Tamara Garrett, DDS
Q: How have you mentored or inspired others who are following in your footsteps?
A: I feel very blessed to be a dentist and female minority business owner in Arlington. As the daughter of educators, my family instilled in me the importance of perpetual learning and giving back. I often speak to elementary and middle schools about dental health and host graduate students to shadow me at my practice, further enhancing their skill sets.
Q: What makes your practice unique?
My team and I are committed to providing our patients with the best, personalized care in the safest, most comfortable environment possible. Since dentistry is an aerosol-laden profession, I installed protective equipment, including air filters, foggers, extraoral suction and more—patients often joke they feel safer in my office than outside!
