Welcome To Our Convenient Crossville Office

You’d be amazed at how wonderful it feels to have teeth you love showing off. Although your oral health is always our top priority, we understand how important it is to have a smile you feel good about. Your cosmetic dentist would love to meet with you to discuss the changes you’d like to see.

Northside Family Dentistry with Dr. Johnny Shanks & Dr. Darrel Clabough, is a comprehensive and advanced dental practice in Crossville, Tennessee. Dr. Shanks & Dr. Clabough stay at the forefront of dental technology to provide their patients the best possible care. Both dentists specialize in complete family dentistry, including cosmetic, restorative and preventative dentistry. At Northside Family Dentistry, we treat you like family and take the time to listen to your dental health goals. We are committed to providing a personalized dental experience at our world-class facility.

Repair Your Smile With Implants 

As a patient of Northside Family Dentistry, you can be confident that your dental implants will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. As a matter of fact, many of our patients tell us that their friends and family can’t tell the difference between their natural teeth and their dental implants. Implants are a durable long-term alternative to traditional bridges, dentures, or partials. They provide exceptional support for crowns, bridges, and dentures, and they’re the preferred method of securing these types of prostheses for restorative dentistry.

 Same-Day Crowns

Dr. Johnny Shanks uses iTero® enhanced intraoral scanner designed to integrate with the Invisalign® clear orthodontic aligners system to provide the most detailed visualization of your mouth. iTero® also allows Dr. Shanks to predict outcomes after Invisalign® treatment with the Outcome Simulator software. This software will give you a before-after treatment simulation so you can see what the treatment will look like once complete.

Cosmetic Dentistry

At Northside Family Dentistry, we take our time with every single patient and strive to achieve nothing short of perfection with each and every one. Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile will increase self-confidence and overall life satisfaction. We offer procedures that include things like veneers, tooth-colored restorations, bonding, dental implants, and crowns.

 Restorative Dentistry

For patients who have damaged, severely worn, or missing teeth and want to improve the esthetics of their smile as well as regain the full function of their mouth, expert full mouth reconstruction dentist, Dr. Johnny Shanks can provide the comprehensive solution that encompasses all of your oral reconstruction needs from complex to the simple cases. If you need single tooth replacement with dental implants, full-arch replacement with implant dentures, or something in between, request an appointment.

    It was a long process but we have reached the end and it was all worth it.
    Dr Shanks did everything he said and the outcome was GREAT and he has the best connection with his patients and he truly cares. Thank you so much Northside Dentistry and Staff !

  • Jerry Hodge

    Dr. Shanks has been my dentist for several years. Having had trouble finding quality dental care in the past as I moved around the country, I was and am overjoyed to have found the practice of Northside Family Dentistry. In a very short time, I was deeply impressed with the talents and techniques of Dr. Shanks. He stays right at the cutting edge of new equipment and treatments.
    Today was no surprise as he quickly evaluated my needs from a damaged molar crown, offered a solution, and then upon my approval, he, assisted by three very competant employees, completed putting that solution into action and satisfactory completion. Thank you to each person involved and to Dr. Shanks.
