Dr. Carolyn Walker graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas, in 2001, but she has been involved with dentistry far longer than her dental degree implies. The field has been a deep passion for Dr. Walker since she was in high school. She worked as a dental assistant in San Antonio and her hometown of Harlingen for 13 years prior to obtaining her dental degree.
Since graduating, Dr. Walker has attended a multitude of continuing education programs ranging from pharmacology to implant placement and restoration. These courses have allowed her to provide a vast array of dental services, such as cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, endodontics, and implant dentistry. This allows her patients to have most of their dental treatment completed in office, but when necessary, Dr. Walker refers to excellent specialists. Dr Walker is also a Dental Sleep Solution dentist which means she is highly trained in the field of dental sleep medicine.
Through dentistry, Dr. Walker is able to share a service that she is so passionate about with others. Offering her expertise outside our office is also something she does with The Texas Smiles Foundation, Give Kids a Smile, San Antonio Dental Clinic, and many other programs as time allows. Dr. Walker also serves in the Texas Dental Association, as well as the American Dental Association as a delegate on important dental issues that affect us on a daily basis. These issues concern the cost and the accessibility of dentistry, which are vital in the everyday function of dentistry and healthcare. She is also a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Texas Association of Women Dentists, Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, and the Pierre Fauchard Academy.
Dr. Walker’s practice is committed to treating all patients with honesty, integrity, and respect. It is our goal to provide you with the highest level of care based on a thorough and comprehensive diagnostic process, experience, and knowledge. We do this in the most relaxed environment using music, headphones, and a massage chair, which create a spa-like atmosphere.
Outside of the office, Dr. Walker enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren. Traveling, camping and just about any outdoor activity are some of the things that keep the family busy.
