Family Dentist – About Us – Blockley Family Dental
Dr. Ron Blockley
Family Dentist, Dr. Blockley was born in Herrin, a small town in southern Illinois. After receiving his undergraduate degree from Southern Illinois University, he worked as a project Engineer for McDonnell Douglas Aircraft in Long Beach, California. While undergoing extensive orthodontic treatment and corrective jaw surgery, Dr. Blockley’s interest developed in the dental field and inspired him to return to school and pursue a career in dentistry.
He received his D.M.D. from the University of Louisville, School of Dentistry, and then moved to Greenville, North Carolina to begin his General Practice Residency at East Carolina University School of Medicine.
Upon completion of his residency, he moved to the Nashville area as an associate dentist in Spring Hill, Tennessee. The small town atmosphere of Murfreesboro and the friendliness of the community reminded him of his hometown, making Murfreesboro the place he would choose to begin his private practice.
Dr. Blockley met his wife Christine during residency in Greenville, NC. They made their home in Murfreesboro in 1999 and are active members of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church. They are the proud parents of two beautiful children, Noah and Sophia.
Comprehensive patient care best describes Dr. Blockley’s approach to your family’s dental health. He takes into consideration every aspect of a patient’s health when formulating a treatment plan. His goal is to provide high quality dental care with maximum patient comfort.
