Meet Dr. Lam
Dennis Lam, DDS, MS FRCD(C), Diplomate, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
Dr. Dennis W. Lam was born and bred in the thriving metropolis north of the border, Toronto, Canada. His early education took place in Canada. Dr. Lam completed his Bachelors degree in Toxicology at the University of Toronto. From there, he studied at Queens University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada where he completed his Masters degree in Pharmacology. At this time, although he had thoughts of continuing on the path of the pure academic, Dr. Lam decided against the pursuit of a Ph.D and opted instead to pursue dentistry. Traveling to New York City, Dr. Lam embarked on his exciting (yet equally long) endeavor into the wonderful world of dentistry.
Dr. Lam is a member of a very select group of internationally board-certified pediatric dentists.
Dr. Lam completed his dental education at Columbia University in New York. From there, he proceeded to Brooklyn, NY where he completed a General Practice Residency at New York Methodist Hospital. His tour of New York continued as he subsequently completed specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center, Bronx, NY. For about five years Dr. Lam would call Westchester, NY home. However, work would take him across the Hudson River.
Bypassing the remaining boroughs of Queens and Staten Island, Dr. Lam headed to New Jersey where for the past several years, he has worked in private practice. Today, Dr. Lam is a member of a very select group of internationally board-certified pediatric dentists. Dr. Lam is a board-certified Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, as well as a board-certified Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada. Additionally, Dr. Lam holds hospital staff privileges at JFK Memorial Hospital and the Atlantic Health Network at Morristown Memorial Hospital. Dr. Lam also maintains active membership with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the New Jersey Dental Association (NJDA)
Contrary to popular belief, Dr. Lam does find time to enjoy himself outside of his work and studies! As a native Canuck, Dr. Lam has retained an avid love for the game of hockey and tries to get on the ice to play recreational hockey whenever possible. (NOTE: Dr. Lam ALWAYS wears a protective mouthguard when playing hockey!) An amateur jazz and classical pianist and an avid lover of jazz music, Dr. Lam often jumps at the opportunity to attend the many great jazz and classical music venues in New York/New Jersey area.
