Smiling giraffe, cackling hyenas, and of course, the majestic African elephant were just a few of Dr. June’s childhood neighbors growing up in Kenya’s coastal lowland of Mombasa. Dr. June was born in Mombasa and grew up a farmgirl near the Shimba Hills National Reserve, home to one of Earth’s last remaining coastal rainforests. Raised by teachers who instilled the value of education, Dr. June left for the United States at age 19 to pursue her studies at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. During college Dr. June worked as a dental assistant and nanny. She graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in biology. After college, Dr. June earned her DMD at Georgia Regents University (formerly the Medical College of Georgia) and later pursued a specialty in Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. June’s residency specialized in oral health care for infants and children through adolescence. Her rotations at the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta focused exclusively on medically compromised patients, including infants and children with cleft lip/palette and life-threatening illnesses. As Chief Resident in Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. June founded a chapter of the Students United for American Tooth Fairy (SUAT). Dr. June is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association. She is a passionate advocate for preventative dentistry techniques for children 0-5 years old with infant education programs for new parents, daycare providers and at pre-K and elementary schools. She loves to spend time with her family gardening, volunteering, watching movies and listening to the sweet sounds of the ocean.
