Dr. White grew up in Taylorsville, Mississippi. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Southern Mississippi. She then continued her education at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, where she procured a degree in Doctor of Dental Medicine. Dr. White is an active member of the American Dental Association and a member of the Mississippi Association of Women Dentists.
Dr. White joined our practice in August 2020 and can’t wait to serve the White House citizens. She states, “White House just feels like home because it’s a small community full of big hearts” and has already begun to immerse herself in local happenings. She hopes to dispel the public’s stigma of Dentists and help her patients realize how much a person’s oral health affects one’s overall well being. Perseverance, dependability, and honesty are values that drive her to administer world-class dental care to her patients.
When Dr. White isn’t providing care at the Smile Center, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, especially her dog Jack. She cherishes the outdoors and loves spending time hunting, fishing, and just hanging out at the park.
