Letitia M. Williams, DDS
Dr. Letitia Williams earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at Howard University in Washington, DC. Before attending dental school, she studied zoology at Howard University as an undergraduate. In addition, she has obtained a Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree and a Doctor of Ministry (DMin) degree, both from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. As a dentist, Dr. Williams’s goal is to promote dental health and to provide high-quality service to a diverse population. She finds it to be nothing short of a privilege to serve people who travel from near and far to Bullock County. It brings her great joy to impact her patients’ quality of life for the better.
Dr. Williams has been happy to practice dentistry in the lovely environs of Union Springs for nearly 30 years. While she is very experienced, she remains committed to continuing her dental education several times every year. Dr. Williams is a member of both the American Dental Association and the National Dental Association. She is also a member of Phi Beta Kappa – the nation’s oldest and most widely known academic honor society.
Dr. Williams has been married for over thirty years to her husband, Tom. She is the mother of Geneva, the mother-in-law of Justin, and the grandmother of Sophie. In her spare time, Dr. Williams is an avid NY Times crossword puzzler. She is also the Presiding Elder of the Tuskegee District of the NE Annual Conference of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, where she is known as “The Reverend Doctor Letitia Williams-Watford.”
I invite any and all to come experience “the difference” that caring can make.
