Meet Dr. Sarah Walker

Sarah E. Walker, D.D.S.



Dr. Sarah Walker was born and raised in Knoxville, TN and is Dr. Cox’s step-daughter. She started working at the office during her summers off from school at age 14, quickly fell in love with dentistry and decided to pursue it as a career.  She attended West High School and then received her BS in Science at the University of Tennessee Knoxville after completing a 3-in-1 program with the UT College of Dentistry. Dr. Walker completed her dental training at the University Of Tennessee College Of Dentistry in Memphis, TN and graduated with high honors in 2012.

Dr. Walker joined Dr. Cox’s practice after graduation. She truly loves practicing with Dr. Cox and helping to take care of all the wonderful patients that she grew up with in the practice. Dr. Walker also worked with the Anderson County Health Department for 7 years providing dental care and screenings to the elementary students in Anderson County through their school program.

During her career, Dr. Sarah has volunteered locally with the Volunteer Ministries Center and the Knox County Health Department for national events likes Give Kids A Smile. She also joined a medical mission trip to Haiti in order to provide much needed dental care to the rural populations outside Leogane, Haiti.

She is an active member of the American Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association and our local Second District Dental Society. She also served on the Young Dentist Committee and Dental Health Committee for the Second District. In addition she is a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Society (only the top 20% of the dental school class is eligible), Dean's Honorary Odontological Society, Omicron Delta Kappa Honor Society, and Alpha Epsilon Delta Honor Society.

Dr. Walker and her husband, Dr. Frank, graduated together from UT College of Dentistry and eagerly moved back home to Knoxville.   When Dr. Sarah is not at the office she can be found cheering on the Vols, hiking the beautiful Smoky Mountains, or playing with her cat, Enzo.  She also has the travel bug and loves planning out new adventures!
