Dr. Mary Catherine Reynolds joined Southern Family Dental, a Life Dental practice, in 2021.

A Purvis, MS, native, Dr. Reynolds studied Biological Medical Science at Mississippi College where she obtained her bachelor’s degree before attending the University of Mississippi School of Dentistry – where she graduated No. 1 in her class.

Dr. Reynolds says she took an interest in dentistry because of the life-long relationships dentists create with their patients as well as the science and art that encompasses the field of dentistry, and that she was drawn to the Life Dental family because of the unwavering support and opportunity to grow.

“Life Dental provides great support and growth opportunities for young dental professionals who have recently graduated, such as continuing education courses, peer support groups, quarterly doctor meetings with case presentations, office visits from other LD dentists, and clinical training in-office with the staff by Life Dental trainers,” she said.

Dr. Reynolds is an active member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Dental Society, Phi Kappa Phi honor society, the American Dental Association, Mississippi Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Association of Endodontists, and American Association of Dental Research. She is also a recipient of the Wallace V. Mann, Jr. Award as well as the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons Dental Implant Student Award.

“I am always eager to continue learning and finding ways to better serve our patients,” Dr. Reynolds said. “I love the Continuing Education that Life Dental offers. From trips to learn about Digital Dental Labs, to CEs at our very own Summit Team meetings, Life Dental is always available to help us grow and learn as practitioners.”

Dr. Reynolds and the talented staff at Southern Family Dental take pride in providing best-in-class dental care to every patient who walks through the door and look forward to serving the Byram community for years to come.

“I love the team atmosphere we have,” Dr. Reynolds said. “Working as a unit allows us to comprehensively treat our patients with the best care possible and also allows us to get to know our patients on a personal level.”
