Inman Park Dentistry is proud to be a part of the historic, beautiful, and vibrant Inman Park neighborhood. Founded in 2006 by Dr. Walter Leeks, and now owned by Dr. Alex Rodriguez (since 2013), Inman Park Dentistry has been seeing after the oral health of your neighbors for decades.
Dr. Rodriguez, along with his associate Dr. Megan Butler, have built a loyal following of patients who appreciate their comfortable, caring, and straightforward approach.
Our philosophy stresses minimally-invasive dentistry, utilizing modern procedures to implement practical solutions for functional, long-lasting, and beautiful smiles.
As a general rule, our doctors tend to be very conservative in their treatment recommendations, and will often elect to leave alone some minor tooth issues such as: chips, staining, and normal wear and tear. Sometimes even for small cavities all we do is note and track them over time, before electing to restore them as needed. For some patients that may not be the right approach, but overall it works well for us.
"I have a passion for working with my hands and a desire to create, which is why I became a dentist. When I'm not busy doing dentistry, I am a daily bicycle commuter and part-time artist. For ten years I lived in the nearby Reynoldstown neighborhood, but as my family outgrew that house, I now live in Ormewood Park with my wife, two kids, and two dogs.
Dr. Butler grew up in Alabama, and attended dental school in Boston. She and her husband live in the nearby Druid Hills neighborhood of Atlanta.
"As a child, I remember always asking my parents for various Arts and Crafts kits for my birthday: clay sculptures, jewelry making, water color sets etc. As I grew older, that desire to create has stayed with me, so dentistry was an obvious fit for me."
I have held various positions in dentistry since 2010, working as a Dental Assistant, Patient Coordinator, and now Office Manager. My clinical and administrative backgrounds have been useful in performing my duties. It is my pleasure to connect with patients on a deeper level - helping and caring for them.
I'm a native of Atlanta. In my leisure time, I enjoy traveling, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
My goal is to help our patients achieve the best oral hygiene on a continual basis. I take great pride in my work and patient care, and enjoy seeing patients smile.
I came here from Sierra Leone in 1990 and Georgia has been "on my mind” ever since I graduated from Georgia Southwestern University with a degree in Sociology. I have one young daughter.
I have a B.S. in Dental Hygiene from Clayton State University and thoroughly enjoy taking care of my patients.
My goal is to ensure every patient enjoys their visit and looks forward to seeing us! I strive to provide an experience that is comfortable, relaxing, and leaves you feeling renewed.
During my off time I like to stay active at my kickboxing gym, cycling, roller-blading, visiting new places with my partner and loving on my pets Lola, Leon, and Sophia. Can't wait to see your smile!
I have a passion for working with others and offering gentle, skillful care. I immigrated from Iran in 2000 to California where I earned my dental assistance degree from ROP in San Juan Capistrano. I then moved to Georgia in 2007 and sought my Expanded-Duties degree from Georgia Gwinnett College. I have experience in both private and corporate offices, offering high quality treatment for 20 years.
During my free time I enjoy going on hikes, trying out food places with my daughter, and traveling.
After graduating from dental assisting school in 2015, I remember nervously driving to my first interview thinking, "how I will sell myself?" But I thought, just be yourself!
Our smiles tell a lot, but they can also hide a lot. I take pride in connecting with each of my patients, and it is extremely gratifying for me to literally be at their side as they reach goals along their dental health journey.
Otherwise, I enjoy spending quality time with my teenage son, traveling, & especially eating!
