While Dr. Johnny Neely has a broad range of experience in both private practice and academic dentistry, what has made him a popular clinician is the laser focus he gives to each patient, applying all his experience and knowledge to creating not just a great dental experience but also enhanced long-term oral health. A cum laude graduate of the University of Mississippi with a B.S. in Zoology, Dr. Neely graduated from the University of Mississippi School of Dentistry in 1985, when he entered private practice. He also served for a decade as a part-time clinical instructor at UM’s School of Dentistry in the Department of Endodontics from 1985 through 1995. He is licensed by the Mississippi Board of Dental Examiners; his professional memberships include the Mississippi Dental Association and the District Four Dental Society. He and wife Diane, married since 1984, have two grown children, Hannah and Reid, and attend Christ United Methodist Church. An avid outdoorsman, Dr. Neely can be found in his off-hours on the golf course, in the woods hunting or on the water fishing.
