Dr. Andrew Currie, DMD, MS, DICOI
Dr. Andrew Currie is an Atlanta native who is excited to be a part of Atlanta Dental Spa’s Buckhead location. He attended the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) and graduated with degrees in Biology and Spanish. After his stint in Athens, Dr. Currie simultaneously earned his Doctorate in Dental Medicine and Masters of Science in Oral Biology at the University of Louisville. For his Master’s research, Dr. Currie won a handful of awards and was invited to present at two national dental meetings. Following dental school, Dr. Currie completed a two-year General Practice Residency at the Medical College of Georgia (now Georgia Regents University School of Dentistry.) This residency provided Dr. Currie with extensive training in surgical and implant dentistry, I.V. sedation, and the management of medically complex patients. Dr. Currie served as the program’s Chief Resident during his second year, where he not only stoked his passion for implant placement, but discovered a passion for teaching dentistry as well. He returns at least once a month to the General Practice Residency as a part-time faculty member as a way to give back and stay in touch with the newest advancements in the field. Due to the substantial amount of implant patients Dr. Currie treated during his residency, he became one of the youngest recipients of a Fellowship in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists in 2011. Additionally, in 2015 he continued his path in Implantology and obtained his Diplomate in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists - their highest award in this field. Recently Dr. Currie has spent much of his free time working to incorporate the newest technology into Atlanta Dental Spa's daily routine. Don't be surprised if you see him reviewing 3-D Cone Beam x-rays, taking digital impressions, or 3-D printing a surgical guide for an upcoming implant case. Dr. Currie is also an active member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the Georgia Dental Association. Dr. Currie enjoys volunteering on dental mission trips and participating in the Georgia Mission of Mercy as both a dentist and a Spanish language translator. Dr. Currie lives in Brookhaven with his wife Alison, who is a local attorney. In his free time he loves to travel, attend concerts and sporting events, cook, and spend time with friends and family.
