Dr. Torti and Kay were GREAT!. I've got a pretty good phobia when it comes to doctors and dentists. They made me feel as comfortable as possible. It was as great an experience as a root canal can be. My family will be going to this dentist from now on.

First impression is very important. The appointment was about me and my problem. He did not go on and on trying to sell himself, instead he helped me to understand and decide on the best solution for the problem at hand.

Procedures Performed

Dr. Edwards says..

When you hear the name Tennessee Centers for Laser Dentistry (TNCLD), you may think "specialty office." Actually though, the firm is a family, cosmetic and general practice that uses lasers and other technologies to provide a modern and much more pleasant dental experience. Our office utilizes high-tech equipment in order to provide with the best dental care possible. Some of our office technology includes:

  • Lightwalker: Our high-tech dental laser system.
  • CEREC: We create our own crowns in office, custom measured to your mouth. Completed in one visit!
  • OralID: Is an adjunctive screening device that uses fluorescence technology to help clinicians identify oral abnormalities through a simple 2 minute exam.
  • Schick: Enables us to provide greatly improved diagnostic capabilities to our patients while significantly lessening their exposure to radiation by up to 80 percent over the old film X-rays.
  • Sedation Dentistry: Imagine drifting off to sleep and waking up with the dental procedure you've been dreading complete!

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
