I was blessed to have Dr. Graham caring for me for my 18 years in Atlanta. First and foremost, Dr. Graham is an excellent person with unshakable integrity, honesty and faith. In terms of dentistry: he excelled at the rear combination of where “art meets science”. Incredible workmanship – top 1%. God bless.

A close friend told me of Dave recent passing. I haven't seen Dave since I moved to L.A. in 1979. I miss my 6 month visits with him. In fact, I still wear a crown he installed in 1975--that gives you an idea of the quality of dentistry he practiced. He was my pal. He was a pal to all of us guys on the softball team. Wherever he is, I hope there's a place close for him to SCUBA dive. RIP, Dave. We lost a good one when you left us.

Always enjoyed exchanges with Dr. Graham. He was the consummate professional and did a super job with my teeth as well as my brother and Father's teeth. He will be missed by all that came to know him. Cheers to you, Dr. Graham! You have finished the race In style, rest in peace, my friend!

My wife's sister Jennifer was Dr. Graham's assistant from the time I met them when I was in college over 45 years ago. When we moved to Atlanta 37 years ago we naturally went to Dr. Graham for our dental care. For all that time I never had to be concerned with what to do if any of us had a dental concern. We'd just go see Dr. Graham and he'd know what to do and take care of us. I was still trying to come to terms with learning he was retiring and I wouldn't be seeing him regularly anymore. Even though we knew we wouldn't be seeing him at the office anymore we figured Jennifer would keep us advised on how he was doing. Then we got the awful news Sunday, July 30 that he'd died. I am so sorry for the loss for his wife and all his friends, colleagues, and office staff especially Jennifer who had known him for so long.

Dr. Graham was my dentist since I was five years old. Im fifty seven now. I always looked forward to my visits to Dr. Graham's office. He was a mentor and a touchstone as I grew to adulthood, always taking an interest in what I was doing and being complimentary and uplifting. I can truly state that he was the embodiment of Humility, Passion, Integrity and Wisdom. He left the world a much better place and I am proud to have known him.

I have just learned about Dr. Graham's passing. I am so saddened by this news. He was my dentist for almost 30 years. He was a prince of a guy: genuine, caring, kind, empathetic, and he always had positive things to tell his patients. I know that he is now in Heaven with my husband and I am sure they are having long conversations as this did here on earth. My condolences to his wife and his family and to his wonderful staff, Jennifer, Melissa and all the ladies who worked for him including Helen and Donna. God bless him.

As a patient of Dr. Graham I can say that I have never known a nicer, more caring or talented healer. I was his patient for almost 15 years and continued the relationship even after moving to Florida. He fixed things that others couldn't or wouldn't. Seeing him and the wonderful member's of his staff in the office was always such a pleasure. My heart is heavy but that loss is somewhat relieved by the memory of his glowing smile and caring words. I will miss you sir!

May God bless his soul.

So very sorry to hear of Dr. Graham's passing. He was a kind man. He was my dentist for over 45 years. My children grew up with Dr. Graham as their dentist. It was hard for them to find someone else when they moved away, because he set the bar so high. He will be greatly missed.
