About Dr. Young C. Okeke
Have a toothache? Infection in your gums? Cracked tooth? Well let’s get to the root of the problem! I’m Dr. Young Okeke, but people call me Dr. Young, and I specialize in the field of endodontics performing root canals. A long time ago when the nerve inside your tooth became compromised the tooth had to be pulled, but now we can save the tooth by performing root canal therapy. The procedure is similar to getting a filling, but for the root of your tooth.
I joined Dental TLC September 2019 and am delighted to be part of an awesome staff with the opportunity to treat our amazing patients. I’m originally from New York City but had the amazing opportunity to live all over the U.S., deploy on an aircraft carrier, and travel the world while taking care of our Marines as a Navy Dental Officer. After my time in the Navy I completed my master’s degree and endodontic certificate at LSU (Geaux Tigers). I always wanted to eventually settle down in Atlanta and moved here immediately afterwards to join this great team.
When I’m not in the office you may find me out in town cycling, hiking, at the gym, or sampling some of the great food Atlanta restaurants have to offer. If you see me out and about, don’t be a stranger and say hello.
