Your Dentist in Chattanooga
Shallowford Smiles offers Chattanooga families prime access to complete oral health care for every age. Our facility serves the surrounding areas as well, including Ooltewah and East Brainerd.
We Love Kids!
Dr. Wilkinson loves working with our pediatric dental patients from Chattanooga, Ooltewah, and East Brainerd. Many of our patients come to us from local schools, such as St. Nicholas, where Dr. Wilkinson helps out as a coach for the rock climbing team.
Speaking of rock climbing, Chattanooga is well known for its residents love for this daring outdoor activity. One of our favorite places to hang out is High Point Climbing Gym. High Point offers everything from drop ins to summer camps at their indoor rock climbing facility. Open 7 days a week and as late as 10pm on Saturdays, you can get the climbing “itch” out of your system no matter what the weather is like outside.
Creating Beautiful Smiles in Our Community
Dr. Wilkinson volunteers his services with Hope for the Inner City, a Christian community outreach organization. Their mission is to restore the dignity of the needy, primarily in East Chattanooga, through offering compassionate services and support that move them from dependency to self-sufficiency. Hope for the Inner City provides reduced fee dental treatment for at-risk and underserved people living in and around the greater Chattanooga area.
We also provide life-changing smile makeovers right here in our office! When you visit us, we can take a digital photograph of your smile and input it into our virtual makeover system. This allows you to digitally “try on” cosmetic treatments like porcelain dental veneers, teeth whitening, and dental implants before you ever start the actual procedures. You can even print a photo out to take it home to show your family or to get input from friends.
Places to Visit in Chattanooga
One of the most popular places for family outings and field trips close to Ooltewah and East Brainerd is the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. If you go, be sure to plan ahead and order a discount package for their IMAX 3D Theatre and River Gorge Explorer. The boat has a climate controlled cabin so that you can sit back and enjoy nature’s scenery without getting splashed.
Another great spot is the Creative Discovery Museum of Chattanooga. Also open 7 days a week, their unique exhibits spark creativity and imagination in children of all ages. If your family is a member, you can get discounts on workshops and summer camps for kids. There’s even a separate area for birthday parties.
Shallowford Smiles is also a very short drive from Hamilton Place Mall. Their anchor stores include Belk, Barnes & Noble, Sears, JC Penney, Dillard’s and Forever 21. After your checkup, you can swing by to do some shopping before heading back to Ooltewah or East Brainerd. We won’t tell!
