Dr. Patricia McKie
"A smile is the only language that everyone understands."
Dr. Patricia McKie was born and raised in northwest Indiana. She received her Bachelor of Science in General Health Sciences at Purdue University, West Lafayette and her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Indiana University School of Dentistry. After dental school, Dr. McKie practiced for 2 years in Indiana and a year in Hawaii before settling in the Florida panhandle. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. McKie decided to pursue dentistry after shadowing her childhood dentist and other dentists in her hometown while in high school. She admired the relationships that the dentists developed with patients and their families and was amazed at a dentist's ability to make patients feel more confident in themselves. Dr. McKie has long believed that a smile is the only language that everyone understands and dentistry allows her to play a crucial role in giving people a smile they can be proud of.
Dr. McKie currently lives in Pace, Florida with her husband. In her free time, she enjoys reading, spending time with family and friends, and most recently, scrapbooking. She and her husband also enjoy cheering on the Purdue Boilermakers!
