Tonya finds it deeply satisfying to be working with a dental team who take pride in their quality of service and integrity. The patients come first here, a natural result of the outstanding ethical focus of the practice and other team members.

Her perfect day would be a fun-filled trip to the zoo and a pizza night with her girls and husband. While pizza is among her favorite food groups, the best of all is supreme pizza!

When she was a Biology student at the University of Arkansas, she started working for several Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery offices. After graduation in 2014, she continued assisting in Oral surgery until her move back to Memphis a year ago when she switched over to a general dentistry. She joined our team last year and has truly enjoyed learning from such a well-rounded, caring staff. She has loved getting to know our wonderful patients and is excited to continue our pursuit to provide the best care possible.

Megan hopes to attend dental school in the next few years after completion of her masters and feels very blessed to have the opportunity to gain more hands-on dental experience with Dr. Holcomb and his amazing team. Her hope is one day to own a dental practice with the same values in quality patient care that is found at Dr. Holcomb’s office.

When away from work Megan focuses most of her time, not studying, being outdoors, staying active, and playing with her golden lab Raz.
