Susan Pearson, D.D.S.

Dr. Pearson focuses her training and education on being a dentist that you and your family can trust. She is known for her caring manner, excellent clinical skills and ability to make patients feel at ease in her dental office.

After graduating with a degree in Natural Resources from the University of Michigan she spent several years in California as a community organizer. Her mother suggested that she was better suited as a dentist. As a good daughter Dr. Pearson decided to give it a try and discovered dentistry was a perfect fit for her. Dr. Pearson graduated from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry in 1982 and moved with her husband to Maryland soon after.


Dr. Pearson is actively involved in the American Dental Association, The Maryland State Dental Association and the Southern Maryland Dental Society. Dr. Pearson is a member and leader of the Greater Academy of Women Dentists, where she was President for two years. She works hard to encourage women to join the dental profession. Dr. Pearson has been inducted into the two prestigious honor societies, Pierre Fauchard Academy and American College of Dentists, by being recognized for her leadership and ethics.


Dr. Pearson’s belief is that every individual deserves access to great dental care led her to the Maryland Foundation for Dentistry for the Handicapped. She is a member of the Board of Directors and has volunteered thousands of hours of dentistry to handicapped individuals, treating them pro bono in her office. In 2005 she travelled to Thailand with a dental mission team, Smile on Wings, to provide care to children in remote villages, most of whom have never seen a dentist before.


Dr. Pearson is a member of DOCS where she has received ongoing training in the use of oral conscious sedation. This is used for patients who are unable to tolerate short or long dental procedures without sedation. These patients are grateful for the gentle care they receive.


Dr. Pearson is a compassionate and understanding dentist who uses current dental treatment and procedures with a gentle touch. Her patients love that she listens to their concerns, needs and fears and then treats them in a proper manner to overcome them. She loves being a dentist and exhibits clinical skills that are second to none. You can rest assured that you are receiving the highest quality treatment available with Dr. Pearson and her team.
