Meet the Doctor
Reginald D. Booker, DDS

Our patients put a great deal of trust in the quality of care we provide, and in turn, it is my responsibility to exceed their expectations in every way. This started with my dental education at Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry, where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery and continues today with courses and seminars on the newest treatments and techniques in dentistry. Continuing my education allows me to provide my patients with more effective treatment options and procedures.

I am grateful to work in the field of dentistry, and I absolutely love helping people achieve optimal oral health. I gain great satisfaction from treating patients and being a positive factor in their lives. My desire to help people obtain the smiles and health they want drives me to become a better healthcare provider, and I make certain to give them the care they deserve.

What Our Patients Are Saying
  • Have not been to the dentist in many years (my fault). Had an issue with a tooth, called the office and got in the next day. All the staff there were great and Dr. Booker, put my mind at ease, explained in detail what needed to be done and why. If you are looking for a family dentist, look no further. Great place to deal with! - Brian

  • Dr. Booker and all his staff are very professional and friendly. I needed work done while pregnant and afterwards. They all took great care and Dr. Booker took the time to explain what he was doing and put me at ease. Also, if you have difficulty getting numb as I do, he is super patient and great at figuring out how to still get the work done and keep you comfortable. Highly recommend. - Michelle

  • Dr Booker is a great dentist and his staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The flexible hours for appointments work great with my job. - Dustin

Your Initial Visit

Preparing for Your First Office Visit

Going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience, but we do everything we can to make our office warm and welcoming. We want your first visit to our office to be a good one, and we do everything in our power to make sure you have a positive experience.

When you visit our office for the first time, you will receive an x-ray designed to make diagnosis and treatment of common dental problems easier. The x-ray shows not only the structure of your teeth but the underlying bone as well. This makes the diagnosis of dental problems easier and helps set the stage for the rest of your dental treatments.

We will also ask you about your medical history when you visit our office for the first time. Compiling a detailed and accurate medical history is important, since dental care is an integral part of your overall health care. We will need to know about any past hospitalizations and operations, as well as any prescription and non-prescription medications you are taking. Knowing your medical history and current health status will allow us to design a treatment plan that is safe and comfortable for you.

Regular Checkups

Your first dental checkup is important, but it is only the first part of maintaining your oral health and bright white smile. We encourage you to have regular routine wellness exams every 6 months, since having regular checkups is the best way to detect problems early and treat them promptly.

We recommend that all children 3 years of age and older have regular checkups every 6 months. All adults should be on the same 6 month exam schedule. No matter what your age, having routine dental exams will:

  • Allow us to check for dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease
  • Let us find tooth decay early and treat it promptly
  • Allow us to detect the early warning signs and treat you quickly

When you arrive for your routine dental appointment, the hygienist will also give your teeth a professional cleaning and polishing. Regular cleanings are important, since they help to remove plaque buildup that could lead to tooth decay.

The dentist will also check the health of your gums and teeth to look for tooth decay and gum disease. At the same time, the doctor will examine your tongue, cheeks and mouth to look for potential oral health issues. Depending on the outcome of the exam, we may provide you with additional guidelines for brushing and flossing your teeth, and with product recommendations to keep your mouth even cleaner.

You do not have to spend a long time or disrupt your schedule to keep your smile looking great. Our regular dental checkups take less than an hour – you can expect to spend about 45 minutes from start to finish.
