Dr. Ames is really nice. Friendly and care about my needs.
Patient | June 26, 2017

Dr Ames takes time to here what you have to say. He sent me to a specialist when he found lesions in my mouth just to be safe and I was diagnosed with Cowden's Disease and I owe it all to him taking the time and being so thorough.
Patient | June 26, 2017

I've already given a referral.
Patient | May 31, 2017

Dr. Ames did a fabulous job fixing a small chip in my tooth! He and his staff were very thorough about the procedure that they would be conducting on my tooth and they took an x-ray of the tooth before any work was done to it. I was extremely satisfied with the results and I would highly recommend Dr. Ames for any dental needs!
Patient | May 22, 2017

ALWAYS a good experience! Dr. Ames is an awesome dentist! I pray he outlives me because I'll not go to another dentist!

Dr. Ames took extra care and time with me for a new crown. My son and my husband have both switched their care to Dr. Ames!
Patient | December 21, 2016

Outstanding! Wish I had come sooner. Will recommend.
Patient | December 19, 2016

Dr. Ames is great. Seemed very concerned and noticed another problem I had and sent me to a specialist always very helpful and takes time to explain.
Patient | December 12, 2016

I usually need extra medication to numb the area before dental care. The dentist remembered from the previous visit and gave me extra to begin with which decreased my anxiety that the procedure might hurt. He made sure I was numb before beginning. Dr. Ames hasn't been at Vanderbilt long and I'm very fortunate to have him take over my care.
Patient | November 5, 2016

I had a strong phobia re: dental offices. Had not been in one in OVER 25 yrs. Dr. Ames (and Amanda) have been phenomenal in helping me. I first saw them for an emergency visit. Now I can go for a dental appt. with Dr. Ames (only) willingly. I TRUST him, plus he is an excellent dentist.
Patient | September 1, 2016

Dr. Ames is wonderful! By far the best dentist I have ever had.
Patient | August 30, 2016

Dr Ames and staff are priceless!!
Patient | August 30, 2016

Dr. Ames is very understanding. He makes sure my needs are met. He explains what he will be doing that day. He's said 'I want you to have a good dental experience.'
Patient | August 22, 2016

Good MD - great - help &... problem,... me -
Patient | August 15, 2016

Great experience - a very thorough check up for a first time visit - much better than my previous DDS of 15 years.
Patient | August 12, 2016

Very professional & competent.
Patient | August 10, 2016

Dr. Ames has a great personality. I find him consistently timid in his evaluations - like he is scared to provide an opinion. My husband and I have both had this experience with him. This visit I felt like he was dismissive of my particular problem and invested limited time in _____ me.
Patient | August 1, 2016

Dr. Ames is very personable and friendly. Takes the extra step to check in on you and make sure you are doing well or have any concerns.
Patient | July 26, 2016

Dr. Ames is very patient, kind and compassionate. I would recommend him to anyone.
