About the Doctors

Walker Swaney, D.D.S.

I have a wonderful family with three grown children, Walker J., Sara Love and her husband James Whitney Rawlings and new pinky girl due in May, and Mary Linley married to Jonathon Davis, who have our first born grandchild, Motte Walker, who loves his grandparents. My wife and I recently welcomed the newest addition to our family with our second grandchild, Mary Linley - born on May 24, 2012. My beautiful wife, Molissia, and I have been married 40 years.

Dentistry has certainly been a rewarding, challenging changing profession. Where else can you completely alter and change someone's life immediately as when we remake their smile (and attitude and self confidence).

I am very proud to be a part of a team that focuses on specialized service and uncompromised care to all our patients.

I am proud of how our patients appreciate us, and they know in return how much we appreciate them. To have practiced in such a positive and fulfilling environment makes me a blessed and fortunate man.

Mike Huggins, D.M.D.

Hi, my name is Mike Huggins. I graduated from Winona High School in 1981 and grew up playing any sport that had a ball attached to it. Shortly after starting school at Ole Miss, I began working with handicapped kids at North Mississippi Regional Center. It helped put me through school, but was also a fulfilling job. I graduated from the University of Mississippi Dental School in 1994 and came back to Oxford as fast as I could. I enjoy the cosmetic side of Dentistry. The extreme makeover stuff, anything from braces and clear correct, to whitening to veneers! I also enjoy placing implants, what I think is the most exciting area in Dentistry right now. It's great to see people excited and comfortable with their smile.

My wife and best friend is Ashley Mullen from Jackson, MS. She is a Registered and Board Certified Dental Hygienist. However, she is presently spending her time and energy at home with our two children Lyla and Hayes. They live for their days on the beach in Destin, FL. When they go south to the beach, I head north to the cornfields of the Midwest. Next to those two, my passion is hunting whitetail deer and long bearded gobblers.

Member of: American Dental Association, Mississippi Dental Association, Academy of General Dentristry, American Orthodontic Society, American College of Implantology, and International Congress of Implantology, and Clear Correct Certified.

Marc Mercier, D.M.D.

Hello and welcome to our website! My name is Marc Mercier. I was born and raised in New Albany, Ms. After graduating from the University of Mississippi, I completed Dental School at Temple Dental School in Philadelphia, Pa. It did not take my wife, Janine, and I long to figure out we wanted to be back in the South. We now share a home in Oxford with our beautiful children. My son, Marc, and I are greatly out numbered by my three daughters: Isabelle, Audrey, and Georgia. By working at both Oxford Dental Clinic and New Albany Dental Clinic it leaves me little free time. When I do have some spare time, I enjoy sports, spending time with my family, and deer and turkey hunting.

We are very dedicated to providing a professional, friendly, and comfortable atmosphere for all of our patients. We want each person to have a positive and exciting visit at our office. I would appreciate the opportunity to take care of all your dental needs.

Member of: American Orthodontic Society, Tri-Lakes Study Club, and Clear Correct Certified

Clay Adams, D.M.D.

My name is Clay Adams, and I grew up in Brandon, MS. Long before graduating from Ole Miss in 2007, I've had a love for Oxford. Upon completing my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the University of Mississippi School of Dentistry, my wife Christina and I moved back to Oxford. I am proud to help serve a greater population of North Mississippi with the Oxford Dental Team.
