Dr. John A. Colgan, Jr.

Dr. John A. Colgan - Pediatric Dentist in Paducah, KY

My name is Dr. John Colgan Jr. I am a Paducah native and feel so blessed to be able to provide pediatric dental care to the children of my hometown.

After graduating from Saint Mary High School, I attended Murray State University and majored in biology and chemistry. From there, I attended the University of Louisville School of Dentistry where I received my DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree in 2012. I was then accepted into the NYU/Lutheran Pediatric Dental Residency program, the Hawaii site, where I received my certificate in Pediatric Dentistry in 2015.

My goal at Colgan Pediatric Dentistry is to make coming to the dentist the most positive experience for both the child and the parent. Taking your child to the dentist for the first time or for their first filling is already a stressful situation and it is my goal to make it as positive of an experience as it can be. I strive to stay current on the most recent techniques and practices of modern day pediatric dentistry recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

I am a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, and the Purchase Dental Society. I stay active in the community as a member of the Paducah Chamber of Commerce and my local church.

In my free time, I enjoy relaxing on Kentucky Lake, fishing, hiking, and biking in Land Between the Lakes. I also enjoy deer, duck, and turkey hunting.
