Dr. David S. Pence

Dr. David Pence graduated from David Lipscomb College in 1979 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. He then attended Logan College of Chiropractic and graduated on August 28, 1982. Dr. Pence accepted an offer to begin practice in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida in a large combined Chiropractic and medical facility as Director of Diagnostics. He practiced there until until returning to Middle Tennessee in September 1984.

After consulting colleagues and mentors he decided to begin private practice in Franklin, Tennessee. The practice opened in January 1985 and has grown to its third location at 119 2nd Avenue N., just one block from town square.

Pence Chiropractic Center’s focus is on providing high quality Chiropractic, education, and wellness services to patients of all ages. Dr. Pence is one of very few doctors who take the time and go to the effort to use Applied Kinesiology in his practice. Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a valuable addition to standard diagnostic procedures. Most patients are amazed at its effectiveness.

Constant learning and continuing professional education and growth are important to Dr. Pence and reflected in this partial list of his post-graduate continuing education courses:
