Dr. Chad Edwards
As a child, Dr. Chad Edwards faced a common phobia for both the young and old alike; visiting the dentist. Now, as a dentist with his own practice, Parkway Commons Family Dentistry in Franklin, he understands that calming his own patients' fears starts with the very first phone call. From the initial point of contact - when a patient schedules an appointment - Dr. Edwards and his team create a sense of warmth and hospitality, helping ease patients' fears.

In addition to his philosophy of compassionate care, Dr. Edwards chooses to be proactive rather than take a "wait and see approach." He believes, "We only watch things get worse. If we're proactive we can place a smaller restoration. Then it's easier on the patient, usually more cost effective and it gives the patient a restoration that's going to last longer." And, with state-of-the-art laser technology, like the Powerlase AT, Dr. Edwards and his team are able perform many procedures without needles. As the father of two small children, he understands that this is especially welcome news for his younger patients who fear needles.

A firm believer in education, he also uses technology - in the form of an intra-oral camera - as a tool to promote communication and learning for his patients. For tooth restorations, Dr. Edwards has invested in a CEREC machine that allows restorations to be performed in a single sitting. "The technology is absolutely amazing! In many cases, patients don't have to wear a temporary restoration," says Dr. Edwards, "they can leave with the restoration in one appointment."

Because of the relaxed, family atmosphere at Parkway Commons Family Dentistry, Dr. Edwards makes it a point to provide a comprehensive range of dental services in his office, so patients can have procedures performed in house as often as possible. He offers orthodontics and endodontics (root canal therapy), as well as restorative dentistry and a full line of cosmetic services. "Veneers are not the only way to transform a smile," he says. "Our laser therapy allows us to take our cosmetic services in another direction from veneers many times."

A caring doctor, with a firm belief in communication and education, Dr. Edwards says what he loves best about his job is calming his patients' fears to the point where "going to the dentist becomes just like anything else they do during the day." Having once been that scared patient himself, Dr. Edwards is a living testament to his own philosophy that a relaxed atmosphere and compassionate care can soothe patient fears while creating beautiful, healthy smiles.
