Get to Know Dr. Robin Hobbs

Dr. Robin Hobbs was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Even as a teenager, Dr. Hobbs knew she wanted to work in the healthcare field. While attending Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions, she had the opportunity to take courses in various healthcare fields and the dental courses particularly sparked her interest. At this time, Dr. Hobbs was going through her own orthodontic treatment and found herself fascinated with the industry. 

From there, Dr. Hobbs went on to attend Prairie View A&M University in Prairie View, Texas for her undergrad, majoring in biology with a minor in chemistry. Then, Dr. Hobbs completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee before completing her residency in pediatric dentistry at The University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Dr. Hobbs is also board-certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and is an active member of the Tennessee Dental Association, Tennessee Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry. 

What Dr. Hobbs loves most about being a pediatric dentist is getting to turn children’s days around. Even if a kid comes in feeling nervous, Dr. Hobbs helps them leave excited to come back. She is grateful to be able to foster a warm, community feel at her practice and hopes that you will feel at home in her care. When she’s not tending to little smiles, she can be found traveling, painting, attending sports games, and spending quality time with family and friends.

Getting Ready for Your First Visit?

At your first visit, we will be focused on getting to know you and your child. Our team knows that sometimes meeting new people is tough! That is why we approach every visit with patience and compassion. If it takes a little while for your kiddo to warm up to us, don’t worry! We are happy to share a smile and a giggle to help the nerves go away. We will also give you a tour of the office before walking you back to the chair to familiarize you with our office and help your little one feel comfortable. Next, we will clean your child’s teeth, Dr. Hobbs will perform an exam, and you’ll get time to ask any questions you may have. Finally, we’ll schedule a follow up appointment and send your child home with a reward for a job well-done.

Serving Up Smiles in a Top-Notch Environment

The minute you enter our office, you and your child will be on cloud 9. Our kid-friendly space has been designed with growing kiddos in mind. From “in-flight” entertainment to a complimentary comfort menu, we’ve thought of everything to keep your kiddo calm, engaged, and content.

Fun & Friendly Space

We’ve designed our space to reflect our fun aviation theme which helps spark creativity and gives kids something familiar to look forward to each time they visit.

Ceiling-Mounted TVs & Headphones

During their appointments, your child will be able to watch their favorite shows on our ceiling-mounted TVs. We even have headphones to help them tune out noises that might be overstimulating.

Comfort Menu

Your child’s comfort is our priority. That’s why we let them choose from our comfort menu to select a calming scent or a stuffed animal or blanket to cuddle with during their visit.

Modern Technology & Tools

We are proud to use only the best tools and equipment at our modern office. This helps us treat kiddos more efficiently, more comfortably, and more effectively.

Caring for Our Community

At Aviation Pediatric Dental Associates, we are committed to helping our community smile. For us, that means going beyond providing exceptional dental care. That is why we are proud to partner with Coaching for Literacy and the Memphis Child Advocacy Center. Together, we can help protect children in our community and give them the resources to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
