Dr. Kenneth A. Murphy – Your Atlanta Dentist

Dr. Kenneth A. MurphyDr. Murphy graduated from Emory College, and then received his dental degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Once he finished dental school, he entered a post-graduate general practice residency at the Emory University School of Post-Graduate Dentistry, where he learned to treat a variety of complex cases, both in a hospital setting for  patients with medical complications and a traditional private office.

Ever since the sixth grade, Dr. Murphy knew he wanted to be a dentist. That was when he did a term paper on careers, and after researching dentistry and later visiting the dental school at Emory, he decided the field of dentistry was for him. Dr. Murphy opened his practice in Atlanta in 1991, and in the year 2000, he moved to a larger facility in the Medical Quarters Building to better serve his patients.

He is a firm believer in continuing his education and is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Georgia Dental Association, and the Northern District Dental Society. Dr. Murphy has been collecting dental figurines for over 20 years. It is an impressive collection of about 200 pieces! Most are displayed in our reception area and conference room for our patients to enjoy. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Murphy is an avid dog lover. He has four Boston Terriers, Koby , Piper, Phoebe and Little Boo. He reads about a book a week and is addicted to his iPad.
