Outstanding Care, Great Experience

Dr. Shipp and his staff provide outstanding dental care. Everyone is courteous and cheerful, a human answers the phone, appointments are easy to make and the building has plenty of parking.

Clearly, Dr. Shipp is well trained and highly skilled, and the professional fees are reasonable. I can enthusiastically recommend Dr. Shipp and the Belle Meade Smile Center to anyone wanting a great dentist.

I Cannot Praise Him Enough!

Simply a wonderful dental practice! I've been a patient of Dr. Shipp for over 20 years. He's always been patient-first-focused.

If there are options he discusses these with you so you can make an informed decision. He's a man of his word and I have complete trust in him.

Thankful to Have Found Them

This was truly the best dental experience I have ever had! I am so happy to have found my forever dentist office! I tend to put off dentist appointments because it can cause me some anxiety, but my experience today was so smooth.

Janet, the receptionist, made scheduling and the initial registration process so easy! I had zero wait time. Audrey, the hygienist, was amazing! She was so thorough.

She explained every part of the process and was extremely gentle yet definitely got the job done. My teeth have never felt cleaner!

Dr. Shipp was so punctual, kind, and is clearly very experienced. It truly is a wonderful office and I am thankful to have found them!

Seven Years And Counting!

Dr. Shipp and his staff is simply the best in every regard. Over my lifetime of 50 years, I have had multiple fillings, several crowns and two root canals from various dental professionals.

Dr. Shipp is the most competent, kind, professional, and efficient dentist I have had. I love how he utilizes the latest technology to make the process painless or at least less uncomfortable (e.g. the shot he gives is nearly painless compared to others, due to a special tool).

I moved to Bowling Green, yet still travel back to Nashville for The Belle Meade Smile Center, it’s worth the drive. A friend originally referred me, whose father was a dentist, so she knew what great dentistry was. I highly recommend Dr. Shipp and The Belle Meade Smile Center.
