Dr. Blackwell's passion for safer, healthier living led her to merge natural beauty and aesthetics of modern dentistry with a more holistic, oral-systemic approach to dentistry. Her mission is to support her patients with long-term oral health and whole-body wellness in a safe, collaborative, clean, and comfortable space.

Dr. Blackwell earned her undergraduate degree in Environmental Science at Spelman College and her dental degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, School of Dentistry. Following dental school, she completed her residency training at the VA Medical Center in Washington, D.C. She earned a Fellowship Award with the Academy of General Dentistry. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Louisiana Dental Association, Louisiana Academy of General Dentistry, Holistic Dental Association, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine and The Weston A. Price Foundation.

Beyond dentistry, she loves to spend time with her husband and their three boys while fervently pursuing healthy living in every area of her life.
