Dr. Phillips' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Phillips "Dr. Darryl Phillips is from Clinton, Tennessee, and he loves being part of the Knoxville community. Dr. Darryl was inspired to go into pediatric dentistry after spending time in a pediatric dental clinic with Dr. Ken Carruth, one of his favorite dental school professors. Dr. Carruth saw Dr. Darryl’s talent for working with children and his encouragement led Dr. Darryl to the career he loves. After graduating from the University of Tennessee, he attended The University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in Memphis. After graduation, Dr. Darryl chose to continue his education, completing an additional two-year residency program in pediatric dentistry at UT Memphis, during which he received extensive clinical, emergency, and surgical training. Shortly after finishing his training, Dr. Darryl returned to East Tennessee to establish Children’s Dentistry of Knoxville in August 2006. “My goal is to establish a great relationship with my patients, so that they can see that going to the dentist is not something to be afraid of,” Dr. Darryl shares. “I love being able to have a positive impact on the way kids feel about going to the dentist now and into adulthood.” When he is not saving the world one tooth at a time, Dr. Darryl enjoys water-skiing and wakeboarding on Norris Lake in the summer, and he doesn’t miss an opportunity to snow ski in the winter. Dr. Darryl loves traveling and spending time with his wife, Jennifer, who works with him in the practice."
