About Our Dental Practice
Dr. Darlene Sand Wall (Henry) knew she wanted to be a dentist from an early age, and her tenacity and determination helped her achieve her lifelong goal of becoming a dentist by the age of 30. Dr. Sand Wall graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry in 1985 with a degree in dental hygiene. She went on to obtain her doctor of dental medicine (DMD) degree from the same institution in 1989. Immediately following graduation, Dr. Sand Wall began practicing dentistry in the Northern Kentucky area. Shortly thereafter, she served on the Kentucky Board of Dentistry for eight years, and also served at the national level of the ADA for four years. Today, from her private practice located in Erlanger, which she opened on her own in 2007, Dr. Sand Wall provides patients of all ages with quality preventive, cosmetic, and restorative dental care.
