Tammeka Nickleberry, DDS
Dr. Nickleberry received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Baylor College of Dentistry in 2005. Prior to that, she received her undergraduate degree from Prairie View A&M University. Dr. Nickleberry began practicing dentistry in the Houston area in 2009, and she recently expanded her practice to the Pearland area in 2016. She wants to help change the experience of dentistry for her patients and help people fall in love with their smiles. To do this, Dr. Nickleberry strives to create an amazing, care-free experience that in turn creates healthy, gorgeous smiles. She also strives to help patients achieve total awareness about their general health and how their oral health impacts their overall well-being. In short, she wants the days of “hating” to see the dentist to cease to exist with her patients.
To give her patients the best possible care, Dr. Nickleberry stays current with continuing her education by taking a variety of classes in all disciplines of dentistry. She also hosts an implant study club with doctors who have taught her how to place dental implants. In addition, Dr. Nickleberry is a member of the Spear Study Club, which focuses on a comprehensive approach to dentistry by treating the patient as a whole. Dr. Nickleberry is also a member of the International Association of Orthodontists, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. She has completed hundreds of hours in implant and orthodontic dentistry training to help provide better care for her patients.
Dr. Nickleberry’s family is from Naples, Texas, which is located in the northeast corner of the state. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, reading, running, and weight lifting.
