Dr. Ducharme's parents immigrated to the US from Czechoslovakia shortly before she was born, and raised a family of six children. Raised in humble circumstances, they were taught the values of hard work and caring for others. These values are reflected in her patient care and her desire to make her patients and community feel like family.
She completed her residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where she was named Resident of the Year and won the Outstanding Patient Care Award. Dr. Ducharme studied Biology and Chemistry at California State University, Fresno, and graduated at the top of her class at the University of Southern California's Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry.
She stayed very busy during her years at school, working part-time jobs as a restaurant server, and participating on the dance and cheer teams. However, her favorite activity was teaching elementary school students about oral hygiene. Dr. Ducharme loves spending time with her supportive husband Max and plans to add a golden retriever to their family.
She enjoys exploring different cultures, traveling, skiing, and spending time on the Florida waters. She is honored to be a part of the Palm Beach community and is grateful for the opportunity to make a positive impact on her patients' lives.
