comforting and professional. When your here you are treated like you are family you feel and know you will be taking care of you even hear it in there voices. You will feel relaxed because Dr. Rushing and her team are passionate about the work you need done, and passionate about doing it right. Highly recommend 5 out of 5 stars from me!

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


I have had some horrific dental experiences in the past (unnecessary procedures and dropping out of network and not telling me until all 6 family members had cleaning, x-rays and fillings). Needless to say, my trust meter was on “0”! It is so refreshing to find Dr. Rushing! She does excellent work, her hygienist is thorough and gentle and her office staff is careful to make sure that my insurance will cover procedures BEFORE they are done. Not to mention, her new office is beautiful! I give her a 5++++!!!

I will never go to another dentist again!!! Dr. Rushing and her team are the absolute BEST. My body literally panics at the thought of going to the dentist. I was extremely comfortable at my appointment, and everyone was so friendly. When I scheduled my appointment, I had some issues with insurance. Yvonne, the patient coordinator, spent nearly 30 minutes on the phone trying to help me and communicate with my insurance company. Throughout the process she was so kind, and she genuinely wanted to make sure I understood what my costs would be. Once I got in the office, Cynthia cleaned my teeth. As she was cleaning and inspecting, she explained everything she found and gave me tips. It felt good to know what she was doing along the way. At other dentists, they clean your teeth and don’t say much until the dentist comes in. However, that was not the case here. Dr. Rushing was awesome as well. I explained my anxiety, and she made sure she did all she could do to make me comfortable. I searched and searched for a dentist that was good with dental anxiety before I came across this office. if you panic about going like I do, schedule your appointment with Dr. Rushing. I PROMISE you will not regret it!

I am so thankful I found “Nashville Smile Team.” I have had dental issues all my life. Dr. Rushing and staff are polite, kind and courteous. They care and make sure your teeth and gums are healthy with preventative care. If you need a dentist “Nashville Smile Team” is professional excellence. I highly recommend!

I can’t say enough great stuff about this place!! The nicest staff. The best care. Totally affordable. From the moment I first contacted them I felt valued. Upon my first visit the staff made me feel right at home. I went in for a cleaning and left with new dental family. I took advantage of their membership plan (a great value) and have already made my next visit appointment. Thank you so much!!!

Such an incredible staff at Nashville Smile Team. From the moment you walk in until the the time you leave, you are greeted with smiles and friendliness by all. The care given is extremely professional and thorough. Im so glad a co-worker recommended them to me! I wont go anywhere else!

Found this hospital through my insurance provider search and booked an appointment as I live close to this place.Visited today for regular dental check up and the service was great. Dr.Tiffany treated me and she was great at her job. Dr.Kristin did a final examination after the testing and cleaning was done and I recommend this place for your dental health.

I just switched from another dentist to Dr. Rushing. My only regret is that I didn’t switch much sooner. I was told by my other dentist that I needed major dental work totaling thousands and thousands of dollars. Dr. Rushing gave me another option that was able to totally fix my issue in about 10 painless minutes for under 100 bucks. Talk about relief! She was super nice and patiently explained all my options and everything she was doing while she worked. Also, she told me about water flossers.. which just changed my life. Thank you!!!

I’ve never had such a great experience at a dentist’s office like I have at the Nashville Smile team. The whole team is very warm and welcoming and I know that I’m in good hands there. They are always so kind and they also work really well with insurance. They make your experience as comfortable as possible and they even have a tv you can watch while you’re getting your teeth cleaned (and a massage chair!) They are in a brand new office which is VERY nice and They really care about their patients!! I’ve been going to them for 3-4+ years now. I love Nashville Smile Team and recommend them to all of my friends and family!

After so many different dentists, I’ve finally found a place I feel confident, comfortable and excited about the future of my smile! Struggled for many years with bad dental work and from the front office administrative team, dental assistants and of course Dr. Rushing have been nothing but amazing,hopeful and positive. Also have struggled with dental insurance and how it doesn’t cover much, their loyalty program gives you the opportunity to save money and the referral program is a bonus!

Bridget Galvin (Source: Google)


We love Dr. Rushing and the whole team! You really know they care about your well-being. And, I think it’s very note worthy that they are involved in the community they serve. Had dental surgery yesterday and felt cared for and comforted. Dr. Rushing called to make sure I was doing ok. Also offered her number in case I needed her.

Before I give my recommendation, there may be value in saying that in my early careers I was a dental assistant, a dental office manager, a dental hygienist, and then became a teacher of dental radiology and clinical… So I feel qualified in saying: this is an extremely well-run dental office with state-of-the-art technology, personalities and techniques that are way above many/most I’ve seen in my careers. You can choose this dental office with complete confidence for yourself/your family/your friends.

Well, my biggest fear in life is simply walking into a dentist office! I was incredibly surprised when the warmth and kindness by the staff had such a calming affect on me. And Dr. Rushing was wonderful. I have a lot of dental/implants work that must be done. She was great I explaining the precise work and cost of each stage of my procedures. I sincerely appreciated that information as it gave me a thorough understanding of what was going on. After 1 appointment, this is the only dentist i need. Highly recommend!!!!!

If you’re looking for a new dentist, congrats you found her. The Smile Center is for you, the staff is kind & comfortable. They care about you as a person & patient. I’ve never had a dentist as great as Dr. Rushing, she is kind & beautiful. This is coming from a patient with a lot of dental needs and hesitant on judgement. So in that fact, know you can rely on this team, they’ve got your back.
