Dr. Keisha Judd is from the islands of St. Kitts and Sint Maarten in the Caribbean. At the age of 17, she moved to the U.S. to attend college and has lived here ever since. Today, she is happily married and a proud mother of four children and one golden doodle.

As a child, Dr. Judd didn’t have a typical dental experience; in fact, she never visited the dentist! Instead, her uncle used to inspect her and her sister’s teeth every Sunday with a flashlight.

Once in college, Dr. Judd enrolled in a pre-dental summer program that would change it all! She immediately fell in love with dentistry’s perfect combination of art, science, and its hands-on approach. There was no denying it; she had found her life-long passion.

Nowadays, Dr. Judd combines her outstanding dental expertise with her caring and compassionate nature to create a unique whole-health approach to dentistry. Within her practice, she strives to build genuine connections with all patients and is committed to guiding you to true wellness.

When Dr. Judd isn’t working, you can find her doing all sorts of fun activities with her loving family. She especially enjoys traveling and learning about the culture of different places she visits.
