Pam was born in the Aloha state of Hawaii on the island of Oahu. After graduating from the University of Hawaii she left the land of waterfalls and trade winds and moved to Arizona in 1977.After working in a general dental practice in Chandler she applied for a dental hygienist position at Dr. Longfellow's first office on Lakeshore Drive in Tempe. Pam majored in elementary education before switching to dental hygiene. "What a rewarding experience it has been to work in a children's dental practice. I am, after all, still teaching and learning at Children's Dental Village. The owners encourage the staff to educate themselves by providing us with continuing education opportunities." Pam provides tender loving care for children and grandchildren of the first patients she saw in 1979.
When she is not in the office Pam spends her time with family, traveling and participating in several philanthropic endeavors including Mission of Mercy, ACT Kids Health Fair, Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer events and office-sponsored community outreach programs.

Beginning Thursday, March 19th and continuing until further notice, Children’s Dental Village will be incorporating restrictions on non-essential and non-emergent patient care. If your child is currently scheduled for a routine cleaning, a member of our team will reach out to you to reschedule.
We do not take this decision lightly and want to reassure our families thatwe will be available for all dental emergencies as always. If your child is experiencing a dental emergency please call the office and follow the prompts to be connected with the doctor on call.
We regret that we must restrict our patient care, but are serving our patients in the safest manner possible by following the advice of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under these difficult circumstances. In doing so, we will safeguard the health and safety of our patients, our care providers, and the whole community. We hope you understand, and we thank you for your cooperation.
