Katherine Pope Franklin HygienistI come from a dental family and have been in dental hygiene 40 years. I grew up in Murfreesboro, TN and obtained my dental hygiene degree at TSU/Meharry Dental College and UT Memphis. I especially enjoy learning and continuing my dental hygiene education, always exceeding the required number of hours. My parents instilled in me “gentle, yet thorough”, so I am proud to be part of the team where high standards, a caring atmosphere, and concern for patients’ comfort are stressed. Caring for individuals with dental anxiety and helping patients improve their oral health is extremely rewarding.

Living in Berry Farms for several years and making new friends has been a lot of fun. I love spending time with my family and two dogs, painting, music, travel and UT football.
