Kimbrough DentalWe're happy to meet you!
Dr. Randal Kimbrough graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in December 1979, and started his practice in January 1980. He was an associate of Dr. Eddie Gillespie, who had purchased Dr. Oscar M. Kimbrough’s practice in 1974. Dr. Oscar had started his practice in 1951 after serving in WWII. He attended dental school at the University of Missouri Kansas City on the GI Bill, and graduated in 1951. Dr. Oscar was well respected by his patients and other dentists in the community. He was very active in the Methodist church and Kiwanis. He died an untimely death from cancer in 1974. He was 55 years old.
In 1981, after practicing with Dr. Gillespie in his dad’s old office for a year, Dr. Randy purchased the practice of Dr. Gary Cohen, and moved his practice from Meadow Street to American Street. He built his current office next door to the old one, and moved in in 1991.
Over the years Dr. Randy has been involved with the ADA, Kiwanis, coaching youth sports, running, biking, and hunting. Dr. Scott Kimbrough joined the practice in 2009 after graduating from the UT College of Dentistry with Honors. Outside of the practice he has been involved with community groups and coaching soccer and T-ball.
Dr. Randy’s wife Marsha is a retired dental hygienist. Their daughter Amy is a dental hygienist. Their youngest son Mark is a Methodist minister. He says he’s the black sheep of the family because he didn’t go into dentistry. Randy, Marsha, and all three children are graduates of the University of Arkansas. Go Hogs!
Both doctors enjoy continuing education programs, and believe in the concept of being a perpetual student. The field of dentistry is rapidly expanding and changing. Believe it or not, dentistry is a fascinating profession that can positively impact lives daily. The IDT study club that both doctors attend monthly is a constant source of cutting-edge information and collaboration. Many of the top clinicians in the U.S. and the world have lectured here in NWA, due to this study club’s notoriety. Both doctors are past presidents of the study club.

Are you fearful or uncomfortable visiting a dentist? Dental anxiety and phobia are extremely common. It has been estimated that 9% to 15% of Americans avoid seeing the dentist because of anxiety and fear. That’s about 30 million to 40 million people. Unfortunately, those with dental anxiety or phobia are more likely to have gum disease and early tooth loss, as well as emotional insecurities about the appearance and health of their teeth.
At Kimbrough Dental Care, we strive to make your care as comfortable as possible for you, and help patients to overcome their fears about procedures. There are a number of ways that we can help make your visit more as comfortable and relaxing as possible:
- We provide Overhead TVs in each patient room, with local cable channels, a DVD player, and Bluetooth headphones. You can even bring a favorite DVD from home if you like.
- The chairs in our treatment rooms have memory foam and lumbar support for your comfort. We can also adjust the incline of the chair during procedures to a level that is most comfortable to you.
- We provide all digital x-rays, greatly reducing radiation exposure, compared to film x-rays. Most of your x-rays can be taken without placing anything in your mouth.
- Our patient chairs face floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking landscaping and bird feeders, which helps to alleviate any “closed-in” feeling you may have experienced in other dental offices.
- Nitrous-Oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation are both available if you need them.
- We take time to listen to our patients’ concerns, and will pause any time that you feel uncomfortable during a procedure. We want to alleviate any fears you may have.
Don’t let your fear and anxiety keep you from the treatment and care that you need for optimum dental health. You are not alone, and we are here to help!
Advanced Dental Technology
Drs. Randy and Scott Kimbrough choose carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Drs. Randy And Scott Kimbrough utilize Digital Imaging Technology within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
We are very proud to announce that we recently added the ability to take CBCT scans in the office. This means we can get a 3 dimensional image that aides in the diagnosis of problems not seen on traditional x-rays, planning dental implant placement, or even accessing a tooth for a root canal.
Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.
Drs. Kimbrough and Kimbrough utilize intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
