Nashville Dental has been family-owned and operated from day one of its long history. Founded in 1897 in Nashville, Tennessee, Morrison Brothers Dental Supply Company incorporated in 1905 and changed its name to Nashville Dental, Inc. Vernon L Brown joined the company in 1929 and began managing in the 30’s. He purchased the company outright in 1974. Mike Brown (center) became President of the company in 1981 and serves in that role today. Todd Brown (right of Mike) serves as Vice President, and Kirk Brown (left of Mike) serves as VP of Sales & Marketing.

The company is currently in its third generation of management by the same family. Our team has a history of leadership in the industry, including two generations sitting on the board of the (ADTA/DTA) and holding the chair of the American Dental Trade Association (counterpart to the ADA). Nashville Dental, Inc. was actively involved in creating ADC (the American Dental Cooperative) and a charter member. ADC is a leading organization of full service independent dental distributors across the US which transitioned to NDC in recent years. The only locally owned supplier in the region, NDI now brings comprehensive product choice to Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, north Georgia, north Mississippi, West Virginia, southwest Virginia and southern Indiana.
