Dr. Murphree has studied cosmetic dentistry extensively over many years, and is a graduate of the prestigious Pacific Aesthetic Continuum in San Diego, a well-known institution that teaches cosmetic dentistry to practicing dentists. He has passed the written examinations toward accreditation with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, making him a Sustaining Member of that Academy. But his expertise and artistry are best demonstrated by the beauty of his work, which we have seen. In fact, Dr. Murphree won a medal for his work at the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry 2003 Smile Gallery competition, and two Gold and two Bronze medals at the 2005 Smile Gallery competition. The medals are pictured below.
