Philip Bates, DMD



As my patient, you can expect to receive the highest-quality dental care in a comfortable, gentle manner. I strive to treat all my patients with the utmost respect and will treat you like family.


Some of my favorite things include Remember the Titans, The Office, vacationing in Charleston, the Kentucky Wildcats, the Atlanta Braves, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Miami Heat. I love pizza, particularly Pizza Palace in East Knoxville.
