Elijah Brown, DDS taking care of MJ’s smiles PDF Print E-mail

Whether it’s a filling, implant, or a routine cleaning. Elijah Brown is providing family dental care to the Mt. Juliet Area.

“I try to treat whoever’s in the chair like my own mom.” 

Located across the street from his old middle school, Brown is happy to help the community he grew up in.  “I can’t see myself going anywhere else.  I see a lot of people I know: old classmates, church members, kids I’ve coached,” Brown says.

Brown enjoys seeing patients walk out of his office with a bright smile on their face after his work is done.  “You can give them their smile back,” Brown says.  When a patient comes in upset about a sore tooth or other ailments, Brown does whatever is in the patient’s best interests.  “If you take care of people first, the business side will take care of itself,” Brown says.

While he wouldn’t consider himself an artist, Brown believes dentistry has an artistic side to it.  “I’ve always liked drawing and painting and being a dentist is similar.  It’s detail oriented,” Brown says. 

Brown grew up in Gladeville playing sports, but he had an interest in health care as well. “I’ve always been intrigued by medicine,” Brown says.  Brown graduated from Mt. Juliet high school in 2001, then attended Tennessee Tech as a pre-med student.  While there, he talked with many professionals in medical fields before deciding to pursue dentistry.  After graduating from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in 2011, Brown returned to Mt. Juliet and worked 3.5 years under Dr. Aaron Pryor before taking over the business.

Brown sees patients of all ages with a variety of conditions.  “I start seeing them as soon as they got teeth,” Brown says.  His goal is to help dispel anxiety in younger kids by getting them used to the various tools and procedures.

Brown works Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Brown’s office is located at 1097 Weston Dr. Suite 1.  For more information or to schedule an appointment call (615)758-7745.

Smith Chiropractic now open in MJ PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Smith Chiropractic & Rehabilitation’s Dr. Matt Smith grew up an athlete, playing sports all through his childhood, then eventually playing basketball for Mt. Juliet High School. 

With all that activity comes injuries, and one in particular helped lead Smith to the chiropractic practice he recently opened in Mt. Juliet. 

He was playing intramural basketball while at Tennessee Tech, went up for a rebound, and when he came down, his back seized up completely. 

“It knocked the breath out of me,” Smith said. 

He tried everything from pain medications to massage therapists, but nothing took the edge off. His dad convinced him that he should go see a chiropractor, and within two visits, the pain that had bothered Smith for awhile was gone. 

“I was so grateful,” said Smith. “I wanted to do that for others.”

Smith had planned on becoming a dentist, but things didn’t work out as planned. He was working as a dental assistant, but contemplating taking a dental supply sales rep job that would have been very lucrative, but included a lot of travel. The dentist he was working for said that he would make a lot of money doing that, but eventually he would want to start a family and the constant travel would be hard for him. He said he had seen him work with patients, and that’s where he needs to be. That’s when Smith decided to leave the dentist field and go to the field that helped him a few years before. 

He enrolled at the Palmer School of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Fla., and just this past year graduated. There he learned about the latest technology, and spent a year in a clinic working with patients to prepare him for his own practice. 

Smith said his job is to get you better. He doesn’t want you to be a long term patient because that will mean you are still suffering with pain. His treatment is tailored for the individual, and he has top of the line equipment. He can help with general chiropractic care, electrical muscle stimulation therapy, spinal traction and decompression, rehabilitation and kinesio taping. 

Smith Chiropractic is located at 1400 N. Mt. Juliet Road. You can check them out at or give them a call at (615)758-8560.
