Meet The Team

It takes a team of professionals with a variety of skills to provide the care you deserve. Currently, we are three hygienists, two assistants, and three patient coordinators; all trained to assist each other in a “day at the office”.

Each participates in continuing education throughout the year to improve technical skills as well as customer service. Working together, our team makes East Side Smiles a home for comprehensive dental care. From the moment you walk in and throughout your care, you will see familiar faces at every turn. Say Cheese!

Chelsea Belcher

Registered Dental Hygienist

Chelsea was born and raised in Nashville, TN. She completed her Dental Hygiene degree in 2013 at Tennessee State University. Chelsea truly loves her work in dentistry and has a heart for every patient that she treats. She especially feels accomplished when she can make people with previous negative memories of dentistry relaxed and happy to be receiving care.

When Chelsea isn’t treating and educating patients, you can bet she’ll be on the East side enjoying a fun yoga class, or at home studying the art of herbalism.

John Llewellyn

Office Manager

John joined our team in 2017 and brought 17 years of dental knowledge with him. He has found his niche in dental insurance and leadership He relocated to Clarksville in 2015 from sunny South Florida where he grew up. He attended University in Miami majoring in culinary arts and discovered soon after that the “business end” of dental held more appeal than kitchen work and bartending.

When he’s not in the office he can be found at home working on some home “beautification project” or traveling back to Florida or the Caribbean to visit family and friends.

Morgan Pugh

Patient Coordinator

Morgan is originally from Tuscaloosa, AL. She started her dental career in 2014 as a dental assistant. She moved to Nashville in 2016 to be an assistant for an endodontist and got her RDA license at The Tennessee Dental Staff School. In 2017 she chipped her front tooth which brought her to East Side Smiles.

Dr. Hadley and the team were so friendly she applied for a job which is when she started her administration job. When she isn’t answering your questions at the office she is also a commissioned abstract artist and dog owner to my fur baby Joose.

Look for her art at our office!
