I grew up in Denton actually next door to our current office. I graduated from North Caroline High School and am an Eagle Scout. I was privileged to attend the Boy Scout XIII World Jamboree in Japan and was able to climb Mt. Fuji. I graduated from the University of MD College Park and then the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. Dr. Higgins and I were married the day after we graduated from dental school. I completed a general practice residency program at the Wilmington Medical Center in Wilmington Delaware. We have 2 daughters Rebecca who is a Physical Therapist at the Kennedy-Krieger Institute in Baltimore and Allison who is a pharmaceutical marketer living in Manhattan. I have served on the Human Services Council in Caroline County, the Board of Zoning Appeals, been a past president of the Denton Rotary and also the Treasurer of the Eastern Shore Dental Society and the Denton Church of Brethren. I have been the Dental Lead of the Easter Shore Dental Mission of Mercy continuously since 2012. I love dentistry and learning new things. I believe that once we believe in our minds, we can accomplish in our lives.

Dr. Patricia E. Higgins

Family is important to me. I am an Army Brat. My father was a career Army Officer. I love being a part of a big family. I have 4 older sisters and a younger brother. It was quite a culture shock for Rowland when he married into my big, loud Irish-Italian family. Rowland and I met in dental school. We married the day after we graduated. We both did residencies and later, associate-ships. When we were starting our family, it was time to build our own practice and plant roots for our future. What better place than Denton, where Roland’s family had lived for more than 100 years. We have two grown daughters who worked in the dental office before and after school while they were growing up. They both had different callings, and we are proud of their accomplishments. I love Dentistry. I love being part of someone’s life journey. I know the power of changing smiles and changing lives. I am active in the MSDA to help mold Dentistry’s future. When I’m not in the office I love traveling, visiting family and friends, history, photography and other artsy stuff and believe it or not, scuba.
