Dr. McLemore III's bio

This content was provided by Dr. McLemore III "“I enjoy being able to use a combination of art and science to improve my patients’ quality of life and build relationships. I can’t imagine anything I’d rather do.” Dr. Pete’s interest in dentistry began years ago as a child when he would spend his summer vacation helping his dad in the dental lab. Today, Dr. Pete enjoys creating healthy, beautiful smiles in the Jackson community. Dr. Pete and his wife, Nancy, have three children, Jay, Rachel, and Thomas. All three are now married and have followed in their parents footsteps by pursuing careers in the healthcare profession. Their dogs, Sadie, Beau, and Sam provide the “pitter-patter” of paws in the house now that the nest is empty at the McLemore house! Staying healthy and active is important to Dr. Pete. In high school and college, he ran track and cross-country. Dr. Pete still enjoys running and working out at the gym. More recently, he has become an active member of Crossfit Jackson. Local and foreign missions are close to Dr. Pete’s heart. He partners Nathan Young of Jackson’s Care Center, providing dental service at no charge to the ladies served by this ministry. He has participated in a number of medical/dental mission trips to Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Haiti, serving the dental needs of peoples in remote regions and sharing his love of Christ.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McLemore III "At McLemore & McLemore, DDS, we envisioned a place where we could continue to bring excellence in dentistry to the people of West Tennessee, while improving the dental experience for all patients. Incorporating spa-like services seemed to be the answer. "We wanted to improve the health of our patients while creating a unique dental experience. Our goal was to replace negative, past experiences with positive ones", says Dr. John. With input from staff, friends & family, we tested different services and products to discover what they could offer to promote a pleasant, relaxing experience for those they serve. And the results are in... patients love spa dentistry!
