Dr. Murfree

Murfreesboro Dentist John MurfreeA native to Middle Tennessee, Dr. Murfree was born & grew up in Murfreesboro.  After pursuing a degree in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Dr. Murfree and his twin brother decided to use their love of science and enter dental school at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.  Dr. Murfree came back to his hometown to open up shop following dental school.  With his family roots extending for generations in Murfreesboro, it only felt right to bring his services home and care for the people of his community.

Dr. Murfree’s passion for knowledge and his profession is shown through his completion of 5 times the required continuing education hours during the 10 years since opening his practice.    State-of-the-art techniques, technology & equipment are used to achieve the best possible outcome while also focusing on patient comfort.

Dr. Murfree was born and raised right here in Murfreesboro. He has one dog and two cats he pals around with while relaxing at home. His hobbies are dentistry (of course  ?), camping, spelunking, fishing, reading, and spending time with his family.
His guilty pleasure? ICE CREAM  ? ? ?
