Dr. Whaley grew up in Southern California. After receiving his dental degree from Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine, he became a commissioned officer in the United States Navy and moved to San Diego, CA where he was stationed at M.C.R.D. (Marine Corps Recruit Depot). During this time he was mentored by some of the finest specialists in all aspects of dentistry; which became instrumental in ushering him into a new frontier of dentistry… Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Whaley opened a private dental practice in Encino, CA in 1982. His dream to develop a practice of "understated elegance" flourished, catering to people of all aspects of the entertainment business. His cosmetic dental practice grew for 14 years, when in 1995 he married and moved to Nashville, TN. There he has established an Aesthetic and General Dental Practice in the Maryland Farms area of Brentwood, TN. The practice today consists of people from all walks of life. Whether you are a business professional, student, healthcare executive, recording artist, or mother of 4, Dr. Whaley's desire is for you to have the best of dental health, with an attractive smile as you travel life's journey. His clinical team is dedicated to the advancement of Aesthetic Dentistry. As an Accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, as well as other professional organizations, he has maintained one of the premier Cosmetic Dental practices in the greater Nashville area.

Patient Comments (2)
Encino, CA |
He botched the removal of a crown, compromising a root canal on that tooth that required 3 more root canals to save it. His referral performed 2 of the root canals which did not work. Once I left Whaley behind and did my own homework on on who was good, did I get fixed. Whaley always seemed more interested in selling me his services than caring for my oral health.
Being that it is just over 1 month that this remark was posted, I expect that this is a malicious remark made to discredit our business practice of excellent care for our patients. We like to work with patients; co-diagnosing and discussing what we have seen; and then refer to the appropriate specialist prior to commencing with the restorative phase of treatment. I practiced in Encino, CA from 1982-1984; which can be obtained from my profile. I will be looking into this matter further.
Nashville, TN |
You will pay 50% more to have dental work done at this dentist. The service is not consumer friendly and had a very bad experience with the work that was complete. I would highly recommend choosing another dentist who will be more affordable and provide a better patient experience.
We make every effort possible to keep the lines of communication open, especially on the cost for services. It is our policy to give estimates for the cost of any procedure diagnosed. Even before the initial comprehensive examination, costs of treatment can be discussed and insurance benefits verified if we are given the chance. We hope you find your future dental visits to be more to your liking.
