Dr. Paula L. Needham, D.M.D.

Dr. Paula Lobo Needham was born and raised in Northbrook and is so happy to return home to serve the North Shore community.  She attended Tufts University in Boston, MA for college and dental school.  After earning her D.M.D degree, she completed a 1 year General Practice Residency in Maywood, IL at Loyola Medical Center where she first fell in love with the pediatric population and working with children with special health care needs.  She completed her Pediatric Dental Residency at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA.

Dr. Paula lives locally with her husband Rob and two sons, Ryan and Miles. They also have two rescue dogs, Wylie Coyote and Wrigley, who was named after her favorite baseball team! You’ll
probably run into her playing at the park with the family or at Target!

She is board certified and a Diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, a member of the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, and the Chicago Dental Society.
