Dr. Walker Swaney, D.D.S
Dr. Swaney began his dental career in Oxford in 1975. He has enjoyed the ever changing and improving field of dentistry in these 47 years. He is fortunate to have had many of his patients in his practice since the beginning—now working on the third generation of some of these families. He founded Oxford Dental in 1983 and has enjoyed growing his practice and serving the Oxford and surrounding communities.
Offering a vast array of dental procedures, he is a member of the American Dental Association, Mississippi Dental Association, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, American Orthodontic Association, Certified Invisalign Provider, American Endodontic Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Academy of Facial Esthetics. Dr. Swaney takes great pride in Oxford Dental and knows what the practice offers is truly unique. He thoroughly enjoys coming to work each day and finds reward in his “patient centric” practice with his fantastic staff and wonderful patients. He truly believes the culture we created through our training with the help of our team and committed patients have made a practice that stands alone and is what other practices should aspire to be.
Dr. Swaney has always enjoyed giving back to the community utilizing his time, his resources, and his talents as a dentist. He has also participated in numerous mission trips to Honduras in the 80’s and 90’s to provide dentistry for people in need.
Locally, Dr. Swaney was a Rotarian for 35 years and recipient of a Paul Harris Fellow. He was one of the founders of Oxford Youth Baseball Association which became a driving force for Oxford community baseball at that time. He was president of the Ole Miss Lafayette County Alumni Association. He has been a devoted member of the O U Methodist Church choir for 45 years. He enjoys singing and has performed in many musicals at the Ford Center at Ole Miss including The Mikado, Hello Dolly, H.M.S. Pinafore, and Amahl and the Night Visitor.
Personally, Dr. Swaney has always loved hunting and fishing, whether being in the woods (not shooting anymore) or on the water he finds great joy and inspiration.
He is proud of his 3 grown children—Walker J., Sara Love, and Mary Linley. However, he is most proud of his fabulous 6 grandchildren who affectionally call him “Pop”. He truly understands why they are called ”GRAND” children!! His driving force, his biggest supporter, and the love of his life is Molissia to whom he has been married 49 years now.
Dr. Swaney truly realizes that his life, his health, and his successes have been a blessing from God.
