Meet The Staff

  • Dr. Joseph Kyle Donaghey, DMD

    Dr. Donaghey joined the Innovation Family Dental team in February 2013.  He spent the early years of his life in Mobile, AL.  Son of an orthodontist, Dr. Jimmy Donaghey, his interest and involvement in the dental profession began at an early age. During his college years, Dr. Donaghey spent his summers performing lab and clinical procedures at his father's office. He completed his undergraduate studies at Auburn University, earning a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences and graduating with Cum Laude honors. Dr. Donaghey went on to complete his dental education at UAB School of Dentistry.  His three children, Mila, Rhett, and Sam can occasionally be seen at the office when they bring him lunch and try to redecorate his office with crayons and sidewalk chalk.

    Dr. Donaghey has a passion for providing care to the under-served. Through his involvement in Christian Medical Ministries of Alabama, Dr. Donaghey has participated in mission trips to the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica, providing dental treatment to people who can't afford or do not have access to care. During his senior year of dental school, Dr. Donaghey worked at the Franklin Primary Health Center, Mobile Health Department, and the Christ Health Center, donating treatment to poverty level patients.  While living in Decatur, Dr. Donaghey served at the Community Fee Clinic of Morgan county providing care to patients in poverty.  

  • Dr. Corey Ford, DMD

     Dr. Ford is originally from Chattanooga Tennessee. He attended Auburn University for his undergraduate studies, where he earned a degree in Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Ford then went to the UAB School of Dentistry to earn his Doctorate in Dental Medicine. Upon graduation he was awarded the Endodontic Achievement Award. He has over 10 years of experience in all areas of general dentistry and moved back to Auburn in 2020 to join Dr. Donaghey in practice. 

    Dr. Ford and his wife, Erica, have two daughters, Caroline and Claire. Outside of dentistry, his passions include bow hunting, golf, and spending time on the water with his family.  Dr. Ford also enjoys using his gift in dentistry to serve others on mission trips. We are very confident that all patients will be in great hands when they see him in the office. His humor and fun spirit will leave patients at ease!
