Our Founder


Dr. George Adams, Sr. began practicing pediatric dentistry in Nashville, TN in 1977 after completing his residency at Indiana University School of Dentistry. From the first day that he opened his doors, Dr. Adams, Sr. was committed to treating each patient like his own children.

Through his years in practice, Dr. Adams, Sr. remained actively engaged in continually learning modern dental techniques and how to more safely treat each patient. Through his 39 years in practice, Dr. Adams, Sr. was instrumental in writing the sedation guidelines in the state of TN, served as a pediatric consultant to the Tennessee Board of Dentistry and the Tennessee Dental Association Sedation Committee, and spent countless hours working on committees to protect the access to dental care for children.

Dr. George Adams, Jr.

In 2001, Dr. George Adams, Jr. completed his pediatric dental residency as the Chief Resident at the University of Kentucky, and joined his father in the family business. Combining his many years of helping around the pediatric dental office in his youth, with the technical skills acquired from his advanced schooling, Dr. Adams, Jr. partnered with his father to promote dental hygiene to the children of Nashville, TN.

The father & son team spent 15 years practicing pediatric dentistry side by side. As of May 5, 2016 Dr. George Adams, Sr. retired from practicing dentistry, but remains involved in the community as a consultant and instructor for Interfaith Dental Clinic.

Dr. Ryan Seaton


To help fill the void of Dr. Adams, Sr.’s retirement, Dr. Ryan Seaton was the natural fit for the practice. Having been inspired by Dr. Adams, Sr. to enter pediatric dentistry, and wanting to raise his family in Nashville, Dr. Seaton happily accepted a position within the Adams & Seaton Pediatric Dentistry team.

In 2013, Dr. James Ryan Seaton completed his pediatric dental residency at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, TX. Wanting to raise his beautiful family in Nashville, he joined the practice in 2016. Sharing the same values and dedication as Dr. Adams Jr, Dr. Seaton  made the effortless transition to partner. Since 2016, Adams & Seaton Pediatric Dentistry has strived to maintain the principles that have made the practice a trustworthy name for over 43 years.

Treating Every Child Like Their Own

Dr. Adams, Jr and Dr. Seaton look forward to treating every child like their own for years to come. Every time they evaluate a patient, they keep one question in mind, “What would I do for my own child?”

This simple question drives their conservative and effective treatment of each child, and allows them to treat every patient and parent, the way we would want to be treated. They also like to have a lot of fun, so your child is sure to enjoy the gentle and friendly environment.
