Claudia N. Williams Conerly, DDS
What motivates and inspires you?
Access to care is an important issue to me. During my years working as a dentist in community health centers, many adults reported being afraid of the dentist as a result of a childhood dental experience. This motivated me to focus my energy on the most vulnerable among us: children. As a pediatric dentist, I provide children of all economic backgrounds access to dental care in a safe and gentle environment. It’s a privilege to be part of the lives of so many of our future leaders, educators, entrepreneurs and professionals.
What woman inspires you and why?
I’m greatly inspired by my mother, Reverend Dr. Versey Williams. I’ve learned countless lessons about perseverance by observing my mother’s journey. Despite many obstacles, she raised three children, worked full time and completed three degrees. My mother’s faith gave me a secure spiritual foundation for my success and accomplishments.
