Dr. Rimer has lived and practiced in Rutherford County for over 25 years. He graduated from the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga; where he earned his BA in chemistry and his Doctorate of Dental Science from University of Tennessee, Memphis. As a general dentist, Dr. Rimer treats patients of all ages. He strives to treat each patient as an individual, not a number. HIs patients describe him as gentle, compassionate, caring, and very down to earth. The type of "hometown" dentist that is hard to find.
With a large blended family of seven children, and an equally large menagerie of pets, home life with his wife J'aime is never dull. When he can find a spare moment away from dentistry, Dr. Rimer enjoys fishing as well as riding motorcycles and tinkering with electronics.
Kimberly Hargrove is our office manager at Signature Smiles. She graduated from Daymar Institute in Murfreesboro with her dental assisting degree. She found a new aspect that she loved in the dental field and that is all the fundamentals of the front. She is very passionate about this practice and the patients that come in. She and her husband are expecting a baby in May 2014. They live in Columbia, TN with their dog, Grayson Willow.
Anna Claire is our registered dental hygienist. She graduated with her degree in dental hygiene from Tennessee State University in 2011. She is certified in local anesthesia, nitrous-oxide administering, and diode laser applications. She has worked with Dr. Rimer previously and is happy to work alongside him again at Signature Smiles! She and her husband DJ live just outside of Nashville with their two dogs, Charlotte and Sylvan. When not working you can find them outside doing just about anything from canoeing to camping to rock climbing!
Anna Claire is very passionate about her patients. Her top priority is making sure each patient is as comfortable as possible while in her and Dr. Rimer's care. She is particularly compassionate for those who have anxiety about dental treatment, as she herself has had a bad experience in the dental chair. Her goal is to see each patient as a person, and strives to treat each person as she would want to be treated.
