We love our wonderful patients, and apparently the feeling is mutual! Here are a few of the kind words we have received…
Brogdon Dental you are the best! Thanks so much for the awesome gift and the wonderful report on my cleaning today – A beautiful smile is a happy smile! -Tammie D.
I’ve been a patient here for nearly twenty years, and the wonderful staff has always been so friendly and thorough. Angela is my hygienist. She is kind-hearted and attentive, and she has always taken excellent care of my teeth. The office staff has always provided outstanding service, the best I have encountered at any doctor’s office. I’m a teacher and they even file my claims with HCDE for reimbursement. (That is a service that is not provided at my son’s dentist office, and while it may seem minor, it is very helpful for this busy teacher!) I expect to grow old with the folks at Brogdon Dental; I am very happy with their care. – Sally W.
I have been patient of Brogdon Dental for many years and have always received excellent care. The staff is very caring and go out of their way to be friendly. The practice has keep up on all the recent updates for dental care. I would recommend to anyone looking for dentist. – Robert D.
As always, a visit to Brogdon Dental is an experience not to be duplicated on a visit to any other dental office. The staff is ultra friendly and more than willing to make your visit a pleasant one. In all this time, I have had numerous dental procedures done, and I have never had one moment of pain or discomfort. My family and I have been patients of Dr. Joseph Brogdon, Sr., and now of Dr. Joe Brodgon, Jr, and Dr. Josh McKinney now, more than 35 years, and cannot say enough about their treatment and service. If you want a good dentist, with no pain and no hassle, I recommend them 100%. – Sally S.
I’ve been going to Brogdon dental for years now and would never go anywhere else. They are so gentle and kind! I take my daughter there and she has no fear of the dentist thanks to them. The office staff knows your name and I look forward to my dental visits! – Torri H.
Come in and see us in 2018 and join these patients who highly recommend our services and our staff. We look forward to seeing you!
As 2017 comes to an end, we at Brogdon Dental would like all our patients to know how much we have appreciated the opportunity to be of service to you and your families. If we have put a smile on your face where you didn’t have one before we are truly thankful.
We look forward to more smiles in 2018!

We’ve all heard about the benefits of a cup of coffee. Things like protecting your liver, reducing the risks of heart disease, cancer and diabetes are well known but did you know that coffee can also help your teeth by preventing bone loss in the jaw and may help to protect your gums? If you drink coffee in moderation, the nutritional benefits can outweigh the bad such as tooth staining.
You should limit your intake to less than 5 cups of coffee a day, since more than this can over stimulate you and may interfere with your sleep.
If you are worried about staining, try drinking or rinsing your mouth out with water after your coffee. As with any acidic drinks that can soften the enamel, do not brush your teeth right after your coffee but wait about 30 minutes so the enamel on your teeth can harden again.
So don’t give up that morning joe! Just remember, no more than 5 cups and drink water or rinse after your coffee. For more information about teeth whitening, call Brogdon Dental at 423.870.5698 to see what we recommend or to schedule a consultation.
We at Brogdon Dental would like to wish all our veterans, especially those who are our patients, a wonderful Memorial Day. Thank you for your service to our country and for the freedoms we have because of your sacrifices. You are not forgotten. Keep Smiling!
