Dr. Chris Griffin graduated from the University of Tennessee
in 1998 with a DDS degree and began solo
practice in Mississippi in 1999. By 2003, he received
a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry at
the age of 29, and became the youngest person from Mississippi ever
to receive the FAGD award at that time. During this pursuit, Dr. Griffin
acquired many different general dental skills, including sedation and
orthodontics, and brought them to his hometown community of Ripley.
In 2008 Dr. Griffin founded the Capacity Academy to help other dentists
learn the most efficient ways to perform dental procedures, focusing
on general dentistry. Dentists from all over the United States and
Canada have traveled to Ripley to observe and learn his techniques
and improve their own patient delivery systems. In Dr. Griffin’s opinion,
greater efficiency allows the general dentist to produce more dentistry
and take more time off. One of his greatest joys in life is spending time
with his wife and three children, and he wants all dentists to have the
freedom to spend as much time as possible with their families.
Dr. Griffin’s many extracurricular activities include the charity, Dentistry
With a Heart, coaching and sponsoring multiple little league sports, and
serving as an officer in the Mississippi Academy of General Dentistry. In
2010, Dr. Griffin was honored with the Humanitarian of the Year Award
by his peers at the Mississippi Dental Association for his community
and charitable efforts.
