About the Practice
Time is our most valuable resource and one we share freely with patients because it lays the foundation for excellence in dentistry.
Time allows us to hear our patients’ stories and understand your needs so we can solve today’s problems and avoid tomorrow’s.
Learn how Chattanooga Family Dentistry pairs expertise with a forward-looking view of your oral health to provide lasting results.
Dental Care Starts With the Patient We Begin by Getting to Know You
While his dental credentials speak to his skills as a dentist, Dr. Lunn takes his guidance from patients themselves.
"We begin by taking the time to get to know you and what you want and expect from dentistry and us," said Dr. Lunn. "We have found that working together in your best interest is more predictable, more fun, and produces lasting results."
"Many problems, disappointments, headaches, and conflicts can be avoided if we plan together. Plans and goals begin by knowing what patients want and expect from dentistry, so we always begin with the end in mind."
“I have noted that fewer than 1% of new patients coming into my practice have set goals and outlined plans with their former dentists,” Dr. Lunn notes. “Most don’t even know much about the causes of dental disease, let alone much about their existing dental condition. For us, we begin here.”
Our Philosophy in Action
Take a Guided Tour of Your Mouth
Together we will do an examination of your oral structures, face, and teeth.
“I emphasize ‘we’ in this, as I will guide you on an examination tour,” said Dr. Lunn.
“There will be no secrets. No taking X-rays and not sharing with you what we see. I believe the more you know about where you are and what you want, the better choices you can make.”
We Encourage Thoughtful Choices
Patients of our Chattanooga office are invited to explore their dental options and learn about the pros and cons of each while also learning about the consequences if no action is taken.
“Some treatment options are better than others. You deserve to know the options and consequences of treatment and non-treatment so you can make good choices for you and your loved ones.”
“I believe this is one of the areas I help my patients the most. This is where knowledge (through study) and experience combine to form ‘treatment wisdom,’” said Dr. Lunn.

Planning Is Central to Our Method
At Chattanooga Family Dentistry, we don’t try to “save time” by rushing through diagnosis and treatment planning. We create the time to adequately "plan before we begin" so we don’t waste your time or money.
- Diagnosis asks the questions: What is going on and why? What are the causes of any problems that might be present?
- Treatment planning allows us to determine the best plan to solve, correct, or prevent the problem.
No two patients are exactly alike, and no two treatment plans are exactly alike. In every aspect of life, things go better with a plan. No one would build a house or a business without a plan. No one should begin any important dentistry without a plan.
Treatment Plans Made Just for You
Our Bio-Esthetic Approach to Dentistry Blends Form, Function, & Beauty
Chattanooga Family Dentistry's Dr. Lunn pairs the function of restorative dentistry with the beauty of cosmetic dentistry to give patients smiles for a lifetime.
Bioesthetic dentistry combines form, function, and esthetics for a comprehensive solution to dental problems. The bioesthetic dentist is concerned about how teeth function but equally concerned about preserving facial youth and beauty, a combined approach that requires meticulous attention to detail.
You’ve probably heard the term "measure twice — cut once." At Chattanooga Family Dentistry, we measure three times before we treat. This attention to detail ensures we’ve properly planned your treatment before we begin.
“I have found that most mistakes in dentistry are caused by someone being in too much of a hurry to treat before adequate planning is completed," said Dr. Lunn. "By taking time at the start, we save time, pain, and expense down the road. It works better this way.”
Our Philosophy on Form & Function Extends to Our Facility
Our ergonomic, state-of-the-art office is designed with you in mind.
From our noise-reducing headphones to the flat-screen monitors in every treatment room, we take your comfort seriously. We even engage your senses with aromatherapy scented candles and warm blankets to make your visit as relaxing as possible.
We also offer:
- Sedation dentistry to keep you relaxed during treatment
- DVDs so you can bring your favorite movie
- Handicap accessibility

- And complimentary snuggles from Winston, our office dog

Had a fear and many bad experiences with Dentist in the past.... Needed a toothe extraction and went to Dr Lunn. They were calm, patient, walked me through everything and made me feel comfortable and safe. Even Dr. Lunn called me this evening himself to check on me.

I had such a wonderful experience today and I’m happy to call Chattanooga Family Dentistry my new dentist. They had great protocols in place for The covid situation and they did such a thorough job on checking me out and cleaning my teeth. I had both of the Beckys assist in my appointment today and they were both so kind and personable. It felt like I was part of a family! I look forward to my next appointment.View On Google
