Q&A with Kellye Rice, DMD, Dentist and Owner
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Keeping your mouth healthy. Studies show that the bacteria in your mouth has been directly related to many illnesses: heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and even pancreatic cancer. We believe [making] regular [dentist] visits and keeping your mouth healthy will improve your overall health.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
As a young child, I enjoyed going to the dentist. As I grew older, I learned how important a healthy mouth is to your overall health and confidence. Dental care has a significant effect on patients, and I love helping them enjoy attaining higher confidence and healthy mouths.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We are currently in a very populated retail, business, and residential area?Cool Springs. When I opened my practice, there was no mall and very few buildings in the area. In fact, Mallory Lane was a dirt road.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We believe that if a patient is treated with respect, informed about their dental needs, and included in the process of improving their dental health, we can overcome the fear and anxiety that many feel about their dental visits. We are here to coach and inform our patients to help them make the decisions that make them most comfortable.
