Knob Creek Oral Clinic

Dr. Standford Prince chose a 3,450 square foot office building adjacent to Truelight Eye Care in Johnson City, Tenn. The handicap-accessible building features four treatment rooms, two offices, a waiting room, consultation room, kitchen break room, and reception center. The facility is outfitted with state-of-the-art technology including Midmark surgery equipment and Sirona 3D imaging hardware.

Dan Crawford, Branch Manager of Patterson Dental of Knoxville, said, “Knob Creek Oral Clinic spared no expense in procuring the best and latest equipment to provide the highest-quality treatment for its clients in Johnson City.”

Dr. Prince worked with the full-service family of Mitch Cox Companies, Mitch Cox Development developed the office building, Mitch Cox Realtor found Dr. Prince the space and will manage the property, and Mitch Cox Construction executed the design-build for his office.

“The Mitch Cox companies are as much a part of the ‘founding fathers’ of Knob Creek Oral Clinic as I am. Their involvement and guidance helped me get to where I am today,” Dr. Prince said.


About Sandford W. Prince, DMD

dr prince headshotDr. Prince is originally a native of New York where he graduated from the City University of New York with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. Following this, he moved to St. Louis, Missouri where he graduated from the Washington University School of Dental Medicine. Upon graduating with a Doctorate in Medical Dentistry, he felt a need to give back to the country by serving in the US Army Medical Corps.
What started as one tour of duty lasted well over two decades of service to the US Army. After eight years spent as a General Dentist, Dr. Prince trained at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center, El Paso Texas as an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. With his training completed, Dr. Prince had varying assignments with the Army. He was Chief of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for both the Darnall Army Hospital at Fort Hood, Texas and the Reynolds Army Hospital at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
Dr. Prince had several overseas assignments including deployment to Baghdad, Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. There he was instrumental in treating scores of US Army personnel who suffered head and neck injuries on the battlefield. Dr. Prince earned the Army Bronze Star Medal for his actions in treating fellow soldiers in battle.
After retiring from the military, Dr. Prince moved to Johnson City, Tennessee with his family where his daughter is enrolled at East Tennessee State University and his wife Deborah is a teacher at Cherokee Elementary School.

He said, “After the years dedicated to the military, I feel that now is a good time to open a private practice to use my experience and training to give back to the civilian community here in Johnson City.”
