Sullivan Dental has not skipped a beat when it comes to patient services, even with the craziness of Covid-19. They are taking all the necessary precautions to keep themselves and their patients safe. So much so that I felt completely safe having an implant procedure during this time. Their staff is wonderful! Thank you for providing excellent dental needs for my family.

I love them, it was my first visit to them (been to many dentist before) but this one started with great information about my teeth that I no other dentist has brought to My attention before very helpful and professional by providing what options I had and what to expect from them if I stay a client.This regular cleaning was great didn’t feel like they were crazily scrapping my teeth and gums with no PAIN and no blood I just love it. I am new client and for now I will walk this dental road with them and see where it lead me (hopping for the very best) so far so good all I have to say is Thank You.

The staff is great. The dentists seem to love their profession. I am more relaxed in their office than any other dental office i have been to. They had solutions for some tricky dental problems…some of the problems were caused by other dentists! This father and son team make for a very big experience/ knowkedge base.

I have been a patient of Rick and his staff for 47 years, beginning with his father, Rick Sr. When I was 7 years old. Extremely knowledgeable & friendly staff with all of the latest and greatest equipment. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a new dentist. Keep up the good work Dr. Sullivan!

Moved from Philly and looked for another great dental practice. I found it. Terrific people working to make you have a comprehensive and comfortable experience. I had several issues and they were all addressed. Doctor Sullivan has a perfect manner and disposition. I had a through cleaning and will return for further treatment. I would rate this practice 5 star.

Sullivan Dental partners was referred to me by a coworker and I’m glad I was! They treated me so well, it was a very comforting and a relaxed environment. I went in for a root canal and the procedure was painless, they played great music and we danced through the whole thing! I have to get my wisdom teeth out in the near future and I will be staying with Sullivan Dental Partners for that! Overall great experience and people! Thanks 🙂

Paula E. from Brentwood, TN (Source: Yelp)


The dentists and all employees are very professional and kind. They go out of their way to be helpful in arranging appointments and to provide the best care available. They have the newest equipment available which cuts down on number of visits and wait time. If you are looking for a dentist, this place is home!

The Team at Sullivan Dental Partners is 1st rate! I had an incident more than 20 years ago where I knocked out one of my front teeth while training for football. At the time, my then dentist recommended a Maryland Bridge implant, suspecting with my sports future, it might get knocked out again. It lasted well for 15 or so, then my top jaw bone began to recess and create a divot above the implant. Enter Sullivan Dental Partners after a recommendation from a friend, we met and established a plan to repair/grow new jaw bone and install a new permanent implant. The process was not a short one, nor for the faint of heart, but the team was professional, courteous, thorough and in the end, did an amazing job. I highly recommend the Team at Sullivan Dental Partners!

When you choose a medical professional, the hope is for a competent Individual with good people skills. Dr Richard Sullivan has been my dentist for more than ten years. He far exceeds the expectations I had. I recommend his services with no reservations. Barbara Edwards

I have a story about a fork and waffle that led me to find Sullivan Dental Partners. And the only reason I chose them was because I couldn’t find any dirt on them unlike several others I looked up. I’ve had horrible dental experiences over the last 10 years, but upon my arrival, I was made to feel at ease and help me with my dental anxiety. I haven’t had my cleaning/repair visit yet, but the consultative visit was great and if it is a precursor to what is to come, I believe I’ve found the next dentist partner for me and for my family.

I’ve been a patient for over a year and Sullivan Dental Partners has always done a great job, been super helpful with scheduling and very personal. They have all the latest technology. Prior reviewers were annoyed by the practice’s promotion of sleep apnea testing but I think this is a great service for patients – sleep apnea is hugely under-recognized and can increase the risk of hypertension and stroke.

Ok this office is AAMAZING. I have a one year old and live far away so it makes scheduling appointments hard UNLESS it’s with this office. I was late and they were so kind about it. They helped my MIL entertain my son in the waiting room while I had my tongue tie revised. Last but not least Dr. Sullivan did my revision so efficiently and I was out of the office faster than I could have ordered lunch. It hurt for about 2 hours and is already feeling a lot better! I have so much new range of motion in my tongue and I’m just amazed. It’s only day one, but I know this will improve my quality of life. THANK YOU Dr. Sullivan. Awesome awesome place.

Caroline V. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Sullivan since I moved to Nashville in my 20’s in the early 2000’s. Now my whole family comes here and we love it. They are consistent and conservative – they don’t recommend expensive treatments unless you really need them. They’ve let me go a while with some really old fillings, which I appreciate. Their customer service is great. We are in and out for appointments. A great practice!

Jill B. from Brentwood, TN (Source: Yelp)


Our family has made Sullivan Dental  “home” for 3 years after visiting several other dentists in the area. We cannot say enough positive things about Dr Richard Sullivan and Dr Sully Sullivan. They both do excellent work and the entire practice is warm and personable. Though they have some of the latest technology, the office still has a quainy, homey feel.  The entire family loves getting their teeth cleaned by  Kendall. She’s a great  hygienist and is very gentle with  kids. She explains what is going on in a way kids can understand…we think of her as a “Disney Princess” for teeth! This practice  has also done some great  pro bono work for children who can’t afford dental care. They truly go above and beyond in  every way.

Being new to the area I had yet to find a dentist but go figure I needed one on a Sunday afternoon after waking up with some pain in my jaw. I found Sullivan Dental Partners through an on-line search and saw they had great reviews. I called on a Sunday evening and left a message on the emergency line with hopes that I could get an appointment sometime the following day. Dr. Sullivan called me back within minutes and told me to come in first thing in the morning. The staff was so kind and caring. I will 100% recommend this practice. The technology is above and beyond any other dentist I have visited. 5 star service!!

If you need an amazing Dentist with a wonderful and caring staff look no further!! I highly recommend this office to everyone especially if you have anxiety about going to the dentist. The office staff, the assistants, and the doctor made me feel extremely comfortable!!!

Adeline P. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I love it here! The offices are really nice, there’s never a wait and everyone is so kind. I absolutely hate anything being done on my teeth, but the Sullivans and their hygienists (shout out to Kyndall and Mary Pat) make it so much easier for me. If you’re looking for a good dentist, go see the Sullivans!

Alexandra Cannell (Source: Google)


I had the best experience here! The hygienist was super thorough and personable. The dentist was the same! I also really appreciate the precautions they are taking for COVID-19 and feel that their process was very easy and straightforward. Love that I was able to fill out all paperwork on my phone. So glad I found this place.

When I had a major dental issue, I chose Sullivan Dental. 4 generations of dental excellence gave me the confidence to trust them with my tooth extraction and implant. They were clearly very experienced with this level of work and did an wonderful job. After the bone graft, they will install the new tooth. Thank you for the amazing job on a tough removal.

Amanda C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I broke a tooth over the weekend. I went online and scheduled an emergency visit for when they opened up. They were able to treat me that day and were very transparent about everything and made sure I was getting the best treatment plan possible. I was very happy with the quality of care the provided and the timeliness of the whole ordeal. Friendly staff, compassionate and professional. I would refer to anyone.

Patricia R. from Brentwood, TN (Source: Yelp)


I’ve moved to Florida but still consider Sullivan Dental Partners my #1 choice for dental care. I schedule my appointments when I am visiting family in Nashville. It’s a small office with a friendly, caring and professional staff. Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Sully keep up with technological advances to provide the very best care. Highly recommend Sullivan Dental Partners.

I have been a patient for 27 years and they are the best dentists! They have the latest equipment and the staff is wonderful and very helpful with insurance questions and booking appointments, especially when you have a painful tooth They! They are very proactive with Covid protocols, too.

Sullivan Dental partners are the best. I had a situation 20 plus years ago where I had to have serious work done on my front teeth. I moved to the Nashville area 7 years ago and couldn’t find a good dentist. A couple of years after moving here I had a trauma to one of my front teeth. The solution, from the dentist before finding the Sullivan Partners, I did not feel like they were being honest. I tried another dentist and same thing. It was so bad before finding Sullivan Dental Partners that I went back to the city I lived prior to coming to Nashville to get advice from my old dentist. Then back in Nashville I found Sullivan Dental Partners. They were honest and straight with me about a plain of action and a solution that was in line with my dentist from where I used to live. They did a tooth extraction and implant. The process was great and Dr Sullivan does amazing work. My teeth are very important to me and finally finding a great honest dentist like Dr Sullivan, I will use them as long as I live in the Nashville area. I will never change dentist. Also all of the people there are friendly and the hygienist do great work. My wife had been using a dentist closer to our home and we changed insurance. Her dentist wouldn’t respond to the new insurance. She tried another dentist closer to our home because her mouth was hurtng. That dentist saw her didn’t really address the pain and set her up to have crowns done on 2 teeth. She was still in pain so I asked her if I could try to get her an appointment at Sullivan Dental Partners. I did and they addressed they pain that same day she was there. They also said she didn’t have to have the crowns. The crowns might need to be done later. Again if you want a great dentist that is honest and does great work go to the Sullivan Dental Partners.

I have been going to Dr. Sullivan since the age of 10. After moving back to Brentwood, I knew exactly where to go for my dental needs. Dr. Sullivan and his staff are absolutely excellent and hands down the best in town!

LaToya P. from Smyrna, TN (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love Dr. Rick Sullivan! My son had a toothache from his wisdom teeth and I called the office after hours. He immediately called me back, gave my son an appointment for the next day and did his extractions on his day off!! He definitely put his patients above all! Pam is my hygienist and in my opinion she’s the best… If your looking for a dentist with a family feel, I’d definitely give them a try!!!!

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


Dr. Sullivan and team went out of their way on Friday to ensure that my appointment was kept despite the snow that accumulated all week. I was able to move my time an hour earlier and received a great cleaning. I also had a quick adjustment by Dr. Rick. The team was super professional and engaging through the entire visit. I love this place and look forward to each and every visit. Thank you all again for being open and taking of some many people during Covid 19 and snow storms. I encourage all of the Yelpers who are looking for a great place with awesome people to make a appointment and experience what it means to have zero anxiety with dental issues.

Ronald H. from Smyrna, TN (Source: Yelp)


After moving to Tennessee my wife and I have been to a few other dentist. We were disappointed with quality of the service. When we found Dr Sullivan and his staff very very friendly and very knowledgeable. We are so pleased with the office that after moving back to Florida we continue to come back for our dental visits. You won’t be disappointed.

I had to find another dentist since my last one retired. I thought she was wonderful. I end up at Dr. Sullivan’s for a first time appointment. They did a 3D scan and thorough x-rays along with pictures of my gums and teeth as part of their initial consultation. Then, lo and behold, Dr. Sullivan finds a molar with resorption (mine was an interior pulp problem not visible with normal x-rays). This issue can only be seen on a 3D scan. Who knows how long it’s been there? It’s very close to the nerve and could eventually have been a problem if it had not been found by this knowledgeable and thorough dentist! He recommended I see an endodontist for evaluation. The hygienists are also very skilled. Many thanks to Dr. Sullivan and his team!

Really appreciated them taking the extra effort to communicate on open schedule slots as my schedule moved around. Everyone is very friendly and could not have been easier getting in and out for a quick cleaning. Have had two procedures here as well and no complaints. I drove out of my way to come here.

I’ve used Sullivan Dental Partners for my dental needs since moving to Brentwood. The staff is friendly, the doctors are thorough, and they have some of the most amazing technology while in the chair. They created a 3D view of my mouth and were able to show me every issue from any angle! Their team demonstrates a commitment to exceptional care through extensive ongoing education. Every time I visit, I know I’m going to receive excellent care. Whether you need routine cleaning or restorative care, Sullivan Dental Partners can handle your needs!

Ryan M. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


This is a practice that truly cares about the quality of its patients’ care and seeks to do the thing that is best for them. I had been away from a dentist for a while and developed a nuanced case that Drs. Sully & Sully developed a treatment plan for that didn’t jump straight to expensive or immediate invasive procedures. I appreciated their willingness to explain the considerations and rationale for the treatment options. Will definitely recommend them to everyone I know!

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


These guys were great! They were skilled, knowledgeable, thorough and fun! I get why Sullivan Dental has been around for some many generations; only businesses that really take care of their customers can last this long. Thank you all for doing such a great job keeping me smiling and keeping my smile looking good!

Janet Raymond Adler (Source: Facebook)


I always refer people to them. I love how they can do it all in office from cleaning to implants to gum pocket surgery. My whole family has been going there since I was referred to them in 1997. Great in emergency situations too. Can’t wait to see the new building finished. Keep doing what you do so well. 5 stars.

I’ve been going to Dr Sullivan for a decade now. My very first experience was when I was in search of an honest dentist after being quoted over $20,000 of “urgent” dental care elsewhere. Dr Sullivan took care of all my problems in a caring, thorough, and practical manner. I’ve spent my life afraid of the dentist until becoming a patient of this practice. The entire staff is kind and helpful. When I did need more than a cleaning I appreciated the ability to be sedated for a panic free procedure.

Carla C. from Franklin, TN (Source: Yelp)


I’m surprised no one has reviewed this practice before. It is FOUR generations of dentists, so many that my hygienist told me they’d run out of variations, so the youngest dentist is nicknamed Sully. They do 4 bite wing x-rays but the coolest thing is their 3D x-ray! It can go ‘through’ your jaw, roots, teeth and even sinuses like a CT scan. I was in awe. I even got to see the hole where a nerve comes through my jaw. My hygienist was Kyndall (I hope I spelled it right) and she was really awesome, friendly and funny. I’ve gone to other dentists who, even though I floss daily and brush twice a day, told me I had pre-cavities and needed all my crowns replaced. Sullivan let me know I didn’t have anything wrong and my teeth were immaculate. They didn’t try to push anything on me which I was grateful for.
