Katherine Pope Franklin HygienistI come from a dental family and have been in dental hygiene 38 years. I grew up in Murfreesboro, TN and studied 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 patient’s comfort are stressed. I really enjoy caring for individuals with dental anxiety, as I completely understand their fears. Helping patients improve their oral health is extremely rewarding.

I have enjoyed living in Berry Farms for several years and watching the area grow. I am enjoying meeting new people and making new friends, as well as having nieces and my new great-nephew in the neighborhood. I have 2 sweet dogs, Elie Mae and Crockett. I love spending time with my family, gardening, art, travel, UT football, live music, and most recently working out at The Barre.
