Dr. Colleen Randall and Dr. Pamela Gibson both earned their Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, where they established the foundation for their careers. Prior to purchasing Southport Family Dental, Dr. Randall practiced as an associate in Cheshire, and Dr. Gibson practiced in Fairfield County. The doctors always shared common values, but most importantly they shared a common treatment philosophy – comprehensive dental care built on trust, compassion, and undivided attention. Knowing they could make a difference together in the dental community, the two doctors partnered in the fall of 2019 to provide compassionate care for patients in Southport and across Fairfield County.


Dr. Colleen Randall

My practice approach is to make every patient feel comfortable and heard. I encourage open communication in a trusting environment so I can cater dental treatment to each individual’s needs and preferences. Lifelong relationships are at the heart of my practice, while optimizing oral health and cosmetics along the way.

Colleen (Caulfield) Randall, DMD, attended Boston University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering. Upon completion of her undergraduate studies, she attended the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine and earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree in 2011. Dr. Randall then went on to complete a general practice residency at Hartford Hospital.

Dr. Randall resides in Redding with her husband and three young children. She enjoys hiking with her dogs and weekend trips to Cape Cod with family.


Dr. Pamela Gibson

Dentistry provides the ability to blend art and science together in a truly rewarding way. No two smiles are the same and I love the ability to customize treatment plans for each patient. My goal is to build healthy smiles that make my patients feel comfortable and proud, and to create lifelong relationships with my patients. To me, my practice is my second home and I strive to make my patients feel at ease from the moment they arrive. In fact, the biggest compliment a patient can give is to feel so relaxed that they fall asleep in my chair.

Dr. Pamela (Karkut) Gibson, DMD, attended the University of Connecticut where she graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in molecular and cell biology. Upon completion of her undergraduate studies, she continued at UCONN’s School of Dental Medicine and earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree in 2013. Dr. Gibson completed a general practice residency at Danbury Hospital.
