Leah Tekle, DMD

Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health


My dentist was very good when I was growing up, and I always thought it was really interesting – so I wanted to be a dentist since I was little. Getting to know patients and working with people is what made me interested in healthcare, I wanted to have an open connection with people. When I was a Dental student, I came to Mountain Park and I just loved their approach to healthcare. Everyone worked together, and the amount of team work displayed was always good to see – that’s why I came back.

I’m married, with one daughter, and I come from a big family of 6 girls. During my free time, I like to watch football, spend time with my daughter and husband, and explore different foods. Most people don’t know that I like cheesy jokes, the funnier the better.
