MEET OUR DENTISTS
Carolyn B. Walker, DDS
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 that she is highly trained in the field of dental sleep medicine.
Through dentistry, Dr. Walker can share a service that she is so passionate about with others. Offering her expertise outside of 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 in 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 thorough and comprehensive diagnoses, experience, and knowledge. We do this in the most relaxed environment, using music, headphones, and a massage chair to 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.

In her free time, Dr. Martinez enjoys traveling, dental photography, and spending quality time with her friends and family.
