I’m not a fan of the dentist, like most people, but they really made me feel comfortable! The entire staff was very kind. Their sense of humors really helped with my usual nervousness at a dental office. The dentist, Dr.Ammal, did an amazing job! I had to have a root canal and it was nearly painless! They were also very good about working with me about paying since I don’t have insurance. All in all, it was a great experience and I can honestly say I’m officially going to be a Smileaway regular!

A great dental office with modern equipments and State of the art decor. Very clean place, no or very short waiting time. Dr Veena is well experienced and has extreme patience with clients, take time for any procedure, never hurried. Kim, Danielle,, and other staff are excellent – friendly and professional. Overall its a great team of professionals, been a client ever since it started, would recommend anyone.

Don’t like going to the dentist, in fact have avoided at all costs. But sometimes there’s just not a choice! Dr Ammal & her team are spectacular! Gentle, calming, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable…. knowing I’m going to have an extended procedure with a commitment for follow up way more often than I would have previously even entertained! That made me feel so comfortable, safe & heard it was natural to agree happily to the plan. Highly recommended by a trusted friend & I will definitely recommend to everyone!

A Friend told me about this office and I am glad he did. I hate going to dentist, but this office made me feel comfortable and at home. The staff is great. They have a professional but humorous way about them. I didn’t feel any pain at all. Dr.Ammal is a nice lady and cared about my feelings . I will continue to go to this Dental office:)

I Don’t like going to the dentist, but my first visit they made me feel at ease and comfortable. They have a great sense of humor and are professional. I Needed a payment plan because I don’t have insurance, and they worked with me on making payments so I could get my teeth fixed. I Now bring my whole family here.

The staff is very friendly and informative, and the environment is extremely clean! There are also additional safety measures in place due to COVID. It’s always a hassle trying to find new providers, but I’m so happy I found SmileAway. Dr. Ammal is very helpful, and she takes the time to ensure procedures are done correctly and that clients are comfy and happy. The staff also does a great job at working with clients to schedule appointments that work for personal schedules.

I couldn’t ask for better customer service or any better dental work they will ensure your receive the treatment you need. Dr. Veena Ammal and her staff make sure the comfort of the patient is always their first priority. They really do take care of you and they ensure that all questions are answered before you leave and if needed after you leave. I would HIGHLY recommend SmileAway Family Dentistry to anyone one and any age.

My experience at SmileAway Family Denistry was excellent. I, like many others, do not enjoy going to the dentist. These folks went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. My visits have always been completely painless. They are very patient centered and caring! I would recommend this group of professionals to anyone who is looking for a great dentist! Dr. Veena Ammal and her staff will take good care of you! Go see her!

This is the first dentist that I have gone to that doesn’t hurt when you get those shots in your mouth. This is also the first dentist that calls you personally to check up on you after a visit. I will not be going any where else any time soon. I love the atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff. I just love SmileAway.

Peggy Rains (Source: Facebook)


I started going to SmileAway in 2016 and now I will never go anywhere else! Dr Veena Ammal and her staff make you feel completely comfortable and they ease all your fears. If you are apprehensive about dentists, go see see Dr Veena Ammal and her crew and you won’t want to go anywhere else!

I have to say, it was a very nice experience! I havent been to a doctor of any kind in decades. That includes the dentist, but I needed 2 wisdom teeth pulled and I was in some pain, so I didn’t have much of a choice. I dont like pharmaceuticals for health reasons, but I also wanted to try this naturally because I have an extremely high tolerance for pain and I thought it would be interesting to find out if I could take it. Now I know what you’re thinking, but I thought it would be fun. Anyway, the dentist wouldn’t agree to it. And I actually think she got the impression I was afraid of the shot, because she got somebody to hold my hand. She was cute and funny though, so I rolled with it. They had a great sense of humor and we laughed a lot. I think I’ll go back for a cleaning.

I had an emergency situation two weekends ago. The major dental bridge fell off on a fateful Friday late-night and had a memorable/miserable night. I pretty much tried to reach almost all (several dozen in google) the Dentists in Memphis on Saturday morning. Dr. Veena Ammal, DDS was the only doctor I could able to reach (rest all answering services). She calmed me down and was extremely helpful in advising me over the phone. She proposed a temporary solution and which helped me to avoid further damages in addition to the misery. Her team also helped me to arrange the first appointment on Monday morning. Instead of multiple visits and milking of the situation, she gave me various options best for me and addressed it pretty much immediately (avoided multiple visits especially considering the COVID).
My prior experience with another dental group was not that great despite spending over $10K(the whole family). Her entire team was too nice and friendly to me. We need such professionals in an emergency situation like this.

I cannot say enough about good about Dr. Ammal and her staff. Kimberly greets you with a warm and wonderful smile and attitude. (Even with a mask you can feel the joy in her eyes) Danielle is personable and sweet and always has a good conversation during your cleaning. Dr. Ammal is an absolute joy – her work is concise and her personality makes you feel like family! If you’re considering a new dental family – THIS IS THE ONE!!!

Great 1st time experience with the smile Away team. From front office crew to MD. Exceptional service. I was informed of my needs, provided options and recommendations, and not pressed into any services, however assured that I would be taken care of. Dr Ammal put me at ease as I’ve had some bad experiences at other dentist establishments. She assured me that I was in good hands. And I was. Everything went well, better than well, everything went GREAT…Im a patient now….Ive found my new dentist office. Thanks everyone…

My husband and I love the good folks at Smile Away! Kim is always so friendly and such a pleasant face to see when we walk in. Danielle is knowledgeable about preventative oral care and she always does a great job on our cleanings! I’ve had my fair share of dental work done by the SmileAway family and although it hasn’t always been a painless process, the end result is excellent. I highly recommend their dental services!

I am somewhat hesitant to post a review until I have completed work with a company. Sometimes when I give a great review, my next visit is usually not good. After a 2nd request, I decided to review SmileAway Family Dentistry in Trinity Commons Shopping Center, Cordova TN. I am half way thru my procedure and cannot emphasize strongly enough that this Dentist and her Staff are absolutely the BEST. Everyone in the office, from the receptionist, to the hygienist, the assistant, and Dr Ammal are unbelievable. I don’t like going to the dentist and had put off having work done, as long as I could. The office appeared to be extremely clean! Even with Coronavirus going around, I felt completely safe. They changed their gloves very often, all of their equipment was covered with a plastic film, there was no worry there. There was nitrous oxide available and I gladly chose to use it. In summary, I didn’t have a dental visit, I had a dental experience. I am looking forward to going back to finish my procedure and would recommend them if you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg for your dental work, but still want professional service. They are excellent. The receptionist even walked to a neighboring store and purchased a milk shake for me. Who does that? Nobody else that I know of. SmileAway is the best!

I broke a tooth over the weekend and they were able to get me in on Tuesday. This was my first visit and I felt like I had been going there for years. Everyone was so friendly and made me feel welcome. The dentist is very thorough when explaining the procedure and options. I will be switching to this office for all my dental needs going forward!

Great first experience at SmileAway Family Dentistry. Everyone is very kind, professional, and easy to talk to. Dr. Ammal is very knowledgable and helpful. She provided tips throughout my visit to taking care of my teeth and I left feeling clean and with new inspiration to care for my teeth. 🙂 Thank you!

The workers at the front desk are so kind, professional, and accommodating. The dental assistant did an amazing job cleaning my teeth. I have a permanent retainer and dental assistants at other offices I’ve been to don’t take the time to thoroughly floss and scrape off the tartar. Also, I was so impressed with the dentist. She sat next to me, introduced herself, and made eye contact with me and asked me questions that made me feel she really cared for me and my dental health. I cannot recommend this office highly enough!

Stacy E. from Memphis, TN (Source: Yelp)


I hate going to the dentist (the staff here can confirm this!!) putting off needed things way too long! I was pleasantly surprised at how professional they were even though I was very nervous. They were all patient and understanding, and I made it through my filling without any pain or discomfort. No pain the next day either. I would recommend them to anyone who asks!

David R. from Cordova, Cordova, TN (Source: Yelp)


I have always dreaded going to the Dentist since I was a child. Being reluctant to change, I had gone to the same dental group for probably 20 ++ years. But when they raised their rates and stopped taking my particular dental insurance, I found myself in the unfortunate position of needing a new dentist. A friend recommended Dr. Ammal at SmileAway Dentistry on Germantown Parkway and I’m glad they did. Everyone in her office was nice and cheerful which helped put me at ease. They were able to work me in when I stopped by after a tooth acted up over the weekend. .Dr. Ammal explained my issue, didn’t try to oversell me, and prescribed a course of action. The office had employed all the new necessary safeguards due to the Covid-19. I guess the only thing that would have made it better was if they had a box of puppies to play with in the outer office. Impractical I know but a fun idea.

SmileAway Dentistry has excellent customer service. Everyone greets you with a warm smile. No long waiting time. It means a lot when the dentist reaches out to her patients after a procedure. Thanks SmileAway!!!

I absolutely love Dr. Ammal and her staff!!! I initially called to make an appointment for my son in April on a Thursday. I spoke to Kim and she set the appointment up for Friday because my son couldn’t get off that day. She even told me to call her back if that day wouldn’t work for him and she would fit him in somewhere. I was like WOW! We’re new patients and Kim was working with my son’s schedule. My dentist was booked until that next Thursday but I was in a lot of pain so I just asked if they could possibly see me. She said yes can you be here at 11am? I said yes ma’am and I’ve been going there since. From the time I walked in, I was treated outstanding! I found out I needed 3 root canals on the same side and that’s why I was in so much pain. Shereka was the one who took my X-rays and she was so down to earth. I wasn’t nervous but being that it was a new dentist, I just didn’t know what to expect. Shereka made me feel so comfortable just by talking to her. She was funny but stayed professional and it was so welcoming! Dr. Ammal came and introduced herself first then she explained what needed to be done. She gave me antibiotics for the infections and pain pills and sent me on my way. That Friday evening, I received a call from Dr. Ammal herself just checking on me!! I was in awe because she took the time out of her evening just to check on me! As of today, I’ve had 2 root canals and Dr. Ammal has called to check on me after every one of them! Dr. Ammal is so gentle and even though she always tell me to raise my hand if she hurts me (which she never does), she still stops and ask me throughout the procedure to make sure I’m okay. I know it’s long but I wanted to make sure anyone reading this could see how caring, considerate and compassionate this office is! They actually care about their patients and work hard to make sure you get the care you need! I absolutely loved my old dentist but Dr. Ammal and her staff are so outstanding that I changed offices!! You won’t regret seeing her and her wonderful staff!!

I have been going to Smile Away Dentistry since moving to the area seven years ago. They are always friendly and informative. The doctor and hygienist are courteous, gentle, and respectful of my needs. Yesterday was my most recent visit and I was happy to see they have extra safety measures in place due to COVID. All staff wore masks and require the same of customers in addition to conducting temperature checks upon entering the clinic. Keep up the great work all.

a dental team that truly cares about their customers. They have the technology and compassion to deliver the truth and take care of your oral needs. I love this staff. They work well together and I never felt like a number or just a patient. Every time I am welcomed and asked genuinely how I am doing…you will leave smiling and confident you received the best care in the midsouth!

I’ve been going to SmileAway for years and have always had a great experience. The moment you walk in the door, you are greeted by a warm smile and friendly hello! The dental hygienists are so careful and delicate when cleaning your teeth. I know this is a major concern for most people, but they truly are amazing! Dr. Ammal and her staff are the best in the business. Hands down. Check them out if you want someone who is great at what they do and truly care about you and your family’s dental hygiene.

Your Review I Have a Severe Dental Phobia. However, after meeting and Consulting with the SmileAway TEAM I am Positive that that I made the Best Choice! From the Front Receptionist, to The Hygienist, to the Dental Assistant and All the way to the Doctor, I experienced Nothing Less than Professionalism, Kindness and Assurance that I would be Taken care of and Satisfied. I Love them All…All Ready ❤

I have searched for a dentist for years that made me feel comfortable and at ease! They have done that and manage to keep my anxiety at bay. They are even wonderful with my children! We love it! Would recommend to anyone!

From the moment I called to make an appointment and talked with Kimberly I felt like I was already a patient. Kimberly listened to my chief complaint in regard to my reason for needing an appointment. I was given an appointment within a few days. The office was located in a great area not to far out. The office atmosphere was neat, clean and warm. The front Medical Office Professionals were very personable and knowledgeable. Both dentist assistants was very detailed and pleasant. The first assistant she kept me updated on what procedures that she was going to perform be doing them. Dr. Ammal was so sweet, professional and very thorough. I have found my New Dental Family!! Thanks for the Warm Welcome!!

I enjoyed my experience with Veena V. Admmal DDS. I was greeted at the front desk when I walked in by the dental hygienist who was going to be completing my oral cleaning and evaluating my Intraoral mouth images. I was concerned about my unfinished root canal and she ensured she can complete the procedure and pricing along with a treatment was provided to me at the end of my visit. At the end of my visit, the other dental hygienist explained my bill and treatment plan. Thank you for the 1st Responders/Military Discount, USAF, always! So far Aetna Dental PPO is great! Highly recommend SmileAway Family Dentistry Veena V.Admmal!

I always have a great experience when I visit SmileAway Family Dentistry. Everyone in the office treats you like family and truly care that you leave satisfied with the service they provided. Without fail, they ask me how my wife and 11 month old son are doing. It’s the little things they do that make the biggest difference.

Patricia Vaughn (Source: Facebook)

Dr Amaal is very good at what she does. The entire staff (Danielle, Dental Hygienist & Kimberly,reception) that I interacted with on my visit were nice and great at explaining procedures and prices. Everyone seems to really enjoy their job. I will be going back and will be referring some of my co workers and friends to them!

I always have a positive experience when I come to SmileAway. The staff are very warm and welcoming and make you feel as comfortable as possible. The wait is never long and the teeth cleaning is thorough. Even though I only see them twice a year, they remember personal things about me and my family that makes me feel cared about and listened to. I highly recommend them!
