Meet The Team

  • Colleen Lam, DMD
    General Dentist

    Dr. Colleen Lam, native from New York City, received her doctorate degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine after completing her undergraduate education at Temple University. As a student at Tufts University, she trained extensively with the pediatric dental team at St Joseph’s Specialty Care Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island providing comprehensive care to children in under served communities.

    In 2011 Dr. Lam moved to New Haven, Connecticut to complete a general practice residency at Yale New Haven Hospital. Her time at Yale allowed her to become proficient in treating those with complex medical conditions and special needs while working closely with medical teams. Aside from hospital dentistry and oral medicine, Dr. Lam enhanced her clinical skills in all aspects of general dentistry including, but not limited to, implant dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and complex prosthodontic restorations. Working with award winning specialists from different fields of dentistry provided her with confidence to provide a wide range of services to her patients and improving their quality of life.

    Since the completion of her residency, Dr. Lam had the opportunity to serve the shoreline community of Connecticut where she provided comprehensive care for patients of all ages. After a few years, she decided to move closer to family in Florida where she joined Dental Arts of Atlantis. Dr. Lam has continually enhanced her knowledge by completing hundreds of hours of continuing education per year. She is regularly taking advanced courses to expand her skills to provide the best care and options to her patients.

    When Dr. Lam is not practicing dentistry, she enjoys traveling, photography, and remaining physically active by surfing, running, and cycling. On her days off, you will find her out and about with her toy poodle Mr. Mochi.

    “As a child, I had a terrible experience which turned me into a nightmare patient. It took only one doctor that treated me like a family to make my dental phobia disappear. Since then, I knew I wanted to be a dentist. I knew I wanted to be that “one” to change someone’s life by providing with the best care they deserve painlessly and safely.”

  • Ariana Boetius-Gosney, RDH
    Dental Hygienist

    Ariana is our head hygienist and has been in the field of dentistry over ten years. She started her career as a dental assistant for four years. The experience and knowledge she gained greatly helped her as she continued on as a dental hygienist.

    She received her Associate in Science degree in dental hygiene locally at Palm Beach State College and hopes to complete her Bachelor of Health Science degree from Nova Southeastern University. She has also continued her education with advanced training courses in local anesthesia.

    The thing Ariana enjoys most about being a dental hygienist is the relationships she builds with her patients. There is nothing more rewarding than to see a patient who was at first very anxious about dental treatment grow more and more comfortable and overcome their fears. It is also very satisfying to see the progress patients can make when they make a commitment to their dental health. Her philosophy is to provide the best possible treatment for each individual while being gentle and thorough.

    When she is away from the dental office Ariana enjoys gardening, writing, and spending time with her husband and family. If you haven’t met Ariana yet, you should!
