Dennis Oakes, PA-C

Dennis Oakes joined Lassen Medical Clinic in 2017, bringing with him nearly four decades of physician assistant experience. He began his medical career in the U.S. Air Force in 1976, working in General Medicine, Emergency Rooms and Family Practice.

From 1987 to 1992, Dennis served as an instructor at Aristotle College in Indianapolis, where he was responsible for planning, organizing and instructing in all aspects of office medical assisting.

He then relocated to the Detroit area, where he worked at William Beaumont Hospital facilities in both Royal Oak and Troy, Michigan, until 1998. He then moved to McKinney, Texas, just outside Dallas, where he worked until late 2016. For most of that time he specialized in outpatient geriatrics, working for six years at the Senior Health Center of McKinney and then 11 years at Mobile MD, for which he attended patients in skilled nursing facilities, assisted living, group homes and private residences.

Dennis earned his bachelor’s degree in Physician Assistant Science from the University of Nebraska in 1978. He is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Physician Assistants.
