Pediatric Dentistry

Our Dental Team

Seth Ardoin, D.D.S.

Dr. Seth attended the University of Texas Dental School in San Antonio, receiving his Doctorate in Dental Surgery in 2008. He went on to complete his residency training in Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Texas Dental School in San Antonio and became certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2011. Dr. Seth is trained in all aspects of Pediatric Dentistry.
While dedicating his professional career to children’s oral health, Dr. Seth is a man for all seasons. Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, he attended Eastwood High School where he was heavily involved in sports, playing football, basketball, and baseball. As a biology major at McMurry University, he continued to play baseball and help the Indians (now War Hawks) win two American Southwest Conference championships (2001, 2004). In 2004 Dr. Seth was 1st-team Academic All-American catcher and male Scholar Athlete of the Year for McMurry University and for the American Southwest Conference.

These days you’ll find Dr. Seth spending time with his dad (a retired high school head football coach of 30 years) on the sidelines of Friday night football games in the Big Country, from 6A to 1A. During dove season, he’s often perched next to a tank or sunflower field trying to get his limit. Otherwise, Dr. Seth is trying to break 100 on the golf course, supporting his beloved Los Angeles Angels® of Anaheim (even though he lives well behind the enemy lines of the Texas Rangers®), and most often enjoying time with his wife and family.

Dr. Seth is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and in the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

Adam Coley, D.D.S.

Dr. Adam was born in Dallas, Texas, but grew up primarily in the Brownwood area, graduating from Early High School. He attended Tarleton State University and completed his undergraduate degree in biology. He went on to the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio where he earned the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2011.

After graduation Dr. Adam moved back to the Brownwood area and joined a general dentistry practice for two years. Finding his calling to serve children, Dr. Adam started practicing part time at APDA before joining the practice full time in July of 2013. He has loved every minute since then.

Dr. Adam holds certifications for oral conscious sedation, he has extensive experience with advanced behavior modification, and he has received a certification in Pediatric Advanced Life Support.

While attending dental school, Dr. Adam met the love of his life, Lacie, who “wandered into his back yard randomly,” he says. They have two daughters, Dylan and Chase, and enjoy spending time as a family RV’ing across the state.

Paul R. Lambert III, D.M.D., M.B.A./M.H.A.

As a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Paul is dedicated to continuing education, evidence-based practices, and adherence to the AAPD Guidelines. His personal philosophy is to develop a relationship that leads to patients establishing a dental home so that each visit can be fun, educational, and prevention focused. He is a board-certified pediatric dentist.

Dr. Paul was born in Los Angeles, CA, grew up in Charlottesville, VA, attended James Madison University, and then moved to Charleston, SC. After college, his first job was working as a graduate assistant basketball coach at The Citadel, where he completed two Master’s degrees (Business & Health Administration). In grad school he also helped conduct and write two dental research projects at The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) that were published. Most importantly, during this time, he met and married Erika.

He attended MUSC for dental school where he learned general dentistry, rotated through all the sub-specialties, and earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.). After dental school, he focused his education on pediatric dentistry by completing a Pediatric Fellowship at THE Ohio State University and then further completing his Pediatric Residency at the University of Minnesota. During his last year at Minnesota, he was selected to be chief resident.

Some areas of focus in his pediatric education include behavior guidance and child psychology, pediatric medicine, restorative dentistry, pulp therapy, growth and development, sedation and general anesthesia, hospital dentistry, dental traumatology, clinical orthodontics, cariology and caries management, infant oral health and dental home, pediatric oral pathology, periodontology, infectious disease, practice management, advocacy and education, and the care of children with cleft and craniofacial anomalies.

Dr. Paul joined APDA in 2016. Most days you will find him running around the office like an over-sized kid, telling corny jokes, purposely confusing Disney stories, or rolling around on his skate shoes. He is also credentialed and on staff at Abilene Regional Hospital and Hendrick Medical Center.

Dr. Paul’s wife, Erika, is the Associate Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Abilene Christian University (“Go Wildcats!”). They have two daughters, Ava & Mya. He enjoys basketball, skiing/snowboarding, swimming, biking, and traveling.
