Dr. Donald Walley
Dr. Walley developed a deep respect for the field of dentistry from his father, who practiced in the Memphis area for more than 40 years. Dr. Don Walley has continued this family legacy; he has been in practice for more than 33 years. Dr. Walley graduated from the University of Memphis and earned dental credentials at the University of Tennessee, College of Dentistry. With an unquenchable thirst for learning, he also completed studies at the Pacific Aesthetic Continuum in Cosmetic Dentistry. Doctor Walley has also obtained the designation as a qualified dentist to treat obstructive Sleep Apnea patients with oral appliances.
Dr. Walley is a strong believer in staying abreast of the latest developments in dentistry, bringing the benefits of that current knowledge to his patients. To this end, he maintains active membership in the following professional organizations:
- American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine
- American Dental Association®
- Tennessee Dental Association
- Memphis Dental Society
While studying at UT Dental School, Dr. Walley met the love of his life. He and Dr. Glenda Walley married during that time. Both doctors work at Pickwick Family Dental Care. They have two bright sons, one in pharmacy and one who is a teacher and also involved in environmental science.
Dr. Walley serves as a deacon of the First Baptist Church in Counce, Tennessee. He has participated in multiple mission trips to Africa. The doctor is also an accomplished musician and songwriter.
