Dr. Suzanne King was accepted into Emory Dental School after only three years of college and was one of only eight women in the entire dental school. She was the first woman accepted into the orthodontic program at Emory and was the first female orthodontist in the state of Georgia. She has been the go-to Atlanta orthodontist for almost 40 years. Drs. King and McCune are the first mother/daughter partnership in the state and one of only a handful in the country.
Dr. King married her high school sweetheart, Thad King, who graduated from the Lovett School. They have four grown children and love being empty nesters. They have eight grandchildren but are convinced that they don't look old enough for that!
Dr. King focuses on giving back to her local community as well as the world. Locally, she is heavily involved with treating members of the Lost Boys of Sudan, and she volunteers at the Good Samaritan Dental Clinic. She is active with the Christian Medical and Dental Association and travels abroad with them, treating people who have never had the chance to see a dentist.
