BRIAN DEVINE, DDS
After graduating from the University of Memphis and the University of Tennessee Dental School, I could not wait to get back to Nashville. I opened my doors in July of 1988. It seems like yesterday! With my wife, Conde, working as a newly graduated mechanical engineer, supporting us through the early years, she enabled me to slowly start building this dental practice. With the help over the years of many team members, super patients referring us patients, professional mentors, colleagues, and dental industry professionals, I have been fortunate, from the beginning, to create a vibrant, caring, successful practice.
Our practice today continues to grow and develop with new technology and technical training. We, however, never forget what got us here: delivering quality dental care and developing strong relationships with our patients in a happy, caring environment.
RUSSELL MACK, DDS
I am a native of Nashville, and after ten years of being away from home, I am so happy to be back!
While away, I received my bachelor’s degree in Biology, with a minor in Spanish for the Health Professions, from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (UNC) in 2011. After which I went on to pursue my Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree where I graduated from UNC with honors. My bilingual ability allows me to reach even more patients in our Nashville office.
I am passionate about giving back to the community by helping underprivileged patients of all ages receive necessary dental care. I have spent some time in leadership roles in various outreach services to provide preventive and restorative treatment to low-income families, including pediatric patients.
I am adventurous during my free time. I love traveling, snow skiing, water skiing, and meeting new people. Now that I am back home, I look forward to spending more time with my family and friends. I am excited to join Devine Dentistry, get involved in the community, and serve all the folks who make Nashville such a wonderful city.
