Dr. Lisa Curry, DMD
Dr. Lisa Curry specializes in general, family, cosmetic, and pediatric dentistry. She received her BA in Biology from Hampton University and received her DMD from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Lisa J. Curry has her DMD (Doctorate of Medical Dentistry) degree from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine (UCONN SDM). She received a top-notch education from a dental school known for cutting-edge research and development of new dental technology and materials. When Dr. Curry graduated in 1997, UCONN had the distinction of being in the top three dental schools (based on National Dental Board scores) for the previous 20 years.
A DMD degree is different from a DDS (Doctorate of Dental Surgery) because there is more emphasis placed on learning medicine. During Dr. Curry’s training at UCONN SDM, dental students were required to take the first two years of medical courses along with medical students in addition to their dental school curriculum. Therefore, UCONN trained dentists have a better understanding of patient’s overall health, not just dental health. Dr. Curry’s additional medical training helps her to treat patients more comprehensively and safely.
She served her General Practice Residency at Veteran’s Administration Medical Center Hampton. She is a member of the Peninsula Implant Study Club, Williamsburg Dental Study Club, and The Dawson Academy-Scholar Alumni.
In her spare time, Dr. Curry is involved with many special charities such as the Colgate Bright Smiles and Bright Futures Event, which has provided free oral screenings for Head Start Students in the area. She also participates in community outreach programs that distribute food, school supplies, furniture and toys through her church Liberty Worship Center.
Dr. Curry is married to Clarence, whom she met at Hampton University. They have two daughters Jocelyn and Sophia. She enjoys spending time with her family and watching movies and cooking shows. She also sings on the praise and worship team at her church. She receives fulfillment from helping her patients reach the best possible level of oral health with a gentle touch!
