Patient Testimonials


Dr. K was personable, professional and answered ALL my questions about the procedure. He was a great help in making my decision. Appointments were accurate with no wait time. Every step of the process from making appointments, to directions and aftercare exceeded expectations. AND, the work he did on my tooth went smoothly with a successful outcome

Gail Knoxville, TN

Everyone at this office is absolutely amazing!

Latisha Maryville, TN

This place was great. You will not dread your root canal anymore. Dr. Gaudry knows what he’s doing and the staff couldn’t be any nicer! I had no problems at all

LouAnne B Knoxville, TN

Dreaded the procedure, like most people - but it was a breeze. A professional staff was the first thing I noticed. No pain whatsoever; Dr. K explained everything he was doing throughout the process, which was very helpful in alleviating stress. Add to that the fact that Dr. K called me personally to see how I was doing at 8:30 pm that evening - not a staff member but the Dr. himself. Never seen that before, ever - this was a great experience

Scott C. Lenoir City, TN

Dr. Gaudry was excellent. He explained in detail (I like that) what he was doing and what to expect. Very happy with this experience.

The experience in your office was fantastic.  Everyone was helpful and pleasant.  I can say that I do not like having a root canal, but the experience there makes it much better.  I appreciate the professionalism of each and every person in the office.  Dr. Gaudry is wonderful and very courteous and professional.  His calm and quiet demeanor puts you at ease.  The flowers are a nice touch too!

Dr. Kalchthaler Excellent dental surgeon. Explained everything before and as it happened and fully discussed the options available to me. I could not have asked for anything more from a dental surgeon.

Dr. Jim C. Gatlinburg, TN

A little word of thanks....for a whole lot of nice!

Thank you for the great experience I had in your office. The words "Root Canal" were dreaded by me but after my visit in your office I have different feelings.

Thank you to a wonderful office and staff.

What makes us different?

Our office was the first endodontic practice in the Knoxville area to incorporate the use of microscopes as well as digitally captured x-ray images.  Microscopes provide an excellent view inside your tooth during treatment allowing the doctor to treat problems in a much more meticulous way.  Digital x-rays provide greatly enlarged images of the teeth and allow each image to be captured with far less radiation to you.

Most patients have places they would prefer to be other than a dental office.  Some have had bad dental experiences in the past and have significant anxiety.  We like to learn from you what special needs you have and customize our approach to your care.  Our goal is to give you technically excellent care in a way that leaves you with "spring in your step" when you leave and greater confidence in your ability to have a good dental experience in the future.  

We have online collaboration with referring dentists.  This allows us to send your dentist x-rays and details of your care in real time.  This reduces delays and miscommunications regarding your care.

We employ the latest barrier techniques and follow ADA, CDC, OSHA and TOSHA guidelines relating to infection control.  We use 2 autoclaves that are monitored by Blount Memorial Hospital to insure our instruments are being properly sterilized.

We recycle as much of our office waste as possible and have upgraded our equipment to reduce the amount of water we use.

Since 1992 each patient treated has been given a fresh flower upon completion of their visit as a symbol of our dedication to make your visit as comfortable and as pleasant as possible.

Office location

We are located on High Street, not far from the Blount County Courthouse and Ft. Craig Elementary School.  The office is surrounded with mature trees and a stand of bamboo which provide pleasant views for the picture windows in the reception and patient care rooms.  The trees also provide habitat for birds, squirrels, and a groundhog.

WE are a short drive from Knoxville, Lenoir City, and Sevierville.
Services to those in need

Over the years the staff and doctors of Foothills Endodontics have participated in serving those with unmet dental needs by participation with Remote Area Medical, Good Samaritan Clinic, Blount Smiles, Trinity Dental Clinic and Donated Dental Services.

Holiday Donations

Giving back to local charities has become a tradition to the staff here at Foothills Endodontics. Every year our office chooses a local angel tree or local organization to purchase toys and needed items for. We each take pride in hand picking these gifts/needed items. We look forward to our next opportunity to GIVE a little piece of happiness.
