Meet Dr. Fred Walters

Since beginning my career at Laurel Oaks Dental Care over 20 years ago, I have greatly enjoyed seeing the transformations that occur in my patients after their procedures and treatments. Seeing someone beam with confidence after seeing their new smile is always a rewarding and gratifying experience. Practicing dentistry is one of my greatest pleasures in that it allows me to combine my talents, art and the science of dentistry.


I enjoy the gifts and talents I have, as well as all the gifted team members I have the pleasure to work with on a daily basis. Working with so many unique people affects my life in more ways than I could have imagined. We are fortunate to have a well-rounded and skilled team who can offer the best dental care to our community. Our team cares deeply for one another and takes pride in delivering high-quality care and service to patients

It is wonderful to meet a variety of people and help them to maintain their overall health, as well as oral health. I truly care about each individual I treat and cherish the personal relationships I have cultivated over the years. I am most passionate about treating each patient who walks through our doors as a unique individual, with the same level of care and compassion I would expect for myself and my family. Since I like being able to fix problems, I love being able to restore unhealthy mouths and keeping healthy ones in tip-top shape.


Our patients deserve nothing but the best, and in order to provide the highest quality of care for them, I stay up-to-date on the newest, most advanced technology and treatment options available in dentistry. I take many hours of continuing education on an annual basis in an effort to provide a full range of dental services. I am a proud member of the American Dental Association and Mississippi Dental Association. I obtained my undergraduate degree at the University of Southern Mississippi and subsequently completed my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Tennessee’s College of Dentistry.

Outside the Office

A native of Petal, MS, I reside in Laurel with my wife, Ginger and two sons, Sam and Charlie. When I’m not working to help my patients realize the smile they’ve always wanted, I enjoy golfing and reading.

I am passionate about freedom to enjoy family, life, and serving my neighbor, and also believe strongly in giving back to my community.
