Dr. Heidi Pahls

Dr. Heidi is currently the only Board-certified Pediatric Dentist on the Southern Oregon Coast. After graduating from Loma Linda School of Dentistry near the top of her class in 2005, Dr. Heidi married her dental school sweetheart, Dr. Brent Pahls, during her 1st year of her Pediatric Dentistry residency at Loma Linda University. In 2007, Dr. Heidi completed her 2-year residency in Pediatric dentistry, along with a Master of Sciences degree as well. Dr. Heidi has also completed her Certification examinations and is a current Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

She is the very proud mother of two children, Madeleine (born 4 days after her residency completion!) and Beckett. She feels that her ability to love and her capacity for patience and understanding have grown exponentially since becoming a mother. She also knows that these qualities help her to be even more kind and compassionate with her patients. While she is quick to admit that she had never lived in a small town area before, she is equally quick to share how much she loves Coquille. From the dunes, to the beaches, to the coastal towns, to the farms — there is no comparison to the surpassing beauty of the Oregon coast.

Another of Dr. Heidi’s loves for her community stems from her observations of the genuineness, the kindness and the compassion that the residents of this area feel, not only for their children, but also for one another — qualities and values like these are not as easy to find in larger city environments. She has long appreciated the friendships she has been able to make with her patients and their parents as they share not only a functional role, but a relational one as well.

She thrives on the idea that she will watch these children grow into the wonderful people they are to become, and thoroughly enjoys praising them, encouraging them and nurturing them into all that they can be. With this in mind, there can be no doubt as to how much Dr. Heidi loves her job. She feels blessed that her work allows her the freedom to be energetic, creative and silly. She invests a piece of her heart into every patient and family she meets and looks forward to serving our community to the best of her ability in the years to come.
