Dr. Kirkpatrick is a lifetime resident of Chattanooga and a graduate from Red Bank High School. He attended the University of Tennessee-College of Dentistry in Memphis and has been practicing dentistry for over 40 years.
Dr. Kirkpatrick currently has memberships with:
American Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association, Chattanooga Area Dental Society, and the Better Business Bureau.
His favorite hobby is his 1994 Pontiac TransAm which his staff and family refer to as "The Beast". It has been detailed from top to bottom and she is beautiful! From questions about intake manifolds to dentistry he will be glad to try and answer your questions. Dr. Kirkpatrick is a car enthusiast but also loves to learn new treatments in dentistry. He engages in car shows both near and far, TV shows, forums and magazines. The time he puts in "The Beast" brings him pride and joy which is both fun and relaxing for him. So if you are also a car buff, don't hesitate to let him know.
Dr. Kirkpatrick has new blessings. 2 grandchildren. Always remember a grandparent (Pops) is a little bit teacher, a little bit best friend and a partner in crime.
Dr. Kirkpatrick has an office full of women staff members which can be a task in itself but they still have a way to always make him laugh. This laughter is also good for our patients. Since some of you have experienced fearful times at the dentist, you tend to put off those important regular visits. We will take the time needed to make you as comfortable as possible.
Skill and compassion go hand in hand when providing patient care. As your dentist, he will stay up to date on the latest advancements in dentistry in order to provide the most current treatment options. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
