Our History

Founded in 2001, Dave and Debbie Haxton started Dentsmart primarily to provide paintless dent repair (PDR) service to repair “hail damage”. Though they live in Murfreesboro TN, Dentsmart was founded in Peoria, Illinois, due to the proximity of so many corporate Insurance companies. As a paintless dent repair technician, Dave knew there had to be a way for PDR technicians to come together to provide security in an ever changing industry while meeting the needs of the insurance companies.
In 2003, when Murfreesboro had a major hail event, Debbie left her career in the printing industry to work full-time with Dave to build and grow the Dentsmart brand. They later partnered with Ron Whitton to form what is now Dentsmart, Inc. 14 Franchise Owners, 18 states and 125+ technicians later, they decided to lay some local roots here in the ‘boro.
After 3 major hail events in 10 years, they believed there was a need to provide a location where customers could also bring their vehicles to clean up unsightly dents and dings with the same quality, standards and warranties that are expected with any insurance repair. After searching for the right location, they have found a home at 2722 Lascassas Pike in Murfreesboro.

“Over the past 17 years, we have raised our two wonderful children and welcomed our 2nd grandchild. Our family has watched us build Dentsmart from a dream to what it is today. We are proud to have our daughter Krysta as the smiling face you see when you walk in (along with our granddaughter, Ms. Maggie) and our nephew William as one of the many talented technicians waiting to restore your vehicle. We hope that you will also become part of the Dentsmart family by entrusting the repair of your vehicle to us.”
