Promising Practices in Aging & Oral Health: Meet Alan from Oklahoma

Dr. Alan McDonald, D.D.S, NSO Dental Director, was born in Tennessee and eventually relocated to Oklahoma in 1971.  He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Oklahoma in 1983.  His aspiration to become a dentist sprang from his childhood when he had to get braces, he saw all the tools they used and thought it looked very interesting.

Dr. McDonald has been the recipient of the Fred Seids Periodontal Department Award in 1993 and the Oklahoma Department of Corrections NABCJ Community Service Award in 2002.   When asked what his favorite part about working at NSO was he said, “It’s such a positive experience working with NSO’s dental team and being able to give back to my community.”

Dr. McDonald loves to spend time with his grandchildren, playing golf and traveling in his free time.
