Dr. Kimberly Pitts
Dentist & Practice Owner
As a native of Murfreesboro, Dr. Kimberly Pitts is delighted to provide dental care to other natives and newcomers alike. She grew up with the greatest dentist in the city, her father, Dr. Robert L. Dryden, and her loving mother, Linda Dryden.
Dr. Kimberly Pitts is an alumnus of Dawson Academy and a member of the Spear Faculty Club. She attended Middle Tennessee State University, graduating with a B.S. before enrolling in The University of Tennessee, College of Dentistry. In 1997, she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and began her private practice with her father. That same year, she married Joseph Kennon Pitts, the Business Administrator in the office. In 2002, Dr. Kimberly Pitts purchased the practice and continued to work with her father for a combined 17 years until his retirement in 2014. Her father placed close attention to having the latest technology to provide the best level of care to patients. Our practice continues to follow his lead. She has received her Masters in the Academy of General Dentistry, which less than 2% of dentists receive! Dr. Pitts is the only dentist in the state of Tennesse who has trained at the OBI Foundation for Bioesthetic Dentistry.
Her church family is very important to her, and without the constant intercession of her Lord Jesus Christ, she could not accomplish anything. She and Joe are members of Believer’s Chapel Church, which she has attended since 1978. She and Joe also participate in outdoor activities like golf, water skiing, boating, fishing, snow skiing, and more. No children but the sweetest dog (Shih Tzu) in the world. She loves to learn all she can about being a better dentist. Her practice has been recognized in Nashville’s top 10 dentist list!
