Background and Love For Dentistry | Maegan Elam, DDS & Associates

Hi I’m doctor Megan Elam. Welcome to our office. So, I got my start in dentistry because I went to college thinking I wanted to be a veterinarian bur working for a veterinarian I decided it was not for me and so as a senior in college, I had to decide what I was going to do with a biology degree. So, I had a friend who was pretty dental and she kept telling me that I needed to look into it and to come shadow in office and so finally I gave in and I did and I absolutely loved it. So, in the first week being there was awesome, and so i thought why in the world do I like dentistry. So, I grew up playing with power tools essentially with my dad we did a lot of remodelling and so knew how to use. Trails and everything else, and so it just made sense I like to use power tools now. Except now my power tools are teeny tiny and they’re working on teeny tiny teeth.

So I went to college in Abilene, TX at Hardin Simmons university, small private school and then I went down to San Antonio for dental school by in laws are there in so my husband only want to move back up here where I’m from. So that was kind of a compromise. We got to spend about five years down there with his family and the school is a great school so, we were there for five years. Moved back up here and we have been here ever since. When I first got out of school, I knew that I wanted to practice up in the metroplex around where I grew up in south lake and so just looking at practices, I was out of office for about a year and then I decided that I wanted in the private practice sector and so just looking what was available and I met doctor brown who has been here 30 plus years. When I came and did a working interview and I loved it. The employees have been here since he started and then all wonderful. And so I got to know the patients, even just in the first few days and could tell that they were great and so everything worked out really well to come to Bedford. Thanks for watching. We look forward to seeing you soon in our office.

Well, I’ve been coming to this dentist office for right at about 10 years, and when it was another dentist and then the Doctor Elam was here as well and I just gradually started seeing Doctor Elam And we just kind of made a connection and, you know, You can come here and get your teeth cleaned and you can watch some HDTV or some Travel Channel, and it’s kind of nice. It’s such a great office and it’s very Convenient. I never Have to like Call my insurance. Say Sherry, you will always call for me and let me know that Trisha, they’re going to pay this much for you know you and several times they’ve sent me money back because the insurance paid more than they had originally quoted. So, I mean, that is just another way that that I just know how honest they are And I can really just trustworthy. Which I appreciate, because you could go to a dentist and if you don’t know what really what’s going on and you trust them, they could be telling you, oh, you need a root canal and a crown. You need this, you need that, but they don’t do that. They tell you exactly what you need, and that’s important, you know, financially that’s an important thing. I love that my whole family comes here. It is, I don’t have to. You know, when you’re a mom, you always have to make sure everybody has the Appointments, right? But nope. I can come here. I can put it in my phone. I still come in with my youngest son, who’s almost 22, and we usually come at the same time, so I can make sure he’s got his dental and I don’t have to have that. Mama worry. And I love the ladies up here, you know, everybody just makes you feel like you’re at home, And definitely if you don’t have a dentist, I would say, You know, come to Doctor Elam. Come here. They’re going to. They’re going to get you in. They’re going to make sure you’re comfortable. If you have an emergency or something’s really painful, they’re really going to they’re going to fit you in. They’re going to they’re not, going to let you sit and wait coming here is just it’s right down the street from where I work where I live. Even if it wasn’t, I would definitely make sure I still came here if I moved, or if I, you know, got a job at another school, because they care about me and they care about my family. They take great care of us, you know, you leave with happy clean teeth. That’s a good feeling.

So, we will encourage moms that they can bring their kids with anything to you. So, there are days where we have kids sleeping on mom’s chest to your way back, getting your teeth cleaned or in my operatory, I’ve had, you know, my friends come in and their kids are in their corner and they’re asking questions, and they always want to see inside of their mommies Mouths and say What are you doing to my mommy? So we try explaining and we just love on them, but we, we, want to be able to see the whole entire family. So, from little kids all the way through, Mom, Dad, you know, as their patient grows That’s and they’re changing from their primary teeth to baby teeth to their permanent teeth.
