Tulsa dentist, Dr. Meghan Hodges is a proud recipient of a Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, which she attended after completing her undergrad in Human Nutrition and Pre-Med at Oklahoma State University. She began working as a general dentist before rapidly expanding her skill set to include orthodontics, sedation dentistry, restorative dentistry, and more. Dr. Hodges believes strongly in improving patient and community well-being through dental care and especially through nutritional health and instruction.
Dr. Hodges is passionate about dentistry. She strives to provide her patients with the best treatment options modern dentistry has to offer. This includes orthodontic treatment (both traditional and clear braces), root canal therapy, and dental crowns. She is dedicated to ensuring positive patient experiences. She is trained in the placement of CEREC crowns, which allows her to offer her patients with the convenience of same-day dental crowns. She also has certification in conscious sedation, so she can offer sedation dentistry to help anxious patients have a more relaxing experience.
Embracing the high treatment standards pioneered by Dr. Kevin Winters, Dr. Hodges is beginning treatment at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). She is excited about learning new techniques in cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry and using them to provide her patients with beautiful, functional smiles.
Dr. Hodges’ experience includes a wide range of general dentistry services, including everything from typical crowns and root canals to things as niche as reconstructive dentistry and pediatric sedation dentistry.
Dr. Hodges has been extremely active in local communities, providing dental care and patient education through a large number of outreach groups including:
- Smile Kentucky
