Dr. Pasch knew that she wanted to be a dentist since she was five years old. Her interest in dentistry was solidified when she shadowed in the office of a retired US Navy Captain as an undergraduate at Michigan State University. This experience also introduced her to scholarship opportunities with the US military; and, as a result, Dr. Pasch was a recipient of the competitive US Navy Health Professions Scholarship Program for all four years at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA.

After graduating from dental school in 2013, Dr. Pasch completed five years of service in the Navy as a Lieutenant and Dental Officer. Her first year was spent at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island in Beaufort, SC. She was the only dentist onboard the ship USS SAN ANTONIO in Norfolk, VA for two years. She then finished her career at Naval Station Great Lakes in North Chicago, IL before moving to Nashville.

Dr. Pasch’s favorite aspect of dentistry is having the opportunity to meet patients from all walks of life and maintain ongoing relationships with them. She also enjoys making a positive impact on a person’s oral health and self-confidence through patient education and improving smiles. She was initially drawn to Triax Dental because of the opportunity to learn advanced dentistry and to work with a very deserving patient base that often has challenges accessing dental care. She knew that working with the team at Triax would be a remarkable experience because each person displays enthusiasm for providing the highest standard of care to all patients.

When she’s not practicing dentistry, Dr. Pasch enjoys traveling as much as she can, listening to all types of live music, spending time with her very close extended family in Nashville and Michigan, and loving her lazy rescue greyhound, Dora. Her husband, Ryan, is completing his medical residency in Pathology at Vanderbilt University.
