About Us

Welcome to our dental clinic: dentist in Columbus, GA

Family Dentistry of Columbus was started by Dr. Marlon Murrell, DMD. He founded Family Dentistry upon the goal of providing great dentistry in as comfortable dental environment as possible to patients age 3 and up. As time went on, his dental business grew and he was able to expand those same great efforts to even more patients, eventually needing more dentists who shared his same ideals.

Today, Drs. Parker & Polk, along with their staff, work to meet your dental needs as gently as possible. We continue to work hard to stick to our founding principles every single day, with every patient … no matter what their needs might be. The staff at Family Dentistry of Columbus are experienced and willing to meet your personalized needs.

We work under those same founding points of providing great dental care and always, always putting our patients first. With our values in place, we strive to provide you with the best dental care possible. We are proud to serve the communities of Columbus, GA, Fort Benning, and Phenix City Village in Alabama.

At Family Dentistry of Columbus, we aim to make your experience with us optimum and hope that you feel a sense of trust and relief in our dental practices.
