Griffin Family Dentistry


Dentist Florence, ALDr. Ry Griffin

    Florence has, and always will be, home to me.I grew up in the Florence City School system,  graduating from Bradshaw High School in 2000. I then became a Lion, attending the University of North Alabama, where I received my B.S. in professional biology and graduated magna cum laude with Honors in English in 2004. I received my D.M.D. from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry in 2008 and then returned home to Florence to practice and give back to a community that is itself generous and encouraging.

    Professionally, I am a member of the Tri-County Dental Association, serving as President in 2010; the 8th District Dental Society, Alabama Dental Association, the American Dental Association and NFIB.

    Locally, I am a member of the Florence Rotary Club, Shoals Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Florence Unlimited and the Florence High School Quarterback Club. My hobbies include reading and politics. I am an avid runner and love to support our local races.

   In 2008 I married Daisy Gingrich, of Vinemont, AL, who also graduated from U.N.A. She is employed by ECM (soon to be North Alabama Medical Center) as a pharmacist, receiving her doctorate from Samford in 2008.
