drtonidds toni-ann hylton mayembe Jacksonville Florida dentistHey there! I’m Dr Toni.


I am so glad you are here! I am Toni-Ann Hylton Mayembe.  I am Lieutenant Mayembe to my fellow sailors, Dr Hylton to my patients, Toni to my friends and family and Mommy to my two little guys.  

I understand as a mother how difficult it can be to juggle work and family. My goal here is to help mom’s achieve optimal oral health for themselves and the entire family.

 I know that my mission in life is to help others.  I am able to do that through dentistry.  Being a dentist and helping improve oral health and smiles is my passion.

Around the time I had my second son, I had this itch that I wanted to do something different in my life.  The idea for this blog began around the time I started a series on Instagram on What Not to Say to Your Child.

Time after time, I have seen mother’s coming to the dental office frustrated with their kids that don’t brush their teeth and husbands that hate the dentist (and acting like the kids when they come in).  Then, the deer in the head lights look when they look at the bill to fix all of their kid’s cavities.  

I want to change this by getting information and tools in the hands of all moms so that going to the dentist is something the entire family is looking forward to.

On my blog you will find information and tools to having the best check up at the dentist, as well as answers to questions you may have about your child’s teeth. I also started another blog, Real Happy Mom, that has a wide variety of topics including motherhood, marriage and of course teeth.

Fun facts:

When I was younger I wanted to be an advisor to the President of the United States on Environmental Affairs.  

I LOVE WWE.  I get on my husband’s nerves every time we watch WWE because I am always making too much noise… it’s hard to be quiet and watch WWE.  🙂

My favorite color is green and could eat Mexican food every day.  I don’t mind cleaning the kitchen, but I hate folding clothes.
