Get to Know
Your Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Leigh Weldon

Doctor Weldon and his family

With well over a decade of experience in the dental field, Dr. Leigh Weldon loves being able to help children improve and keep their teeth in pristine condition as they grow. As a mother of two boys, she understands the importance and maintaining your little one’s oral health as well as nurturing their confidence in their pearly whites in a fun and compassionate environment. With her years as a pediatric dentist, she looks forward to building a positive relationship with patients while helping them create a smile they can be proud of!

Why Did You
Want to Become
a Pediatric Dentist?

Dr. Leigh Weldon decided to pursue a career in pediatric dentistry during her work abroad in Sliven, Bulgaria. While there as a dental student, she had the opportunity to spend ten days assisting a pediatric dentist as she treated the Romani children in the region. During this time, she witnessed how effectively the doctor was able to calm, encourage, and connect with the little ones—even though there was a language barrier! This inspired Dr. Weldon to learn more about the specialty of pediatrics, and the rest is history.

Study Dentistry?

After graduating from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!), Dr. Leigh pursued her doctorate at The Dental College of Georgia at Augusta University.

As part of her training, she split time between the hospitals and clinics of The Dental College of Georgia and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA). With 12 years of private practice experience, Dr. Leigh is both a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

Outside of the Dental
Office, What Do You
Like to Do?

Born and raised in Rome, GA, Dr. Leigh Weldon loves to spend time with her husband, Dr. Ryan Weldon, and their two boys—one of which likes reading and robotics while the other enjoys sports and making things with his hands. She also enjoys working out with friends at Rome Strength and Fitness, drinking coffee at Swift and Finch, walking along local river trails, and serving as a deacon at the First Baptist Church of Rome. Recently, she’s taken up piano lessons and finds it very fun and challenging. One fun fact about her: she will forever love 90’s/2000’s hip hop music!
