Linda King, DDS, MAGD
Dr. King graduated from the Medical College of Virginia’s School of Dentistry in Richmond in 1994. She started in private practice dentistry and has become a perpetual student. She began practicing in Griffin, Georgia, and she started her own practice in Locust Grove in 1997. Dr. King achieved the prestigious status of Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry in July 2006. Only 1% of practicing dentists have achieved this award. It involved achieving more than 1,100 hours of continuous education in all aspects of dentistry. Dr. King is one of the youngest women ever to have achieved this award.
Her commitment to her education involved completing six levels of training at the Pankey Institute of Advanced Dental Technology, as well as several levels of training at the Seattle Institute for Advanced Dental Technology and the Dawson Center, and continuums at LSU School of Dentistry’s Aesthetic Continuum. She attends hundreds of hours of continuing education per year in order to ensure that her patients get the most up-to-date care possible.
Dr. King believes that the more she can learn about all aspects of dentistry, the more choices she can offer her patients to help them keep their teeth.
She is a member of the American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Academy of General Dentistry, Hinman Dental Society, and the Henry and Butts County Chamber of Commerce. Dr. King is also a member of Locust Grove’s revitalization of the downtown district in their Downtown Development Authority, on current appointment.
