About Dr. Jenkins

Nashville— the city that has recently become popularized by the masses for its music, food, and fun— has always been home to Dr. Makeya Jenkins!  Most transients living in the city today, now consider natives like her, a unicorn.  This uniqueness extends beyond her geographical longevity in the South.  She strives to take a humanistic approach to care for all patients, allowing them to get to know her and develop trust before committing to treatment.

Dr. Jenkins received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Tennessee State University.  After completing her undergraduate program, she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Meharry Medical College.  She enhanced the foundations of her dental skills by completing a General Practice Residency Program.  Her education and experience have taught her the importance of taking an individualized approach to caring for patients.

Learn, grow, and evolve is a mantra that Dr. Jenkins upholds not only, professionally, but also personally.  She takes advantage of meaningful continuing education every chance she gets to ensure that her patients receive the very best information and technology to enhance their oral health.  In addition, Dr. Jenkins holds memberships with both the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentists.  Like Dr. Jenkins, these organizations are committed to advocating for patients and professional advancement of dentists through education and research.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and four children.  They enjoy traveling, sports, and board games.  Her individual hobbies include cooking, reading, and listening to podcasts.  Dr. Jenkins looks forward to getting to know more about you at your visit!
