My husband and I recently moved from Savannah and were referred to Dr. Pumphrey by our periodontist down there. What an enlightening, comforting, and state of the art periodontal experience we have had every time we go to his office! We never knew how backwards and outdated our care in Savannah was until moving to Atlanta and seeing Dr. Pumphrey. His staff are all so fabulous and Dr. Pumphrey is not only the epitome of professionalism but also an incredibly nice, genuine, and caring person!
