Meet Your Highland Village Dentist
Dr. Autumn Griffin
Dr. Autumn Joy Griffin was raised in New Hampshire, but now calls Texas her home. After obtaining her undergraduate degree from Smith College, she spent two years performing biomedical research in Bethesda Maryland at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Subsequently, she earned her dental degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. While in dental school she accepted a clerkship in oral and maxillofacial surgery and received additional education in the areas of complex exodontia and implant dentistry.
Following dental school, Dr. Griffin continued her education at Yale Medical School/Yale-New Haven Hospital where she was a resident in the General Practice Residency Program. This program provided advanced clinical and didactic training in various aspects of dentistry, with an emphasis on the management of medically compromised patients. She is certified in advanced cardiac life support and conscious sedation.
Dr. Griffin strives to deliver the best possible care to her patients by staying abreast of the latest advances and technologies in the field of dentistry by regularly attending continuing education courses, including classes on cosmetic and laser dentistry, implant rehabilitation, and Invisalign. Her work has been published in Dentistry Today. She is a member of the American Dental Association, American Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Texas State Dental Association, and the Dallas Study Club.
Additionally, Dr. Griffin is committed to giving back to the community by volunteering her time and services to those who would otherwise not receive care through programs such as RAM (Remote Area Medical) and Donated Dental Services.
When Dr. Griffin is not practicing dentistry, she enjoys spending time with her husband Christopher, a practicing oral surgeon in Dallas, playing soccer, and exploring the beautiful state of Texas. She is looking forward to joining The Highland Village Family Dentistry team and meeting its wonderful patients!
