Chris Griffin, DDS
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.
