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 for several years.  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, walking our family dog and am a yoga devotee.

I look forward to meeting you and can’t wait for you to experience our commitment, passion and service.



Dental Hygienist

Hello, my name is Eileen.  I have been a Dental Hygienist in this office since 2003.  This is a wonderful office in which to work and be a patient. Dr. Pershing is an excellent dentist and a kind, genuine person.  Everyone in this office is dedicated to excellent patient care.  Patients often tell us how welcome they feel here as we treat everyone as individuals, make them feel comfortable, and truly care about them.

Before becoming a hygienist I was a flight attendant for Continental Airlines for 14 years.  After taking an early retirement to stay home with my young kids I wanted a career that would allow me to work part-time and still enjoy my family.  Dental hygiene is a perfect fit for me.  I love people, and I am thrilled to be a part of their lives as I help them achieve optimal oral health.

I grew up in Southern California, and I have also lived in Colorado and Texas before settling here in Tucson.  I am married, have two grown children, and two dogs.  I love to spend time with my family and friends.  I enjoy the outdoors, music, reading, exercising and traveling.

I look forward to meeting you. 


Dental Hygienist

Hi! I’m Lorraine, a Registered Dental Hygienist.  I’m so happy to be working with Dr. Pershing and his incredible team of dental professionals.  Dental hygiene is a second career for me and a great fit.  I enjoy the individual care of patients and working with them to help establish and maintain good oral health. 

My husband and I are originally from Minnesota, but have lived in California, Oregon and for the past 16 years Indiana.  I received my degree from the Indiana University School of Dentistry nine years ago.  We’re excited to make Tucson our home and already love the beauty of this area.

We enjoy the cheap entertainment of our three cats, biking, reading, and going out to see a variety of musical and theatrical performances.  I’m also a professional artist and have been painting in oils for over 20 years.  It is my passion and I love the balance between painting in my studio and working at Dr. Pershing’s.  Welcome!






Dr. Adam Pershing is committed to excellence in every aspect of his life...and those around him cannot help but be positively affected by his dedication to it.
