As the holiday season begins, we ask that you help us feed the hungry. For the seventh year in a row, we are teaming to support The Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and help fight hunger. Just bring in 35 non-perishable food items during the entire month of November and we will schedule your appointment to have your custom fit trays fabricated. If you already have the trays, bring in 20 items and we will restock your bleach. To provide optimal bleaching results and ensure that prescription bleaching methods are a safe and effective option for you, an exam and recent cleaning are required. Give us a call at 615-254-1393 for further details.
It's that time of year again! For the fifth year in a row, we are teaming to support The Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and help fight hunger. The need for donations is real!

Last year alone we collected over 1000 non-perishable food items that helped feed many of your neighbors here in middle Tennessee. We were, quite literally, TRIPPING over your GENEROUS donations for weeks! In exchange for helping us feed the hungry we are offering FREE CUSTOM FIT BLEACHING TRAYS! Just bring in 30 non-perishable food items during the month of November and we will schedule you for an appointment to have your custom fit trays fabricated. If you already have the trays, bring in 15 items and we will restock your bleach.

Townie Meeting 2015We love seeing you (and your mouths) every day. In fact, we live for it. However, we have to grow and learn new things so we can provide the best care ever. Even better when those lessons can come in the form of a cool work conference...in Vegas. The entire Downtown Dental team recently attended the Townie Meeting in Las Vegas. Townie Meeting is not your average dental meeting: Townie Meeting is not only a reunion for Townies aka members of the largest online dental community (Dentaltown.com); but it is a yearly gathering of all dental professionals interested in education, entertainment and camaraderie: Dentists, Dental Students, Dental Hygienists, Dental Assistants, Front and Back Office Staff, Lab Technicians, and any other dental professionals. In addition to earning those valuable continuing education hours in topics ranging from practice management, CAD/CAM, hygiene, cosmetic dentistry and more, we partied with and become life-long friends with many of your favorite colleagues and also some nationally-known keynote speakers. http://www.towniemeeting.com/ Best of all: we came back relaxed, newly schooled and motivated, and even more eager to see you.
We had a wonderful time at the 2014 NASBA Employee Health Fair! It's always great to see our community businesses emphasizing health and wellness and providing their employees with opportunities to interact with health focused local businesses. NASBA has proven themselves to be a award winning in business strategy, growth, & service along with being recognized in past years as one of the best places to work! It's no surprise that they have a history of focusing on health and wellness for their employees. We were in good company and appreciated the opportunity to show how easily addressing your dental needs can lead to overall health and wellness. As a vendor we spent time speaking with employees about the oral systemic connection that links oral disease and inflammation to MANY serious illnesses throughout the body. There are signs to watch for to see if you are at risk! And awareness of these warning signs are the first step towards better overall health and wellness: And thanks to technological advancements in the dental industry experiencing these signs of dental disease and infection DOES NOT mean that you are in for an unpleasant trip to the dentist. OUR WAY makes treating common dental diseases and ailments easy and pain free.
The easier the treatment, the more likely you are to get and stay healthy!If you are a local business and are looking to provide your employees with more opportunities for education in healthy and wellness let us know. We look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your event!
Last week we launched our 2nd Annual Food Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. The donations have already started to pour in….
Give a little. Receive a little…While they say it’s better to give than to receive, we wanted to find a way to help you do both…. Because we’re so inspired by the generosity of our patients and other downtown residents and employees, we want to celebrate when you give. We are once again going to be offering FREE custom teeth whitening* for anyone that bring 15 non-perishable food products. If you already have your teeth whitening kit, you can bring in 10 non-perishable food items for a complimentary tube of our prescription-strength whitening bleach (22% hydrogen peroxide strength).
2 easy steps to whiten your smile while giving back this HolidayIf you want to take advantage of our offer, all you need to do is: 1) Bring in food items during the month of November. 2) Schedule an appointment to have custom fit trays made if you donate 15 items and want to receive a free teeth-whitening kit. We hope you’ll join us in helping to make other Middle Tennesseans smile this Holiday season. As we continue to help our patients stay healthy from head to toe, we look forward to partnering with you as we pass that opportunity onto the hundreds of thousands of other Middle Tennesseans who might not have that opportunity otherwise. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our office at 615-254-1393! *Note: In order to assure there are no contraindications to the procedure, patients must have had a recent cleaning and exam before Downtown Dental can fabricate custom bleaching trays and prescribe prescription strength bleach.
One of things we love most at Downtown Dental is joining our patients and other downtown residents and employees to give back to our community. Last year, we teamed up with Barbieri Orthodontics to support the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and help fight the battle of hunger in Tennessee. We were blown away by the way you responded! Downtown Nashville residents and employees donated more than 1,000 items and our office was overflowing with donations. Because of your overwhelming generosity, we believe that together we can make even more of an impact this year! Because we’re so inspired by the generosity of our patients and other downtown residents and employees, we want to celebrate by giving away a FREE custom teeth whitening kit. Patients who donate 15 food items will receive a custom teeth-whitening kit, including bleaching trays. If you already have a custom teeth whitening, you can donate 10 food items and receive a free tube of prescription-strength whitening bleach.
The Need is Still OverwhelmingWhile Second Harvest has done incredible things to provide food to those in need in our community, the need is still greater today than ever before…
- There are over 395,000 people in Middle Tennessee who don’t know where their next meal is coming from
- 1 in 6 Tennesseans struggle with hunger
- 1 in 4 children in Tennessee are at risk of suffering from hunger
- 30% of people that receive food from Second Harvest have to choose between food and paying their rent, utilities, or medical bills on a regular basis.
How we can come together to helpDowntown Dental will be collecting food for Second Harvest during the entire month of November (you can see a list of their most need items here). We’re collecting donations whenever our doors are open so you can stop by before work, during your lunch break, or before you head home! Here are a few easy ways you can join the fight against hunger in Middle Tennessee:
- Grab 10 cans of food from your pantry and bring them with you to work tomorrow.
- Look for sales in the weekly newspaper on nonperishable food items. Who doesn’t like getting the most bang for their buck?
- Buy a box of pasta noodles and bring them to your next dental appointment.
- Pick out your favorite cereal and purchase it for that family in need.
What next?It’s simple: 1. Bring food items to Downtown Dental during the month of November. 2. Schedule an appointment to have custom fit trays made if you donate 15 items and want to receive a brighter smile for the holidays. *Note: A recent exam and cleaning is required for safety precautions and to assure there are no contraindications to the procedure. We realize there are dozens of worthy organizations that you can support during the Holiday season so feel free to bring as many items as you’d like. Every bit makes a difference in the life of someone in our community. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our office at 615-254-1393.
They said it couldn’t happen, but it did! A FUN trip to the dentist was had by all as more than 100 people attended our Inaugural BE WELL Party last Thursday. Guests enjoyed live entertainment from Josh Roberts and visited healthy local vendors while enjoying wraps from Wrapper’s DeLight, and a little beer and wine, from Midtown Wine & Spirits and Yazoo. Two lucky guests even went home with a new iPad Mini, compliments of Dr. Daron Clark and his staff at Downtown Dental.“Our goal for this event was to show downtown residents and business professionals that they are surrounded by many healthy solutions in Nashville, said Daron Clark, DMD, Owner of Downtown Dental. “Whether you need medical care, dental care, or even a massage or new running shoes, you can get all of this in walking distance from your home or office.”Guests enjoyed free massages from Jules Massage, free B-12 shots from 3rd & Church Healthcare, discounts from Nashville Running Company and Nashville B Cycle, and instruction and offers from Kali Yuga Yoga.They also received information on the latest in dentistry as Downtown Dental unveiled their new Waterlase iPlus Laser, that enables Dr. Clark to provide pain-free dental care.You can schedule an appointment or call our office today to learn more about how our laser dentistry option can make your next trip to the dentist more enjoyable than you ever thought possible.
If you haven’t heard, the theme our staff has adopted for 2013 is staying healthy from head to toe and we’ve worked hard to keep that pledge going throughout the year. What’s been so inspiring is that many of you have joined us in making that commitment in your own lives from keeping your heart healthy through regular dental visits to running a half marathon.
