RUN!!! Dr. Snodgrass is EXTREMELY rude!!! I paid $1000 to have my son's 3 baby teeth pulled, due to Dr. King's recommendations of "crowding" , a year later there is no sign of permanent teeth. Dr. Snodgrass wasn't the one treating my son yet TODAY he said they knew the permanent teeth would not be in a year later. He also said he could not tell from an x-ray a year ago and an x-ray today and examining my son's teeth today if my son's four bottom teeth were straight because he wasn't the one who examined my son's teeth. Absurd! I'm an x-ray tech and of course you can see if teeth are straight in an x-ray! Why take them?! He refused to listen to me and my questions and opinions, even though I felt entitled, since I did spend $1000 per their recommendations and my son has no teeth a year later. My son's teeth are tiny with lots of space and perfectly straight and Dr. Snodgrass would NOT here rationale from me REGARDING A REASON for them pulling his 3 teeth! He kept insisting his teeth must have been crooked in order for Dr. King to have taken out 3 a year earlier, even though the x-rays and physical exam clearly show them to be straight and identical a year later. I asked him twice where do we go from here and he said my son needs EXTENSIVE orthodontic work. HAHAHA! I WISH I could post a pic of my son's teeth and x-rays! I said, "Not here"! I'm 40 years old, seen LOTS of Drs in my life and worked as an x-ray tech with my Dr. husband for 13 years and I have NEVER met such a rude Dr. in my life! This is the first bad review I've ever written and is necessary!!!
We took our 4 1/2 -year-old daughter there for the 2nd time at a different location thinking that it might be better. At her first visit Dr. Snodgrass held her down to exam her teeth, which I didn't think was smart when she was scared already. This time they took her back to do x-rays by herself and came to get me during the cleaning when she was scared. They wanted to try to do it without me. She did a great job during the cleaning. Afterwards the hygienist told us that she had 6 cavities and would need crowns because fillings come out easily and would probably need replaced more than once.
We met with the financial lady and she said it would cost us about 600. They recommend she be put under anesthesia for the work and seemed annoyed when I asked if there was anything else that could be done instead. I am thankful for the other post on here and will get a 2nd opinion.
I would NOT recommend this practice. These negative posts are fully accurate. This practice is all about unnecessary, aggressive procedures on children. They already put two crowns on my 8 year old when he was 5 years old. Today, they recommended two more crowns for him, insisted he needs multiple fillings and wanted to pull a tooth and put in a spacer. I have never heard of so many procedures on such a young mouth! Then, they recommended two caps for my 3 year old. Dr. Snodgrass was rough with my 3 year old, who finally told him, "You have to be careful!". I didn't stick around to hear about what the bill would be on all of this. I'm sure it would pad their pockets nicely. I won't be back. And by the way, I'm a physician, and my children's pediatrician who is very well-respected in the community has said the same thing about this practice -- "overly aggressive."

This is a great local dentist office in Franklin. I personally know the team that runs this office and they are very caring and passionate professionals. I read the other reviews and they didn't seem very accurate at all. I would completely recommend this business to friends and family!
I will NEVER go back. I had to have a crown and they wanted the full amount of the crown paid in advance to RESERVE the dentist..they use scare tactics and over charge..
Truly horrifying experience. Got ortho and dental for my daughter at Snodgrass King in Cool Springs. They recommended so many things that she didn't need. Worse than that, they hurt her every single time we were there. She is now getting braces for the second time to fix what Snodgrass King did to her with their braces. Like Oprah says...if you doubt...don't! Go ANYWHERE but here for your child's dental/ortho care and you will already be ahead no matter who you've chosen.
Awful ...!! Don't go here TIED DOWN CHILD w/o telling paren – Dr. Snodgrass may be a rich dentist with the biggest house in Brentwood, but I would not take my child there again. Several years ago, I took my young son there and they required that I wait while they took him away for what should have been a basic procedure. My son was terrorized by the inhumane restraining methods WITHOUT EVER COMMUNICATING THIS TO THE PARENTS. I understand that young children may be difficult to treat due to movements, but it should be a choice of parents if this method is used. I don't know what else they did without my knowledge or permission as well....
Wanted to do extensive work on my child for no reason – I took my 7 year old daughter to this dental practice for a cleaning. They told us that she had three baby teeth with cavities, which needed to be capped under anesthesia, and that she should have all of her molars (including baby teeth) sealed. I was not shown any xrays and we were rushed out of the office by the entire staff. I did manage to ask one question about the caps-were there any alternatives? They insisted that caps were the only option. I took her to a well-respected pediatric dentist in Nashville for a second opinion. The second dentist said that she absolutely did not need any work done. There were no visible cavities and her x-rays only showed a few very tiny areas that had the potential to become cavities, but he recommended a good flossing regime and regular cleanings to handle the problem areas. He also said that if the problem areas did require any work in the future, simple fillings would resolve the issue and chances are she would lose the teeth before reaching that point . He told us that insurance would not have covered any of the work Snodgrass-King wanted to perform and we would have ended up paying a large amount to do completely unnecessary work and put our daughter through the trauma of anesthesia. I am furious that Snodgrass-King wanted to put my daughter through so much, not to mention give her mouth full of metal, for nothing! If this review keeps another child from being mistreated by them, it will be worth the time I took to write this.
Beware! – this guy tried to tell me my 7 year old needed 4 crowns! when we got a second opinion, he needed none - just 2 fillings. This guy is known all over town for doing unnecessary work. I highly recommend taking your children elsewhere. The lobby is fun for the kids, but beware of the overpriced, unnecessary work on baby teeth no less!
