Our Nashville, TN Office Staff

Dr. John Munro

John Munro, DDS

Dr. Munro has been taking care of people’s oral health since 1980. These years of experience have allowed him to provide quality general and cosmetic dentistry services while connecting to his patients in a caring way. The long-standing relationships that have remained intact are one of the things Dr. Munro values most. 615 Smile Design Studio’s patients often comment on Dr. Munro’s pleasant demeanor and skill in making them feel comfortable during their dentist appointments.

For over ten years, Dr. Munro has served as an officer in the Tennessee Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and has been an active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry for over 20 years, as well as numerous other dental organizations. Picked as one of the Top Dentists in Nashville for the last five years, Dr. Munro has managed to stay at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry.

In February of 1991, he became the pioneer for take-home whitening trays and was granted a patent for the product and method. This milestone in cosmetic dentistry allowed patients to enjoy this unique service from the comfort of their own homes.

In addition to dentistry, Dr. Munro is focused on his family life with his wife Melinda and their son Keaton who are active members of Brentwood Baptist Church. Dr. Munro is an avid scuba diver and accomplished underwater photographer who has won numerous national and internet competitions. His work has been featured in numerous diving publications, including Skin Diver, Scuba Diver, DAN, Fathoms magazines, and recently a National Geographic Publication.
