Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
When Dr. Lewis was just eight years old, she was in a major car accident that left her with a broken jaw. This injury required multiple surgeries and visits to the dentist’s office to fully correct. The silver lining of this incident was that it inspired her lifelong love of the dental field! Thankfully, she had a great team of dentists taking care of her who later became her mentors. Today, she wants to be able to help each patient feel as comfortable as that practice did for her all those years ago.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After graduating as the valedictorian of her high school class, Dr. Lewis completed her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and a minor in Chemistry with honors from the University of Southern Mississippi. She then attended the Howard University College of Dentistry, where she received the Community Dentistry Award and the Academy of Esthetic Dentistry Award. She is also certified in Invisalign and laser dentistry. She is a proud member of the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry.
Outside of the Office, What Do you Like to Do?
Dr. Lewis is happily married to Derico, who was her high school sweetheart. They have two kids named Blake and Olivia, as well as a fur-baby Boxer named Chase. When she isn’t busy at the practice, her favorite things include traveling, attending her kids' swimming, basketball & golf events, and participating in local fun runs with her friends.
