it might be hard to find surf-able waves in landlocked nashville, tennessee, but that never stopped steven cram and dr. rob smith of ‘smith dental’ from passionately pursuing all things water-bound. dentists by trade, the ocean loving team hired seattle based MG2 to infuse their office with a beachside vibe.

the ‘trestles’ room is named after a grouping of surf spots at san onofre state beach in san diego county, CA




the unique experience features one-off art pieces, colorful treatment rooms — each tied to a famous surf location — and various accents reflective of west coast surf and skate culture. reclaimed wood panelling, bold striped carpet, and mismatched décor create an environment that’s modern, novel, and might just make the next trip to the dentist a bit more enjoyable.
