Dr. Randal Kimbrough graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in December 1979, and started his practice in January 1980. He was an associate of Dr. Eddie Gillespie, who had purchased Dr. Oscar M. Kimbroughs practice in 1974. Dr. Oscar had started his practice in 1951 after serving in WWII. He attended dental school at the University of Missouri Kansas City on the GI Bill, and graduated in 1951. Dr. Oscar was well respected by his patients and other dentists in the community. He was very active in the Methodist church and Kiwanis. He died an untimely death from cancer in 1974. He was 55 years old.
In 1981, after practicing with Dr. Gillespie in his dads old office for a year, Dr. Randy purchased the practice of Dr. Gary Cohen, and moved his practice from Meadow Street to American Street. He built his current office next door to the old one, and moved in in 1991.
Over the years Dr. Randy has been involved with the ADA, Kiwanis, coaching youth sports, running, biking, and hunting. Dr. Scott Kimbrough joined the practice in 2009 after graduating from the UT College of Dentistry with Honors. Outside of the practice he has been involved with community groups and coaching soccer and T-ball.
