Meet Dr. Kemp

Dr. Phillip Kemp has been practicing family and cosmetic dentistry in the Nashville area for more than 20 years. He is a national and international speaker in cosmetic dentistry. His passion for dentistry flows from a heart that loves to help others look and feel their best, so they can go and impact the world.

He has served on the Board of Trustees for the Nashville Dental Society and has been very active in the Tennessee Dental Association and the American Dental Association. He is also considered to be an expert on the subject of digital photography for dentists, so don’t be surprised if you see a camera coming towards you!
