The Nashville Center of Aesthetic Dentistry

Whether you are a newcomer to the area or have been here for years, chances are you have heard about Brentwood’s own Dr. Dennis Wells, owner of the Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry. Dr. Wells has a reputation for transforming smiles artistically with ultra-conservative techniques. Although Dr. Wells has designed the smiles of many celebrities, models, executives and others in the public eye, many of his clients are small business owners, family managers and homemakers. Together, they have one thing in common: the desire to present their very best smile as they connect with others.

Dr. Wells and his team have received accolades, awards and rave reviews from their clients for the beautiful, artistic results of their custom-designed smiles as well as the overall experience of feeling welcome and pampered throughout the process. Dolly Parton simply states: “I believe Dr. Wells is the finest.” A Brentwood mom has shared online: “We will forever be grateful for the amazing service, beyond comfortable dental office and the most awesome end result we could have hoped for.”

In the pageant industry, Dr. Wells is known as someone who understands the art of designing smiles. He has been able to enhance the smiles of several candidates for Miss USA, taking their smiles from good to great without doing any harm to their natural teeth. Miss Mississippi USA 2018 Laine Mansour, says: “My experience with Dr. Wells was nothing short of amazing! He knew exactly how to perfect my smile in a subtle way using prep-less veneers. I am forever blessed by his expertise and care!”

While he is quite visible as a leader in the field of cosmetic dentistry, there is another side of Dr. Wells that you might not know about. With his humble and generous nature, he instinctively finds ways to share with others through charitable giving without bringing attention to himself.

In addition to their cosmetic dental work, the team at the Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry has brought smiles to the faces of others in our community and around the world through their philanthropic efforts throughout the years. Fundraising efforts in memory of Dr. Wells’ late son, Dustin, have resulted in donations of over half a million dollars to the W. O. Smith Music School here in Nashville, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and several other charities. The NCAD team also provides teeth whitening in return for donations to the Smiles for Life organization, benefiting children’s charities both locally and worldwide. Over the years, they have raised in excess of $200,000 for this cause. Dr. Wells and his team, along with members of his family, have also provided humanitarian outreach in Mexico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, as well as at Interfaith Dental Clinic here in Nashville.

Not only has Dr. Wells been recognized for his advances in cosmetic dentistry, but he has also become known for his character. As a matter of fact, he was recently bestowed with the honor of knighthood by the Royal Order of Constantine the Great, one of the oldest orders of knighthood in the world. The invitation to knighthood was extended to Dr. Wells in recognition of his honor, integrity, service to others and charitable support of those less fortunate. Because of the high standards the order requires, members are accepted only based on personal significant achievement, professional accomplishments and high social standing.

Dr. Wells and his wife, Doris, are actively involved in the culture of Brentwood Academy; their sons, Luke and Landon, are currently enrolled as student-athletes there. Over the past 35 years, Dr. Wells has created a legacy of change—changing smiles, changing lives and changing the world we live in through charitable outreach.
