Meet Dr. Devon Conklin, DDS

Dr. Devon ConklinAs a dentist, I have the opportunity to help change people’s lives every day. I enjoy building relationships with others, helping to improve their health and feel better about themselves. I love learning about my patients, about their families, and what brings joy to their life. Most of all, I love to see them smile!

Education

I attended Baylor University, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in 2005. I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Maryland Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 2009. I have continued my education through a one-year residency to strengthen my skills in implant placement, periodontal surgery, and restorative dentistry. I have attended the Pankey Institute where I have broadened my learning in restorative dentistry. In order to be a successful dentist, I believe that I must continue my education to stay up to date on techniques and procedures.

Family Life

I currently reside in South Baltimore with my husband, Kyle, and our German shorthaired pointer, Belle. I enjoy spending time outdoors, entertaining, and traveling. I am active in my church and in an mentoring/afterschool program SHARPkids.
