Educational Background and Post Graduate Studies

“I feel that I went to one of the finest dental schools in the United States. However, education is a continuing process in order to maintain the highest standard of professionalism.”

Dr. Williams began her career in the field of dentistry in 1983 at Howard University as a Dental Hygienist. She graduated from Baltimore College Dental Surgery/University of Maryland (the first dental school in the world) in 1990. Throughout her dental school education, she received awards and recognition, including maintaining a 4.0 GPA during her initial year and an award for outstanding research in the Dental Clinical Science Research competition. She completed a fellowship in Holistic dentistry and is one of a very few general dentists who has achieved this accomplishment. Dr Williams is certified to use the only FDA approved laser for periodontal surgery. A specific procedure to regenerate the attachment of gum to the tooth for people with advanced gum disease with impending tooth loss. Only 150 dentists in the world have achieved this special status. She is passionate about improving the health status of people throughout the community and beyond.

Her education has not stopped there. Dr. Williams has taken over 100 continuing education courses in the past years. This reflects a commitment in bringing to her patients the latest techniques and to find better ways to serve the needs of her patients. She is passionate about improving the health status of people in the community.

Community Involvement

“Education is not only receiving, it is also sharing experiences and giving back to others.”

Dr. Williams lived in Tanzania in the 1970s and returns to volunteer in Africa on a regular basis. Since 1988, she has provided dental services to villagers and trains primary health care workers to recognize and diagnose dental diseases.
