ADAM R. PERSHING, DMD
Ever since childhood I have wanted to be a dentist. It is the perfect career for me because it combines science, problem solving, workmanship and communication. I have always enjoyed working with my hands and developing relationships with people. My degree in Engineering from Arizona State provided a valuable foundation for my Dental Education at Southern Illinois University, where I excelled in diagnosis, patient care, and won several awards for publishing my dental research.
My career as a dentist began in the United States Navy. During my first year in the Navy I completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency while serving at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot on Parris Island, South Carolina. Later I served at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan as a Dental officer treating our fighting men and women in uniform and their families. It is an experience I hold dear and one that I wouldn’t trade for anything.
When it came time to begin private practice, I returned to my hometown of Tucson where I joined Dr. Howard Adams in 2007. Through Dr. Adams I was introduced to the Kois Center, an institution for advanced dental studies in Seattle, WA. Dr. Adams and the Kois Center have expanded my knowledge and abilities by applying a systematic approach to dentistry. As a graduate of the Kois Center I am able to provide very effective predictable treatment ranging from routine fillings to full mouth reconstructions and complex cosmetic and implant-based cases.
I am a proud graduate of Lineweaver Elementary, Alice Vail Middle School and Tucson High. My wife Jen and I have our four sons: Sam, Johnny, Tommy, and Ben. They keep us busy and happy.
I am dedicated to providing an accurate diagnosis and exceptional treatment. I take pride in providing considerate, individualized care, and I stand behind my work. I look forward to getting to know you, listening to your needs and providing you excellence with the best possible dental care.
Business Office Manager
Hello! My name is Susan and I have been Dr. Pershing’s Business Office Manager since 2012. I love my job and being able to work with a stellar team. I was a patient of this office for 15 years when Dr. Pershing, knowing of my administrative background, offered me my current position. I accepted with full confidence having experienced first- hand the exceptional care Dr. Pershing gives his patients.
I am a native Californian who has made Arizona my adopted home. My husband and I have raised our beautiful family in Tucson. We make frequent trips to California to visit with family and to get my ocean fix.
I enjoy gardening, reading in my hammock, hiking, biking, and am a yoga devotee.
I look forward to meeting you and can’t wait for you to experience our commitment, passion and service.
I have been with Dr. Pershing and his great staff since 2015. I value the shared goal of putting the patient first. I enjoy working with each patient to find their best path forward to establish or maintain oral health. Outside of work I love spending time with my husband of over 30 years, our cats, and painting. I’m also a professional artist. I usually have a painting or two up in the operatory.
