If your children have Tenn Care don't bother with this office. They made my children wait to get fillings and would only do one filling at a time. It was going to take over a year for my daughter to get two fillings so she could get her ortho consult done, however, my husband had private insurance and they were able to see him the next day. In May of 2012 I called to make my children an appt they gave me an appt for August that was fine, in August they called to tell me the office was going to be closed for a week they needed to rescheduel for October ok so that was fine they went in october got cleanings, back in January to get a filling next appt available for my 6 year old I was told would be in JUNE! Needless to say I switched to bad because we need a dentist office in Blountville who is willing to see children with TennCare

Staff here is excellent. We have 4 children and all have been taken care of extremely well. Staff was very accommodating to our schedules and followed up appropriately with us.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
