Meet Our Harker Heights, Tx Dentists
Melinda Duncan, DDS
“What I love most about dentistry is the opportunity to change patient’s lives. Whether I’m extracting a tooth for a patient in pain or building someone’s confidence by giving them porcelain veneers, nothing is more satisfying to me than a patient’s sigh of relief or a patient’s transformation from embarrassed to confident.”
Dr. Duncan obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Memphis and went on to obtain her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from The University of Tennessee Health Science Center. During her time at UTHSC, Dr. Duncan was elected to participate in Advanced Fixed Prosthodontics Clinic, where she was able to take on especially complex implant, crown and bridge cases.
Dr. Duncan is a member of Academy of General Dentistry and The Women of Austin Dental Society. Dr. Duncan volunteers her time with Texas Mission of Mercy.
