Patricia A London DDS

Catch her if you can!  When Dr. Pat is not creating beautiful smiles for our fantastic patients, she is probably traveling with her family, enjoying being Granna to her four grandchildren, entertaining herself with a video game or reading the latest novel.

Her oldest son, Jonathan, is a graduate of Dr. Pat's alma-mater, UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in communications.  He is employed at INSP as a video producer and editor.  Jonathan is married to Haley, also a UNC grad, and they live in Matthews.  Haley is employed at Carolinas Healthcare System as a Corporate Privacy Investigator . They are the proud parents of Lawson James, born on Mother's Day 2011 and Sawyer Gray who arrived in June of 2014. These boys love to go to museums and Dr. Pat is right there with them!

Her middle child, Drew, and his wife, Abby, live in Charlotte. Drew graduated from NC State with degrees in Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering and is also employed by Carolinas Healthcare System.  He holds a Masters Degree from Northwestern in Predictive Analytics.  Abby is also a graduate of NC State and is employed by Wells Fargo as a communications consultant.  They are the parents of Dr. Pat's beautiful, curly headed grand-daughter, Havilland Ruby.  Dr. Pat loves spending time with and spoiling her favorite little girl!

Lauren, the baby of the family and Dr. Pat's only daughter, is a graduate of NC State as well with a degree in Communications and Public Relations.  Lauren's husband, Chad, is a fellow Tarheel!  Lauren and Chad live in Huntersville.  Lauren is Director of Operations for vestique, a chain of clothing boutiques.  Although Lauren is primarily at the Charlotte, NC and Greenville, SC locations, vestique can also be found in Cary, Raleigh, Columbia, Charleston and online!  Chad, a former UNC baseball player, is a partner at Main Street Financial.  He is a fourth generation partner with the company.  Their son Charles Z. Flack V (Channing) was born in June.  Happiest little fella you would ever want to meet.  They are also parents to the Flack Pack of three delightful dogs!

A native of Kannapolis, NC, Dr. Pat received her undergraduate degree in Zoology from NC State University.  She attended dental school at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated in 1981.  While at UNC, Dr. Pat earned the prestigious Pfeiffer Research Fellowship and was the only student member of the Endodontics teaching staff.  She was also a member of the Admissions Committee and received Senior awards in Pediatrics and Endodontics.  Dr. Pat still enjoys mentoring aspiring dentists, and offers internships to local high school students.  She also awards an annual scholarship to a student furthering their education in a dental-related field. 

Dr. Pat opened her office on Church Street in Concord in 1982 and has never moved!  The office receives regular face-lifts and Dr. Pat plans on staying right here for many more years!  She prides herself on staying current and is a technology buff.

Every year, Dr. Pat furthers her education and takes numerous courses to provide our patients with the latest in dental technology.  Dr. Pat enjoys staying active in the dental community.  She is a member of the ADA, NCDS, Cabarrus Dental Society, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry and the American Association of Women Dentists.

She loves sharing her dental knowledge and making a difference in the lives of our patients! She proudly has been named to Charlotte's Best Dentists by her peers every year since it's inception and was recently awarded the honor of being chosen as one of America's Best Dentists.
