Why Choose General Dentistry at Vanderbilt

    We help you understand your treatment options and create a plan tailored to your health and needs.

  • A team approach

    If you are about to begin cancer treatment or expect to have surgery soon, we work with your medical team to be sure you are free of dental disease before you start those treatments. We also work with you to help prevent some of the dental and jaw complications of radiation therapy for the head or neck. No other dental practice in Middle Tennessee has this type of relationship with a cancer center.
