Dr. April Savoy

Born in Lafayette Louisiana to a Single-Mom and raised a few miles away in Carencro the two words that best describe her are Impressive and Inspirational.  While we don't get to choose the circumstances of our birth we do get to choose what we do with our life.  Brought up in the church by a hardworking Mom supported by a devoted aunt she not only beat the odds she annihilated them. 

My Story

April attended Carencro High School where she excelled and graduated in the top 10% of her class and was a member of the National Honor Society. She was awarded the TOPS Performance Scholarship - a full ride scholarship based on academic achievement and the results of standardized testing.  She went on to attend the University of Louisiana in Lafayette where she received dual degrees.  One Bachelor of Science majoring in Biology and minoring in Micro-Biology and the other majoring in Chemistry and minoring in Biochemistry. Recognizing and experiencing first-hand the limited availability of healthcare in under-served communities she set her sights on becoming a dentists.  She enrolled in the Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry where she was awarded a Doctorate of Dentistry in 2019. During her time at Meharry she was on the Dean's List multiple times and received the prestigious honor of becoming a member of the Omnicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Society elected from the top 20% of her graduating class. For April dentistry combines all the important things she learned during her early childhood: education, social interaction and emotional intelligence can be used in a way to create joy and bring about a change.
