Victoria Walling, DDS
General Dentist – Limited to the Practice of Children
Dr. Victoria Walling was raised a Texan in Tomball, TX along with her 4 siblings. Growing up her interests mainly consisted of sports (swimming, water polo, and gymnastics) and on weekends going to the beach, fishing, and doing anything outdoors. After high school, she went on to graduate from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi with a degree in biochemistry. She then was accepted into the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston where she completed her doctorate. Dr. Walling knew at the age of 4 that being a dentist was her dream and has worked in dental offices since she was 13 years old- that experience along with her formal education has helped shape the kind of doctor she is today. One of the many reasons she fell in love with dentistry is because she can watch her patients grow and maintain her patient’s oral health throughout their whole life. However, as she became a mother and started treating more pediatric patients- she fell in love with this aspect of dentistry. As a mother of three herself, she knows how important it is to have pediatric patients comfortable and is very passionate about giving her patients the most pleasant experience no matter their age. She is a conservative dentist who loves to educate her patients so that we can work together to focus on not just oral health but overall health. Dr. Walling looks forward to enriching the lives and smiles of all who walk through our door.
