Ted is the best in Nashville... period! I got vanners by Dr. Unland in 2005 and I've never had a problem. He makes you feel so comfortable and he doesn't make you feel any pain and PAIN is something I've not liked in my dentist in my past. The ladies in the office are incredible and so sweet. You can tell everyone loves their job. Thanks Ted!

I have been a patient of Dr Unland's for over a year now. His staff is always friendly, The quality service starts just as you walk in the front door with the receptionists, to the dental assistants, Dr Unland & most especially with the insurance clerks when it comes to figuring out your bill. They are very eager to explain what your insurance will or wont cover -- so you arent caught off guard. When it comes to working on my mouth -- I am a big wimp !! But the assistants & Dr Unland always put me at ease. I would most definitely recommend Dr Unland & his staff to anyone with a beautiful smile!!

He has a great staff, they are very friendly,and attentive they really make you feel welcome. I live on the other side of town but it is worth the drive to see Dr. Unland.

I love coming here! I have been a patient here for over 2 years and have moved twice (I now live about 40 mins away) but I still come here to let them take care of my teeth. Everyone in the office is nice and friendly. Dr. Unland is very approachable and knowledgeable. I know getting dental work done isn't enjoyable but they try to make the experience good for you.

Dr Unland and his support staff are the best I've ever been to. I drive from Smyrna to go to Unland Dental because I am treated so well and the service is so good.
I visited Dr. Unland's office for the first time yesterday and the experience was great from start to finish. Friendly and compassionate staff welcomed me and provided professional yet engaging services. Dr. Unland was thorough in his exam and recommendations. I will definitely be back!

Dr. Unland, Anna, JoAnn, Teresa, Tracey, Kandis, Tammy and everyone on staff treat us more like family than patients. We constantly recommend them to our family and friends - all of whom have felt as welcome and well-cared for as we do. They have a state of the art facility and use the latest dental techniques to promote our dental health and keep us smilin' :). They work as a team to provide excellent service - not only in cleanings and other services, but also with insurance, billing questions and appointment reminders. There have been times when we had emergency dental needs - and they are always very accommodating. THE MABRYS HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE FINE FOLKS!!!

Personal, professional & so responsive! I've been with Dr Unland for 12 years now & he and his team are just as friendly & responsive as his 1st year taking over the practice. I've had several crowns and several unexpected teeth issues & his staff worked hard to get me in quickly & take care of it. Coolest thing ever is their ability to do a crown all in one day: 2 1/2 hours! No temporary, no 2nd appointment in a few weeks when crown is ready.
—Kathy Combs
I cant say enough about Dr Unland and his staff!! From making appointments through billing, everyone is helpful, courteous and very professional yet add a personal touch to everything! Dr Unland is so kind and patient in everything -- not only is he a great dentist and cares for your whole mouth, but he also treats you with respect and caring. He takes care of my whole family and we wouldn't go anywhere else and recommend Unland Dental Center to everyone!
—Leslie Ohrin
Ted did my vaneers 10 years ago and they still are perfect. I had to get a extraction earlier this year with no pain at all. He's also got all the best equipment used out there. See you soon... or at least I hope not in the chair.
—Jeffrey Breedlove
Amazing staff and Dr. Ted Unland is funny, professional, and even works on my two small children's teeth.
—Mincy Hines
My family and I have been going to Dr. Unland for years now. He has a very friendly staff and they are always accommodating to my schedule. I referred my mother to him this year. When she was a child her teeth were stained from the medicine tetracycline. Dr. Unland worked with her to give her a new smile. Her self confidence has soared and she now smiles showing her teeth. Something she hasn't done since she was little. We love Dr. Unland and will continue to give him our business!
—Jenny B.
I just got done getting a previously defective crown replaced (from a terrible previous dentist). Dr. Unland and his staff are beyond incredible. They made me comfortable and did an awesome job. I never leave positive reviews, but this staff deserve the praise. Dr Unland even took a selfie with me while doing the procedure. What a cool guy! Thanks again for a great job.
