Dr Malcolm J Boykin DDS - Ramona Dentist
Malcolm Boykin, DDS

My name is Malcolm Boykin, and I am overjoyed that Dr. Hill has entrusted me with the privilege of taking care of you. I was raised here in California, attended Cal Poly at San Luis Obispo and the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry. I have been practicing for over 20 years. I am married and have a 9-year-old son, and a new daughter who is not quite two. I met my wife and had my son in Germany, where I practiced with the military for the last 11 years. I returned with my family to the San Diego area because it is where I call home. I want to thank all of the people I have met while here in the office for being so warm and welcoming. I couldn’t imagine a better community in which to practice dentistry. I am thrilled that the talented and caring team you all have gotten to know over so many years have all agreed to stay on to continue providing excellent care. Please call Candi, Patty, Mary, or Kelly to schedule an appointment. I look forward to meeting each one of you. It will be a privilege to serve you.Warmest Regards,
Dr. Boykin
