Dr. Pam has been in healthcare since the late 1970s. She practiced as a Registered Nurse primarily in the Emergency Department, for thirteen years. After receiving a Masters Degree in Business and climbing the ladder into hospital administration, she realized that her passion was with direct patient care and not behind a desk. She returned to school and received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1996. She began a solo practice in Richardson and then bought two practices in Plano. She combined all three practices and provided care in Plano through 2009.
Dr. Pam taught Oral Surgery at Baylor College of Dentistry between 1996 and 2007. She enjoyed playing a part in the clinical education of third and fourth year dental students as they prepared to graduate. She also has served as a mentor to dental students, helping them earn credit while observing in her private practice. It assisted them as they prepared to transition into their own careers and provided an opportunity to observe the business aspects of a dental practice, as well as procedures. Dr Pam serves as a clinical site for the Grayson County College dental assisting program and serves as clinical faculty for rhe radiology portion of their training.
In 2007, Dr. Pam moved to Lake Texoma in semi-retirement to be close to the boat she has had on the lake since 2000. Soon after moving, it became evident that there was a need for a dentist in Pottsboro. Within a few months, she made the commitment to start a brand new practice in Pottsboro. When not in the office, you can find Dr. Pam out on the lake. Occasional travel is also one of her passions, usually to tropical destinations. While at home, Dr. Pam enjoys cooking and spending quiet evenings with her dogs.
