Moves and Expansions: Children’s Dentistry Builds New Location



If you build it, they will come… 

Just ask Dr. Andy Reed. After just five years in business here in Gallatin, his pediatric dental practice will soon be expanding into a spacious new facility located at 1710 Nashville Pike in the Kennesaw Farms development on Gallatin’s southwest side. At the same time, his practice, now known as Children’s Dentistry, will get a new name: Sumner Pediatric Dentistry. 

A lot has happened since Dr. Andy launched Children’s Dentistry of Gallatin in 2011. “I’m originally from the Nashville area and thought Gallatin might be a great place to settle, but honestly, I wasn’t 100 percent sure,” admits Dr. Andy. “I knew that our services could benefit Gallatin and Sumner County, but we wanted to test the market before making our commitment.”  

Dr. Andy initially cared for patients in both Gallatin and Clarksville before making the decision to establish permanent roots in Sumner County. He opened his own private practice at 200 South Westland near Sumner Regional Medical Center in 2011. “I leased this particular office space because it was associated with a reputable, established practice located in the heart of Gallatin,” Dr. Andy remembers. “We started small, hoping that the practice would be successful and grow quickly.”  

It did. There was an unmet demand for pediatric dental services in Gallatin and as the city’s only board-certified pediatric dental specialist, the practice has boomed. By their third year in business, Children’s Dentistry of Gallatin had already experienced growing pains at their 1,800 sq.ft. office and Dr. Andy began looking for the perfect site to build a stand-alone dental facility. “My wife and I took our time because we wanted to be strategic about choosing our final practice location,” he notes. “Most of Gallatin’s future growth will be on the city’s southwest side, and that’s where we wanted our practice to be.” 

Since its launch, Children’s Dentistry of Gallatin has amassed an enthusiastic fan base and has been tapped as the best pediatric dentist in Sumner County several years in a row. For Dr. Andy, the staff’s skill level is their primary differentiator. “When you’re working with children and special needs patients, choosing a board-certified pediatric dentist can mean the difference between a child looking forward to their experience or absolutely dreading it,” says Dr. Andy. “We hope to make coming to the dentist fun for our patients, while giving them access to state-of-the-art care that promotes excellent oral health. We love our patient family and we love serving our community.”
