Our Patients Leave Glowing Reviews

"I've been treated by Dr. Kinder for over thirty years. I wouldn't go anywhere else. He has helped our children through braces and me through root canals and crowns. Besides being a wonderful dentist he is the kindest person I have ever met. If you want to be treated kindly, fairly and professionally I couldn't recommend anyone other than Dr. Kinder."

Featured Services Available At Our Knoxville Practice

Our office specializes in many dental care procedures to improve your health and help you meet your cosmetic goals. We provide this wide range of options so patients can get all the care they need at one trusted office. These are some of our most popular services:

Chao Pinhole® Gum Surgery

This minimally invasive technique is a comfortable way to treat gum recession without the long recovery time of traditional soft tissue grafting.

ClearCorrect aligners allow you to achieve a straighter smile while still enjoying all your favorite foods. Virtually invisible, these comfortable aligners are a great alternative to braces for patients with mild to moderate dental misalignment.

Straighten Your Smile With ClearCorrect

Dental Crowns

A dental crown can restore a cracked, decaying, or otherwise damaged tooth. It can also improve the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth. Our crowns are made from natural-looking materials that make them virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.

Tell Me About Crowns


Veneers are thin shells placed on the front of the teeth to conceal cosmetic imperfections. Our veneers are made from durable porcelain that can be precisely matched to the shade of your surrounding teeth.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Our office offers treatment for patients struggling with obstructive sleep apnea. We can make a custom oral appliance that helps you enjoy more restful sleep.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the only way to prevent jawbone recession after losing teeth. Dr. Kinder can place implants directly into your jaw to provide unparalleled support for a crown, bridge, or denture. Securely in place, implant-supported restorations look and feel natural.

Friendly staff. Always a clean environment. I appreciate they talk with you and educate you on being ‘proactive’ with your individual dental needs. I have NEVER been ‘sold’ something I didn’t need nor do they push ANY additional services that are unnecessary. I appreciate and enjoy everyone that works there!

So today I came in to have x-rays taken and have my teeth cleaned. What a great experience. The Dental Hygienist (Tara) was amazing. She was thoughtful, asked important questions to always keep me comfortable and was a great conversationalist and educator through the process.
