Chyrelle Blount, DDS

Dr. Chyrelle Blount graduated in 1997 from Loma Linda University. It was there that she gained her starting knowledge, skills and techniques to treat patients with a whole-person care perspective in dentistry.

In her 25 years of experience, she has been able to work with children, adults and sedation patients. She utilizes continuing education by seeking to evolve her skills through new discoveries and techniques in dental research.

Dr. Blount’s love for health care was first influenced by her father, who attended medical school in Mexico, which is where she learned to speak her second language (Spanish).
