Pam RuDusky, Registered Dental Hygienist

Pam graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania and has been practicing since 1985. 

She started her professional career in dentistry in Phoenix Arizona. But, after 5 years she decided she needed a change in climate and moved to California. There she met Doctor Oh and ended up working by his side for over 10 years. 

Pam enjoys her career as a Dental hygienist because it helps people have a clean- healthy mouth, improved general health, along with a happy smile. She wakes up every morning looking forward to meeting new patients and helping them with all their dental health needs. 

Pam coincidentally decided to make the move back to Arizona around the same time Doctor Oh moved here.  She feels thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Oh again.  She has always admired his work ethic and skill set for helping people with their oral health concerns. Not to mention, she loves being back in Sunny Arizona where Pam and her husband Daryl enjoy hiking and bike riding. Also, in her free time she enjoys swimming and gardening in the warm weather.
