Meet Your El Paso, TX Dentist

John M. Purdy, DDS FAGD

Doctor

Dr. Purdy has proudly offered high quality dental care for El Paso residents since opening his practice in 1977. He earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Southern California and, prior to that, his Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and Psychology from Loyola University of Los Angeles.

Each year, Dr. Purdy and his team complete numerous hours of continuing education in order to stay abreast of all the advances in the field of dentistry to ensure that we offer our patients the highest quality care. He was awarded Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, an honor that places him in the top 7% of all dentists. Additionally, Dr. Purdy is active in a local dental study club, and he maintains membership in the Academy of General Dentistry and the Texas Dental Association. Dr. Purdy has served as President of the El Paso District Dental Society and the El Paso Academy of General Dentistry, Director of the El Paso Del Norte Study Club and has proudly served on the Texas Dental Association’s Board of Directors. He was among the nominees of Texas AGD Dentist of the Year 1990, 2002, 2014 and 2016 and he’s a Fellow of the American College of Dentists and the International College of Dentists.

At the May 2021 Texas Dental Association House of Delegates Meeting in San Antonio, Dr. Purdy was awarded the very prestigious TDA Gold Medal for Distinguished Service Award by 2020-2021 TDA President Dr. Jaqueline Plemons. One such award is distributed annually if, and only if, there is a worthy recipient that fulfills all required criteria and is recommended by his peers. Since this award has historically been given only to those who have served as Presidents of the TDA and served on the ADA Board of Directors, it was even more special for Dr. Purdy. He was shocked by the recognition since it was so totally unexpected, yet, fully appreciated.

He currently serves as a Texas Delegate to the American Dental Association, an El Paso Delegate to the Texas Dental Associate and as Co-Director of the EL Paso Del Norte Study Club.

In his spare time, Dr. Purdy enjoys singing. He currently is a member of the Saint Mathew Church Choir, but in his book, nothing beats a karaoke night with his family.

Aside from singing, he loves spending time with his three daughters, their husbands and his 6 grandchildren.
