Dr. Joe Mack has been in private practice in Nashville, Tennessee, since 1988, and he is delighted to be caring for a second generation of Nashvillians. His practice philosophy is summed-up by the Golden Rule.

Dr. Mack is a board certified  oral and maxillofacial surgeon.  He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of Dentists, a Diplomate of the National Board of Dental Anesthesiology, a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and a member of the Southeastern Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.  He has hospital privileges at St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee, and Williamson County Medical Center in Franklin, Tennessee.

Dr. Mack majored in mechanical engineering at The University of Michigan, College of Engineering, and he was granted early entrance into the University of Michigan School Of Dentistry, where he graduated in the top four percent of his class. After graduating, he completed a year of general dentistry practice residency and subsequently completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery training at the University of Alabama Hospital and his M.D. degree at the University of Alabama School of Medicine.  He completed a year each of oral surgery internship, general surgery internship, and oral surgery residency, serving as chief resident during his final year.

Dr. Mack  was recognized by the Tennessee Dental Association for his many years of service to the state and local dental community in 2010 when he was awarded The Tennessee Dental Association Fellowship Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Profession of Dentistry.  Joe has also served in every elected office in the Nashville Dental Society, including President, Member of the Board of Directors, the Budget and Finance committee, and the Nominating Committee. Dr. Mack has been an active member and officer of local study clubs since 1988.

A former Sunday school teacher and Cub Scout leader, Joe and his wife, Stephanie, live in Nashville, and are the parents of two grown children, Russell and Caroline. Dr. Mack is well-known for his friendly, light-hearted chair-side manner, and he is proud to call himself an honorary southerner.
